    Here is the rough USD equivalent price in my country. Btw Wacom had a free Wacom Ergo stand offer with any 24" Cintiq Pro bought last weekend. Saving of $400-500! I hope they do that offer again!!!!

    On second thought the Wacom stand locks in only 2 places. Users are not that happy with it! Could this be the answer?

    Yes, I watched that video. Xoot is an Interesting stand. I was thinking about the Wacom Flex Arm.

    That Xoot looks nice. For me, I actually swing the Cintiq out so its not really in front of me. That Wacom arm is most likely a re-branded ergotron arm. I'm not saying that should detract from it but you might be able to get it cheaper by buying the vesa mount and arm elsewhere. The mount standalone and with their own arm is the same. I do think their model is the higher end erog though. I am using the HP re-branded one and really had to tighten that thing.

    Has anyone figured out a monitor arm setup (without wobble) that also allows access to the keyboard?

    All the designs I have encountered so far all still seem trade screen stability by blocking the keyboard, or require an awkward top-mount.

    After about 30 years of digital desktop drawing, and still no ergonomic solution has been found?

    Not I. I know it's possible to buy a second arm for an ergotron. Some are specifically for KB. I wonder if you paired it with and extender arm if that would word. Something like this:

    That thing you posted is like $60. That doesn't even look that usable. I did see another guy post some kind of hookup like this:

    No idea what that thing is though. I tried searching for it but struck out.

    There is this......the Tap Wearable Keyboard. It can be used as full keyboard....(with a significant learning curve as you'd expect), I bought one a few weeks ago figuring it would be way more practical and useful for just keyboard shortcuts on tablets (Galaxy Book/Surface Pro) without built in express keys, or in usage scenarios where the Surface Dial or Express Key remotes would be impractical (Life drawing classes without a desk).

    Sadly.....for art endeavors it unfortunately has a rather fatal flaw. Hardwired into the left ring finger key.....is an auto/shut off command....where if you tap that specific finger 3 times quickly (as one would do for many keyboard shortcuts like Brush resizing).....it autoshuts off the device.....and tragically in Photoshop and ClipStudio....that auto shut off command also inadvertently clears you're entire layer/canvas of work.....even Undo can't retrieve the work. And since the whole system works by tapping....its too easy to accidentally trigger the shut off command. I messagedthe company about this flaw......waiting and hoping they offer some kind of fix someday. But if they do.....this really could be the ideal companion tool for digital artists.

    Expresskey Remote.
    Worked fine with the Cintiq 27.

    Interesting...so a mini-arm. I wonder how stable that keyboard would be with the palm resting on it.

    Man with a few more spidery contraptions on your desk, your room's going to start looking like Doctor Octopus' lab. :D

    Wow, this is crazy. I love that you're going to such length to experiment on a solution!

    Please keep us updated if you get a fix for the shut-off command firing, and also tell us if you finally adapt a fluid workflow with the tap gestures. Very cool concept! :thumbsup:
