Re: How many left handers are involved in robotics?

I write left handed, use a mouse with my right hand, kick with my right foot, play baseball and basketball with my left hand and play hockey and lacrosse with my right hand. However, I wouldn't consider myself ambidextrous unless I could write with both.

The only problem is drawings with the mouse. Everything else is okay.

Yeah. The only reason I use a mouse with my right hand is because the mouse is always on the right side of the keyboard at a computer. To switch it every time would be annoying.

But yes, being able to use a mouse while writing is kind of cool, however, I had never really thought about it as something unique to lefties.
