Let’s face it, indoor training kinda sucks. But our friends at Zwift.com have made it suck a lot less. Actually they made it kinda fun. Zwift allows you to ride with real friends and cyber friends in a virtual world. You interact with the environment with (besides your bike) a keyboard, a mouse and a phone app. It is great as is, but we’ve come up with a more intuitive interface we call VeloKey.
VeloKey is a Bluetooth interface to Zwift that consists of two a 1.8 inch dis,play thumbwheels, and a power up button.
VeloKey’s main screen allows you to navigate the Zwift world, and control the camera angles with ease.
Double-click the right scrollwheel to kick into Etch-a-mouse mode: left thumbwheel controls left-right mouse motions and the right thumbwheel controls the up-down mouse movement. Pressing either thumbwheel acts as a mouse button. Press both button’s in succession to get a double click on the connected computer.
Double click the left scrollwheel to activate the keyboard mode complete with caps, lowercase, letters and numbers, and don’t forget backspace.
VeloKey make riding indoors even more fun!
