Saddle up!

October 19, 2016, 7:16 AM · The last prototype functioned pretty well, but there was no way for it to maintain alignment on the hand, especially during shifts, but also simply in putting the device on your hand.

I then came up with the concept of a saddle type shape which accomplishes two things; it limits the device from rotating around the thumb, and it helps transfer the weight of the instrument into the hand itself.

This was the first "saddle" shaped prototype.

The shape needed some more refinement, but the support of the neck was great.
