A keyboard method is described that allows a user to form Chinese characters. The user's keystrokes activate internal logic, which performs the necessary scaling and positioning of the character components. An initial design using a 40-key keyboard is described, together with approximations of the character shapes produced by given keying sequences. Rough estimates of speed range from eight to 33 characters per minute.
