The Cincy Typing Challenge Finals were held Thursday at the Cincinnati Museum Center. Seven finalists from Saturday’s public competition met in head to head competitions.

Robert Price, of East Walnut Hills shut out the other finalists with gross speeds of up to 137 words per minute.

The competition promoted a new “rear-typing” technique which uses a rear-mounted split keyboard on a curved, handheld device. The product, still in development, is called “TREWGrip mobile QWERTY” for the user’s ability to type on a full-sized QWERTY-style keyboard while on the go.
