Guys I think the forehead grows on u, give it a chance maybe lol.
Hoping for some cool sides and a through-weight, to differentiate from Physix.

Agreed, I’m starting to dig it

Maybe like a knob, a big one, right in the middle. Or like a slider. Or a swing set.

Not a fan of the styling choices on this one from the hingepoint between the F5-6 key that's got to be 40mm to the top edge.

Actually hate it more the more I look at it - At least the Ergo somewhat had the illusion of symmetry because it didn't have the forehead. On this the angle of the left and right side bezels are totally different and because of the forehead you can really tell; it'll look awful in my opinion.

TKL with split spacebar!

Is it possible for the PCB to support a different split on the right spacebar?

Something like (1.25x + longer split)

The reason being with the current (long 2.75u + short 1u), you can only comfortably access one key under the right thumb (the 1u key under 'm' & ',' is too far away)

If there are two keys easily accessible, one can bind spacebar + ctrl on the right side, or if you use left thumb for spacebar, then any combo of shift, ctrl, enter, backspace.

Please kindly consider it, at least if there's a solder version of the PCB.

Thanks

(BTW, a vertical 1.5u or 2u in the center might be very handy for ergo keyboard, as a enter or backspace)

Hello Everyone,

Will PCBs be available separately, and will the PCBs be compatible with the LZ Ergo?  I was never able to get any one onboard/willing to reverse engineer the Ergo's PCB without some sort of massive payment.

Did something happen to your PCB?

I am absolutely in on this!  I do have another question... Were there ever a release of the LZ Ergo cad files or any plans to release them?

My Pcb works, more or less, but would love one where I could use the backlight or indicator LEDs without fear of having to dig out an ISP loader to reflash over corrupted firmware...

I ported mine to QMK + Via and things seem somewhat better. 
RGB is still problematic so I disabled it, but the rest seems ok.

This is a CHONK.

Really excited to see further updates/developments for this board.

I don't think the filled in space on top would look too odd once it was in front of you, although I'd like a groove or pocket for pens or other desk junk up there.  I do hope this gets made, just to have more of these types of boards in the wild, even though it's somewhat simplified from the first generation.
