ErgoDox - Custom split ergo keyboard.

(1/747) > >>

Dox:
I started designing a "OTD class" split ergo keyboard this weekend based on the key64 and I was thinking that maybe we could make it possible if there was some people interested.

The design is not final and there is still a lot of work to be done but here is where I am.

Current design (based on feedback and comments) still not final:

THE LAYOUT PRESENTED IS NOT FINAL. THE CONTROLLER WILL BE PROGRAMMABLE.

The price will be high 400$ (highly depending on how many we are).

What would be included:
Full CNC anodized aluminium case and plate,
PCB.

What may be included or self-served:
Switches,
Keycaps,
Diodes,
Cable,
Teensy,
Assembly

I am considering a soldering service: if someone else wants to do this, I'll add their info, but if no-one else wants to, I might do it. Anything to help the project!

List of people offering some sort of soldering/assembly service

--- Code: ---The Profosist (USA)
Dork Vader (USA)
Geekabit (EU)
Dirge (UK)
localredhead (?)

--- End code ---
(I am sure there will be others when the time comes)

If you're interested, PM me or post in this topic.
Please also tell me if I missed you, or have any mistakes.

Dox:
It have a slope if you look at the side picture but it was easier to only model some flat spherical keycaps. Final keycap shape is not determined yet and my be left to the user.

Yes the headers are for connecting the 2 halves.

iWuzHere:
That looks pretty sweet, though price is quite high

demik:
that looks awesome
