Your project immediately reminded me of Eric Raymond's blog post from June 27, 2013: Keyboards are Not a Detail‎ Looks like you're solving a lot of ESR's complaints except one; it would be nice to use the buckling spring switch. But the patents have expired, so that is an option for the future once sales take off. In fact, for a small fee, Unicomp would be more than willing to manufacture this for you. Unicomp is very reasonable to work with. Talk to Jim. Looks like you've already done the hard parts that would be expensive to have Unicomp do; since those are done, the remaining work would be very cheap since you've done the heavy lifting.
Jesse, will your keyboard have N-key rollover? Or, it being USB and all, at least 5-key rollover/chording?
Any chance of having a split version, so I can place the two halves on my chair/desk and screw them down to the wood, but then screw it back to the one-piece base for use on the road? I miss my Kinesis; at this point I think your design beats the ErgoMagic by far, except for lack of a splitting feature. And even the ErgoMagic doesn't have the screw-holes so I can screw it down to my custom wood-work/metal-work. I'd like a keyboard that can blend seamlessly with my cyberpunk office furniture.
Care to do a trade? You make me a keyboard, I make you a "captains chair" with electro-luminescent lighting AKA "Tron" style?
