Your project immediately reminded me of Eric Raymond's blog post from June 27, 2013: Keyboards are Not a Detail http:/
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?
