work in progress: layout experiment for sculpted split column-staggered ergonomic ~40% .

goals:

- "key bowls" like the Kinesis Advantage, but not a copy

- uniform caps like DSA but sculpted profile like (or better than) SA/OEM/Cherry. lets me freely rearrange caps to match whatever weird symbol layout i come up with (cheaper too)

- parameterized to match finger length

- if i can't reach a key without moving my arm, lose it

- cheap FDM 3d print without support material

3d modeling is hard 🤕

i thought this random work-in-progress shot looked kindof cool though

new battlestation arrangement coming together

but i'm loathe to call it that because idgaf about battling my peers

what's a fun word for an operations console for constructive, cooperative activities
such as seizing the means of production

brain: with a LIMITED number of colors, this is how you would stylistically depict a SUNSET on the OCEAN HORIZON (west coast obvs) and these lines are REFLECTIONS over WAVES receding into the DISTANCE. they DONT MAKE SENSE otherwise

me: ok, but why are you mad about this? and hey that kindof reminds me of--

brain: ALL THESE VAPORWAVE AESTHETIC IMAGES ARE DOING IT WRONG CARGO CULT BULLSHIT

me: it's just nice art, relax

My wike, like me, prefers a small . However I prefer _fewer_ keys where she prefers _smaller_ keys. Way smaller!

This is pretty much the only keyboard she enjoys, the Sanwa Supply SKB-SL28. While standard key pitch is 19.5mm square, this is 13.5mm vertical and 16mm wide for the alphabet, and a miniscule 12mm for many modifier keys!

I can't even custom-build with this pitch; the switch hardware is too big!

SA profile F4 key for scale.

Massdrop x Oblotzky Oblivion SA profile keycaps on my Mitosis split wireless ergonomic

(Finally, after 9 months of waiting!)

therecently, i hooked up a usb isp programmer to the pro micro and made the mistake of connecting its vcc pin to the pin marked vcc on the pro micro (i should have connected it to "raw.")

the pro micro started smoking!

welp, this means i can go back to using a 5v

so i got that put together and decided to try connecting a 5 cent speaker. did, enabled the option in the firmware, and now my ergonomic wireless mechanical keyboard plays a happy song when it turns on! it was surprisingly simple!

i've been envying @vilmibm's new mitosis because it has a low profile neoprene base, compared to a bulky acrylic case on mine

i thought i couldn't simply remove my case, because the screws that attach it could not be extracted from the plate/pcb sandwich without unsoldering all the switches.

i just learned through experimentation that they recede into the board just enough that (although i can't get them out) they don't rattle around or short circuit

so now my mitosis is low profile too 👍

glamour shot of @vilmibm's new mitosis. look at that slim profile just look at it.

we sat in the sun painstakingly cleaning up every knockout on the plates with strips of abrasive paper. fiberglass dust? yolo.
we diagnosed and repaired a solder bridge that formed behind tiny pins, under the wireless module.
we (re)learned how to convince belligerent software to do the thing.
we breathed too much solder smoke.
the results speak for themselves.
teamwork y'all

heck yeah i had a great time helping my friend @vilmibm bring another mitosis into the world

and i'm kinda jealous, his with neoprene base and kailh box navy thick clicky bois is more cybre than mine!

experimenting

this is the left side of a split keyboard that fits within 10cm square

the goal here was to tweak the layout of the mitosis such that all keys are reachable without moving the wrist

i'm grumpy about photos of collections of in display cases

it's like framing expensive running shoes or circular saws on the wall

they're tools! better tools than their mass-manufactured counterparts, and they're too expensive for many people who would otherwise enjoy using them

most of their appeal is in the layout, keyfeel, firmware features, led effects, and hackability

they should be used!

give (or sell at a discount) your extra to someone who needs it!

harumph
