ergodox

Here is a non-random list of stuff about this keyboard:

  • I built this keyboard.
  • It was fun.
  • I got the parts from Massdrop.
  • It was my first time soldering.
  • I messed up some of the soldering as you can see from the pics. But everything works!
  • It has Cherry MX Clear switches. I'm not sure if I like them. Too heavy. I think I'm gonna switch 'em.
  • I wish there was another column of keys so my "|\" key isn't in a stupid place.
  • My WPM dropped since using the Ergodox. I blame the Clear switches.
  • But it's pretty comfortable.
  • Building this was the nerdiest (geekiest?) thing I have ever done in my life.
