    • Not as crazy as your friend but I built myself an Ergodox two years ago that has been in daily use ever since. Ended up transitioning due to the same reasons of wrist pain and numbness. The layout is QWERTY but with various system keys relocated for more ergonomic default system shortcuts. So far it's been a joy.

      The biggest change for me was moving the Ctrl key to the thumb cluster for easy copy/paste as well as having the arrow keys on the JIKL keys (I know not vi friendly). Those two changes were one of the main contributors of my pain and have since resolved.

    • I just can’t see taking this on the road for work. I can only imagine what it would be like to try to get this through airport security. But it is interesting. I had something similar to @Toly ’s design, I think it was a Kinesis. But it actually caused more problems than cure. I’ve been using a Microsoft Natural keyboard for over ten years now and it has a slight “split” to it, which makes a standard keyboard feel like pounding into concrete by comparison. So I’ve been quite happy with the Natural keyboard.

      And of course, you do clean your keyboard regularly. Right? 👇
