You gotta make 'em stay, at least those that come bargin' in with stuff like this!
And regarding I2C vs SPI, don't see him needing those two extra lines I2C would grant on a usb bus, but seeing there's already code out might make it interesting nonetheless.
Nice thumbbuttons on the split version of your first (first pic in OP at least) board though ML's (and I assume you didn't make it with so much space that MX's including caps can fit nicely) and on that single right handed design in the bottom, does that frontmost button actually sit slightly lower?
Now i'm starting to get curious, you didn't by any chance make your ML design with MX spacing or did you?
hehehehe, you DID! N1.
just (quite) a few cuts and it can fit switches that bind less
Also, regarding your giveaway, I'd definitely say get them to those that got you to make them in the first place; on second thought, getting them actually used might be best, so make sure they do.
edit1: Oh and Dox, nice to see you around here!
*ofc you don't know me, but I've lurked enough GH threads to know you/r work; nice!
Just to make it clear I'm not begging to nab your designs (nor ergodox/key64); I'm definitely gonna be ending up with some type of ergoboard, but the first step in that is trying to find nice relaxing fingerpositions; ofcourse using the work that others have already done; basically reinventing the wheel while building on the shoulders of giants; so when I read that you'd been going back n forth with colleagues about ergonomics, it really peaked my interest, but didn't yet want to ruin the thread with talk on that; now it's that time though:
Tell me, what have you learned so far from your experiments and all that you've read on those matters?
I'm still even attracted to a convex board for the fingertips; initially thought your latest had that until I saw your hand on it, and decided that having the front slanted for thumbs is more essential; yet it's still alluring to test out, even in the face of the ergonomics that the DataHand set forth, namely, short movement using the fingertip's surroundings.
I know that convex could potentially make it very tricky to actually press down on thing without having to bring your fingertips back to those points (i.e. curling your fingers in).
