Re: Price Check: How much is my _____ worth?

I'm thinking of selling my Symbolics 3600 . The linked thread is almost 10 years old. It has been shelved/boxed since. Any idea what's realistic for these today? Mildly interesting side story: looking at the old photos, I realized the keyboard had come with a cable. Which was not there when I picked...

Sorry for the long delay. We're going to open-source the project. Case design files, KiCad files, (unfinished) firmware, Node Webkit host app, etc. Took me some time to realize we're not going to finish it. We had 2.5 developers working on this for a few months, well, you can do the cost-related mat...

The reason is that company money went into this. So as long as I have a chance to get some of that back, I have to try it.

A friend knows a guy who does firmware programming. Currently looking if he's interested.

Short travel ftw! ;) No progress at all. :( Moving the shop is finished. Some stuff left but that can wait. I haven't been able to find someone for the firmware programming. I won't have time in the near future. Not sure how to proceed now. I could either completely open source the project, or parti...

You can program any keyboard button as a mouse button. Or press the Trackpoint harder for scrolling, the pressure is programmable.

The move is finally done since last Friday. Now I have to set up everything. That alone will take me way beyond Christmas. :(

I just started a new effort to build a firmware team. If this fails too I'll need outside help. Meaning one of you. :-)

:D if its going into production - split spacebars? ISO and HHKB support? If... No split space bar, there's no space for two switches and stabilizers AND the mouse buttons. But there's the touch controller so it should be possible to detect what side of the space bar has been hit. ISO and HHKB is alr...

I have a new shop now but stuff is still in storage. Have to move it the next days and set it all up again. This will take weeks.

In Rev D this is solved. :)

And I'm not even sure this is a good thing. Because having it here in front of me I don't see it and the bigger case radiuses are actually nice.

Yesterday I finished the Rev B version (the white one) electronics and mechanics. Firmware is unfinished, the bootloader doesn't work yet. And the connection to the desktop interface isn't there. Pointing stick acceleration could be faster. But writing works, as you can see here. :shock: Not sure if...

URL says it's the 653-D2FS-F-N.

The switch part is milled from aluminum, the hinge socket in the case too. This requires some precision, not easy to do by hand.

Hey fruitsaladfingers, the move is still in progress. Still working on finishing things for that. Many are not keyboard related. During the last weeks I put together the "white case" prototype which will be a RevB. Firmware is working (with a fixed layout), bootloader not yet. The initial plan was t...

Much better than the $1200 Symbolics mouse that popped up lately:

That mouse was black though.

Firmware Group: not yet. But I'm optimistic. I had another case milled (the third one) which is waiting for finishing. Case will be matte black, hopefully powdercoated. The finishing has to happen this month as I have to move the workshop soon. This month or next. Still not sure when. I also had ano...

I received new pcbs 2 days ago. Have to figure out which parts I need.

I also try to set up a "firmware group" here at the office. Not sure if this will work out. :)

Nothing new.

Started with Atmel Studio but the project wouldn't compile. Too much work ATM to figure this out. Also, we have to find a new workshop as the building with the current one will be torn down end of April.

The mouse buttons are just part of the key matrix. You can re-program these as keys or other keys as mouse buttons... There should be a solution somewhere. Key in the lower left for ex. I never need it for anything. Or Meta+RightClick as MiddleClick. Or use the Touch controller. Mechanically a third...
