Re: DIY open-source trackball similar to MTE

Archie: How do you position your hand relative to the trackball? Is it parallel? Do you rest it on the trackball also?

Re: DIY open-source trackball similar to MTE

OK, I've printed it to test the ergonomics, because I'm planning to make my own trackball design. And I don't like it. If my hand/palm is parallel to the shell my hand/palm slips of from it. There is no ledge or anything else to stop it from falling. I have to put my hand on an angle, but then the b...

Do you have any idea where I could find balls for this thing? I tried searching for 1.75 balls, but it wasn't successful. :(

This keyboard would be a lot sturdier if you add several posts in the middle which touch the bottom to prevent the top from bending.

Please state the mount the kit will be mode for. I guess it will be cherry mx, but it is better to state this clearly.

I've hot glued cherry mx and I'll probably have to do the same on my in-the-works alps board. Alps have these wings or clips on the side which make them stick harder to the plate, so you could make it work without the glue. Cleaning hot glue shouldn't be an issue, because you could melt it gain and ...

I'm personally striving for simplicity.
I don't know why people waste their time with protocols and apps for configuring the layout.
Especially when they are about to make a single board.

The fun think about keyboards is that they are pretty simple, so one doesn't need any kind of OS.

The keyboard sends USB HID codes (defined here http://www.usb.org/developers/hidpage/Hut1_12v2.pdf) Then the HID driver interprets them as the appropriate symbols. If you want to have non default shift+Something keys you need to implement your own protocol and then write a keyboard driver that suppo...

The bolts and spacer idea is pretty neat. It solves one problem with the acrylic keyboard designs.
Do you glue the spacer in the middle plate? Do you use a hexagonal spacer?
