First problem.  That wifi card needs more power than the teensy can give it.

This is really cool, how come you never went for the offset key rows?
Its cool, I suppose the answer to that is "because I wanted straight rows!"

Just thinking if you had any intention to sell/make this for others, a familiar design would be more welcome. Also I hear talk of a wrist pad?

If the whole thing stands no taller then a standard keyboard, I'd say leave the wristpad as either optional or detachable?

Just blurting all this at you because basically I would like one of these very much sir! (With offset keys, standing no taller then a normal keyboard, without a wristpad.) That would pretty much be a perfect layout for me.

I'm a little jealous that I won't get or be able to make one of these :(.

Yes, the intention is to finalize a feature set against a specific design in such a way so that it's (relatively) easy to reproduce and therefore sell.  So far, it's been easier than modding and orbweaver.

Well that's actually surprising to hear, but welcome.

Guess I'll have to follow this, and hope it somehow ends up close to something I'd like and want to use. I get this is your baby, but I feel rather strongly about the offset keys, its the one area I felt most if not all other keypads drop the ball.

Honestly, I prefer non offset.  There will be at least one PCB revision, so it's conceivable that I can produce two different PCB's... one offset and one not.  As far as removable wrist support goes, the enclosure design is still up in the air.

Regardless of my thoughts, this is a no brained awesome idea.
So many XIM users here will jump on this.

The whole reason I bought the Orb was to free up not only my Desk but the plugging / unplugging of my primary keyboard. (I'd tried a USB switcher, but it wasn't consistent enough)

The Orb's shape and layout was horrible, I still felt like there should have been a proper "space bar" type button in place of that clicky flappy panel. Also the incline and wristpad were awkward too..

The one true thing we can all agree on, is the fact that a keyboards height and general layout out is not only familiar, but comfortable too.

Im an offical Orbweaver Policeman, i hear by inform you to CEASE work on this atrocity!
Heathen!
Its a monstrosity!

Joke!  ;D ;D

A massive gap in the market Tuff is the left handed players, if you could consider a ambidextrous or a home modifiable options (eg pop the thumb stick over on the left side)

Love it, saw it on your stream, wish i had the brains to do this kinda stuff.

Left handed ability has been on my mind from the start.  I have ideas for how to implement it.  Fret not.

Only because Tuesday the 5th of May, i stood by your bed and whispered into your ear:

THINK OF THE LEFTIES.

Oh, just so you know, it was me that opened the curtains that night.....and i made sure the fridge door was closed, im not sure why it got stuck open.

Tuff, the design of having three dpads around the stick is quite interesting. Id do two d-pads left and below the thumb stick and a cherry below as kinda shift button.
