This is an issue for me. A few days before I ordered this keyboard, I broke my collarbone playing rugby tackle. This was supposed to arrive soon after my surgery, and it would give me the ability to use a keyboard with a sling (left half on lap, right on desk). I'm a computer freelancer and until then, I basically cannot use a computer.
Why not use 2 complete keyboards in the mean time?
Want to borrow a 1st gen ergodox in the meanwhile? There's also non-dropped ways of building them out. I've got 2 sets of gaterons, pcbs can be had for $35 and the rest of the stuff's probably another $60 from digikey + teensy.
Hey, I really appreciate the offer, but I'll be out of the sling very soon, and be able to use a regular keyboard. What is the cheaper route? The key caps for this keyboard have been sitting in my drawer for a month or two, so I already have those. Is it going to be cheaper to buy and assemble it myself?
I priced it out and it was around the same cost. I consider my time an added expense even assuming nothing goes wrong. It'd be a fun project, but I dont wan't to wait any more than I have to. My daughter makes my little tinkering projects slightly more difficult to complete.
