When's the next drop? :( Only got to know of ergodox and massdrop after the drop ended :(
I guess somewhere within September it drops again, and delivery gonna be on or after Christmas.
Where'd you get that info from? from geekhack? I'm deciding between this and a Matius Ergo Rpo to solve my RSI, Wrist and forearm strain and possible recurrent pinched right shoulder nerve
I am making an otherwise unreliable assumption, based on past drops. Popular items are usually re-dropped once previous run has shipped and whatever support issues are resolved. Current drop gets delivered late August. If they get to secure required BOM inventory, I guess they gonna do another one drop during September.
One way or another, I doubt Massdrop/IC will be able to deliver (on your door) another one round before November. If you need an immediate solution, I think it is safe to look somewhere else.
Hey Sakis, I appreciate the reply and all. Thanks for the heads up! I'll think about waiting. There's not many other commercially available keyboards available that operates with the level of flexibility and programmability quite like the ErgoDox Infinity kit.
I know. I ordered mine during a carpal syndrome crisis (crisis gone, ergodox still not here), and plan involves building a hole compatible metal backplate for permanently (or magnetically) attaching them halves onto chair's armrests, to also dodge elbow numbness.
For the time being, maybe using two (full size) keyboards, on same computer, could help you. One keyboard for each hand.
This drop has been delayed until September, due to parts that got damaged from a typhoon in Asia. Water damage, apparently.
There are second hand units of the earlier generations available. I actually have a couple if anyone is interested as I've also jumped on the third wave with USB-C as well. Massdrop a t deik.me for details.
When you say earlier generations do you mean the earlier generations of the infinity?
Yeah, I'd assume so. Like the one before this one didn't have usb-c adapters.
