Was wondering if we can have a keyboard for left handed people? with the numpad being on the left side?
more_vert
Everytime I fall in love with a keyboard from Massdrop, I have this thought of I wish they made also a separate numpad with it, to place it in the left side for (tkl keyboard OR small keyboard). Else, I imagined how great it would be to have a full keyboard, the likes of Vortex VIBE Mechanical Keyboard with the numpad being in the left side.

If Drop makes a stand-alone tenkey/macro/numpad in the CTRL/ALT/SHIFT style, they should call it NUM LOCK. No problem, Drop, that idea's free.

I know that this is a relatively old topic, but just wanted to update you that there is a south paw 40% with number pad at the moment being offered by TKC (The Candy Bar). Just thought you'd want to check it out.

Do you actually use a number pad with your left hand though? I’m left-handed, but since every keyboard I use has the numpad on the right hand side, I wouldn’t feel comfortable with one on the left anyway. Mice are more of an issue for me! I’m comfortable using either hand, but it irritates me how few truly “ambidextrous” mice designs there are available.

As a matter of fact, I do use a numpad on my left hand. Being left-handed and imitating what is available (positioning of the numpad and mouse ) can push the boundaries into getting used to certain ergonomies, as using the mouse with the right hand.

I use a cospad with a DSA set so that I can use it separately as a left-hand numpad. For some reason despite being right handed I have a lot more dexterity with my left. I suggest using a cospad as well, and use DSA caps and give it an extra layer for a gamepad too.

Would You Guys Wanna See More Artisans?
Hey all The Skeleton here i've been talking with some users of geekhack and been seeing all of there amazing artisans and I have told them of getting more artisans on MD and they weren't exactly pleased they don't think artisans belong here. [image] But what do you think? Would you want some more artisans on Massdrop, they would of course have to be small drops but they would still be there at least.

ABS or PBT?
Ah the ancient keyboard argument what keycap material is better ABS or PBT. lets run through what makes each of these plastics special ABS cheaper smooth shiny (depending on the caps) easily smudge able (depending on the quallity) usually thinner PBT More expensive textured matte or semi matte usually cannot smudge generally thicker Both PBT and ABS can have double-shot legends applied to them and both have been used in high quality sets. Dasher and Dancer (ABS) [image] Granite (PBT) [image] So who wins? Well I sure don't know but you probably do and I want your opinions so please post which plastic is better AND what set you love most made from that plastic. :3 Or if you like POM caps that's cool too.

MiniVan keyboard with XDA Canvas Keycaps (Rams+40s Micons) little bit mysterious, sometimes mistyping, always amusing! It's a shame that "TheVan Keyboards" closed.
