Progress

Done

TODO

  • contact P. Jakoubek, D. Kolibáč, and L. Hejkal regarding the plastic parts of scissor switches (injection moulding into a steel/aluminium mold?)
  • choose a better fitting HW license (similar to MIT and CC BY-SA 4.0, but with a notion about HW patents in a way, that anyone using this or derived work can't be sued)
  • investigate double-trackpoint/point_stick placement - (un)mountable?, each half it's own and fixed?, 90°-rotated thumb micro-switches on the side?
  • marketing (Student Agency - no place for keyboard; ...)
  • add numeric keyboard to be successful on market

Remarks

Links for inspiration

Wishlist features

  • selection from different variants (perhaps configurable)
    • Standard (full-featured big keyboard for power users)
    • Standard Wireless
    • Mini (cut-down version for portability and presentation)
    • Mini Wireless
  • both halfs
  • fixture/handle/hinge to fix both halfs together in a space-saving manner
  • backlit
  • backlight (adjustable)
  • anti-slippery stands (perhaps sucking disks)
  • maybe water-proof
