Building a better keyboard

Building a better keyboard

I wanted a better keyboard but my plea to the industry had no effect. Since no one would make one for me I built the keyboard myself. My main goals were: Standard split-QWERTY layout mirroring the Microsoft Natural Keyboards No number pad High quality mechanical switches Bluetooth and USB-C connections Plug and play (no-solder) microcontroller replacement Layout Building a keyboard naturally starts with designing the key layout. I used the wonderful Keyboard Layout Editor to build a tweaked version of the classic Microsoft Natural Keyboard layout.
