My Microswitch Keyboard

I’ve constructed a 124-key microswitch keyboard. This uses Saia-Burgess low force microswitches – the best keyswitches I’ve been able to find so far.

The overall key layout is like the Kinesis and Maltron keyboards. The actual alphanumeric arrangement used owes much to my previous Kinesis layout.

As a bit of an experiment, I attempted to spread the keying load between flexor and extensor muscles – by positioning some of the switches in an inverted position.
