After decades of coding, even worse, like many heavy Emacs user, I nearly don’t move my hands away from keyboard.
I’m suffering from RSI (repetitive strain injury) problem.
I have tried some ergonomic keyboards, like Goldtouch Adjustable, Infinity Ergodox, Model01. (Xah Lee have reviews of them.) However, the RSI still stay with me.
As a asian, I have small hands. The ergonomic keyboards I used still require me to twist wrist. So to build my own one is necessary.
It’s curve and the top row is higher then others. I named it
- Able to adjust the angle
- Thumb can control 5 keys
- Nearly no need to twist the wrist to press any key
Is there a pair of socks on your desk? Yes, it is. Just put some napkins into them and glue it to the desk. You see the right one can even share to the trackball. In fact, that’s my proud part. :)
I can give more information of the building, if you guys have interest to it.
How I feel
I have used it to daily coding for about 1 month. It hard to say my RSI is recovering or not. But it really comfortable to typing.
