Another model published as part of weteor's Orthocade family: the Froggr is an ortholinear keyboard with 43-48 keys and an offset bottom row.

Froggr, which extends to 12u to have room for standard modifiers. Build this for my wife, because she wanted to learn touch typing and I think 12u is a lot easier to get into than 10u – weteor.
