Shay aka wannabecoffeenerd modified mmccoyd's original Hillside and created HillSideView (HSV) with nice!view displays and many other new features.
While looking for my first ergo mech keyboard, I wanted something small with choc switches (and spacing), splay and wireless support. The Hillside 46 looked really nice but I wanted to make some changes to it including support for the nice!view, a large battery and the cirque trackpad. That prompted creating a fork of the Hillside 46 called the HillSideView (HSV) – shaysub.
40-46 keys (6x3+5 or 5x3+5), splay
low-pro Choc switches, soldered, Choc spacing
break-off outer pinkie column
underglow, encoder support, tenting puck support
6x3 HSV version
New features compared to the Hillside 46:
nice!view e-paper display for better battery life
under-PCB mount for the MCU for a cleaner top display mounting
cleaner outer pinky column cut-off
support for a Cirque trackpad (FFC connector on the PCB)
case design supporting large 750-3000 mAh batteries under the PCB
