Ilya Leonov aka lemosbor posted his Lapa, a pretty interesting split keyboard-mouse with built-in mouse sensors.
Lapa (Лапа) means paw in Russian, which refers to tha fact that you use this keyboard "without moving the hands" – at least not raising, hovering and reaching for the mouse all the time.
This approach is pretty rare but not unique, the Mouseky and the Keymouse reflect similar concepts.
- 36 keys
- The wrist-rest is part of the keyboard and is located higher than the main row keys.
- Built-in mouse sensor
- The thumb keys are located on a separate part of the case, much higher than other keys.
- Keywell with per-column arcs.
- The surface of the lowest key is at a distance of 2 cm from the table.
In addition, the oak pad for resting the wrist is replaceable, the halves are connected by a Russian connector type (РШ2Н-1-6) and they snap together by magnets for transport.
- Project page on Github (just photos and description, no project files).
