Tested Builds: ErgoDox Mechanical Keyboards, Part 4

An extra long episode today as Will and Norm decide that they want to build two complete keyboards instead of collaborating on one. With twice the effort, we double our chances for a successful build! Plus, we get better at soldering those tiny diodes the second go around.

  1. My guess is has less keys that do something — in part because I reckon the right hand side has more programmable keys which need to be configured. The other part is because I think Will has a tendency to leap first, ask questions later!

    EDIT: wait…. you meant over the whole keyboard, didn’t you… my answer stands!

  2. I think the magic collection your looking for is the Klostermans Salon de Magie collection.

    Ken Klosterman is the owner of Klosterman Baking Company and has one of the premier magic collections.

  3. really enjoying this series. I think you guys should tackle building a reprap 3d printer as one of these

  4. The whole time Will was berserkly testing keys, I’m thinking of the little check box in keyboard settings in control panel that turns on the menu bar option that lets you see the onscreen keyboard which reacts to all keypresses, which is just what you need to identify the modifier keys.

  5. he he, watching this post Ultron release. Turns out most of its profit was made from overseas. Not sure how that stacks with the multipliers your talking about but the fight did make a huge dent in the American market but didn’t stop the rest of the globe from helping it get to number 5 (last I checked).
    I wonder how much countries of the world make in opening weekend compared to the USA? Is the States still the money maker for Holywood’s AAA english movies, or has it shifted in the past years?
