Just read a blog post about someone mentioning [albeit a few years back] that there might be a fully programmable TypeMatrix 2030 version.  Anybody know if this is still in the works? That would be the ultimate keyboard for me - plus way less effort than the Ergodox concept.

+Mark Senn​ Simply that the TypeMatrix comes fully assembled as standard and has various modes / layouts out of the box.

Anybody knows a way to switch [play], [contextual menu] and [toggle window] keys with [cut], [copy] and [paste] under Linux ? I think it will be more productive to have [cut], [copy] and [paste] keys without pressing [Fn]… +Bépo user

I've been wondering the same thing. Single key presses will be way better.

I signed up for an ErgoDox keyboard group buy.  If the group buy goes through (i.e., has enough people signed up) I'll write a review of the TypeMatrix 2020 vs. the ErgoDox.  #keyboard #TypeMatrix #ErgoDox
Massdrop helps people buy together as a group to get awesome prices for things they want. The bigger the group, the better the price!

I haven't assembled the kit yet.  I've got solder, soldering gun and need to get around to going this.

I'm interested in buying TypeMatrix 2020 keyboards with Dvorak-only labeled keys.  Apparently the Dvorak-only 2020s are no longer being manufactured.  #TypeMatrix #Dvorak

Hello everyone

I'm a programmer who's fond of touchtyping and general keyboard efficiency through Vim, Quicksilver and modifying my keyboard layout to move everything as close to home row as possible. I've been reading about the TypeMatrix 2030, and it sounds excellent, so I thought I'd join this group to keep tabs on what's going on. So hey! Looking forward to (maybe) getting one, hopefully after getting a chance to check it out in person :)

Hey Mark, cheers :) I'm not used to asking for free trials, so I have no idea if that's going to work - especially seeing as how I live in Denmark! It's not exactly bursting with specialty electronics outlets here :) I also have my eyes on a Truly Ergonomic - https://www.trulyergonomic.com/store/index.php . It's a bit more expensive, but it also looks very good, maybe a little better than the TypeMatrix, layoutwise. And it's mechanichal, which I read is the bomb, although I have no experience with it - it might be a bit noisy, which could detract from the value when I'm using it around other people.

I hope there'll be some sort of electronics mess in Copenhagen soon where I get the chance to try them both, but it's not likely.

I am considering buying a #TypeMatrix 2030. I have been having very minimal wrist pain when typing (standard American keyboard, qwerty) and I want to avoid further problems. My question is this: does the TypeMatrix on qwerty help with that? I am not concerned with typing speed as much as I am with the wrist health, but later down the road I want to try out the TypeMatrix with dvorak. Any thoughts?

I recently switched to the TypeMatrix 2030 (dvorak) from a standard keyboard with dvorak. Dvorak already made a HUGE difference for me. The TypeMatrix improves it even further. My biggest struggle after switching to the TypeMatrix [only for a short while] was that I was overreaching and accidentally typed the wrong key on occasion. That just proved to me that the TypeMatrix definitely improves on other designs - less stretching of the fingers is a good thing. I love this keyboard!

Hi, I'm a french computer scientist, python-lover. Started using a typematrix keyboard a bit over one year ago, and immediatly learned to type in bépo (french dvorak equivalent) with it, i'm quite happy with the silence provided by the skin, and the nice number of things you can do without moving from the home row, thanks to the large ctrl key, and the fn key, that you can hit with your palms.

I'm 6 feet (183 cm) tall, weigh 320 pounds (145 kg), and have fat fingers for someone of that height and weight.  I've tried using the TypeMatrix 2030 but the bigger TypeMatrix 2020 keyboard is more comfortable for me.  #TypeMatrix

I've been using TypeMatrix keyboards on my work and home computers for many years.  I started with the TypeMatrix 2020 in QWERTY mode (big improvement over anything I've used earlier) and later learned Dvorak (still bigger improvement).  I'm not connected with TypeMatrix in any way except as a very satisfied customer.  #TypeMatrix #QWERTY #Dvorak
