Description

It turns out that thumb keys are pretty standard for ergonomic split keyboards: their design enables enough space to fit these keys and explicitly values hand conformity over rectangular symmetry.

The Advantage 360 Pro looks in contrast to other ergo split keyboards to be build more like a stable, industrial manufactured product here. Luckily, a person (Michael Stapelberg) thought like me, and they hacked and modded the Kinesis Advantage2 to support QMK. There is more competition and options in the mechanical keyboard landscape than even a couple of years ago, and I suspect developments in both hardware and firmware have enabled—maybe even created a sense of urgency—Kinesis to update their flagship product line to something a bit more modern. Hopefully Kinesis can help fund ZMK to make some kind of more polished GUI for the 360 because the current system, for all but the coneheads, is honestly a bit pants. A bit like the hard wrist rests on the Moonlander, without the pads is actually fine and in some ways preferable.The fully programmable Advantage360 features Kinesis's new-and-improved SmartSet Programming Engine which allows you to customize the keyboard's layout without installing any clunky software or special drivers, or accessing the internet.

Refer to the Advantage360 Pro Support Page for more information regarding setting up a Github account. If you prefer to use onboard programming to quickly reconfigure your keyboard, which is a hallmark of Kinesis’s SmartSet Engine, you’ll want to stick with the base model. Tactility” is a slightly elevated force around the midpoint of the stroke of the key which lets you know the switch is about to be activated. Unlike key wells, none of these axes are actually in use while keying; they are stable, so they add tension but not overuse. I have the delete key (which is next to it in the thumb cluster) act as an extra Ctrl key when held down.

The only thing that does it decently is my speaker, but for keyboard and mouse I have a KVM switch (that tries to do something smart with the keyboard that leads to dropped keys, which is also mega annoying).

Now, I’m a Web Developer by trade, so Git is familiar to me and I got through all these shenanigans fairly easily but for a professional that isn’t a software developer, it’s just a whole lot of friction. Another distinct feature of the Kinesis Advantage360 is its concave keywell, which helps to limit the amount of stretching one might normally do when typing on a flat plane.Even if your keyboard lasts a week that means that once a week in the middle of something it just dies. Building touch typing fluency, including syntax and commands for multiple applications, into muscle memory. e. no layers) version of Atreus that's still portable by having some smaller keys, will eventually talk about it more on https://reddit. I'm convinced they used such a weird placement of some things like that to prompt/goad people into exploring the built-in remapping.

I would like to be able to change the volume with a single key press, or step the debugger, or refresh the webpage, etc. Engaged by specialists in office ergonomics, EWP's range of products and services will assist in maximising work and comfort, while minimising and eliminating risks of pain and injury.The reality is that right now, it’s all cobbled together and doesn’t feel that different than managing your firmware as a hobbyist. The Advantage360 also goes into standby mode (after 30 seconds), so they don't consume much energy when not in use. The Pro version, KB360-PRO-GB, uses the open source ZMK firmware for vast customization options for power-users.
