I've been using a TinyMod exclusively for the past two months. There was some question in my mind about whether or not I'd get used to or even like having the number key as the center thumb key and whether or not I would find it to be ergonomic enough. The answer is YES to both questions.
I don't think I can stress enough how much I like having the number key in the thumb position! I was pretty good with numbers before, but I feel much more fluid and confident doing numbers using my right thumb. I added a dictionary to make reversing pairs of numbers easier, see former post for details.
I haven't had any issues with my wrists either. This layout seems to be very good for my hands. This is something that varies from person to person of course, but the small layout can be very comfortable!
As you can see, I've also replaced the wood bottom with a bare printed circuit board and covered the Arduino with a little plastic case. It's even more compact than before, both a little smaller and a little lighter.
Price is still $160 plus shipping. $200 for the hinge or classic models. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your shipping address and which model you want if you're interested.
