TinyMod2


This is enough change to warrant calling it TinyMod2 I think. Mostly the microcontroller has been moved under the PCB. There's no need to cover it with a 3D printed "case" anymore. I believe it looks much better without 3D printing, sleeker and smoother. There are also more standoffs for support. It's much more rigid. It feels more solid to write on this way. I'm very happy with the current keyboard and I hope you will be too.



The internals haven't changed. The firmware still supports two protocols, TX Bolt serial and NKRO keyboard. On my Windows machine I'm using NKRO because I can unplug and plug it back in without problems. For testing a new keyboard it's no problem to just plug it in and use it. It's just another USB keyboard to the operating system. On my Linux laptop I still use TX Bolt because NKRO is too laggy with Ubuntu 18.04. I don't know why, but it is.

For the time being at least, this will be the only keyboard I'm offering. If you're desperate to have one of the old classics or the hinge, we can negotiate something probably, but I'm not going to stock them anymore.

Price for the TinyMod is still $160 plus shipping. I'm going to try to have a few ready to go at any time. Just send me an email with your shipping address and I'll send you a PayPal invoice. Email me with questions or comments anytime. My email address is at the top of the screen.
