The Ergonomic Steampunk Keyboard

Datamancer — steampunk modder and long time Jake von Slatt stoogeling extrordinaire — has released his latest keyboard mod. It began its life as a rare IBM Model M-15 split ergonomic keyboard, before it was fitted with the usual steampiunk flourishes of burnished brass, acanthus-leaf etchings, violet LEDs and typewriter keys, with a lovely little trackpad in the center and a soft burgundy wrist pad. I quite like it, although I'm struggling to conceptually link Victorian technology with ergonomic design.

    stoogeling? WTF John? If you saw our stuff up close you’d realize I’m a hack compared to the Datamancer.
