The design gets better and better. The butterfly keyboard has great thumb keys, but has a novel innovation: palm key! You just push down your palm to activate it.

Jesse plans to manufacture them. For news, see: http://launch.keyboard.io/

Atreus Keyboard

Atreus keyboard by Phil Hagelberg. 42 keys.
   q     w     e     r     t       ||       y     u     i     o    p
   a     s     d     f     g       ||       h     j     k     l    ;
   z     x     c     v     b       ||       n     m     ,     .    /
  esc   tab    fn  shift bksp ctrl || alt space enter super pgup  pgdn

The numbers and most punctuation are on the Fn layer:

   1     2     3     4    5        ||       6     7     8     9    0
   -     +     (     )    =        ||       /     [     ]     {    }
   !     @     #     $    %        ||       ^     &     *     ?    ~
                                   ||       `     _     \

the interesting thing about the Atreus is that it doesn't have the top row of number keys. And, it doesn't have the key columns on the sides neither. (that's normally for {Tab ↹, ⇧ Shift, Ctrl, `, Return ↩, ⌫ Backspace, …} keys).

The Atreus minimize key count extremely, with a total of only 42 keys. So, the Atreus is the most compact. To access number and symbols such as {! @ # $}, you need to press a combination with a modifier key. It's large thumb keys isn't right under the thumbs, so i think this is a bit extreme.
