The Truly Ergonomic Keyboard “cleave” is announced around 2018-08-01. It began shipping around 2021-03.
Total number of keys: 93 keys. (38 for each hand, plus 17 keys on top.)
- Optical Mechanical switches. (Water-resistant, dust-resistant.) [see Optical Key Switch]
- 100% Anti‑Ghosting and Full N‑Key Rollover.
- White LED Backlight, with 10 Brightness levels, and 8 Customizable Backlight profiles.
Is it better than the old? For the physical design, yes, absolutely. The optical key switch is fantastic, and the new arrangement, with more keys, and more thumb keys, is a major plus.
However, as of 2021-04-18, apparently only 10 keys or so near the center is programable. This is a major problem. Not sure if it will be fixed in the future.
