    Oh wow, keys that are aligned horizontally? That’s asking for Carpal Tunnel.

    If you look at the keyboard at http://www.hacoa.com then the keyboard layout is pretty conventional; I believe the image above is the uncut kit version, I guess easier to route if you layout the keys in a grid like fashion. You cut the keys out yourself then fix them to base plate, laid out in a conventional manner (though a mini keyboard, no numeric pad, cursors etc.)
