New Typey Type Lessons

There are two great new lessons up on Typey Type: Orthography Rules and Stenotypos! Great stuff.

I'm also waiting on a prototype of the Eco (one of the new small batch steno hardware options coming out soon) to test, and our devs have been working on getting a new release of Plover out, after a bit of a hiatus. We're looking for new devs to come join the project, so if you're interested, please come on the Discord and get together with the other volunteers! It's an exciting time in the world of open source steno.

Uni Trailer

Pre-orders for the Uni are live, and Peter made this slick trailer for it!

Follow up to last week's post on the Uni: The creator now has a website,! Currently he's selling pre-orders for the Uni's circuitboard and 3D printed flat steno keycaps, but I expect there'll be more there soon.

Here's a video of Peter demonstrating the caps on a staggered layout qwerty board:

So many exciting things happening in the small manufacturer steno keyboard space! I can't wait to see them all as they continue to roll out.

The Uni, An Affordable Unibody Split Machine

render of the uni circuit board

Peter says on r/Plover:

Hello stenographers, I am currently in the process of making and prototyping a cheaper unibody split ortholinear keyboard for stenography.

I have the project up on Github for anyone curious. I plan on selling a fully assembled version for under a hundred dollars and just the pcb for even less. The pcbs will come with diodes presoldered so all you need are switches and a pro micro.

I'm still waiting for my protoypes to arrive in the mail along with the pro micro and switches.
I will be posting more updates.

I always love it when creators open source their hardware for the DIY set and also manufacture them for people who want an all-in-one option. Best of both worlds, in my opinion! This looks great, and I can't wait to see more.
