Pinned toot

Hi, I’m a French game designer/writer working mainly in the serious game/edutainment industry.

On my free time, I develop my own video games and tools, compose electronic music, make pixel/voxel art, build keyboards, grow hops and brew beer.

Computers ate my soul.

In , doing some early tests for a small isometric game that still needs a lot of work.

Apparently "keeblades" and "mechettes" are a thing.

What manually tracking my time has taught me so far:
- I can do it.
- Even if it’s not very precise, it’s a satisfying ritual.
- Reading previous entries is helpful to decide what I should do next.
- It took me 15 days to realize we’re not in 2009.

I'm not sure what to think about this strange accordion keyboard for mobile devices. This version works as a handheld dock. There's another one with a weird curved screen that mirrors your device.

I’ve just discovered that Apple scans your emails to look for artists names that can then be turned into links to iTunes, straight into the email app. Just when I started to think the iOS experience wasn’t as terrible as I expected it to be.

Success! is now able to pilot my old Electribe ESX-1. I still have to load decent samples and relearn how to use this beautiful machine but the softly distorted sound of the vacuum tubes is even warmer than what I remembered.

I'm quite tempted to dust off my old Electribe and see if I can control it with .

My new vertical mouse is quite the eldritch beast but it seems to get along quite well with my split keyboard. I wish it was branded with a better logo though.

@ice I have a CyKey, and it works really well, but the keyboards are like membrane buttons so it doesn't feel as good to type on. Still, it's ambidextrous, which is neat!

@ice The Bat one-handed keyboard looks a lot more ergonomic. They put the mode switches at the thumb. Sorta halfway thinking of getting one off of eBay 😆

It looks painful to use. Why add more buttons next to the first and the middle finger instead of the thumb, which is much easier to move in this position?

The mysterious Octima, the device that inspired the Penti chorded keyboard.

Does anyone know why DIY keyboards are all the rage but there's basically no DIY mouse community?

I’ve finally received the Canvas XDA keyset I ordered six months ago. I wasn’t sure how it would fit with my WhiteFox but I absolutely love it.

Currently making the mandatory random Linux distro install of the year, this time on a dedicated old gaming laptop with Pop!_OS. No dual boot. Aiming at 100% audio, coding and keyboard firmware tinkering. This time I can break anything, since it's not my main machine.

This looks like some kind of chorded keyboard, not sure how functional it is: tapwithus.com/ cc @neauoire @drisc

This place is so inspiring. I triangle you all. :tealheart:

I had fun with the Z operator. The more I use , the less inclined I feel to stick with any kind of structure or genre. I just get carried away by the flow.

The SafeType keyboard seems to come straight from a Cronenberg movie.
