On the Massively Parallel Procrastination website, Jesse Vincent shows off a series of prototype ergonomic keyboards that he has designed. Very interesting to see the development of the idea.

The Mark 4 was the first thing that started to feel right. It was also my first foray into TRON-style thumb keys. I loved them. And hated them. I got the angles and positioning wrong. And my brilliant idea of having two rows per-thumb was a total bust. They just made it harder to hit either row. But it looked cool. Man did it look cool.
