A keyboard for the pros.
Five key questions, answered by our users
Split DesignWith a truly split layout, the ErgoDox EZ allows you to position each half where it makes sense to you. Typing at shoulder width allows you to keep your chest open and instantly leads to a more relaxed posture. No more hunching over the keyboard.
OrtholinearWhen you extend your finger, it doesn't go sideways, does it? So why are the keys on your keyboard not directly on top of each other? The answer is archaic design, which we fixed. The ErgoDox EZ has linear columns of keys, reducing finger travel and fatigue.
The ErgoDox EZ, in my opinion, is the most versatile keyboard on the market. It can do anything you need it to do, and if it’s not right by default, you have unlimited options to create the perfect solution for your individual needs. Read the full review

Tilt/Tent KitThe third dimension: Thanks to our custom tilt/tent kit, you can control the angle of the keyboard in relation to your desk. Angle both halves to create a "pyramid", create a negative incline, or any other angle that works for you.
Wing Wrist RestOur heavy, custom-molded Wing wrist rest was designed to complement the contour of the ErgoDox EZ. We made it separate from the keyboard to allow you to control the distance between the wrist rest and the keyboard.
Black or WhiteThis is the first thing people will notice about your keyboard, and we do think it matters. Both of our color options are created with the same high-grade materials, and the custom accessories match, of course.
Printed or Blank Our printed keycaps cover the alphanumeric characters of the keyboard, leaving the edges completely open to remapping. They are all the same profile so you can easily move them around for Colemak, Norman, or any other layout. Our blank keycaps are sculpted, DCS profiles. Learn more about our keycaps

And you can make it your own.
Open-SourceThe powerful firmware that runs on your ErgoDox EZ is called QMK and it's open-source, available on GitHub. While you can use the configurator to quickly put together a layout, having complete access to the firmware source code means you can dig as deep as you'd like.
Up to 32 LayersNeed easy access to your F-keys? Want a mechanical numpad? Need programmer-friendly symbols right on your home row? With multiple layers, all of this becomes trivial. It's like a Shift key on steroids.
Dedicated Hyper and Meh keysUnlock the power of system-wide shortcuts. Hyper is Ctrl+Shift+Alt+Cmd, while Meh is Ctrl+Shift+Alt. No sane application on your machine uses these, which means you get free system-wide shortcuts. Hyper + S will never conflict with anything on your system.
Space-cadet ShiftUse your Shift key for more. Press and hold it, and it acts as Shift. Tap it on its own, and it sends a parentheses — open parens on the left Shift, close parens on the right Shift. This is not enabled by default, but is trivial to enable using the configurator.
Mouse ControlNever take your hands off the keyboard. The ErgoDox EZ can emulate a mouse, allowing you to control your cursor, scrollwheel and mouse buttons quickly and effectively.
Dual-function KeysTap your Z key, and it sends the letter Z as expected. Press and hold it down... and it becomes Alt. That is the power of dual-function keys: When tapped, they send a character. When held, they act as a modifier. Alt, Ctrl and friends have never been easier to reach.
