This keyboard project is quite nice:
I liked the part about him needing to borrow a USB device ID. I actually bought a Gear Head as my first mechanical keyboard, it was pretty good for the price.

That is some very rigorous data collection and analysis. I'm glad an agency with "Highway", "Traffic", and "Safety" in its name is so willing to work with Tesla on their manslaughter-based product testing.
It isn't just software making things sluggish of course:
I wouldn't have thought 30+ ms of latency would be common, at least not with keyboards meant for hackers and gamers. That may not seem too bad by itself but you have to remember that there's also going to be display lag added on at the other end.
This stuff matters. It's the difference between your computer feeling snappy and responsive vs. janky and broken:
Processors and internet connections have improved tremendously but the software and websites piled on top of that make it seem like we're just flooring it in a mud field.
I know some people bounce off Blender because of the UI but let me tell you it is very convenient to just flippantly decide one day that I'm going to switch to Linux and then be up and running again.
I don't have to dig up a user account and password, jump through licensing hoops, or *shudder* buy another copy for each OS.
Nice RISC-V desktop:
@technomancy I like your little computers! I just made my own custom deck, it isn't as polished as your stuff but I thought you might be amused:
Here's my new portable computer. The case was finally printed successfully so I was able to make sure all the electronics actually fit. The cables need a lot of wrangling so I might look for some shorter ones. The list of components is on my blog:
This was a fun custom deck to make. I'm happy to have a sturdy little computer with a mechanical keyboard that I can take with me.
