CargoVan was a hand-wired prototype keyboard designed as a tribute to the DataLuxxx Space Saver
While the DataLuxxx that inspired its design was based on a standard 60% layout, CargoVan utilized a MiniVan layout on the bottom half. Two clusters of 12 switches are located in the top left and right corners and a 6-key cluster is located top middle. The entire board was hand-wired to a Teensy++ microcontroller board that was positioned underneath with the USB Mini port centered on the back of the case.
Cargovan supported a single layout that was based on a standard MiniVan layout with function, arrow, and numpad clusers placed above it.
CargoVan was a hand-wired keyboard and a PCB was never produced. It used a Teensy++ microcontroller board to connect to the host computer.
The original case used a 1.5mm thick stainless steel switch plate with wood edge pieces on the underside as a frame for the rest of the body. A clear acrylic back plate was used to show off the hand-wired switches. A large aluminum handle was installed on the back of the case and functioned as a foot to elevate the typing angle of the board.
