These are questions I have found that are similar to mine:

  1. http://electronics.stackexchange.com/questions/63629/arduino-as-full-fledged-keyboard-controllerArduino as full fledged keyboard controller? This is somewhat similar but it sounds like op is trying to connect an existing keyboard
  2. http://electronics.stackexchange.com/questions/13372/how-to-build-a-custom-laptop-computer-with-original-chassis-keyboard-etcHow to build a custom laptop computer with original chassis, keyboard, etc? OP here is wanting to make an entire laptop. I just want a small keyboard.
  3. http://electronics.stackexchange.com/questions/50845/usb-keyboard-with-many-simultaneous-key-pressesusb keyboard with many simultaneous key presses This one seems most similar but I will probably need more simultaneous presses and they seems further along.

I don't have much info on this so their are lots of different things that need to be solved in order to make this (if keyboard will be ps2,usb,blutooth or all, firmware, case, inner electronics) Right now I'm basically interested in the inner electronics/wiring though any advice is helpful.

Info I do have on my proj

  1. I will use mx brown switches
  2. http://ergodox.org/Default.aspx I'm kind of using this as a guide. I tried to open their pcb files, but couldn't. They use a teeensy usb which would be much smaller than my arduino uno. To save space I was thinking of putting the arduino under the pcb and separating them with strong metal would this work.

Basically, I need advice on how to open others and design my own pcb and if my setup is possible.

Update

So my kb uses layer design press one key for access to a function on another. M = modifier shift alt etc L = layer key These determine what functions are available R= regular key
