New enclosure made from a project box.









This is how my hand rests on the keyer.This enclosure is by far the most comfortable enclosure I have made yet.

This is the bottom of the device with the cover off.

The three thumb switches are visible (the white one is equivalent to a "home row key" and is textured).

This is where the index, middle, ring, and pinky fingers rest.

The coiled cable pictured here is a makeshift USB cable I put together so I could make the keyer more modular.

Thanks for the input James! I really appreciate it. Steve Mann's work is also one of the things that got me thinking about crafting my own septambic keyer, I even picked up his book on intelligent image processing from my local library ( really  amazing information in there.)

Well, that is a project waiting for a 3D printed solution if I've ever seen one. There is an existing design or two, but I'm not sure they are what you want:

You might just try a moldable thermoplastic like Instamorph. 

Or mold one to your hand like a cast, using whatever this is:

I think it's wonderflex.
