Home Key Tactile Bumps

It seems I do more typing than the good folks at Kinesis expected:

Kinesis keyboard - worn tactile bump
Kinesis keyboard – worn tactile bump

In round numbers, the keyboard is all of two years old and that little ridge is pretty much history.

The ultimate fix will likely involve a dab of epoxy, but a duct tape snippet should show me how much of a bump my fingers need to find the home keys without conscious thought:

Kinesis keyboard - tape bump
Kinesis keyboard – tape bump

Early returns suggest one layer isn’t quite prominent enough; some iteration will be in order.

And, yeah, I should yank the keycaps for some deep cleaning.
