 Spaceman Spiff'​s Chording Keyboard Experiment (or SpiffChorder for  Spaceman Spiff'​s Chording Keyboard Experiment (or SpiffChorder for 
-short) is an experimental platform for creating a USB chording keyboard. A chording keyboard or [[wp>​Chorded keyboard]] is an input device where characters can be typed by pressing multiple keys at the same time. A popular design is the 7-key chorder, where one key is used for each of the index finger, middle finger, ring finger and pinky, and 3 keys for the thumb. This can be used with either the left or right hand (or a chorder can be used for each hand, effectively doubling the typing speed). The current incarnation of the SpiffChorder is a 7-key chorder, although because of the easily changeable chord-maps, fewer keys can be used as well. The hardware-design has been designed for chords consisting of up to 8 keys, plus 3 additional keys that can be used as modifiers (ctrl, alt, shift). This allows substantially different chording ideas to be implemented,​ such as the [[Twidlette]]. ​+short) is an experimental platform for creating a USB chording keyboard. ​Stable, reliable and up to the demands of daily use the SpiffChorder is an alternative to conventional keyboards that is simple enough to be built as a first time electronics project. ​ At the same time, the design allows for modification of the number of keys, the chord mapping and the physical layout providing an ideal platform for experimentaton without having to create a device from the ground up.
