is it possible to have the track pad on the left-hand side?
I stumbled over this project and started to read into it. I really like the general concept and your ambition but if I'd assemble it the way depicted, this would be a pain for me to use. (and approx. 10% of the world population, including some of the students you aim to educate.)
Just from looking at the sketches it seems to me that it wouldn't take too much to have a flip-able version of the base top.
I'm a lefty also, but I have adjusted my workflow to compensate for this right-handed base-top
