Hydra is a unibody split 13-unit-wide 40% keyboard that brings a few unique changes to the form factor. Firstly, the gap between the alphas allows for hands to be more separated during typing, which many find to be an increase in comfort.
The thumb cluster is dropped down 0.25u to more naturally fit the thumb resting area, with 0.25u blockers added on both sides for a separated or exploded aesthetic. Two more 0.25u blockers are added to the bottom left and bottom right of the board.
The bottom right blocker is there to achieve the use of conventional arrow keys in the main cluster (something not available on a 13u board typically). The bottom left blocker was added to mimic the right side symmetrically and allow for 3 main modifier keys (ctrl, sys, alt).
