@mkb It's just a classic station in acrylic for anyone who wants to mod their switches.
Something like this (but with space for all parts of the switch): https://m.imgur.com/t0oEn01?r
I'm hoping to be able to offer the new factory lubed switches from NovelKeys, so you won't have to mod them if you don't want to.
Although it being an early adopter model I have to say that it is already really matured! Everything worked out of the box; the soldering joints of the components are all perfect and the hotswap doesn't feel flimsy at all!
It is a perfect board for newcomers and tinkerers who don't like the awkward and time consuming process of (de-)soldering their switches!
It took a while due to some very unfortunate external factors (not related to this), but the circuit boards finally arrived here today.
They look good and I'm very excited! I will ship them out to the new owners this week.
I'm also working on a keyboard case and some other things as well. Stay tuned!
@davidak I had a 'Let's split' keyboard for a couple of years.
I know some likes ortho and that's great for them! But for me, as a 10 finger typist, I find it harder to reach the alphanumeric letters that's the furthest away. And for ortho to begin to make sense it needs to be a split layout, so you can keep them at a straight angle to your fingers.
In the end it's personal preferences thought. This is just my personal opinion.
@davidak Change is not always progress. Ortholinear sounds good in theory, but considering how you type it's not that natural or efficient for you.
Why it's needed? People need input devices to type on. And I have never claimed that my circuit board is unique.
@Drakor I'm glad you're taking interest in it. We'll figure it out! Hopefully shipping won't be too expensive. :)
We're slowly making progress towards our first product. It's a standard 65% PCB with hotswap sockets. It's powered by the open source software QMK and it features a standard ISO-layout to fit as much people as possible.
Our goal is to make custom keyboards easy and available for everyone.
Custom keyboards made simple!
Our mechanical keyboards are powered by the QMK firmware, an open source and fully hackable firmware that put you as the user in complete control over your keyboard.
