Born as a meme, this keyboard is now all grown up into a fully custom premium keyboard. Features include hotswap sockets, a 65% + left macro layout, two-part aluminum top mount case, brass plate, and diffuser for RGB underglow.
Thanks. I know that there are those out there that like ISO, I’d definitely be open to making a custom plate and PCB at some point. I’m really an ortho user myself, considering making an ortho version too.
Yes, the diagram shows the parts. The prototype has bad machining which left a line around the middle of the top piece which is probably what you’re seeing. The angle is 3 degrees. There will be an option for a flat bottom as well.
The current design is not possible without the diffuser, but there will be brass or aluminum accents available if you want those instead of the acrylic. As far as making it lower profile, I would have to redesign the base to work without the diffuser layer, but that might be an option.
Being part of the conception behind the project has been awesome! I’ve never seen something that started as a meme grow into a full blown project that people love. I can’t wait to get my hands on mine! I’ll have mine built just in time to take it to the Seattle Meetup! Some of us that were part of the Prototype team will have ours on display at the meetup! @woodkeys What keyboard is that?
