Discord Server (https://discord.gg/JATVZuksXN)



Ultimate ISO is a gasket-mounted stacked acrylic 40% keyboard with 4 ISO enters for those people who need more than one enter on their keyboard for whatever reason.

Features:
Backstory:
A friend of mine made this layout as a joke in a discord server. We then played around with that idea and made up the final layout options. Because I had nothing to do (and wanted to procrastinate studying for my exams), I started making that meme into an actual keyboard for fun over the past 2 months or so. I totally didn't spend way too much of my time on this.

Case options:
Base keyboard:
Add-Ons:
Metal Weight Add-on:
There will be an option to purchase an additional weight (put in place of the acrylic backpiece) made out of brass.

They say that the more enters one has the better they are. This backs up that theory with strength.

You guys always kill me because it's like you come up with a funny idea for a keyboard meme product and then someone spends actual effort mocking it up or making a CAD model and then someone decides to actually make it and you spend real money on it because nobody had the sense to just say "this is actually stupid" somewhere along the way.

I'll take two.

as a 40% user I'm actually quite interested, but how tf am I supposed to pay for four ISO enters if they're not random keycaps from aliexpress that don't match the keyset I want?

I think the idea is the meme it up with the leftover ISO Enters that you wouldn't otherwise use (assuming you're an ANSI or smol enter user).

You know, if you got rid of all those unnecessary alphas you could fit some more ISO enters in there.

It's like an ISO enter with the 1u key to the left. Makes it compatible with ISO keyboards

This is an interesting idea, yet, I like the enter key a lot, even more than the BAE one, but I am not sure if it is worth its use, not to say four of them, in such a small footprint. It may be worth making a prototype of the design and to test it, get some feedback on its use. I suppose that a lot of chorded options will be required by this design.
