[IC] Edinburgh41
« on: Mon, 25 October 2021, 10:47:46 »
Dear Community,

this is the interest check channel for the Edinburgh41, a 40% mechanical keyboard I designed in Edinburgh, Scotland. I have named the keyboard after this city in honour of the wonderful people who have directly and indirectly supported me on this journey. Please take a look at the “credits” section for details.
First things first, check out the pronunciation of this beautiful city:

What's better than a Reviung41? A stacked acrylic Reviung41 with a joystick, of course.

Excited to see this come to fruition, good luck with the IC/GB man!

Absolutely gorgeous. This being a thumbstick instead of a rotary encoder as I first thought is about to make me lose NNN.
Shhhhh...my wallet doesn't know I'm here.

This is awesome.
You can count me in for GB

Joy stick seems fantastic, definitely want to try various use cases for it like:
1) Games (of course)
2) Maybe as a mouse solution?
