Keyboardio needs your help
« on: Thu, 17 April 2014, 13:58:58 »
Hey folks,

I've previously posted some of my 3D printed and laser-cut prototype keyboards (http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=52639.0) & have mentioned that we're hard at work designing a mechanical ergonomic keyboard that we intend to ship commercially. We've brought on a mechanical engineer to help us build something much nicer than my prototype enclosures. The current plan is to go to crowdfunding this summer.

If you have strong opinions about mechanical, keyboards, ergonomic keyboards or programmable keyboards, we'd really appreciate it if you'd fill out our survey: http://bit.ly/1lcA0dU. As an added bonus, if you fill out the survey, you'll be entered into a drawing to win one of our first 10 production keyboards.

60% keyboards, 100% of the time.
