[GB] Eon MMXXIII WKL Wedge 60%
« on: Sat, 30 September 2023, 17:15:00 »

Intro

More

Hello again Geekhack, im Que.

(or Que7797 on Discord)

I've been fortunate enough to have owned keyboards from many designers over the years. This has led me to develop very selective personal preferences.
No one was offering the specific combination of features that I wanted, so I decided to make my own. My goal is to blend the classic kustom aesthetic I love with the modern design features I need.

In addition to keyboards, I also love making keycaps. Combining those two passions led me to create Quest Keyboards!

You can check out some of my work at instagram.com/quest.keyboards
or questkeyboards.com

Now I'd like to share a project that is finally nearing completion.








Eon is a WKL Wedge 60%

Background Info

The result of over a year of work, numerous complete re-designs, and an entire GB dedicated to prototyping/gearing up for this public Geekhack run.
Every millimeter has been obsessively scrutinized and finely tuned to blend classic shapes and contemporary features together in a harmonious balance that I believe is worthy of any collection.
Many thanks to Pwner, Hiney, and Yuktsi for their input, guidance, and friendship over the years.

Also, Lulzthax will be streaming a build in the next week or two for a more indepth look at the board!

Mod Edit:
PSA to prospective buyers:
Group Buys are inherently risky endeavors. There is an element of risk involved with collecting payment before the item has been produced and resulting uncertainty during manufacturing / subsequent operations. We urge all GB organizers to consider (and document) these risks, and want to make it clear to all who consider purchasing that these risks are present.

If you are unfamiliar with the Group Buy model, please read this primer - Group Buy FAQ / Buying Guidelines

This PSA is new and will become standard on all Group Buys moving forward. It is not posted on this GB in isolation and is not singling this organizer out in particular as someone to be wary of.
