Venn

65% leaf-spring keyboard






This is a 65% keyboard that combines the aesthetic of my first design, the Chiwi60 with elements from the 7V. I normally prefer 75% over 65% but I've noticed that my fiance pushes her 7V forward a bit with her Macbook to make space when she wants to use the latter so I thought that a 65% would suit her better.

5. FAQ



* What colour options will there be?
I have settled on Blue, Green, Burgundy, Black, and Silver.


* What happened to e-white?
The reason why silver was produced rather than white was that the manufacturer forgot to allow for some of the units to be coated and didn't allow for the extra tolerance required during the CNC process.
If there is still a demand for the Venn beyond the in-stock sale, we will consider running a Group Buy afterwards.


* Do you have a discord server?
I don't have a discord but Epsilonkeyboards has a channel dedicated to discussions on the Venn on his server which you can access here.
