Right now i will start with how OTD started. The OTD was created in 2008 named, after a year of testing the website was renamed to First board for groupbuy (356L) was selled through KBDmania, but during it Eungsam had disagreements with KBDmania administraiton, so he decided to make new community. OTD covered not only keyboards, also bicycles, mechanical pens, photography, gaming and other lifestyle things. The main members of OTD creating team were: Eungsam, Sir, Jeany, Aqua,DSPman, Sad Nova and Korellas.

OTD 356MF (A.K.A 356L S/N 001, Eungsam Tenkeyless) - First prototype of 356L, MF means Metal Frame, The board is fully in raw aluminium and haves brushed finish. The board is predecessor of 356AMF. Haves strange mounting system and FR4(?) green PCB. I See white silkscreen of switch footprints, strange mounting points on pcb, strange stabilizer cutouts, also screwholes (?) on sides of plate. Made in 2007.03.04. Standart F12 Layout. Came before DK Saver,Built with Cherry G80-3491 Blacks and G80-3491 keycaps. The point to make it, was that Eungsam wanted to make Cherry version of Realforce TKL keyboard. Was meant to be first TKL MX keyboard with variable weight springs.

Material: German aluminium
Plate Material: Stainless Steel (?) Aluminium (?)
PCB: FR4 (?) with Cherry G80-3491 Controller
Connectivity: USB, PS/2
Colors: RAW
Plates: SS (?)
