UPDATE MAY 14TH 2021

THE PROTOTYPE



After feedback from the IC, we made a few design changes for the next prototype (Which has been ordered!)

Multiple small details were changed in the second version, the biggest of which being the removal of the feet.

Some of you might be worried that the keyboard will tilt/wobble when typing.

This is NOT the case - for the keyboard to wobble you would have to press way harder than you ever would in a real-world scenario.

Other changes include multiple small changes - primarily larger cutouts to make the tolerances more forgiving.
