Title: Keyboard of the Month - February - Vote
Post by: katushkin on Mon, 09 March 2020, 11:51:43
Afternoon all and happy Daylight Savings time or whatever it is (we don't go forwards till the end of the month but there we go).

Here we are with February's Keyboard of the Month vote and have we got an ergo extravaganza for you!

We have first up, iso's MEK

And finally, Liliabug's ToucheLibre

Three great looking custom made ergo boards for you to cast your vote over! As always the poll will last for seven days, good luck!

Crikey... February is blowing my mind!

MEK's looks like it was ripped straight out of an episode of Ghost in the Shell
Shmozart's looks like Apple cyberpunk chic
And wow... LiliãBug's ToucheLibre looks like it belongs in a game parlor or something, sitting beside a custom chess set...

March-Dec have a whole heck of a lot to show for if they even want a chance at KotY 2020
Just deciding February is gonna be hard enough, but I think I know the determining factor that I will settle on. All three boards are incredibly unique, have intriguing layouts, and take ergonomics in different ways. It is true, that while I'm more impressed with some of the other designs overall ingenuity, only one of these boards has the appearance and overall feel, to me, of something that is completely finished. I don't mean finished as in "done building"... I mean that in terms of "fit and finish". With that taken into mind, I have a clear standout that will get my vote.

To the two who don't get my vote, don't feel bad! This was one of the toughest KotM votes I can even remember!

Awww geez, this would have to be the hardest month EVER.
I wonder sometimes that when I nominate a different board from those usually put up it is at a disadvantage, but wow  :eek:  three amazing ergo boards to make this a level playing field.
Cudos to the makers for sharing very unique, creative and personal creations with us.
I would like to apologise to the other two makers as each’board’ (more like Kinput Device <- see what I did there?) is, IMO, equally deserving to win.

Finally a month where all the bottom rows are full, I think?

Given rectangular opposition any one of these would have had my vote but they had to come all at once so only one can.
