There's no way a functional prototype held together with tape should win when a better looking and functioning v2 has already been confirmed - it's time will definitely come but not yet!

If it was a functional prototype and he was able to actually demonstrate it, I'd feel better about voting for it.  But as it stands, a barely functional Razer with the WASD cluster irregularly worn and stained with Cheeto dust is more useful.  And that is saying something.

Sure looks like it works, what makes you think it doesn't?  I'd take it over the Razer anyway, it looks better...

I came off a bit harsh - it's an amazing design and if the guy hadn't said he was making a v2 it would have my vote, just makes sense that the final version is the one that goes on record as KOTM :thumb:

well okay

i didn't want to post this because my phone camera + office lighting produces some terrible photos, but if it's only up against one other board then perhaps it has a chance  :))

it looks pretty good irl, you'll just have to take my word for it

Whatever, due to lack of nominations I will throw my keyboard in the hat but I need to take a few more photos of it first.

All I did was paint the plate red and tuned the stabs (pad mod, lube + clipping)

It's the V60 Mini

What the hell, lets get some red vs blue in here (topre vs mx too)

I actually had it powder coated, and I expressly told them that they shouldn't blast off the original coat until they matched the colour.  Evidently, they didn't heed my advice.

Yes, it's what I get for choosing the cheapest supplier, I think.  It still cost me $130, though.
