Ah if only the bezels on the sides were thinner!

Looks neat, but what's the reasoning behind doing the Lemo?

Supports a number of the newer PCBs that have breakouts for daughterboards. Iím assuming the daughterboard comes with the lemo and you just connect that to the pcb breakout

I'll be watching this close. I really like the curves on the bottom.

Do you have a plan for protos or anything or is this pre-proto type IC?

Awesome design! Love the thick bezels. It gives the keyboard that old-school style I so much adore. Will it come with a PCB? Any other colors besides black and white?

Definitely in.

Looks like a lot of attention was paid to the finer details and Iíve been on the hunt for a silver board.
If you have pictures of the RAL 9006 anode that would be perfect.

Yeah I'm not so sure the hype around keycult when concepts like this exist. It's like what I like for Norbauer but with incline and MX.

For me, personally.. the bezels is what makes this a piece and not just a keyboard :)

lemo.. bc the connection is HOT :p

Very intrigued, what's your plan for prototypes?

I think the case would look cooler if the bottom wasn't curved but rather had a linear slope up to the edge. This in my opinion would better complement the thick bezels and blocky top design.

After looking at it a bit more I also think the bezels are too thick. I'm also concerned about the price if the entire bottom part is supposed to be brass?

a bit thick for me to 100% buy in. but I like the design overall. why no middle screws? do you assume that it will flex in the middle? would be nice to see an internal weight on it somehow.
