Hello, my name is Floof. I'm just here to post the idea of the layout God intended. ISO USERS REJOICE! This is the EUROPEAN ISOLATION!
This is just the beginning, I want to know if this should even be a thing at all, nothing more than simple discussion. Any feedback would be fantastic, thank you!

Update (~Early October Probably):

Was - John 11:35 -> EU ISOlation
Just a name change is all, just makes more sense considering what is actually on the board lmao

Update (12/26/19):

Hi everybody! I've got some news for ya, I'm about halfway done with the PCB design for this and I've also got some news on layouts n stuff. No renders or anything else pretty (yet) but when I get done with the PCB wiring I can see that being the next logical step and then we'll go from there.

Current Layout Options (Of course adding in the EU macro pad otherwise what's the point, right?):

MIT (2u Spacebar) {Listed Below}
GRID (all 1u)
and now entering the ring is the new image below unto which I'm calling...
BAGUETTE (4 - 1.25u, 7u Spacebar)

I thought about adding 2x2u but decided that maybe for a first run I should probably avoid making the pcb more swiss cheese than it already is. That should wrap up this little update here, and I hope you have had a wonderful holiday and have a good new year!

Update (1/30/20)

Hello again! No, I'm not dead, I've just been working on the PCB on and off and it's been quite a good time. I have finished the PCB and have DM'd the people who are going to be getting prototype pcbs which means this baby is in motion for the most part. I still don't 100% know if I want to go with a super premium/low number run or a super cheap/virtually unlimited and on a vendor yet but hopefully I'll have made up my mind when protos get here.

NOW onto the good stuff. The layout supports all 3 layouts as promised!... technically. You will have support for 2u space bar but it wont have stabilizers. Other than that everything is routed and I've had multiple people approve of the traces and such so now she's ready to rock and boy am I excited! I'll be ordering the protos tomorrow and I'll report back to you once I have them in my hands.

Happy Chinese New Year!
- Floof

Still can't get if this is a meme or will be real physical meme layout but... If you add another row, you can put this into a 60% case.

Why not?

2x2u space would be a nice option

>tfw you don't actually have 4 keycap sets to fit this keyboard
Why be so elitist and non-inclusive you guys?

A macro pad with the 4 iso keycaps would be nice.

I don't like not-split ortho. Should probably put ISO keys left, right, and centre for ergonomics.

I'm into this.

Honestly though, now I really want a 2x2 ISO Enter layout macropad.

This is one of the most utterly blasphemous abominations I've ever laid eyes upon.

tl;dr: I love it. GB when?

Some shine through iso caps with four different colored LEDs so I can play Simon would be fresh.
