What is the feasibility of using a push/pull or toggle pushbutton for the rotary encoder so for example you can have spin volume and push mute?

The chip that we're using for the encoder doesn't support being a push button too. Though you could set one of the mechanical switches to toggle the mute

I'll be honest: I was starting to lose interest. Like how much do I really need this? Honestly, I definitely don't need it at all, BUT once I saw that video of the knob spinning, I was 100% back. So pumped for this. One thing though, I am very much not into the knob with the giant grooves in it. I much prefer the subtle ridge with the gap in it used in the renders. For whatever that may be worth.

Glad you like it! I'm really happy with how well it spins.

A lot of people seem to prefer the notch knob over the crinkle. At the moment we are still planning to make both of them since there seems to be enough interest for both.

Got a progress update on the new prototypes! They are looking much better than the last ones and they haven't even been finished yet.
We are also working closely with the manufacturer to get a higher quality finish from the sandblasting, they will be using a higher grit of glass beads which should give us a much smoother surface finish. We're expecting it to look more like the anodising on a Iphone 6.

Can confirm, the knob is super hefty. The new protos should be getting to us soon too!
