Hello everyone,

This is ClickClack again. We are ready to kick off groupbuy phase of Metakey TENET!

TENET is a 70%/FRL-TKL designed by Metakey Studio. Like a palindrome that could be read from left to right and right to left. TENET features a Transformable Layout, which enables user to use keyboard in both right-handed Regular 70% and left-handed Southpaw Layout. With the Multi-function 256 x 32 pixel OLED Screen, you can get your computer resource usage, typing speed or put customize logo/text on your keyboard.
