Very voted.

Oh, was I first again?
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Wow, tough competition this month!

I really love handmade keyboards, and this month has a great selection of them. Handwiring a 60% and rolling your own firmware? Check. Making custom relegendable keycaps which KICK ASS? Check. Making a custom case for a unique PCB? Check. These three all deserve to win, for sure. It was a very difficult decision, but in the end, I went with my gut instinct.

Congratulations HPE1000 on winning with his hand wired 60% board! Shame we didn't receive much interest this month, but he is our worth winner nonetheless!

Congrats HPE! :)

GH has been very quiet this month anyway, which wouldn't have helped the KotM cause.

Well that's a surprise, was expecting the result to be inverted as it was when I last checked - thought people like LEDs and shininess!

The people have spoken - congrats HPE :)

I missed this vote. I pretty much worked the end of June and the first half of July away.  :confused:

I love that first one, and I like the second one too. Very creative use of relegendable key caps. I love the SPAAAAACE! key!  ;D
