I am typing this article on a lynn Whale with tuned ergo clear under its hood, adorned with a set of OG dyesub. Looking back a year ago, I used to judge how people would get crazy over a keyboard, or even worse, over a single piece of plastic keycap. Today, I am proud that I am part of this community, part of this family. I've made friends, whom I think I know them better than most of my real life friends. I've met some really cool people in the Tokyo meetup last year. And now, I finally have something to share with my beloved community.Exent
Previously known as M67-A. It started off as a small project between Rama and I back in July 2016. Then I got yuktsi on-board to share his experience on aluminium customs and quadcube as our PCB guy. Later, sheraton from Originative Co. recently joined the team and strengthen our core. I also had a lot of help from close friends such as bunnylake, jokrik and ntw, offering their advise, feedbacks, critics, and most important of all, their unrelenting support.
The influence of this keyboard came upon a vintage apple keyboard. Rama was able to transform and reinvent the product into something so unique yet modern.The changes we made will allow for many modifications such as a customizable layout to involve everyone in the community.
Exent was envisioned to be a premium custom keyboard, offered at a price that is affordable for all. This is made possible from the dedication of each of the team members, pulling out all stops to transform Exent from an idea to reality.
This will be the most exciting keyboard of 2017, which grew from a 2-person project, to a collaborative effort of a group of keyboard hobbyists. At the time of writing, the CNC machine in the factory are working hard on the first Exent prototype. Excited as a kid on Christmas day, I am proud to share with you, Exent.DesignLayoutsFinish
