I am currently working on creating a custom mechanical keyboard. The design is near completion, and I am also prepping the arrangement of manufacturing.
This pictured version is the refined current design.

I have been interested in creating my own custom keyboard design. This was the initial concept, which was scoped to be a much more complicated board.
The design takes inspiration from 80's analog synthesizers and their flip-up control panels, rack mount audio equipment, the sharp profiles of Italian dress shoes, as well as rear-diffusers from sports cars (the fins on the back), and the clean design cues from Apple's MacBooks.
