Armachat TOUCH

Not a classic keyboard, not a classic cyberdeck: Armachat TOUCH by bobricius.

Creators! Feel free to tip me off about your keyboard related projects to bring them to 100K readers.

The Armachat TOUCH "doomsday communicator" is just a bare PCB, not a real product and not open source either.

I still thought it may be worth a post since I find it inspiring: an ortho touch keyboard and a display recessed into the PCB (check out the video below).

Only bare PCB of prototype, more as collectable like usable. In to your collection or for developers. There are some bugs which I fix in next year batch (etc, fix keyboard backlight, change pinout and PCB trace antenna) – Bobricius.
