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

I have a hard time to keep track of projects on Geekhack. This one was brought to my attention through JucheCatgirl's typing test on Youtube:

This absolute unit is the Boston, a "compact 120%" designed by Pylon at geekhack. […] It's essentially an Austin with an F13-F24 row added on top. These were available as B-stock/test kits for users willing to print their own cases, and all the PCB and case files are on github for those interested in building one today.
