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

Let me add here Buran, a rather old project by Evelyn S. aka ScatteredDrifter, on occasion of Protieusz updating the PCB.

I wasn't aware of this project until featuring the Nova but it definitely belongs in kbd.news.

Buran, apparently named after the ill-fated spacecraft and meaning "blizzard" in Russian, is an angled orthogonal semi-split keyboard with support for two encoders.
