I know designing and building your own keyboard is very rewarding. However, I can't imagine how rewarding seeing your design in a shop might be.

I went to see my own keyboard cocot46 in Yusha Kobo – Daihuku.

The cocot46 is a compact, 46-key monoblock split with column staggered layout, equipped with a mini trackball and rotary encoder.
