This keyboard kit has been heavily inspired by Jack's cats Finn and Gus.

The special 3D printed cat shaped case had to be printed in 3 sections on his biggest printer.

I made this with that [being ridiculously impractical] in mind, but after using it for a month now, it's actually a lot better than I expected. Sure it's large and that is a downside but other than that, it's a great keyboard and great layout. Plus built in wrist-rests! – Jack Pikatea.
