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

Fully custom, designed from scratch, 3D printed and handwired using a Pro Micro.

I haven't seen something like this before on here, so I decided to give it a go. Is it pretty or even practical? Not really, but I've found I really enjoy the design process, and here we are – Mr_Cupcake33.
