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

It’s been a quarter since KBDcraft announced the Adam kit, and the design has been updated with new add-ons.

My original post on this LEGO-compatible kit is still popular, just like the product itself:

The video and the audience’s reaction have proven people love the idea – BoyU.

And the idea was a 60% custom mechanical keyboard with a brick-built case, gasket mount, QMK and unlimited upgrade potential.

With High-quality parts, Adam embodies a revolutionary minecraft-style retro aesthetic into any setup – KBDcraft.

I would highlight the affordability as well. The barebone kit goes for $60 (the full kit is $100), and BoyU offered you a 5% discount (don't forget the KBDNEWS discount code at checkout).

Behind the first keyboard design, a new model has been developed for nearly a year now. According to the designer, it is not easy to create new things, even the smallest one. Verifying the concept and technical feasibility takes time, so it's unlikely it will be finished in the first quarter.

However, this doesn't mean that KBDcraft has been doing nothing during the time, they've listened to a lot of feedback, addressed some issues with the Adam kit and developed some upgrade parts for it.

News
