Riskeyboard70 PCB

Riskeyboard70 by riskable: - Fairly uncommon features like 3D printed 'parametric' Hall effect switches, magnetically stabilized stabilizers, LED output (!) - just to name a few. This showcase of ideas is from another planet.

Creators! Feel free to tip me off about your keyboard related projects to bring them to 120K readers.

In this video riskable introduces his latest PCB project with some really interesting features (e.g. USB hub, LED output, extra power in etc.).

The keyboard features 3D printed Hall effect switches, which are springless, inherently hotswappable and 'parametric': I see how the weight can be customized by swapping the magnets, but parametric key travel means printing another stab I guess.

Also, magnetically stabilized stabilizers, anyone?
