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

Joe Scotto (u/Joe_Scotto) published the files of his ScottoCMD, an extended 30%(?) ortho board. It's a 40-key design but calling it a 40% would be probably deceptive because of the arrangement of the keys.

Today I released my fifth handwired keyboard, the ScottoCMD – Joe_Scotto.

This keyboard features a 3x10 ortho layout with a non-standard bottom row, 6 “function” keys, and a 128x64 OLED with Bongo Cat and layer indicator images.

You can find the files and some documentation over at GitHub:
