OK, I'm done with these silly names (Sweep vs Sweeeeep vs Swweeep). I have better things to do than counting letters in titles (I have to count letters for logical layout optimization. ;))

Joe Scotto released a new handwired project: the ScottoLoooooooooong is an open-sourced 10u version of his previous ScottoLong with a 7u spacebar.

It uses Akko Lavender Purples and sounds really good, probably my best-sounding board yet. The build video is pretty neat too, I tried doing a cinematic build that I think a lot of people will enjoy – Joe.

All the keycaps are 3D printed and the case used the fuzzy skin setting in Cura to add more texture.

I don't know about you but I love this video:
