TDPHSK keyboard

The open-source TDPHSK by ianliu88 is 3D printed and hotswappable.

The TDPHSK is a 70 key keyboard in a 14x5 grid. It has a split layout with a slight angle to make it more comfortable to use. To make the switches hot swappable there are Kailh sockets put in the 3D printed mid layer of the keyboard.
