Joe Scotto's builds and videos.
The initial inspiration for this build was the Alice layout, but a columnar-staggered, Kailh low-profile, 40% remix with some extra ergonomic tweaks inspired by the 6x3 Corne. A big reason was to avoid doing a split for my first project so I could get my head around wiring and firmware and prove to myself I can actually make a board that works – terryorchard.
