This is a repost from Geekhack but I wanted to post this on Deskthority because I value this community's insight and expertise tremendously.
It's been a year and a half in the making and I'm about to launch my Kickstarter in 2 weeks. Below is a teaser pic of the Qwerkywriter, a typewriter inspired mechanical keyboard. I promise there will be more info in the coming weeks. Feel

I wanted to see if I could create something fun and beautiful. Sometimes you make things for yourself. But sometimes, it's also fun to see if maybe if others share your passion for creative objects.
I looked at a lot of ways to see if I could mass manufacture these. I chose Kickstarter because I've been through a few of them already with others and I really believe in what Kickstarter stands for. Are there some rotten apples in the barrel? Sure. But at its core, Kickstarter is about passionate and disciplined creative people doing projects that just can't be made any other way. Through transparency and really listening to the community, I think we can achieve something fun and beautiful!
