zslzne, just wanted to let you know, I was on the fence regarding the Rocketeer (especially after having just shelled out for the ALT canvas, and due to layout limitations), but my wife saw it and was immediately sold. Very nice design!

Good idea to get her stories and record her voice. Perhaps your passion for input devices will come in handy for finding new options for her to communicate after the surgery. Take care, Mu.

This project was intended to scratch an itch, learn something new and a fun challenge, so I never wanted to earn anything back from it. Thank you, though. :) I haven't ordered a large enough quantity to build a keyboard yet, primarily because I'm not yet sure how many I'll need. If there's sufficien...

The kit includes all the stems for a full TKL keyboard but unfortunately it seems that they are not including the stabilizer housings, so a little of DIY work would be needed. What DIY work would be required to outfit a Realforce? They are indeed, and we also have put up a barebones and a refurb un...

Hey that looks great! I'm happy they worked out for you. I see you used surface mount resistors and through-hole diodes. Any particular reason for the mix? How did the LEDs work out? In any case.. very nice! :)

Hi mohitgarg,

I just came across your split 65% keyboard. Awesome project!

There's an SVG OSH logo here that might be helpful. I had a few PCBs made to test it and it came out pretty nice (some pics here).

And you should take my cream&biege option off since that render is a render of Ail's colorway (i.e., give those votes to Rasberries & Cream instead and take cream & biege away). I would think many of those votes come from the same people. It's also a bit surprising that another picture of the same ...

Maybe you could include holes for pins so that they can be aligned with .1" holes. Then they could be used with perf boards. (and also proto boards?) Yes, it can be done. The pins on the bottom half are already 0.1" spaced. The SR, SC and LC pins on the top will have to be rearranged slightly. A co...
