I nominate the WASD V2 87 Barebones if it is eligible (I am not sure when it was introduced). For providing a quality Cherry mx TKL with a "naked" option (no keycaps) for those who would be swapping out the stock keycaps anyway. It is also one of the few Cherry mx keyboards with Costar-type wire stabilizers. I have posted a review of the keyboard:

That's their oldest news post since they seemed to have failed to import those from their earlier site. The V2 seemed to be well underway by December last year. I seem to recall that it goes back some way. Unless that's a different meaning of V2. The V2 isn't on the wiki nor is it in their own news blog … Typical.

The V2 isn't eligible, based on the Internet Archive:

Okay, thanks. It seems that I always discover products rather late. Like my 1984 IBM XT keyboard....

They have made a GB in China but the factory that has produced those doesn't exist anymore so they have to find another one
If it hasn't been released yet I'm gonna have to disqualify it.
It has been produced only for that chinese GB (this is what i have read)

I nominate GON NerD60, the build quality is premium, it features an easy to use configuration GUI just plug and play, no complicated key combos and weird interfaces, and since revision v2 the NerD60 has Wireless support. Not to mention the fact that GON is the only Korean keyboard designer that works directly with the western keyboard community.
I think faceU has no place here because is an older design, it should be the faceW.

Typo2 keyboard case for iPhone, appears to have launched 2014-07-31 for preorders, and appears to be shipping.

If this isn't the appropriate category, please consider this a nomination for it in the most appropriate category.

I assume that we can only nominate products who were released in 2014?

As I understood it you could have nominated products that were hot in 2014, not only released/produced in 2014, but unfortunately nomination time is over now.
