I have wanted to build something like this for a long time. I love my Mechanical Keyboard and having it be wired doesn’t bother me because it’s my desk keyboard. This doesn’t make it easy to hang back and type though and when I am using my TV it’s nice to have a wireless keyboard. The problem is none of the wireless options with a trackpad are any good. I have looked high and low for a good Mech board with a touchpad Everything I have tried has either been heavy as hell or just trash. I’m not saying this is a good board ( I have yet to try one) but it’s a step in the right direction. This looks like it has a lot of potential. Honestly, I love the idea of Analog sticks on a keyboard. As a gamer, the one thing that has always bothered me is the WSDA setup. I always get cramps in my fingers when playing for even moderate durations. Don’t get me started on those keypads some companies offer. I just want a good gaming board with even one analog stick on the left side but hey that’s my problem. Aside from all that, this is an inspired build. Completely wireless even when charging and an amazing look. If this doesn’t get picked up as the next big thing in keyboards I don’t know what will.

I’m talking about the guys no one knows about, the ones that are invisible. The top 1% of the top 1%, the guys that play God without permission.” -Elliot, Mr.Robot.
If you love building things, this is one hell of a project. This board has more bells and whistles than a 50’s Cadillac. I would happily pay for a Kit or a complete board. but what do you guys think?
Head over to Hackaday for the full build thread and Info on how to build your very own. I hope he sells some kits.
