The great plan is to use our CNC machine to cut various keyboard frames and populate them with quality mechanical switches. If interested hilight us on IRC or use our public mailing list. We will be doing group orders of switches and materials to save on shipping costs.


Switch options:



  • ARM M3 or similar
  • Bluetooth low energy

Perks to include:

  • trackballs (can be reduced to ball, ball cup + electronics on an extended wire)
  • IBM/Lenovo PS/2 trackpoints (there still may be dead laptops in the base to source this)

Trackballs in stock:


  • CherryMX sourcing
  • Wood type/sourcing options
  • Design toolchain
