Thanks Drew for writing in about this great project from Dan Watson!
You have probably heard of Cherry MX keys in relation to gaming keyboards. They are very nice keys with excellent tactile feel. They are also extremely durable and rated for 50 million keystrokes. Products that use them are often top-tier and pricey, but come with cool features like multi-colored backlighting and re-programmable keys. Many people customize their keyboards by changing the key caps to have custom labels and colors. But why stop there? Let’s design our own Cherry MX keypad from scratch!
Drew also posted about it on Oshpark.
