Hello everyone! Jack from Pikatea here. About 7 Months ago I designed a keyboard with this funky layout. I personally really like it and think others might feel the same. While the project is mostly complete, this IC check will help refine the final decisions needed to launch this as a group buy.
I quickly realized that the layout might not be for everyone so I made some design decisions to allow for multiple layouts at a very reasonable price.
The PCB is a through-hole PCB. You might be wondering why such a desicion for a “premium” board. I know the funky layout might not be for everyone so I wanted to include both the funky and normal layout as a minimum for each order. If we did an assembled PCB for both the Funky and Normal layout, it would raise the price quite a lot. A higher price would not work well for a layout that is not traditional. This design decision opened up the keyboard to be very flexible. With this board, it would be trivial to cut out your own plate and handwire a unique layout if that was your thing. Because of this design decision I also plan to included an Alice 40 and Ortherlinear slant+knob layout as an addon.
Inspiration and Design Language
The design language of the board is obviously very simple. This helps with cost and ease of manufacturing. The full bottom weight helps to bring heft and break up the simplicity. You’ll notice the weight provides a slight angle change too.

JST connectors connect the matrix board and the MCU board together.
