“After finding an old mechanical keyboard laying around in my storage, I decided I wanted one, but more compact and with a Portuguese layout. After browsing for one to fit my own very special requirements, I couldn’t find it.
Because I wanted something I couldn’t buy, I decided to make my own mechanical tenkeyless keyboard from scratch. First I recycled two old keyboards: one Monterey K108, from where I got the ALPS switches and a rubber dome NGS because the keys were compatible with the ALPS switches and it had the Portuguese layout.
Because I’ve made it, I added the functionality I wanted to the electronics: USB HID, Bluetooth HID, internal keylogger, internal USB hub, multiple clipboards, internal USB storage (activated through a secret keyboard combination), and of course: LEDs for the ‘bling bling’ effect.”
