Hotswap PCB for Block-67 — Felix Jen
Released on December 02, 2021
ENG Stdio is back with a new project – the Block-67 - a 65% gasket mount keyboard, with a case CNC milled out of a solid block of aluminum, priced at 144 USD. A 65% gasket mount keyboard with a price comparable to your average 60% tray mount has been possible for years now, but it was never realized. The Block-67 is here to change that. We plan to maximize functionality and minimize price while not compromising on looks. The blocky design with uniform bezels creates a sleek aesthetic, while also making it recognizable among other 65% keyboards.
The PCB supports both QMK and VIA by default.
