The Good, the Bad, the Ugly and the Awesome

Posted by Dirk (Creator)

The Good

We passed 1000 shipped TOHKBDs! Wooohoooooo!

Working hard on the homestretch, the alarm clock went at 5:30 this morning and the first PCBs are being checked and soldered.

Kimmo is also making good improvements on the sw and lauching one update after another to QA. If your favourite feature is not yet implemented, it is on its way. For some features though we have to wait for the next SFOS update (no, we do not know when this update will come!), but for details about what we are working on you can totally ask on IRC.

The Bad

Given the amount of hardwork and manual quality control, chances were some faulty TOHKBDs slipped through. If something is not okay with yours (hardware issues), totally email me at and we'll figure out how to get it fixed. There are already some that arrived here for repair, I will fix these as soon as possible after I get the other kickstarter keyboards shipped.

The Ugly

There were some issues with the Azerty keypads, so these are on hold. If you already got your Azerty TOHKBD and want to get it changed, let me know. There are currently engraving the last batch of keypads (that also include all of the Stealth keypads).
