Looks awesome! Great work! How much space does the board require? Will it still be possible to use the internal keyboard in its regular position?

This is just a test board for us to beta test. Likely a final board will be smaller.

Lots of pins to solder
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.

Exxos, any chance you'd sell it as parts. Ever since I've got the microscope and started to examine existing boards I'd really like to avoid anything made with lead free solder. Just a thought.. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

This is just a prototype, it's not a production board. We are a long way off that yet. We will need to do another couple of revisions as well. We have not even finished finalising the firmware , or even tested various cards, this is pretty much only the start of the project.
