A mechanical gaming-centric keyboard that doesn’t occupy a lot of desk real estate. expand full story

The iconic design started a revolution of portable personal computers that spawned generations of new products. One-off electronics designer Love Hultén has set out to honor this old-school computer with his own take. Just by the looks of its wooden enclosure, he nailed it. But that keyboard though…
