is not just about making another DIY-keyboard, but it's all about creating a smart-connected device. A device which 'talks' to your surrounding, able to make its own decision and aim primarily to assist you in interacting with digital world by introducing some sort-of an automation and flexibility. Of course, while retaining its functionality as your casual keyboard in most cases.
is not just about helping or assisting, but shaping the way you interact with the digital domain in a long term. Self-deactivation after hours in front of computer or automatically kill your browser in case you've been in social media for too long are just an example of how it can help shaping the better you. Not to mention about several other neat feature such as securely embedding your passwords within the keyboard itself.
is not just about another keyboard that does Macro, but instead, it's all about a keyboard that generates its own macro depending on your surrounding and just the way you want it.
is not just about a bunch of switches where it does the exact same thing every single time, but it's all about dynamic community driven features.
is not just about a device that waits for your command, but it's all about having a two-way typing companion.
And lastly, it is not just about a keyboard.
"What I'm about to tell you is top secret. A conspiracy bigger than all of us. There's a powerful group of people out there that are secretly running the world. I'm talking about the guys no one knows about, the ones that are invisible. The top 1% of the top 1%, the guys that play God without permission." -Elliot, Mr.Robot.
