2022 CYBERDECK CONTEST: KEEZYBOOST40 IS A CYBERDECK MASQUERADING AS A KEYBOARD

There’s something to be said for über-powerful cyberdecks, but there’s also a certain appeal to less powerful decks squeezed into a tiny form factor. [Christian Lo] has designed a cyberdeck that looks like a simple ortholinear keyboard but is running a more flexible environment. There are games and animations you can play on QMK, but [Lo] felt that …
