Our Qwerkywriter manufacturing is in full swing and I wanted to update you with the latest progress. The components in these pictures are small batch samples from our early manufacturing runs.
Right now, we are making the first round of components and refining the tooling to ensure the highest quality possible. We've had unanticipated difficulties due to curvatures of the Qwerkywriter's outer metal frame. We did what we could to minimize curvatures but cutting too much would have seriously compromised the aesthetic look of the Qwerkywriter. We did take a hit on our schedule by a week or so due to these challenges but we are doing everything we can to get back on schedule.
The Return Bar, however, has turned out amazing! It's a solid metal piece chromed to match our keycaps. It's got copper tubing on the bottom for durability.
We re-positioned the power switch to the side for better ergonomic functionality and upgraded the switch type to better match the overall retro aesthetic. You can also tell from this angle that we've increased the thickness of the metal case to improve rigidity and overall sturdiness.
We finally have our new space bar along with a more ergonomic concave keycap surface. We've added dimples for touch-typing as well.
