Obviously it is inspired by early kustoms. But I wanted to create an “alternate timeline” where customs went into a different direction.
I used the flat surfaces the classic design provided to fill it with engravings and graphics. I wanted to maximize the amount of style I can cram into it, and do it in strange new ways nobody else has done before.

Fake seam. Originally I was going to use this bottom design with Kebnekaise, but I had trouble making a weight extend so close to the edges without causing issues. I eventually solved it, but it was so expensive that I got the idea of faking it, by using “panel lines”. Looks great and I’ve been using it a lot since.

The fossil was surprisingly tricky to get right. I wanted it to have a printed like quality to it, as if it's an image, but still have some surface variation to make it seem like a real fossil. I can't wait for people to see this weight in like 3 years and be very confused what the hell it even is.

So I was desperate to make a keyboard where external screws are hidden, but all the common methods just had enough of downsides to really bother me.
I wanted to use M3 screws, no dinky little M2 screws.
I wanted it to not interfere with switches.
Needs to not require extra parts, or glue or magnets or whatever.
It took a long while, but I figured out a way to do all of that, with no downsides.
The Baionbolt was born. Named after the true genius that has blessed our hobby by gracing us with such incredible technology of slightly tilting the screw. Technically I first used it in Synovia, but Gehirn has more eyes on it.
Jokes aside, this is something that I’m quite proud of.
After I posted cross sections on how to do it in my discord, it has seen adoption on several other keyboard projects.
