It also marks a new chapter in my journey in keyboard design.<br>I thought about making Ellipse a bit more… different while still keeping it sleek, modern and versatile.<br><br><span class="bbc_u">My goal with Ellipse was to design a board that:</span><br></p> <ul class="bbc_list"> <li>Kept in with that “minimal &amp; sleek” look which so many of us like and chase.</li> <li>Set itself apart from other 60% keyboard designs from a “top-down” view.</li> <li>Offer true customizability within a single keyboard for the end-user to experiment and build his own preferred setup.</li> </ul> <p><em>- Funderburker</em></p> <p><strong></strong><br></p> <p id="isPasted"><strong>Notable features:</strong><br data-mce-fragment="1"></p> <ul> <li>Lovely and unique elliptic curve to the front and back of the keyboard.</li> <li>Compatibility: designed with long-term support in mind.
