TL;DR:  Come meet the Keyboardio Model 01, and hang out with its creators too.

When? TODAY ~ SATURDAY ~ June 27th ~  from 4:30 PM to 6:00 PM

Where? In the Lecture Hall at Dallas Makerspace (1825 Monetary Ln #104 Carrollton, TX 75006)

What? Keyboardio is a tiny company making the Model 01: an Arduino-powered keyboard with open firmware and open hardware.  

Host: Kaia Dekker and Jesse Vincent 

The venue: Dallas Makerspace is a non-profit, shared community workshop and laboratory full of artists, engineers, makers, and thinkers.  Our members hold unique educational events and collaborate on cool projects! 


From Keyboardio...
As we've been building what's become the Model 01, we've talked to hundreds of you online, at conferences, and at festivals. It's been amazing to watch folks suddenly "get it" as they put their hands on a Model 01 in person for the first time.

It's designed to be comfortable/ergonomic and gorgeous. It started out as a hobby and has now grown to the point of a commercial Kickstarter. You can learn more at and

(There's also a rough draft of a commercial that Autodesk shot about us online at

We'll have a few Model 01 prototypes with us for you to try out, as well as a deconstructed Model 01 and a few earlier prototypes. If folks are interested, we can also do a short talk about the adventure of building your own keyboard from scratch, a short talk or Q&A session about turning your hobby project into your day job, going through a hardware incubator or just about anything else folks want to know about.

RSVPs are encouraged but not required. (In other words, it's ok to show up, even if you didn't RSVP).
Here's the link to RSVP, if you get a chance:

If you've backed our Kickstarter (or promise to), we'll give you stickers.
