TKC CandyBar - The Click-o-stick

UPDATE: Left handed numpad version in the works! 

Introducing the TKC CandyBar. This Click-O-Stick is brought to you by TKC to satisfy the need for a compact board with full size features and an incredibly attractive price-point! 

Honch0 here (Jason). Ill level with you. I like my arrow keys. I also like my numpad. This has kept me away from using my compact boards. I still collect them, but they are show-pieces more than battle station wares. I recently sold my Minivan to a really nice guy in Australia. I thought to myself, "why cant there be a 40 with a numpad? And arrows.." I drove straight home and drew up the keymap. I got u/blindassassin111 on the horn and said "LETS DO THIS!". 3 weeks later, we have prototypes in hand and were testing. u/terrymathews is working on the firmware and we will have some solid numbers in the coming weeks. We plan to have a group buy going my mid September. 

So heres the details. There are 2 PCB versions and 2 kits. You can get either PCB with in either kit.

This kit looks amazing, but is there any possibility that we could get a kit without switches?
