    The Story Of M0llY

    M0llY started off in the old TKC office nearly 2 years ago. I wanted to keep the retro-vibe of the TKC1800 alive, and also wanted to include the beloved aesthetics of old school Macintosh keyboards. The M0110 seemed like a good place to start, but I wanted more, primarily a numpad (I love them... fight me). I sent an M0110-A off to u/blindassassin to create a modern, geometric replica.

    The Name: During our conversations on Slack I grew tired of typing M0110-A so I just started calling her M0llY. (Leet speak throwback of sorts.) It's hard to deny its a catchy name. 

    The Flower: Is meant to be symbolic. The inspiration of this design being Apple before they became what it is today. Blossoms come before fruit; I asked Emil to draw me an SVG apple blossom. Then I had it dipped in 24k gold.

    The Hub: We needed to relocate the USB connection lower in the case, so naturally a breakout board would be added. I decided if were going to add a second PCB, it should do something. Again, I tasked Blind with the job. And now, high speed data transfer is here! I believe this to be a community first! 

    The Rest: I owe a many great deal of thanks to others that help make this happen. Terry Mathews for the firmware, OneCreativeMind for the packaging, Jebbra for the logo, Emil for the flower design, C3 for manufacturing contacts / facilitation, Forrest for the bulletproof PCB, Mint for all the help marketing, Kema for leading the HTML5 site... and so many more.
