The first step was using the ever popular 65% layout as a starting point, as it has become a hugely popular layout within the enthusiast community over the past year. The Macbook (and Appleā€™s current keyboard layout) was another very influential inspiration for the layout. To top it all off, 0.01 recognized the popularity of the HHKB among enthusiasts, and made sure to incorporate the HHKB stock layout into the z70 as well.

The end result? A fully programmable keyboard that not only supports the standard Apple layout, but also allows for the standard HHKB layout to be fully utilized, with the added functionality of dedicated arrow keys.
