designed but not tested


    the bulbul writer project is similar to project plapple however much simpler. The m0116/8 keyboards used alps switches and PCBs making a pcb retrofit easy. This project can reuse every piece of the old m0116/8 except for the PCB (which would be replaced). The USB ports are set up with a mux meaning only one can be used at a time but it at least allows you to choose which side.
