The second Amano prototype arrived, with matching smoke polycarbonate wrist wrest and plate I designed. After building it and using it for a couple weeks, I recorded a sound test. It's available here:
I am quite satisfied with the design as is, so I have placed a Rev. 1 production order. There are a couple minor changes to case in Rev 1 from prototype 2:
- Removal of the small pinholes for LEDs. They are unnecessary with translucent PC material, and detract from cleanliness of top case design.
- Added a small cutout logo in the bottom right of plate.
In the meantime I'm finalizing the packaging design, and preparing for logistics. Take care, and thank you.
