ButtonShield Revisions's off to the races! It looks like the ButtonShield has taken the early lead over on the OSHW Bank projects page, but the EqualizerShield is going to cut it close :-)

With that in mind, Matt and Mike did another round of revisions from all the suggestions on the ButtonShield schematics from earlier this week. A couple of the big ones: adding a separate Caps Lock button to the corner, flanked by LEDs, and adding the quintessential Space "bar" to the bottom center (thanks Keith, Jason!). The Caps Lock and Space bar are outlined on the bottom, and the 32-button keyboard is shifted up slightly to make room for everything.

What do you think? And let me know if there's anything else I should add - jhuynh at gmail. Pre-buy/build is still open for the ButtonShield here, and to keep tabs on the "OSHW Bank project races", it's all up on the OSHW Bank page here.
