A few screenshots of the vid & fixed up a pic of the PCB. Some details gleamed from the reddit post.
- kailh choc type switches, for keyboards
- display is basic ILI9341 painted with black marker
- Teensy controller and SGTL5000 audio codec. Optimized libraries for this (sic) application.
- The UI is made on Adafruit GFX
