In for 1
Just a quick WIP post... I have been working on this but real life got in the way so it's taking a wee little longer than expected.
Official status report:
Measurements : 100%
I needed to take some measurements in terms of pin spacing and connector design from the actual hardware so it would fit properly. This is done!
Parts footprints : 60%
Started doing the component footprints I'll use for the PCB components -- the socket and the fold fingers. I use KiCad and, obviously, these have to be built mostly from scratch as they're not part of the available component libraries. This isn't hard,but it's quite time consuming. Socket is mostly done, gold fingers will be next.
PCB design and routing: 0%
I have the measurements I need, but haven't started this yet.
I'll keep everyone posted as I go along, hope I'll have some nice 3D renders soon!

I'm down for one as well!
Yes, I'm alive and this *will* happen. I've been ridiculously busy with real life in the last few months and had to take some time off from this project as I just didn't have the time work on it. I can't give anyone a firm date for the first prototype but rest assured that when it's working you'll know.
Thanks for your continued interest it really matters to me!
Seems like this would only be a stone's throw away from beign a perpendicular riser for CPS3 as well.
At least with STV the cart height makes storing the PCB and fitting the PCB into some cabs difficult so there's a good case for it.
