Kontro Groupbuy

Kontro Series is the succesor of THE30 which has been made in 2019. The original 30 key layout is Gherkin layout. For new Kontro Series, an alpha28 layout and a new 29 key layout were also added during the interesting check phase, as Kontro Beta and Kontro Gamma. But not enough number of Kontro Beta was collected. So only Kontro Alpha and Kontro Gamma layout will be made.
