2021-06-13 (Su) Wearable Macro Keyboard BackOfTheHand BotH Modeling revisions

The keyswitches fit perfectly into my newest platform, and the Apple Watch band took a little work, but it fit too. I saw room for improvements and wrote them down. The first thing I did was move my platform code into modules which didn't change the outcome but cleaned up the code. Next, I translated the board holder to the top of the metacarpal platform, which was also convenient.

I put a couple of holes in the platform to mount the board holder. I didn't care for the sunken style of the last model where I was using button-head bolts, so I started using countersunk holes. The metacarpal slab was too long, so I shorted it to match the watch bands more closely, but wide enough that I can add a cover later. I also added places to secure a lid. The newest hardware is going to be a rotary encoder for changing modes quickly. I placed the socket vertically in the board holder wall.
