This looks great. A 65% with a rotary encoder is one of my board goals, but I only wish this had WK, hotswap, and RGB too. Hope this GB does well for future iterations

Thanks all for tuning into the stream last night, we have some typing videos to show off some aspects of the board that we think are unique.

Here is the Noon typing test (Lubed Creams, half plate, 1.2mm flex cuts):


Here is the After typing test (Lubed H1 60g, half plate, 1.6mm flex cuts):

feature=youtu.be

While both flex the same amount, the After typing test video especially demonstrates it - pay attention to the alpha keys as phlop types with only regular typing pressure.

Praying that this doesn't get promoted on Taeha or BT so that people that actually want one can get one.  ;D

there is a gap between Space and the purple Alt, that is larger than other gaps, in the e-white Noon prototype,
looks like it should be 1.5u but you used a 1.25u keycap, right?

Does this have any designs on the back? Also, do you guys allow users from outside of US to use proxy?

No designs on the back, it's completely sterile.

And yes, you may use a proxy if you're located outside the US.

From the main post, right under the prototype picture:

"Prototype error visible here, with the right side blocker clearly placed incorrectly. This has since been fixed and will be reflected in the final product!"

Can we use same proxy? My friend and I basically live in Korea using same proxy. Of course we will submit both of our raffles in each others house.
but I was wondering if we can use same address for proxy. Do we need to tell you guys about that beforehand?

Hey there, yeah, feel free to use the same proxy. We do have ways of telling a difference between what is legitimate or not :) Thanks for asking.

Yooo where is the white wave pattern desk mat from?
The keyboard design is cool too. I like the spaced arrows in Noon a lot

Very interested in the After.

You say plate will be half-plate Aluminum + others TBD - just curious what other materials you're most strongly considering?

Also, in this picture, is this weight something difference than brass? Are you experimenting with different weights?

Lovely boards, wish I could join in this. living in Alaska and seeing 'conus' is very depressing. I hope the GB goes well!

Here in Hawaii and feel the same way. Don't quite understand why US = CONUS, especially with similar shipping rates via USPS as a carrier. Was interested but time to get cucked again~ Good luck to all those that can enter!

The weight is brass, I'm not great at photos!

We discussed it and we'll be allowing US as a whole, including Alaska and Hawaii.

These are both gorgeous. Nice work on the design and prototypes. Noon has stolen my heart with its classy minimal facade. Looking forward to all of this.

For the rotary/dial, can you please give an idea of what its currently mapped to in terms of function? I've only seen the Satisfaction with its LED to compare against. Thanks

You can map the rotary to anything you want. It is fully customizable. People use it often as a volume knob or brightness changer.

Timelines are extremely rough because of unstable world conditions. We estimate a 4 month minimum.

In light of confusion despite all the info being in the main body of the post, I would like to clarify a few things:

- The bezels will be smaller, as we have said in the main body of the original post. Please, refer to the renders for the most up to date bezel sizes. The prototypes used M3 screws, but final production units have M2.5 screws instead.
- I can't believe I have to say this a million times, but the Noon prototype has an error in it and has since been fixed for final production, the gap between arrow keys and right blocker is NOT intended.
- These are TWO different keyboards.

To all who have read the IC, negative and positive feedback alike, thank you - love to hear it.

****ing sick ass keyboard, Its really cool! i love the knob on the afters very much what i was looking for. The only problem is i am poor, and my parents wouldn't never let me spend 500 on a keyboard.
