[IC] Serratus by Keynergy <GB starts on 5/15>
« on: Sun, 21 March 2021, 22:42:57 »
GB starts on 5/15. GB post approved: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=112768.0



Introduction
Hello keyboard enthusiasts, we are excited to introduce the Serratus by Keynergy. Serratus is the first project by Keynergy started back in 2019, we've made several prototypes and ran a local group buy in Korea last year. (These units are being done and started shipping) Serratus features the 2mm plate exposed between the top and bottom housings, PVD brass weight bar on the bottom and beautifully CNC machined sides.



Sale Info
This would be more of pre order than group buy as we already have cases CNCed and plates/ weights are produced. We have 3 options for the case finish including anodization, e-coating and chrome plating. Each base kit will include 1 PCB, 1 Aluminum plate or PVD Brass plate($20 additional), 1 Polycarbonate plate, PVD Brass Weight. Total units for this pre order will be 60 pieces and 5 of them will be the limited Chrome edition. We expect 4 months before the shipping starts.

Typing Videos
Thank you Keynions and Keyrung for the typing test videos!

Very different design, good job! Loving all the options too.
Just being nitpicky here, but I don't like that spacebar hole in plate. Would be cool if a half plate option would be offered, seeing as sandwich mount + 2 mm might be a bit stiff.
Make it fixed WKL bottom row on the plate ;)

It's as durable as other anodized finish but is a finger print magnet  ;D

AFAIK, chrome-plating aluminum is difficult and expensive because the chrome won't stick to the aluminum directly, so you need to first coat it with some intermediate metal. Explains the price tag, but I love that someone is attempting it, and even has a proto!

We are still deciding between raffle and fcfs. We expect pre order to start sometime in April.

AFAIK, chrome-plating aluminum is difficult and expensive because the chrome won't stick to the aluminum directly, so you need to first coat it with some intermediate metal. Explains the price tag, but I love that someone is attempting it, and even has a proto!

Yes, chrome plating is very difficult to work with hence we are limiting the quantity. Also, the pictures are the production units that have been sent to buyers, not prototypes!

What do you mean you don't know how it's going to turn out? All the photos in this post are production units that customers have received and are currently being shipped to them. I understand if you thought all these pictures were renders  :p

I think keeping it without the engraving makes it look more classic. We probably will have a text engraving in our next project!

"Total units for this pre order will be 60 pieces and 5 of them will be the limited Chrome edition."

So...there's zero chance of getting the chrome one and the ones who will get them will flip them for $10k. FML.
