Title: [GB] GMK Lunar 🚀 — All Kits Will Be Made; Final Numbers Posted
Post by: Moridin on Wed, 04 March 2020, 05:48:57
Meine Damen und Herren, Mesdames et Messieurs, 女士們, 先生們, Ladies and Gentlemen...

Ever since June rolled over last year, I have been thinking how to commemorate the Apollo 11’s mission’s 50th anniversary. Then I remembered the Apollo Guidance Computer (it made waves over the internet last year, because people were trying to prove that Margaret Hamilton didn’t deserve any credit for it) and its interface — DSKY (pronounced “dis-kee”).

Start date

USA — March 6, 9:00 pm EST (e.g. New York)
Europe — March 7, 3:00 am CET (e.g. Paris)
Asia — March 7, 10:00 am SGT (e.g. Singapore)
Australia — March 7, 1:00 pm AEDT (e.g. Melbourne)

Vendors


Inspiration

[attachimg=1]

As you can see, the DSKY has a black keypad with white legends, yellow indicator lights, and a green electroluminescent seven-segment display. Commands were entered numerically, as two-digit numbers — called Verb and Noun. The first one represented the action being issued, while the second represented the data that would be changed.

[attachimg=2]

One of my goals was to use the legends and values from DSKY’s various keys and indicators, in place of traditional modifier legends. This in turn led me to a decision to use stock GMK colours, to make everything easier and more affordable.

GMK Lunar uses a medium 2B gray for the alphas and mods with a lighter 2M gray for legends. The Numpad, which I consider an integral part of the whole design and colourway, uses the darker N9 gray with 2M legends. I also chose N6 yellow as the main accent colour, with N9 legends, where appropriate. The Novelty Kit has a set of optional “Master Alarm” accents — these will be RO2.

GMK Lunar Kits

[attachimg=3]

The Command Module (core kit) will most keyboards up to 100% layouts, including 60%, 65%, 75%, and TKLs. Please take note of the custom legends, inspired by the DSKY interface, as well as the sublegends on the alphas, commemorating the Apollo 11 mission and the three astronauts on board — Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong, and Michael Collins.


[attachimg=4]

The novelty kit offers custom keys for all rows in the default grey for a more subtle look, the default accent yellow (N6), for those who prefer a little splash of colour, to MASTER ALARM red accents (RO2), for those who want a more dramatic effect.

[attachimg=5]

The Lunar Module’s dark alphas are meant for those, who want to deviate a little from the original design and require more contrast between their modifiers and alphas. Coupled with the Command Module, you will be able to cover two keyboards with these kits, if you use specific enough layouts on both.

Extra space keys made for split spacebar users, Alice users, and those that require 6u centre stem and off-centre stem bars.

[attachimg=7]

This special kit was built with the expertise of MKUltra, who will make sure that MOQ on this set is met, and it’s meant to cover all manners of 40%, ortholinear, and ergo keyboards.

GMK Lunar Pricing

This set is supremely unique in terms of the number of moulds that GMK will make for Lunar — I believe there will be a total of 77 new moulds. I would also like to take this chance to thank GMK for all their help in graciously participating financially in this set, to help bring the price down, as well as the vendors, who have minimised their profits, to make it easier for all of you guys.


Shipping is expected around September/October 2020.

Images of Salvun's artisans coming soon.

Sidenote

The base kit, at 160 USD, with included numpad, is still cheaper than GMK Phosphorous was with a separate base kit (129 USD base + 34 USD numpad = 163 USD) and GMK Apollo (120 USD base + 50 USD numpad = 170 USD).

SpaceCables x Lunar Collab → (https://spacecables.net/product/space-cables-x-lunar/)

[attachimg=23]

SpaceCables have created a custom cable for GMK Lunar in its colourway with a coil and Aviator connector. The cables are 1.8 metres long (6 feet) and can be specified with USB-C or Mini-USB connectors on the keyboard side, with USB-A connectors on the computer side. The keyboard part uses a grey shade, while the computer end is black. The sleeve naturally uses the main yellow accent colour.

If something doesn't hit MOQ, does that mean if we paid by PayPal, we won't be able to get a full refund? Does Google pay have the same issue?

Please ask your vendor to verify but AFAIK you should get a full refund. And since Apollo 11 made it back to Earth, we're going to hit MOQ. I believe.

First weekend sales are coming along nicely! The Command Module has reached 40% of MOQ already, while the novelty kit (Houston! We Have A Problem!) is at 48%. Alphas are following nicely at 22%, and the Landing Pad kit is behind those at 13%. Assembly Kit is at 4%, but since it's bought out, MOQ will be met and it will get made either way.

Desk mat sales are coming along nicely, with the Astronaut and Technical Flight Plan blowing past MOQ already. The other two are halfway there.

Information based on partial data from vendors.

Cheers everyone and thank you for contributing to the final success of this set! 🍻

Yes, it is. Sales are really nice and I’m very pleased with the way this is going. Price is high so I’m extremely grateful to everyone who supports this set and wants it to make it come to life.

Also, please buy more Assembly so MKUltra doesn’t have a heart attack. 😅

Dvorcols work is amazing as always.

We have partial numbers for Week 1 sales, without Daily Clack for the moment (these should be updated later this week). The core kit (Command Module) is 66% along the flight time to MOQ, with the novelty kit beating it at 73%. Alphas are at 38% and Spacebars at 24%. Mat sales are insane — a total of 183 have been ordered so far — along with 76 artisans by Salvun. Thank you everyone! 💛

Buzz Aldrin turned 90 years old in January, and at this age, he is in the very highest of risk categories for COVID-19.

"Buzz, what are you doing to protect yourself from the coronavirus?" I asked.

"Lying on my ass and locking the door," he replied, without hesitating.

Dear fellow-fans-who-love-space-stuff!

It is with the utmost happiness, especially in these troubling times, that I can announced that GMK Lunar has reached MOQ on the Core Kit (Command Module) and Novelty Kit (Houston! We Have A Problem!). We are less than 40% of the way to MOQ for the dark alphas (Lunar Module) and we still require 60% more thrust for the Spacebars Kit (Landing Pad). The Service Module (Assembly Kit) needs more rocket fuel from everyone — it has quite a way to go still.

I would also like to remind you that this group buys ends on April 3, in around 10 days, depending on where you are on Earth, so please make your flight plan accordingly.

🦠 Having said all that, I hope you are all well and doing everything you can to best take care of your familes and yourselves. This wonderful keyboard hobby comes second, so please make sure you have everything you need first, before you pre-order anything.

Thank you everyone and stay safe! 💛

This is not yet 100% certain, but we have 10 days to go, so at this rate, we should be at around 90-100 MOQ, so I'd wager the Lunar Module will make it without issues. And this isn't accounting for the usual spike of sales towards the end of a GB. Spacebars might need some help, and with all the COVID-19 troubles, Assembly needs more ❤️ too.

Dark alphas are close to MOQ, so they should hit with extras without problems. More info on Assembly after GB ends.

This set is perfect, unfortunately only just got into keycaps and a month too late :(

See "All kits will be made. There will be extras." would the sets be up for sale at the time of delivery (Q4/Q1 2021) or would there be a pre-order option? Of missed keycaps this set is in the #1 spot.

Daily Clack usually sells extras earlier. The other vendors do so when they take delivery.

Of course!

PS. Don’t regret being too poor. Money comes and goes, it’s not the most important thing in the world. Just do what you need to do to move on. Family, health, etc. is what matters. There will always be other GMK sets.

Any new updates on the deskmats? I've found myself putting in stock deskmats in the cart all the time but then changing my mind and waiting for when this will ship out, but I am starting to grow even more impatient (I understand it is out of your hands, this is more of a me problem than a you problem haha I just really want a deskmat asap for my mouse and expensive keebs.) If there is any update on your end, where should I look? And are you expecting them to come anytime soon? Have they been produced and are they being shipped or are they still in production? Sorry for all the questions and the persistent nagging from us buyers, but I think a lot of us were hoping to have our deskmats by now. I think that this was my first GB as well, and damn it's so crazy thinking back to the time when i had ordered this and how much has changed in my life (including the keebs I have and am currently using) since then; it's been so long! Although a lot of the rapid and significant change can also be attributed to COVID and all its effects on our lives, of course :( Hope to have my Astronaut deskmat on my desk as soon as possible and I appreciate you guys making this set and bringing it to GB! Especially thankful for the super dope deskmat designs, I didn't even buy any of the keycaps (I'm not really a big MX fan, I have liked alps a lot more for quite a while as I am or at least was a clicky fanatic) but I still ended up buying the deskmats and was even tempted to buy multiple of the designs since they were all so cool and unique! So in essence, thank you for running this GB and please give us whatever information you have on the deskmat production and shipment!

I think that these issues should be resolved by Moridin, FutureFunk also has delays starting from October 2020, and only recently TKC were able to contact GMK, having received specific deadlines

Thanks for the update. This delay isn't your fault, but just shows how far behind GMK is with their production. Until we start seeing regular GMK deliveries and realistic timelines, i stopped buying into more GMK GBs.

Still super excited for Lunar and the day i get it on my board is gonna be amazing.
