[IC] Details and Form | Marboard (1) | A 60% Marble Keyboard Case
« on: Sat, 18 February 2023, 15:46:45 »
(IC Form: https://forms.gle/wxSfLzg9QVcR9enr9



Hello everyone,
Today, we are releasing an interest check for the Marboard (1) - a versatile, 60% fully marble keyboard case that can be tray mounted or gasket mounted with gummy O-rings and supports most PCBs. The Marboard (1) will be available for purchase in two stone varieties - White (Carrara Marble) and Black (Nero Marquina Marble). The keyboards will be crafted out of a single slab of the marble of your choice and then hand-polished to deliver a premium finish. The finished board measures 320x140x40mm, slightly larger than a regular 60% case, and weighs 2 kilograms.
We are planning to price the keyboard at 300, and we will only be producing 20 units in total, though this is subject to change depending on the results of this interest check. We will post updates whenever something happens on Geekhack, Reddit, and Discord.
If you're interested, the GB is expected to begin in March or April, and the shipment will take place within 3 months if the IC results are good. Here are some useful links and other information for you:

Can you show an image of the underside please?

How viable is it to make one in HHKB style, either with 6, 6.25, or 7u?  :))

If this one does well we will defininitely consider HHKB, due to it allowing gasket mounting.

HHKB is definitely possible, and if this one does well, there will be a strong posibility of it happening.

Here is a view of the bottom, sorry that is not high quality.
