[IC] Vast60- 60% keyboard
« on: Tue, 02 February 2021, 21:40:00 »
As a classic PCB for many years, GH60 usually be used by Tray Mount. Our team made a small change to the case by changing the top case so that the case could be support more layout. The popular Gasket Mount was used to improve the type of feeling.
In order to meet the needs of some people for bluetooth, we add the position of battery compartment inside the bottom case and add a layer of poron to optimize the abnormal sound.


Layout: HHKB, WKL, WK,Can support 60% series  most of layout


Typing Angle: 6
Construction: Gasket mount or bottom mount.
Because this case is compatible with general 60% PCB,so the basic kit not include pcb,If necessary, you can buy it separately. The PCB will support QMK&VIA.
In addition, in order to be compatible with Bluetooth, we will offer PC and FR4 plate for the material option of plate.



The price
Target  price: $145;
The price of PCB is $25.
Kit includes: bottom case*1, top case *1, plate *1, 3.5mm Porpon sandwich pad *1, Porpon gasket tape, sandwich pad *1, EVA portable packing *1, bottom silencer pad, and other accessories
 
Schedule:
The first batch protype has finished.The second batch of protype will be started soon, and the case color and surface treatment process will be decided by the following IC vote.



The follow-up plan
In order to improve our product series, we will continue to launch the following series of kits in the future. If you have any suggestions, please join us for discussion.

Pretty cool! Looks nice, pricing is reasonable. I like the compatibility with standard 60% pcbs, gives them a good use. Another board that comes to mind that does this is the Brutal60, for example. Thank you for taking the time to get a prototype done. GLWIC!

Some of your images are very small, not sure if that was intentional or an accident.
This and the swiss cheese keyboard is the next generation of keyboards

I don't really understand how this would mount, do you have a diagram or exploded view or something? Looks promising otherwise : )

Very fair price and good job with having a prototype! Not a fan of the aesthetic you're going for but this is definitely something I can easily recommend to friends trying to get into the hobby/can't justify $300+ on a case. GLWIC!

Gasket mount with <200$ price point. That's a go for me.
Oh, and please consider a (dark) purple color  :D

This is a cool idea and I like that this case is supposed to support a lot of different kinds of layouts! A little bit confused by the final image you shared with the 4 different keyboards - I'm not sure how those layouts can be supported by the same 60% kayboard. Unless those are just sneak previews of completely different boards?

In fact, it supports more 60% series layouts because the top case is very simple

Dark / deep purple would be nice indeed. Also having polypropylene / nylon plate options would be very sweet.

target price seems low for sufficient QC and also seems low as an incentive for project follow-through.
