[IC] PooPooPeePee Keyboard Carnival Round Three

PooPooPeePee Keyboard Carnival Round Three

AKA. P4kcr3 (pronounced however you feel like it)

Before I get started, I think its only fair to warn everyone,  this post is brought to you by the 40's discord

Don't click away! I promise, it'll ship,
Personally, I'm only concerned with how the keyboard looks and feels, and I think You'll be pleased with that.

I was inspired to make this keyboard after I modded my minivan case by removing the center 3 standoffs,
this creates a bouncy typing feel under the most centered alphas, which is quite nice, however it still had hard tray mount feels around the mounting points, which strangely encroach on the punctuation cluster, this made me hunger for more.

The hunger lead me to design the P⁴KCR3, a plateless, gasket mount, milled POM case, that utilizes the edges of the PCB, and some gorilla gripp’n strips of silicone foam to produce an extremely bouncy and quite plocky board.
This board mimics and expands on the benefits of the modded tray mount minivan, while eliminating much of the harshness and inconsistent hard spots.

The typing feel is extremely bouncy in the center, while the mods still retain enough stiffness under them for a solid bottom out, with a bit of give.

Big thanks to everyone who commented and filled out the IC today! I'm glad people seem interested in my design.   40 responses in about 30 hours.
couldn't have asked for a better Day 1 of IC   :thumb:

For people who saw the bounce and thought 'thats too much bounce'
under the guidance of da 40's bois, I added some gasket tabs to the center of the base and the center of the PCB
(the PCB ones are half height pads to compensate for the added 2mm distance needed to reach the bottom of the flex well.)

This reduces the flex by a good amount, I am also working with Esca to try to implement a plate and confirm compatibility with the getawayvan PCB.

Will this come with a Minivan/Ketch/other PCB or would we need to source that ourselves?

Any info on price or colour options?

the current plan is no on PCBs but I have launched a second IC form to determine what percentage of people need a PCB, as well as other questions, so I am certainly open to it.
Prices are looking to be pretty accurate, I will release final pricing for the POM/brass units closer to when I plan to begin the GB. I am rather confident, excluding acts of dog, that the GB prices will not be higher than those currently listed in the IC.(and here)
($125 for full POM, MOQ 50)
($169 for POM top Brass bottom, MOQ 50)
($210 for full Brass, MOQ 50)
($260 for the FE, total 10)

Max units for R3 (excluding FE) is 100, this could be 2 skus of 50, however if people can come together around 1 sku we may be able to acheive additional price breaks,
if more than 50 people actually want this board

Alright folks, apologies to those waiting for the POM and brass units, but due to my transition to a new manufacturer, I found it prudent to run another round of prototypes. these prototypes are the founders edition, once the founders edition is complete, and people are satisfied with the quality of the boards. I will progress to running the POM and brass units. This will most likely be in 2 months time, thank you for your patience, the PooPooPeePee Keyboard Carnival will come to a town near you soon.
