Geim65 - Circle - Triangle - Square

The Geim65 is our premiere Keyboard, complementing our Jacket line of switches.

We made a bunch of switches we are really proud of, inspired by the Squid Games series and now we are wanting to try and make a unique keyboard. We wanted something that was easy to build, had an interesting style, and unique mounting methods that were bouncy and sounds amazing. After working to refine a design for months we have some prototypes that we are happy with and now we are going to run an in-stock sale.

We’ve implemented the following QOL features: force-break gaskets, a ball latch for ease of use,
a unique waffle weight for improved acoustics, three mounting methods, and our proprietary bowl-like isolation gasket for a modified bottom/pin mount experience and additional force breaking.

The Geim65 is a tri-mount leaf-spring 65% keyboard you won't want to miss!

There will be 50 units in stock that should be available between March and May 2024.
If we get enough interest, we would love to do a larger run to help cut costs. We would love to aim for the $200-$300 range.

Real photos will be added shortly, as we have a green and red sample in hand.
Tentative Pricing: ~$400 per kit

EDIT: We are waiting on the fourth sample unit (the third from Sinorise). I want to experiment with how having 8 total gasket tabs would compare to how it is now, increase some of the tolerances in the gasket areas, and add additional forcebreaks between the case and weight/accent pieces.

Return of the king -- I'm definitely getting this as soon as it launches. Good stuff.

Huh, I think this is the first time I've seen a board with ball-latch and a cherry lip. What's the front height?

Hey, it has a 19.8mm front height. Had to increase the front height to adjust for it.
