Maybe I am missing it, but what is the mounting on this, gasket strips?

Will be gasket mounted.

Sent from my SM-M115F using Tapatalk

During the design phase, I became aware of the Frusta Fundemental and knew that this question would come up. Iskar and Frusta Fundamental are not associated in any way and development on Iskar had already begun before the Frusta was announced (August 2020). I was simply waiting for a suitable time to post an IC.

what's the front height of the keyboard?
One concern I have with Frusta Fundamental is that the front height of 22mm is too high to type with comfort.

The front height of Iskar is 20mm (subject to change), but around 20mm +- 3mm is pretty standard for keyboards in general.

Major things of note:

- Gasket Mount design is confirmed. Plate design is not.

- Iskar's switches are oriented to not interfere with any keycaps (GMK Included). The orientation may affect RGB lighting.

Thank you for your interest!

- Iskar features North Facing switches, not south facing.


Why make this decision to go back to North facing as showed in the renders, which you corrected it would not be?  I'm hoping you made a typo here.

It will not come with switches.

I think they meant "will the sound test be performed with both linears and tactiles"
