It says that the invite link to the Discord is broken. I'm super interested by the way. This board looks beautiful.

Oh my bad, I forgot to update the discord link. It should be working now.  :thumb:

Are the colors going to be applied through electrophoresis, anodization, or cerakote?

Is it normal or my problem that nothing can be seen in the DC channel?

I'm not the biggest fan of this layout for this PCB, mostly just because it usually requires an additional 'modifiers' AND spacebar kit to be purchased in addition to the Base kit when buying keycaps.
But this looks pretty enough that if I got one I would not mind pony-ing up for the extra bits.

The PCB has multiple layouts, were fans of Tsangan so we selected that as our plate layout. From what I know most base kits come with the required keycaps for the layout.

Count me in on this, hoping the number of units will go up enough for me to have a chance at it (i am sure the interest level will be very high).  Not sure how many of the colors you intend to make out of the 50-100 units but hopefully one or two of the more interesting colors make it, look forward to seeing the vote results.

Ahh yeah we just finalized the color selection, we did have to make some modifications but we do like the colors we are going with.

Yeah sorry about that, I was sure I'd used a link that wouldn't expire. Apparently I did not. It should be working now.

Thanks, appreciate the support. We'll definitely try to get the pricing out as soon as we can. We should get going for a prototype soon, we'll have more info for you guys when we go ahead with that.

The Charcoal and Teal colors are going to be applied through anodization. The E-White is applied by electrophoresis I believe.

I was so keen on this board, it was so beautiful until the polished brass was taken away. This is a huge loss, not just to the purchasers but to the community, it was so beautiful that Id call it artistic. Its now a shadow of its old self. Im devastated :(

Oh man Im sorry to hear that.

We tried our best to strike a balance between what our design goals were and pricing, manufacturing etc. We tweaked it to keep it as close to the original design.

Hey guys the prototype has finally arrived!  :D
We are overall pretty satisfied with how it came out. We have some small quality adjustments we will be working on to make sure it is 100% how we want it but otherwise we quite like how it came out and hope you guys feel the same. Here are some pics of the board:




We'd love to read what you guys think.

Im so confused, this is the beautiful polished look - is this going to be the final look of the metal?

That is correct this is the final look we are going for, I apologize if it was not clear what we were aiming for. The brass pieces will be sandblasted since we really like how that looks but we definitely wanted to keep the rest of the bottom reflective. So yup that finishing on the prototype is what we are aiming for.  :thumb:

Hey there. Were waiting for our second prototype with some of the QoL edits we did. We should have that soon and after that we can figure out our GB date. If you have questions dont hesitate to reach out, either here or much easier on discord.

The mirror finish on the base with the maze engraved into the brass weight is my favorite thing... Wow, it honestly looks amazing. The 'logo' is just awesome great job to the designer of it.

Out of all the boards in IC or out currently, this board is *by far* my absolute favorite. The design of the bottom just looks so good. The aesthetic really is unrivaled. I cannot wait to get a chance at this board.
