[IC] GMK TeraDrive | JIS, vendors!
« on: Sun, 20 December 2020, 05:42:31 »

GMK TeraDrive
a joint project with yuzu#0108


A keycap set based off the Sega HTR-2106.

ic form





Inspiration

Yuzu saw the Sega HTR-2106.
Yuzu liked it.
We wanted the keycaps.
We made this IC.









Kits

Colour codes will be released at a later date once finalised.

Due to the rarity of the board we can't exactly get one in front of us as of yet, we're still going through as many photos as we can in various lighting conditions to match as closely as possible.

We are actively looking to acquire one.



Base Kit




Extension Kit




Latin Alpha Kit




JIS Mod Kit



Thanks to 2Moons and Konstantin for all their help on this kit, go check out GMK JIS WoB.


Accent Kit

TBD


Renders

Kig Bean








Kig Cucumber




Finder Works En Dash








Finder Works Hyphen








Finder Works Hash Pad (WIP)



More to come soon


Pricing

TBD


Vendors

OCE: Daily Clack
SEA: iLumkb
CN/HK: Thic Thock
NA: TX Keyboards
CA: ApexKeyboards
EU: mykeyboard.eu
UK: Proto[Typist]


To Do

1. Finalise kitting
2. More board renders
3. Finalise vendors
4. Finalise pricing

88. Acquire board for colour matching


Update Log

- 2021-03-18: Updated kit renders
- 2020-12-30: Vendors! Minor kit updates, more reference material
- 2020-12-22: JIS!! base kit overhaul, child kits, more board renders
- 2020-12-20: ic live


Contact

If there's anything not covered in this IC or if you have any other questions, feel free to contact us at Kingk22#2222 and yuzu#0108 on discord.


Special thanks to Yuzu for coming up with this idea.

That's a great idea! We'll look into adding this in the next round of kit changes.

Is this different from colors of ThinkCaps?

Both our colours are custom with the alphas being a very very dark grey (as opposed to Thinkcaps' black) and much lighter mods.

If you want to take this idea to the next level, consider running a JIS compatibility kit. JIS tooling is being made for GMK JIS WoB, so all of the required molds (including 4.5c space) will be available by the time you run this.

Thank you to everyone for the early feedback, there'll be some immediate kit changes coming up very soon to address what we've heard so far, stay tuned!

If you want to take this idea to the next level, consider running a JIS compatibility kit. JIS tooling is being created for GMK JIS WoB, so all of the required molds will be available by the time you run this.

This is the plan for the proposed JIS mod kit, we're in contact with 2Moons and hopefully can work something out.

I'm a broken record at this point but...

If you're basing this off a JIS board, are you planning to support JIS in a separate kit?

Ignore me. I skimmed and assumed. Usually pretty safe for most GMK sets, but (thankfully) not the case here.

Oooh. I like it. Interested.

JFYI, if you wanted to play Sega CD games in 1993, you couldn't just buy a Sega CD module from the Sears catalog. You had to already own a Sega Genesis.
My mom and I did not know this for my 10th birthday until it was too late...

Also fyi, the previous bit of information has nothing to do with this keyset.

Re: [IC] GMK TeraDrive | JIS is here! Updated kitting.
« Reply #44 on: Tue, 22 December 2020, 11:03:14 »
Hi everyone, based on all the feedback and advice so far, we've made some key kitting updates as follows.

Base kit:
- missing quaternary sublegends added
- 00 key added
- additional B key in the base kit
- split spacebars in the base kit
- additional 2.25U shift key in the base kit
- slight updates to correct some of the hiragana sublegends
- R4 ISO key changed
- R1 半/全 key added

Extension kit:
By adding split spacebars to the base kit and not having an accent colour, we've been able to make this kit relatively small.
It's still subject to change but we're hoping this will allow us to keep it fairly priced given it will be a relatively low MOQ kit.

Spacebar kit:
With the split spacebars in the base kit and the 1U keys in the extension kit, we've removing this as a separate kit.
The only thing missing compared to having a standlone kit is 6U spacebar support, this is still under consideration to be added to the base kit.

Latin alpha kit:
Pretty simple kit, includes additional tab and enter keys so that you can cover 2 boards with base + alphas.

JIS kit:
The current kit allows for full JIS layout support, we're also planning on adding some additional keys that would allow for JIS style support on ANSI layout boards.
Massive thanks to 2Moons (check out GMK JIS WoB) and Konstantin for all their help in developing this kit.

Very excited to see this, and thanks as always to 2Moons and konstantin for their efforts in this area!

A couple of comments (I mentioned this in the IC form as well):

  • The ]}む key is missing its quaternary 」 legend.
  • The 無 in 無変換 has the lower-left square filled in, in the render. Same for the top-right of 換.  Is this a mistake in the render, a stylistic choice, or a compromise to deal with GMK's tolerances?
  • While GMK JIS WoB provides a fully compliant JIS kit in the base as its entire raison d'Ítre, this kit demonstrates what a comprehensive add-on kit supporting both Latin monolegend and kana sublegend sets could look like, and I think it does an admirable job! I hope that it succeeds, and if it does I expect that it will serve as an immensely useful reference for future sets which want to explore this kitting. Bravo!

Those are both oversights on my part and have been corrected, these are all new render models I created for this kit so they still need some touching up.

Thanks for the kind words, we're glad to help offer something new to the community!
