What's this evil sorcery on the bottom row?  How is the space bar split?  It looks like 2.75 and 2.75, but how the heck does that add up to 7?  I is confuzed

Post by: dallman5 on Sat, 24 August 2019, 00:40:14

I had a similar idea for a board ages ago but never acted on it, so needless to say I'm very interested! A few questions though...


1) Will 4mm plates be the only option? If so, are you open to sharing the plate files so that people can get their own cut after the fact?
2) 4mm POM sounds intriguing, would you be able to make a sound test for it?
3) Can you provide a layout diagram for the key sizes? I can't quite tell the bottom row key sizes from the pictures provided.
4) Whats with the hole on the top middle of each half? I personally find it a bit unsightly on an otherwise clean-looking board.


Sorry for bombarding you with questions.  Looking forward to true HHKB layout kustom  8)

1. 4mm plates only and I will always release plate files post preorder dates.
2. Soon tm
3. Iíll provide a pic + kle tomorrow.
4. The two inner ports connect the board together. The ports on the outer sides allow you to plug a usb c cable from either end.

Goodnight folks will answer more questions tomorrow

Edit:
4. The holes are indicator ledís for connectivity

Also curious. Keyset compatibility is a very important aspect. Please show us KLE layout.

Looks really interesting. Are the proto pictures intentionally unclear though? That's annoying. Please add more photos that are less "artsy" but actually show some details...

Sorry man, I fail to see where I was rude... That was definitely not my intention.

You have a really nice product, but the detaild in the IC are lacking. The pictures are pretty, but show little :) Looking forward to more details.

If you're being genuine (I believe you are) I'd recommend running your comment past a friend or a loved one and ask them to help you see how that was rude. It could be good, you might need some feedback on social interaction. Have a blessed night

That's the combo I would get if mixed was an option. I guess if two people wanted the same combo, they could order one color each and swap later...

Well, OG HHKB layout has 7u spacebar, right? That just doesn't split (3.5u space...?) The largest small spacekey is 3u (which I dislike due to lower compatibility); 2x 3u = 6u, but there aren't any extra keys. So is each side of the bottom row shifted 0.5u to the center? I guess we'll find out tomorrow ;)

An HHKB has a 6u spacebar, its just MX HHKB boards that typically use 7u spacebar because it's more common (i.e. OG Cherry boards).  At any rate this is actually a 5u spacebar in total as OP mentioned that they're 2.25u and 2.75u in an earlier comment.

Thanks for the clarification, I'm not that familiar with HHKB. The 2.25u/2.75u split spacebar is the ideal solution as the spacekeys are widely available or can even be replaced by shift keys. Must have missed that comment.

Big thumbs up!

This is basically the same design that Greenwald sold to people to pay for the Lumina issues he had right?

No thanks. You're a little too creepy/vindictive seeming.

I agree that the user in question is definitely too involved and that the intent is fairly clearly vindictive but I think the information being provided is also fairly relevant. I think it should be stated, for clarity's sake and transparency if nothing else, that the design in question that is being pitched has been ran prior in a small quantity and is by Tesletron/Greenwald.

Personally I am one of the people that believe Tesletron needs help to get out of the slum that he (willingly and consciously or not) got himself into with his buy(s) and the OP may be helping to try and remedy that while also clearly profiting from it, neither of them should necessarily be shamed for this particular instance. That said, it's still a massively touchy subject, and rightfully so, for a lot of others.

In my opinion it needs to be stated who the designer is, how many units were made as "one offs" prior, what Tesletron's involvement is (if any) past the design stage and any other relevant information. Then again, considering that didn't happen with other ICs/GBs that were obviously successful regardless, I might be in the minority that cares and thus am not holding my breath.

Curseproject is not me, and I never distributed the files. I was taken advantage of by a scammer, CE, who at the time misled me into thinking he was a friendly person who liked rendering and designing. If people want to do this sort of stuff with my designs and betray my goodwill, then so be it, but I want it clear that this person is not me and I never said I would distribute the files.

Lol just make it for less with the open sourced files.

Is it really less, though?

People don't want to deal with the hassle of sinking thousands of hours and dollars into development, engineering, prototyping, and ultimately, coordination and distribution of dozens of keyboards. It's not "for less," you just pay with time instead of money. The point of a groupbuy is that somebody else--possibly several orders of magnitude smarter and more experienced--does all the hard work for us and we reap the tactile benefits. What's so wrong with them making a few bucks along the way?

The level of sheer stupidity here is insane. Nobody wants the ****ing files. Nobody cares. We want a split staggered keyboard with a thicc ass plate.

I appreciate the response Tesletron, but I'd personally have liked to have heard this and further details from the GB runner - the person people will be handing their money over to and who they'll need to rely on and trust for the next x amount of months who is seemingly reputable. This is no longer your responsibility as per what you've stated, but it definitely is his/theirs.

I just find it unsettling that such information would be omitted in the first place when clearly OP (and pretty much everyone else) knows the situation and your involvement is extremely delicate. It makes me uneasy when it comes to a product that would otherwise have been a no-brainer of a purchase, and that's pretty sad. Sad for me that is, because clearly people had no issue buying out the (admittedly fairly limited) spots for both the Kepler and the Sirius.

You are right. I'm not pretending to be responsible for this GB or anything, I just wanted to say my part. Beyond that, I have my own stuff to deal with and generally don't want drama as it impedes my ability to do what I need to do to move on with my life.

It makes me uneasy when it comes to a product that would otherwise have been a no-brainer of a purchase, and that's pretty sad. Sad for me that is, because clearly people had no issue buying out the (admittedly fairly limited) spots for both the Kepler and the Sirius.

You are right. I'm not pretending to be responsible for this GB or anything, I just wanted to say my part. Beyond that, I have my own stuff to deal with and generally don't want drama as it impedes my ability to do what I need to do to move on with my life.

Thanks for chiming in Tes.

Vigrith, Tes and I have come to the agreement months back they he gives ups the design rights or any monetary gains in exchange that I fulfill the one-offs/founder's edition participants and get their orders fulfilled. The prototypes that you see in the op is the actual prototypes that belong to these people funded solely by Project Keyboard. I will not release the names or any further information as I respect their identity and do not want them to be involved in any of this unnecessary drama. If you are genuinely interested in this board, I welcome you guys to this IC/GB and hope that we stay on track with what we are all here for: Keyboards.

What drama? You had one guy randomly come out of left field with a bunch of actually relevant information that was seemingly not going to be shared otherwise, the fact he appears to be a raving lunatic does not invalidate the fact that it's unsettling to not mention something of this magnitude of relevance prior to being asked to (nicely or otherwise).

There's no drama here, and I definitely don't think the names of the backers should be revealed, that was never my intent. My sole point is that I think when it comes to such a touchy subject for so many people (who are owed items, who paid for GBs they haven't received, who paid for one offs they haven't received, etc), transparency without having to be nudged about it is key.

I have no issue with people working with Tesletron, he's an amazing designer no doubt about it, and if nothing else I think helping him out is the humane thing to do. That said, it doesn't invalidate the fact his name (and by association, anyone working with him) comes with warranted and earned baggage that cannot be ignored. People need to be made aware of that whether you guys like it or not, I think that's the bare minimum of a courtesy toward your prospect clients so that they can then make an informed decision regarding not only whether or not they are interested in the board but also if it's something they feel comfortable supporting all things considered. Same way people can keep buying counterfeit tealios if they want to support the factory in question, it's just about making an informed decision (be it "wrong" or "right").

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems that you're concerned with who is involved with the prototyping, production, and fulfillment. If that's the case, it's just me.

I'm not concerned about that at all, I'm really not sure how that can even be what one takes away from what I've been saying.

I'l be concise in case the message is getting lost, I'm concerned with the fact that the person who designed this board has very questionable, withstanding reputation within the community and his involvement was willingly withheld when pitching an IC/GB. To tie into what you just said, prior to his stepping in and your clarification, it was also not stated whether he had further involvement in the project or not.

I don't think whether or not that information is relevant is up for discussion, regardless of people's "I want it and that's all that matters" mentality. I'm not here to tell you how to run your business, I'm arguing because I think people should strive to be provided more concrete information than what they do much of the time (not just here) to prevent **** hitting the fan as it has plenty of times in the past.

I literally just stated that my problem is with transparency to the prospect buyers, I think being offered an avenue to personally contact you in private defeats the purpose and shows little interest in addressing the concern.

If you think people have no right in knowing someone who owes community members several thousand dollars' worth of merchandise, that's been acting weird and who's generally regarded as being super sketchy (not by me, and he knows that) is even remotely involved in a very expensive board you're trying to pitch then that's entirely your prerogative, as is addressing it if/when it is brought up by someone else; be it me or the other guy that was going mental with the files earlier. I clearly disagree, which is why I brought it up publicly, I think brushing it off as "drama" is just damage control.

That said, I have no interest in furthering the conversation here nor via discord.

Uhhhhhh anyway before someone else tries to reclaim the last word

let me express hype

This looks great and I am totally ready for it. Might be my endgame ergo and HHKB rolled into one.

I've got a few questions others might have:
- I know you can't really pin $ down early in an IC, but do you anticipate differences in pricing for case colors, or only plate?
- The IC just went up but you already have a proto in hand. You haven't shared a GB date yet, but are you preparing to launch this before EOY? Q1? Q2?

In the next couple of months. I generally donít like opening an IC without a prototype in hand. Iíll have those KLE and an expanded view hopefully tonight. Colors will not change the price at all. The plate material will since 4mm pvd brass is quite expensive.

The 4mm pom is approximately 2.5mm thicker than the 1.5mm pom. :D
Jokes aside it should be less flexy, but dampen some of the higher pitch sounds and resonate more of the deeper pitch sounds.

I wish there was some solution for the bottom row to have the left- and rightmost keys further left and right as they are on the HHKB. Either 2.75-2.75, an inside bezel on the bottom row, or something. It is regrettable that the / key is directly above a quarter unit of open space when it is always surrounded on two sides by modifier keys on all other orthodox keyboards, I think it will somewhat diminish the 'feng shui' with two-tone sets.

Other than that small nitpick the design is impeccable and I will strongly considering buying it if it's within my means.

Then you'll sell it on mechmarket waiting for similar keyboard only to find out it's been delayed because of _____. So now you're frantically looking to re-purchase the board you just bought for more than what you sold it for.

Dope, clean design. Would love a good solution for keeping halves together, but am interested regardless.

I'm definitely interested in swapping a white half for a black half or vice versa. If someone wants to get down on that, hit me up. I've got a great trade history on mm.

If I'm not mistaken, aren't you able to find a soldering kit at some maker studios, maker spaces or some kind of gathering place for makers/hobbyists? Someone at work recently told me about them, but I haven't had a chance to look into them yet.

Either way, this board is so clean. I'm very into it as well.

Who better to answer than the queen of rose gold herself?

So if those pictures are accurate, it looks like the rose gold leans slightly more toward the ďgoldĒ than the ďrose,Ē especially when directly compared to the Olivia set thatís on there. Itís also possible that color calibration on my phone isnít the best.

Still looks really good.

Actually, I might be wrong. This photo shows that the shade of Rose gold ano is almost exactly that of the Olivia spacebar. Maybe itís just the lighting situation that has me thinking itís not as pink as I thought.

I think itís definitely possible to make a cable between the two halves look good. Especially if you maybe already have a custom coiled/aviator cable and you match that color.

I wonder if this kit would include super short custom cables in different colors. It might make the buying process easier on everyone since they donít have to source the cable on their own.

Can we get a typing test?

Also is it possible to make both halves wireless?

The board as a whole could be made wireless (Bluetooth), but the halves would still need to be connected by cable. Doing it otherwise would require a lot more effort.

If you're looking for a fully wireless split board, take a look at the Uni660 (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=98905.0), but keep in mind that it's not Bluetooth.

I actually wouldn't mind having it wireless instead of bluetooth since it's probably better anyways. But if the Halves still need the cable then I guess it's not worth it .

and that's a good idea b/c I'm sure there are lots of issues with the interconnecting cable and being able to use 1 side only... and mixing that all in with qmk and (hopefully) VIA support

Can't you tell when the gb will start?

I am waiting for it because I am looking forward to it so much, but the update is not coming up.

Is there a discord channel? I'd appreciate it if you could give me the link.

Have you considered the possibility of making it wireless? I think it would look really clean with no cables! - just like in the renders.

Yeah I think split keyboards look really cool, until there are two cables sticking out of them. But I get wireless don't do well with alu keyboard cases, nothing we can do about it.

Only just came across this and wailed in dismay when I saw

I am planning on running the GB soon (before EOY).

But in a happy accident I haven't! Glad you are taking your time  :cool:
