[IC] KKB Dolch Neo | R0, R5 in base, & big keys!

(1/10) > >>

It's Dolch baby!

DISCORD IC FORM


This is a retro-inspired modern refresh of the classic dolch colorway, but not modern dolch.
I am hoping to make this with KKB, as I am a big fan of their keycaps, and imo they need a dolch set.

But a cool one, so this has R0 & R5 baked in, and the translucent keys as part of the "neo" line.

Kitting will be simple - base for everything 90% of the people will need, and an extension kit for the rest. Additional offerings include R0 kits for WOB and Beige(L9/U9), as well as UK and Norde kits.

WOB and Beige R0 kits



 
OH, and I heard KKB might be making these... ;D
I will make these in other colors as well (WOB and beige probably)



 
Cheeky little artisan I made! If this goes through, will be a collab with aiglatson. This is inspired by the original dolch keyboard!

Aiming for
- $90 for Base kit
- $20 for Extension kit
- $20 for Nordeuk kit
- $20 for R0 kits
New molds will be made for the R0 kit, hence the price increase as compared to Skidata neo.

Rhienfo:
Wow this great, dolch very nice choice, alongside those translucent accents, r0 is a great addition and love how extensive the kits/kitting is (even if 1.5u supers aren't in base kit but like I talk about that way too much lol)

Needs anime girl deskmat other wise it's not a truly based project though... GLWIC

Thebloodyez:
Nice Another Masje banger GLWIC  :p

Gtour:
I like this ''neo'' series that you are doing, masje.

Some suggestions I have, looking at the kitting:
- I would change Print to PrtSc and 1.50U <-Back to Backspace.
- Consider adding R5 1U Ctrl.
- Add two R5 1U Alt somewhere for true HHKB compatibility.
- Windowed keys and stepped 1.75U Control would be nice.
- I don't know how I feel about the forced translucent accents, but maybe it's the right move. I would add an accented R1 Esc as well.
- Numpad Enter is text only, maybe change it to Icon+Text.

It's cool that now KKB is doing R0 molds. GLWIC
