[IC] DSA BlueBird
« on: Mon, 25 January 2021, 16:32:16 »


Hi, I'm 99 from Pitta studio. In the last year, we posted an IC for the low-profile switch keyboard Pitta60.
While we're still working on that project, we also designed a DSA profile keyset for it. We call it BlueBird.
Surprisingly, many people in the Chinese keyboard community want to get the keyset only without the keyboard.
We reached out to a keycap manufacturer to make it happen.
The first batch of DSA Bluebird has been sold out in China.
Now we want to see if there are any interests here as well.

Information:
  • Profile: DSA
  • Material: PBT
  • Legends: Dye-sublimation
  • Compatibility: Designed for 60%-65% keyboards
  • Price: Around $80
  • Layout:

Thanks for reading!

Edit:

These sets have already been made. They will be shipped to KBDfans 's warehouse very soon then KBDfans will ship them out to you before CNY.

Damn!

I don't normally care too much for DSA, but this is hella clean.

We've finished the prototype a long time ago but we noticed a small issue that the LDO regulator is a little too warm when all of the RGB leds are on. It's not a big problem but we want it to be perfect.

Are you planning on extending the set with additional ISO support for the new GB, or will you just be producing more of the existing set?

So it was successful in China, but you want to now bring this set to the occidental market? Not sure what the IC is about if it's already a successful set.

We will consider making add-on kits for it.
We fronted the money for the manufacturing of the first batch caps so the buyers don’t suffer from waiting.
Though we didn't haven enough funds for making it as a very large keyset in the first place.

It was well received in the Chinese keyboard community but we didn’t know how well it looks to westerners especially the font and legends.

I like this set very much already and I bought it too.
Would like to see more Keys for it - internationals and F Keys for example.

@Pitta, what colour is the blue? I’m trying to find a good case to pair these up with and love the design of the MelGeek Mojo 60, just not sure if I should go with anodized black, E-White, E-Yellow, or their Robin’s Egg Blue?
