Cannot wait for this. Copped GLITCH with a black pcb and that psychedelic deskmat. One of the most unique designs I've seen around here, was a must-buy for me.

 I got the Frost keyboard and keycaps. Looking forward to receiving these. The design of this keyboard had me immediately. I'm very much a fan of the TKL format.

Wishing you success in this endeavor.

Do you happen to know the dimensions and the weight of this keyboard? And what about the angle of tilt on the keyboard? Seems weird that none of these things would be included :/

Not a TKL form factor person; however, my husband is.

Merry Christmas to him, lmao.

Snagged Glitch w/ the Ultra PCB. Super stoked!

Oh man, oh man, oh man...

So my little Core 40 bit the dust a couple days ago when my 1-Year Old decided to see how far he could throw it, so I'm in the market for a replacement board anyway. Was looking for a nice open-component & compact-ish build, but this'll do.

As it just so happens, I also grabbed a small handful of KAT Cyberspace sets just last month ... 🙃

It was meant to be...

Is there any way to have an extra Silicone PCB Mount Sheet, so that you can easily swap in the Top layers with the matching PCB?

The only thing Iím undecided on is the PCB to go with frost. I already have a white Mysterium so I was thinking the black ultra for a bit of contrast. Iím having trouble visualizing it though and I donít want to throw off the vibe as it seems you guys color matched throat/white . Any chance of further renders?

Excited for this! Hoping either GMK Wavez or Nuclear Data will match the Glitch nicely, but we'll see.

Is no LED support confirmed for solder ultra PCB? Was hoping to do UV LED + nightwalker switches.
