I am also looking for this keyboard: alice style + sold in EU + Gasket mount + decent price should a very good combination.

However, I am also very concerned with this project and GB, 1 day from the group by and no info is available (units, time, what extras are available - wrist rest, plates, pcb, etc.).
Hence it is understandable the team is working really hard, and building a keyboard is not an easy task. However, some additional respect (therefore transparency) for the people interested would be appreciated.

Hope more info gets available.
Time is being scheduled, right now and will not be revealed til the actual day of the GB. Like we mentioned on the other comment, everything you are requesting has been discussed above.
But to answer your question: 250 units, no time yet, you will be able to add extra plates and pcbs to your order, no wrist rest in the GB.

Why are you withholding the sale time 24hrs in advance? How are people from different time zones supposed to plan for that?


Also your layout shows 4 macros while the proto only has 3

Alright alright, it's here everyone! The preview video can be found here
Now for some updates. For starters regarding the colors the deep grey will most likely be removed for simplicities sake, at least for this round.
Here are some samples of the red and blue:
Show Image


And here are some samples of the brass:
Show Image


Finally regarding the sale, the time will be announced soon. Thank you everyone for your patience with this project! It's almost time!!!

Is the deep purple color still running? Are there samples of that color?
We don't have anodization samples just yet but we are matching it to PANTONE  20-0120 TPM Rose Onyx
of which we have a pantone sample (it is the one on the left)

Can you provide us with all the available options and their corresponding price before the start of the actual GB?

This makes it much easier to make a decision without stressing out once the GB itself has started.

Ah sorry about that, Nasu only has 3 macros but everything else is the same. Standard alice layout.
As far as the time goes, you have a point. We'll post it along with all the other info in the main post tonight.

By main post we mean the top post of the IC page (the one with all the info, renders, etc etc). So yes like you mentioned the the first post on the first page of the thread.

It has the leaf spring plate. The only plate that doesn't have the leaf spring is the POM. We felt that the flex provided by the leaf spring really complimented the metal plates. If you want a non real spring alu plate there will be files available after the GB so you can cut your own.

It's Oct 7th for the GB time? Better to have a countdown (like https://www.timeanddate.com/countdown/create) to reduce confusion on the timezone stuff.

No the sale is today. The date is formated like dd/mm/yy.. But yes we'll make one of those countdowns and attach it to the post. Thank you for the suggestion!

Sorry for coming off like an ass hat here. Something's off with your timer?
Info states 20.00 hours GMT.
Current GMT time is 09.07 hours, your countdown shows 09hours 53min to go. Doesn't quite add up or am i wrong?
I'm missing an hour either in the countdown or the sale info provided. Or am i completely off track?

The info states GMT+1, so basically UK time. Right now it's 10;56pm UK time (GMT+1). The GB is at 20:00pm UK time, so in 9 hours.

I'm afraid the payment will have to happen right away since it's FCFS. However there are 250 units available so there might still be some left by Monday.

The sale will be rescheduled to 15:00 GMT+1

We're terribly sorry for this, Keebwerk will be working tirelessly to figure this out.

Based on the comments, no hotswap version will be available. Is this correct?
Lastly, will any foam, or other included on the packaging (case and pcb-plate foam)?

Thank you, and once more looking forward for tomorrow's GB.

Yes, the pcb is solder only. And we will be cutting some custom pieces of EVA foam, but only for the case. So no foam in between the plate and pcb.

Good question. think the millmax sockets are 100pct the best result if you get them right. Way better longevity and tighter hold than kailh hot swap.

We haven't tested mil max, nor are we planning to. The pcb is solder only, you can try using the sockets but at your own risk.
