PooPooPeePee Keyboard Carnival Round Three
AKA P4kcr3. (pronounced however you feel like it)



A warning to the normies,  this post is brought to you by the 40's discord


                                                                                  :( when gh wont let you format youtube videos
IC Form here
                                                                                 

Design

I was inspired to make this keyboard after I modded my minivan case by removing the center 3 standoffs,
this creates a bouncy typing feel under the most centered alphas, which is quite nice.

However it still had hard tray mount feels around the mounting points,
which strangely encroach on the punctuation cluster, this made me hunger for more flex.

The hunger lead me to design the P⁴KCR3, a plateless, gasket mount, milled POM case,
that utilizes the edges of the PCB, and some gorilla gripp’n strips of silicone foam
to produce an extremely bouncy board.

This board mimics and expands on the benefits of the modded tray mount minivan,
while eliminating much of the harshness and inconsistent hard spots.


Whats new

Prototypes have been produced with the following features:
  • Side angles have increased from 90d to 85d, decreasing the slope
  • The top edge fillet has been increased from a 1mm to a 4mm radius





The typing feel is extremely bouncy in the center,
while the mods still retain enough stiffness under them for a solid bottom out.




Pricing and SKU
  • the board will be offered in a white POM top, and brass bottom, both parts will be sandblasted
  • the SKU offered will be chosen based on the options listed in the IC form
  • for the case, and required hardware/gaskets, the price is undetermined.

Big thanks to everyone who commented and filled out the IC today! I'm glad people seem interested in my design.   40 responses in about 30 hours.
couldn't have asked for a better Day 1 of IC   :thumb:

For people who saw the bounce and thought 'thats too much bounce'
under the guidance of da 40's bois, I added some gasket tabs to the center of the base and the center of the PCB
(the PCB ones are half height pads to compensate for the added 2mm distance needed to reach the bottom of the flex well.)

263982-0

This reduces the flex by a good amount, I am also working with Esca to try to implement a plate and confirm compatibility with the getawayvan PCB.

Will this come with a Minivan/Ketch/other PCB or would we need to source that ourselves?

Any info on price or colour options?

the current plan is no on PCBs but I have launched a second IC form to determine what percentage of people need a PCB, as well as other questions, so I am certainly open to it.
Prices are looking to be pretty accurate, I will release final pricing for the POM/brass units closer to when I plan to begin the GB.

Max units for R3 (excluding FE) is 100, if more than 50 people actually want this board

Alright folks, apologies to those waiting for the POM and brass units, but due to my transition to a new manufacturer, I found it prudent to run another round of prototypes. these prototypes are the founders edition, once the founders edition is complete, and people are satisfied with the quality of the boards. I will progress to running the POM and brass units. This will most likely be in 2 months time, thank you for your patience, the PooPooPeePee Keyboard Carnival will come to a town near you soon.

Alright folks, I did the math, theres no reason to wait any longer, the Group buy for P4kcr3 is going live right now! from september 1st, to september 30th, Poo Poo Pee Pee Keyboard Carnival Round three will be available for Group buy in white or black POM tops with brass bottoms. for $235 shipped CONUS.

https://mascisdesigns.bigcartel.com/

Cases and PCBs should both take around 2 months to complete production, then roughtly another 2-3 weeks of shipping to me/QC.

so group buy should deliver around Christmas if everything goes smoothly.

Not worth the time and pain I'd spend making the GH post for the 2 entrants I'd get out of it.
most of this thread is 40's people boosting my post honestly.
