Can you make it so that both the caps and legends are the same color blue?

Monochrome Update

Updated kits

Core Kit

Here is what change:
  • we added a 2u R4 shift key;
  • we added a 1u R4 FN key;
  • we changed the R4 shift to icon only; and
  • we changed the icon on the capslock key to the one used in GMK 9009 R2.

Extra Kit

I am an artisan lovers, and we decided we would keep the artisans.

  • Alphakeycaps is on board and there will be a raffle for his Jedi Blinker. We will produce around 10 of those and they will be raffled between GB participants; and
  • RAMA offered to produce this beauty. This is a black anodised X or O keycap with laser edged white stars (subtle but stunning). Those will go for the usual price for RAMA keycaps, so $36 for US/Asia and 42 for EU (big thanks to RAMA for keeping the price low for us <3 I owe you one!) and have a MOQ of 50. Everyone can buy them and everyone can buy as many as they want.


  • has been confirmed for Europe, ;
  • We are still in discussion with vendors for the States and Canada; and
  • zFrontier would be our vendor for Asia, Africa, Australia and New Zealand, though we are still waiting for a confirmation.

Thanks for reading guys!

The PCB is almost the same with Mars 8.0 final version PCB. It was revised three times. Now it supports WKL, ANSI, ISO, and 86 keys layouts.

1916 will be made by the same factory as Mars 8.0. I think all the Mars 8.0 buyers have witnessed the quality they can make.

BTW, A camou prototype is being anodized.

I had a lot of issues with the build quality on the Mars 8.0 - specifically the threaded holes keeping the two halves together. I think using m2.5 thread was a problem, the threads stipped on a few of the holes. I ended up having to re-drill the holes to a more appropriate screw size. If they had been an M3 or M4 it would have been better.

The brass weight is going to need to be re-finished as well. Overall very rough, the Mars 8.0

Also the spacer / diffuser included with the Mars 8.0 snapped as soon as I looked at it.

What is the deal with the electroplated brass weight in this new model?

Looks like there's no room between the switch and the PCB. Fortunately there is still room between the two keys so the keycaps don't hit. Just wanted to let you know about it  :)
Yep, thanks for sharing. I'll triple check anyway.

Can't wait  :D

Please also make sure the Backspace arrow is big enough, unlike with epbt 9009

I think the intention is to use the X for backspace and not the arrow however it's a little inconclusive as the layout differs from the renders.

It will be an arrow for the usual backspace and box arrow for the hhkb backspace. The small arrow was the first thing I fixed but I have also tweaked all the arrow legends to be slightly more pointy.

Just received mine today! super excited - but didn't realize I may have accidentally ordered an ISO layout. I selected Layout 3 when choosing in the GB form.

Does anyone have list of available templates from the ordering options? Just wanting to know if I was sent the wrong layout or selected the wrong layout.

I had everything soldered before being sent to me, but looks like i'll have to swap around the enter key.

Yeah I definitely ordered the wrong layout somehow.

What's the difficultly level to remove & re-solder switches? I've soldered a few things, but never on a keyboard.

Not hard, are you on a budget or not? (for soldering/desoldering equipment)

Also, are these leds soldered or sipsocketed? 
C , have you heard from EVE at all as of yet for a timeline on getting the replacement parts for the black/silver boards?
