This looks really clean, Im definitely in. I agree with what you are saying about the engraving above the arrow cluster. Personally I think having it on the right side might be the way to go in terms of symmetry but thats without seeing it that way so im not positive. Either way cant wait to see it get to GB

The latest renders look amazing! the weight/bottom piece design really drew me into this one.

I'm on the fence about a symbol/icon above the arrow cluster. If there is enough interest for a symbol/icon, it would be cool to do a poll on a few varieties

I've concluded that there will NOT be a brand-logo on the top. It's possible to see either a clean top or a board-themed engraving.  :thumb:

I worded my post poorly. I meant the engraving, not logo when I said symbol :) Can't wait to see what you decide!

ETA on prototype?

Likely within the next week or two. But there will be several stages. The prototype coming has less extravagant internals and serves mostly to verify mounting, and then will be iterated upon.

Manufacture in China?

Currently yes

This board is beautiful, and I enjoy the changes. I'm excited to see how it develops, and hope to grab one.

Someone had suggested a 'sunset' version of the board, and red-orange-purples would also look lovely on this board. Are we still considering the magnetic badge?

I usually lean towards the more laid-back colors over the super vibrant and eye-catching ones, but I'll keep some in mind. Will consider the badge (not magnetic, it's screwed in from under the top),

What is the current cost of the phase prototype?

I don't think the cost of the Phase / Moment prototype would be a good measure for the Cloudline prototype at this time, as the current Cloudline prototype is ~$200 cheaper but does not include the SS piece. I feel that even including the SS piece, being a flat piece, should still be under the cost of the 60%. To answer your Q, the Phase / Moment prototype is somewhere between $700 and $800.

Maybe instead of a company logo, you could try something cloud/dream related?

Just a bit to show that things are moving...





No internal details, as this was a very early prototype order that did not have my latest internal design. No PCB yet. Also, leaf springs will need some work - essentially what I've got here ATM is top-mount, which I really don't mind.

No internals, as this was an earlier prototype ordered before my latest revisions. Next time... but here is another angle of the external weight..

Update January 27th, 2021

Hello everyone I hope the new year is going well. This project is still moving behind the scenes.

Some adjustments were made, and another prototype was ordered. I have also been making progress on things such as working with a potential custom PCB designer (they do great work!), potential vendors, etc. I am also considering the overall state of the keyboard market and my personal bias in my decision for unit count - that will be discussed with vendors when I get the chance. And I'll be negotiating with vendors on that as well when it comes up.

Here is the updated engraving. There were requests for something similar to the Whale with its smooth, flowing lines and freeform aesthetic. While I love the engraving on the Whale, I felt that the smooth and flowing feel would not be a match with the bottom engraving - boxy, uniform, organized, strict design language. I also realized that the initial issue with my first proposed cloud engraving was not because it was centered (like I initially thought), but that it was centered and the edges perfectly aligned with the edges of the arrow cluster.

Updated Engraving
