The sleek design and typing angle make this keyboard such a beauty, love the wine red colour. Just curious but is there a special reason why you chose those three colours specifically over others?

No special reason, I just like those colours man. Was originally debating between an older kustom-esque red and this, but a few friends convinced me to do wine red. I think it was the right choice.

Also just a general update:

Looking to order the proto next week. Sorry for the slight delay - we've been waiting for a couple different o-rings to ship to us here in the UK. Once I've tested them in the proto I have on hand right now and decided which to go for, we'll go ahead and order the next prototype. It will be black, and I've asked for an anodisation sample of the navy I want to do at the same time.

Hello all,

The second prototype has been ordered. It will be aluminium 6063, anodised black, have a brass plate, and be mine.

There are a number of changes between first prototype and what hopefully will be the design used in the GB, which I'll roughly disclose here for the sake of transparency:

- plate external radius increased marginally (may add some additional cuts to this too before ordering a bit more locally)
- front height lowered marginally
- USB height raised even more marginally
- cable routing changed slightly into having two levels
- added some engraving beneath the weight
- internal top chamfer decreased
- USB hole chamfer decreased
- bottom chamfer increased to be consistent with the top
- gasket mounting points changed

Regarding the last change, the previous mounting points led to some problems with the 50A o-ring towards the top-left and top-right corners, as the points in those corners were significantly further away from the left/right case edges than the ones on the bottom. I discussed this with Elaine and she kindly let me use the Unikorn's mounting points as well as giving some very valuable design advice which I am very grateful for.

Anyway, here are some CAD images of the updated design (I've added these in the original post as well):





See you all in November tentatively with the next prototype and hopefully some good news regarding a GB.

Hey, I really like the design! My only reservation is that the Isla logo looks a bit... phallic?

OP did say it's name was based on a childhood friend... Perhaps this is an homage to that friend haha. All jokes aside I wanted to ask if there's a possibility of half plate, I want a flexy baby, nothing too stiff... like that logo.

Not sure how I let this IC pass by; love the layout capabilities, chamfering, and unique typing angle.

Very interested in this. Will be eager to hear about pricing and shipping charges to the States.

This is probably a stupid question, but will the pcb fall out of the keyboard gets flipped over using the gasket mount?

not a stupid question - the fit with the o-ring is tight and the friction of the rubber against the case keeps it in

also the weight won't be changing lmao

I really like the low key, clean and elegant look of this board. This might be my first higher end case provided I can get in on it, love low angle boards too.

Any chance we can get more pics of the assembly process or an "exploded view" per say of the prototype?

I can for sure try something like this for the next prototype - Iíve actually just gotten a manu pic of it this morning, as itís finished anodising.

As a general update, itís been slightly delayed as this is really the 3rd prototype now, since the 2nd one had some issues that were only discovered before anodising. Weíre hoping to have the new prototype early next week, and once itís built I can try make either a very comprehensive album or a video illustrating how to put the board together.
