Any news on this mate?

Working hard behind the scenes. I have to figure out the PCB before I can finalize a few design choices. I'm still looking into USB-C options, as well as considering Mini-USB. I actually just received word that one of my PCB samples was put in the mail today. I'll be sure to give an update once I've made some headway.

No worries, glad to hear it. Didn't mean to pester/rush you, just wanted to make sure it hadn't been abandoned =]

Absolutely! I'm glad to get inquiries—makes me confident people are interested!

I really like this design. I just wish you would strongly consider Mini-USB. USB-C seems to be inviting problems when the only solution it provides over Mini-USB is guaranteeing people will have spare cables in the future.

By next year, almost every custom keyboard coming out will have USB-C. Not to mention most phones and computers will have it to. There are many benefits to it and there won't be any shortage of cables.

this is tight. have you thought about sharpening up the front corners to a similar radius as the back? that anodized in black would be mean as hell.

Do you know what controller you are gonna use on the PCB? Is it planned to be programmable? Would be great if this could be supported with QMK I'd be totally in for getting one if that was the case!

I won't even think of releasing this until we have a solid PCB design that supports QMK. I know of a few people prototyping 65% USB-C PCBs right now, so I'm trying to hold out for someone to partner with. I've also been teaching myself the ins and outs of PCB design in case I have to design it myself. Hold steady, it might be awhile before I can think about running the GB, but we'll get it done one way or another.

Pumped for this. Hopefully it is not too pricey. It looks amazing :).

It will only be offered in this color correct? Just out of curiosity.

I haven't gotten any quotes yet, but I'd like it to be offered in at least a few colors. Similar to the iPhone finishes at least.

I love the design, but, I think you are missing a trick here. I'd put a blanking plate on the back that can have ports, so you can mount either a nano comp 80's style, a usb hub, or a powerbank that can charge through USB-C under the wrist rest. It's space begging to be used. If you don't want to develop it into a full product, powerbank being the easiest, I guess; just offer an aluminum insert for the rear + an easily dremmel'd mild steel / acrylic plate and some screw mount points to which you can attach user's own project's ports. Plus, leave some mounting offsets under the wrist rest.

I love my Royal Glam wooden case with built in wrist rest, but starting to miss my arrow keys. Definitely interested in something like this though! God damn.

I'm assuming the whole thing will be heavy enough to prevent wobble if you're mashing Esc?

There shouldn't be any problems with 'wobble' when pressing anything on the top row. I'll be getting a prototype as soon as the PCB is done, and I'll be sure to do some extensive testing.

Jesus it's gorgeous. I might be able to resist for most colours but if it happened to be available in red I'm afraid my wallet might bite the dust.

But that's what makes this interesting.  Why ask to take it away?

I have serious trouble discerning whether that post was a joke or not. If it is, I commend your impeccable sense of irony.

As for the wristrest, I find the prospect of the laptop-like feeling of it quite interesting, and it would be a very nice slab to showcase my degeneracy personality on. Not to mention the wedge shape is super attractive.
