[IC] Bloop65 - Plateless 65% Keyboard
« on: Sat, 02 January 2021, 16:01:07 »
Bloop65

Group buy now closed. Thanks for your support everyone.



Hey all. I am sharing a project that I have been working on for the better part of 2020, the Bloop65.

The Bloop is a plateless 65% keyboard with mounting inspired by the idb60. The PCB's mounting points rest on o-rings to provide an even more cushioned and flexible bottom out. The design is kept simple and clean to keep costs down.

Please fill out the interest check form and leave your feedback! I would love to know what you want to see.

I will be providing updates through my discord server throughout this project.

Details and Specs:
Front Height: 18.5mm, not including feet
Angle: 5 degrees
Tops Available: WKL, WK
Colors: Blue, Rose Gold, Silver, Black (fill out IC form to suggest other colors)
Target Price: $280 shipped CONUS
Target Quantity: 20-30 units
PCB: Powered by QMK, see layouts below



There is a gap next to the alt key on the above prototype that is visible in the pictures. This was an issue with this prototype in particular and will not be reflected in the final model.

Yes please <3

I really appreciate how you did prototypes and prototyped each anode colour first.

Hello, this is treeleaf.
As someone who has been tracking the keyboard from its inception, I am excited, to say the least.
IDB was a cheap and good option. I am a fan of cheap and good. I think this design will be a good variant without the issues of IDB (such as highly visible seams)
The price is reasonable for the number of units, and what you are getting with the kit.

The only thing I don't like is the blocker, but that is preference. Ideally I would appreciate a blockered version, but I know that top right blocker is the community favorite meme atm   :p
May display immature behavior
May talk in third person
Does not understand simple things (Treeleaf moment)
