Kyūbi Keyboard Kit
NLandkeys & Krytex Manu & Keygeek& & Bsun & JWICK & Haimu & Huanuo

Hello! I'm Aregs.Here is NLandkeys
This is a short IC that doesn't contain much information, we'll add it later and hope to see your suggestions!

One alu tented Alice keyboard
+ One 75% keyboard
+one pad
+5 type switches(total 500pcs switches)


Clacky:Keygeek switches x 100pcs
Poppy:Bsun switches x 100pcs
Thocky:JWK switches x 100pcs
Tactile:Haimu switches x 100pcs
Silent:Huanuo  switches x 100pcs

It's a total of three keyboard kits with different layouts and 500 switches with different sounds and feel types, for a total of only $219!

Double Weight Design
Now most budget keyboard back are very boring, nothing very bright design, we don't want to compromise on the design for the sake of low price, as you can see, we made a layered treatment in the main body and tail of the nine-tailed fox, so they can realize a lot of surprise combinations, such a nine-tailed fox double-layered weighting is very complicated, we field test, cnc to do such a pattern of time that More than the time to make a top cover, but we still control him in a very low price range, why can we sell them at such a low price? I'll explain it to you at the end, but I can tell you that even though we are so low priced, everything about our craftsmanship is up to par with a single $150+ keyboard

Why are the prices so low?

1. we found a good processing factory called Krytex, the manufacturer of Molly60, and now I've become a part of the factory, so I can get the lowest cost price even for the production of excellent keyboards

2.For Alice, my friends have already seen TypeK's high $750 price, the price is reasonable, the actual measurement down due to the tilt angle, 12kg of aluminum material can be put to use in the end only 2kg or so, which has a very big cost waste, in order to solve the problem, we nearly spent 3willion USD to open a set of forging molds to produce, and then the secondary processing, the cost is greatly reduced, but it's not the same as the cost of the keyboard. Greatly reduce the cost, but will not reduce any standard, forging is not low-cost die-casting, not aluminum extrusion mold, because die-casting mold out of the product can not do anodic oxidation process, and aluminum for tilt alice this is still not suitable!

3. We have prepared a very large amount of material to produce, in order to achieve a large number of orders brought about by the effect of scale

I say all the above to make you understand that this is not a keyboard kit that lowers the standard purely to compress the extreme price, we will send 25 prototypes to review, wait and see!

Just received and tested my steezy60 SMK PCB, works great! Now waiting for my new case and plate to arrive so I can finally build something with my SMK switches! :D
Fun! Please share pics of the build when you are done with it (totally fine if you don't want to), it's always fun to see SMK builds  ;D

I'm so in.
One suggestion is that I think the 1u Alt Gr key looks too cramped on previous sets (including my own lol). Any chance of replacing it with just a second 1u Alt?

Ah yes, was perhaps a oversight on my part... will have an extra 1u 'alt' instead.

If Nordeuk kit doesn't make it, would you be open to adding ISO-UK to base? This is quite common for KKB, I don't think it adds much cost and gets at least for me what I want.

Yes! My original thought is to push for nordeuk sales by putting UK ISO here, but depending on how the IC goes, will either put them in base or consider buying out nordeuk kits.

this post might fall more in line with the "Making Stuff Together" board however.

Hi EdgeOfInfinity, tnx!
About the group to post in: I am interested in feedback, but indeed also open for help if people want to. For instance, I could use some help for a the Japanese keymap.

Wow, ok. Umm hello again! I've returned from the dead lol. GH is telling me that this post is ancient.

Well anyways, I'd love to get this set to market! Starting by seeing if there is enough interest to run this! I've since updated the feedback form, just asking for advice and what kits would you buy. I've got a lot of novelty ideas down since the last feedback form! Many of the ideas are from ya'll! Thank you guys so much for your suggestions and ideas! I very much appreciated it! As for some of those ideas,

- Pink Silhouette of a cats face
- A half broken arrow "Bite za dusto"
- Pointing KQ hand "The tip of his finger can turn anything into a bomb!"
- A silhouette of KQ's shoulder piece
- A cat skull

I'll work on getting some renders once everything is polished out for the novelties! Please fill out the IC form even if you filled out the first one!
