[IC] The Manly Unicorn
« on: Wed, 10 September 2014, 21:18:09 »
This started out as a bit of fun after a long and stressful day at work and morphed into something fun and ridiculous, like Handerbeit meets a 5 year old girl.  This set is for those men out there who want to express their masculinity and those women who are confident in their femininity.   It's meant to be a serious set for serious people.  After all, nothing is more serious or manly than a unicorn.




Onto the details.  This is planning on being a two part set, the bare bones what you need for a full keyboard or smaller, and what I'm calling the "just shut up and buy it already" kit.  There is the possibility to add more caps to the latter, but the former is to keep it cheap and try and hit the MOQ since GMK MOQs are quite large. 

The base set consists of your standard mods, alphas, function row, and numpad and various Esc keys (one of which Ivan has done in the past).

The "just shut up and buy it already" kit consists of the following:
- Alpha matched WASD cluster and Purple on Yellow WASD cluster
- Stepped Caps Lock
- Modifier matched stepped and full-touch Caps Lock, Scroll Lock, Num Lock, Backspace, and Arrow Cluster
- 1.5x Ctrl and Alt caps
- Matched 1x caps in bottom row profile for Winkey and G80-1800, 0, 00, +, and - for G80-1800
- Mod matched 6.25x and 7x Space Bar
- Green and Purple 7x Space Bar
- 1.75x Shift
- 1.75x Ctrl cap in the same profile as Caps Lock, in Mod matched and Green (Green to be added to the mock up later)
- Symmetry `~ and \| keys
- 1x R4 FN (forgot 1.5x R2 Delete and 1x R1 \| for HHKB layout, should I add them?)
- Basic ISO kit with ISO Enter, 1.25x Shift, R4 \|, and R3 #~ and @, can be changed to blanks if that is preferred


126253-0

If anyone could render a better mockup, I'd be very grateful.


The planned colors are:
- Cyan (UN6037)
- Purple (UN5046)
- Yellow (CV)
- Green (AE)
- Magenta (UN33656)






I'll be getting an IC sheet up soon, but if you have any input, let me know.

Can you add a green Control key in place of the Caps Lock key as an extra?

I can add it on as an extra, not necessarily as an instead.  I may cull the kit a little at some point though, depending on the numbers looking to buy the kit and who needs what.  If the numbers are low and making it cheaper may increase numbers closer to the MOQ, I might go that route even though it will hurt others.

I don't since I wanted to gauge interest and see what changes might need to be made before getting a price quote from GMK.  Based on prior pricing of GMK sets, I'd expect $90-120 for the base (depending if price goes up with additional colors) and probably $30-50 for the add on pack with an MOQ of 250

Not a fan but good luck!
It's a good width!  If it's half-width it's too narrow, and full-width is too wide.

A) Unicorns are bottom tier mythical creatures. Just a horse with a horn, lame.
B) Those colors could not be further away from anything remotely manly. Just because you call it something doesn't make it not look like the color scheme to a six year old's Hello Kitty Trapper Keeper.
C) I mean, they are just occurally offensive and jarring colors. Never thought there would be something uglier than Miami, but here it is!

For what it counts, good luck with the IC. I can't wait to see them on peoples boards and silently judge them from a dark room thousands of miles away from where they are.

I'm always rooting for GMK buys to meet MOQ but I don't see this having a hope in hell if Feng can't even get 50 orders for the Cyan mods.

Nor do I, but I was asked to run this as a GMK IC.  If it doesn't hit, it will be redone as SP.

Oh so its GMK? im in for whatever full set is from GMK, btw can we get one more Esc key in green color so we can have 5 Esc keys in total? 1 to be used as the standard and the other 4 can be used for above the number pad 4 keys for Trikx ,Ducky,Vortex boards etc etc etc?

1 extra Esc key shouldn't play huge role price wise and we are missing the green key after all, just decision is needed what color the legend will be.

EDIT: Nubbinator if this one doesn't go trough, are you willing to try and run IC for the Handerbeit set?

You might find it extremely hard to tip in any GMK order because of the high MOQ that's required.  Not trying to be rude here but I don't think you'll get a huge avalanche of orders for these colours, unless the person buying is colour blind  8) .

Now if this was done solely in SA Profile at SP, then it might tip easily because like a rampant crack wh0re I'll be all over this set  :thumb: .

I'm in for GMK just for the purple alphas. It is a very bold set for GMK though so I have my doubts about meeting MOQ.

Would love to see it happen though!

Right?  Whhat's life without levity.  I do realize it's a tough sell, but it's supposed to be fun.  If I can make it happen, there will be Lisa Frank wrapping paper (if I can find it) and manly unicorn stickers.

Elrick, if it goes SP, it will be DCS.  I know you love SA, but I don't amd the set would be like clown shoes in SA.

And GMK is tough, but if you don't try, you'lll never succeed.  If Miami could hit 200, I have hopes this can too.

As stated in the OP:

If anyone could render a better mockup, I'd be very grateful.

As I have said before, I am very limited in the tools available to me, so I cannot make super high res mock ups or renders, but would be grateful for any assistance making higher res mockups.  Pointing out that which has already been acknowledged is not in any way helpful.


Elrick, if it goes SP, it will be DCS.  I know you love SA, but I don't amd the set would be like clown shoes in SA.

DCS...fuuuuu. :(  Fingers crossed so hard for GMK.

Yeah, I'm not the biggest DCS fan, but it wouldn't work with DSA and it would look like clown shoes with SA, not to mention the fact that I hate SA.

The only other option would be to try and get it done in the Devlin QS series since I want doubleshots, but that would mean we'd have to ghetto up the space bars with a different profile.  It would also mean working with a middle man, QWER, instead of directly with the manufacturer, and there may be increased color limitations.  I would prefer Devlin to SP since I think their caps are higher quality, but it would be tougher to do and I'm not sure of their MOQ or pricing.

Why is there no rainbow stripe down the home row?

Whoa, whoa, we can't get too crazy here.  I'm not 100% sure what you're envisioning with that though.

AMAZING MS PAINT SKILLZ AWAY!!!!!

I know the set is out there, but that's a little much for me. 

That said, if it is something enough people speak up about and want, I can look at adding it to the other pack(s)

I think I suggested in the IC form to maybe swap the yellow WASD to the "just shut up and buy it already" kit.  I'd prefer the alpha-matched WASD but then the base set has no yellow save for the ESC soooo...

As I walk away thoroughly depressed at this not being made in SA Profile but the dreaded DCS (real cheapo, early 90's rubber-dome style of key-set design, easily bought for children down at Kmart).

Just thought someone would at least go to GMK with an OFFICIAL  Handerbeit set for manufacture.  That is the ONLY rainbow set worth buying on this planet  :'( .

Sorry nubbs for cocking my leg up and pissing over your design perscription here because I always wanted a  Handerbeit set and yet NO ONE is going to provide here on Geekhack.  I thought you would be the FIRST one here taking this to GMK for full manufacture, please reconsider your design to include a full  Handerbeit Set instead?

Nothing's stopping you from running your own Handerbeit buy Elrick. This is an idea I was playing around with and thought would be fun.  Yes, it's practically a '90s Lisa Frank theme, but it's supposed to be ridiculous and fun.  Personally, I hate Handerbeit.  This was a fun theme that I wanted to see if there's a chance could be done, even though I have my doubts.

Screw the haters.  I love this and will support it if it's GMK.  If it's SP, I will have to reconsider based on how I feel that day.

Thanks Hoff.  That said, I am completely open to constructive criticism.

I'm hoping to hit the GMK MOQ.  Right now I have 25 kits spoken for in the form since it went live and that's missing some from the thread who have said they'd be in for a set.  I really would like it to be GMK too.  I'll try and get some pics this weekend of GMK colors and one of the colorways that was done with an Esc cap so that people can get a better idea.

Next time I will clearly explain that I'm being sarcastic, because I actually like the idea.
