Based project, based specs, based PCBs by a based PCB designer, based case design everything promoted by a SUER DUPER BASED designer.

What's not to like about this project, given also that the not cash-grabbing price and the fact that proceedings will go towards a good cause, especially important in the current moment.

Really appreciate that this project is driven by passion and aims to bring a good experience to the user.

Did I already said this is based?  ;D

I might just have to get a 10u spacebar for this build

GL with GB! Looks great and love that it'll be able to source parts after GB  :cool: Sustainability/longevity of the keeb should be considered in all GBs imo.

I typed on Daal and it was good  Reminded me of vintage cherry board and    Felt better than IDB along with better finishing.  It also looks much better than idb. 
And there is the treeleaf cowering behind a rock as his tormentors approach

no way a keyboard made to not look like a brick and not designed to cost as little as possible looks better than idb??

I have received 3 more prototypes since the last update including a PC and aluminum version of the final design. Here is a picture showing the evolution of the side profile (rightmost is latest/final).



Unfortunately the design doesn't lend itself well to PC due to the amount of compression needed to compress the 75a o-ring. I am currently waiting on what will hopefully be the last prototype and then will order production units immediately afterwards.



Lightning has received and will be streaming one of the 3rd revision prototypes with Gateron X switches soon.

What length wire is supported for 10u? Wanna see if I have the correct length or if I must source.

7u and 8u wires will both supported to support both DCS 10u molds. I will be ordering production PCBs this week and will be hopefully be able to show what 10u looks like on the board later this month. This is the production PCB with maybe some small silkscreen changes but otherwise finalized.




Biggest changes are:
- added extra diodes on PCB
- added another indicator on the "Escape" key to be used as a layer indicator

To clarify on the indicators

The CapsLock LED will be used as a regular caps lock indicator. (On when caps is enabled)
The Esc LED will be used as a layer indicator. (On when on layer 1)

Green 3mm LEDs will be included

This keyboard is looking really good! One minor thing, would it be possible to move the DB back a bit so you can add a recessed area around the USB-C port so the cable looks a bit cleaner from the top?

This is what I'm talking about:


Here's how the Kei does it for reference:

Production units have already been ordered and this is not something I am going to change at this point. I prioritized the board looking cleaner from the back unplugged than looking from the top down plugged. :thumb:

I typed on the polycarbonate clear unit and the aluminum production prototype, and they were both great. I preferred the 75a harder o ring on the pcb. I trust My Frogger.  if he does not fulfill the in stock   I will go to his house and steal all of the daals and Raals

Love the design of this board, the proportions are just perfect to my eye.

The decision to open source it is also commendable. Looking forward to trying to buy one!

Hey ya’ll! Just a small update!

Production has started on the cases:
- Ordered 25 HHKB and 25 WKL cases at the end of last month
- My manufacturer has just started machining on them as of this week
- Carrying cases and microfiber clothes will be ordered slightly before production is finished

Production PCBs have arrived:
- These include 10u support, extra diodes, and another indicator LED spot on the ESC key
- Have tested these with some Cherry and JWK switches I have on hand which all both fit snuggly
- Fixing some small firmware issues before I flash, test, and package all of these
- Photos will be updated on original post shortly

Sales format has been decided:
- Will be utilizing a raffle instead of FCFS due to the limited number of units left after FnF units
- More details will be announced once finalized

Finally:
More
I happy someone trying to do something differnt with a good target price of $280 in-stock buy. This looks like a plateless mount using a o-ring around each of the 4 pcb tabs for flex as such this is not a true o-ring mount just because the design use a o-ring does not make it a o-ring mount (i.e. a burger mount use small o-rings around the screw but cannot be called o-ring either). Please change the title of your ic for currently calling this a o-ring mount does a disservice to keyboard community and other great designs that are true o-ring mount which suspend the pcb all the way around providing the the flex GLWIC.



Happy Halloween!  ;D

Any info about the "unifried" daughterboard? Looks like a nicer design than the C3 daughterboard.
