KAT SPACE DUST

【MISSION DIRECTIVES】
Welcome Space Cadet!
You are invited to the launch of a keycap set that was brought together by cosmic forces and a shared passion of the aesthetic of the limitless aether, for a peculiar community interested in the design of advanced instruments that are finely calibrated for optimal thocking (keebs).
Space exploration is the pinnacle of mankind’s scientific and technological innovation; however it often springs from a universal child-like curiosity of the unfathomable heavens.
This design aims to celebrate this playful spirit, whilst incorporating the intoxicating indigo hues of interstellar space dust. There is something eternally entrancing and enigmatic about the beauty of interstellar dust and nebulae, and we hope we have captured some of that magic in this set.

Your mission objective, if you choose to accept it, is to procure the modules that will enhance the specialised equipment at your command.

Good luck and Godspeed!
Your captains, Pseudoalpaca & BobaSweatandTears-END TRANSMISSION-

※ Swishy - Our favourite Space Cadet. Out-of-the-world enthusiasm, tips, and guidance
※ QQMBR & Alex at Zf - Stellar friendliness and invaluable advice for beginners
※ Konstantin & NoPunin10ded - Kitting Scientists - foundation was inspired by Konstantin's heavy input on other KAT sets, with further evolution on comprehensive coverage inspired by NoPunin10ded's KAT Napoleonic

Original IC thread: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=107942 (Pseudoalpaca will be locking it)

GB date launch was staggered due to timezones and public holidays, but we did reach the intended MOQ of 54k total units within the first 36 hrs (possible earlier) from just NA and EU sales alone!

Dvorcal will be kindly posting updates on GB sales with his awesome graphs.
Here's the result for day 3/4 with various vendors still yet to update numbers:


These aren't official renders, but Kairyu, a member of our discord server community did some mock ups of the various configurations available:
