I really love this. Any chance that there will be a teal option like in some of your early insta posts?

That first render was the teal that I was looking for, but didn't come out as expected at all! Teal is very difficult to get right, so it will be replaced with a navy!

Wdym by  "Inspired by Material" Lol     You don't need to be inspired by them, you can just say " I wanted to make a good keyboard out of these materials"

Most keyboard designs have weird and wonderful weights, but are only ever on the bottom of the board- which is never seen! I wanted to find a way to show various materials in an exciting way. For example, the weight shows on the side, the bottom piece is visible from the back and the plate can be visible through the polycarb top. A lot of what draws people to this hobby has to do with the material that is used, so I thought that displaying those materials is a great way to give appreciation to them!

Hope that answers the question a little better :)

I really think that the idea to add something that expands on the project like your comic idea is gangbusters fantastic! I instantly want to know more and will be watching this project!  :thumb:

I really appreciate your EXACT choice of words! Couldn't have said it better myself!

Absolutely love this.
Another vote for hotswap PCB here though.  This is an essential basic requirement for any commitment to a GB nowadays.

Nice. RGB with that polycarbonate case would look so good.

Props on the design, it really is a beautiful board! (PC got me drooling)
I'll be all over this if there's a hotswap version.

Any chance for multiple polycarb colors? Something like a smoke or darker tint?

I had been kicking myself recently for passing on a different 65% polycarbonate board because I didn't love everything about it. It's like you're a mind reader, and this design is very much more my taste. This looks very promising, and I look forward to it's development. Hopefully I'll end up with a good 65% PC board after all.

Right now I'm trying to keep different colour options to a minimum to reduce the cost, so this run will only have a clear sandblasted polycarb option!

Great looking board, this is basically my favorite layout.

There isn't anything I would change, so I can't really give any comment.

Except I hope you will offer some interesting colors.
Nothing wrong with black, white, silver, navy or PC. But I like when a board has at least 1 or 2 more unusual colors.
Like a nice shade of light green, lilac or teal could be fun for example.

The interesting colours will most likely come in the form of plates, to make the poly variant even more exciting! There may be another run in the future with brand new colours, but that is a long way off

I love the wide bezel, personally. Not a huge fan of the acute angle on the back of the top (on top of the back?) of the board, but thatís definitely a me problem. Iíd love some dyed polycarb options too, but all this hotswap talk is probably more practical in terms of appeal. :))

I may have to pick up more than one knob, depending on what shade of navy that is.

Thank you! Hotswap is definitely happening! I just need to figure out what options there are in terms of layout.

Dyed poly options may come in the future, but not for this run sadly.

Thank you! Busy working on files for R2 prototypes, and a new weight engraving! The development is moving smoothly and I'm very excited to announce the new changes!

The thing about I love about this the most is the PC Case.
But what if the leaf-spring plate could also be PC? Hmmm.

Thank you! The PC plate with leaf spring will be VERY bouncy, and won't take much force to bottom out and have the bottom of the PCB touch the case. I will work on a few variations to find what I'm happiest with!

To me, all recent IC's in 65 percent keyboards seems to be absolutely similar. Yours is outstanding, hope to join GB!

Thanks for taking the time to explain this to me, still keeping an eye on the IC.

Thank you! It is very difficult to stand out against other 65%'s, so this means a lot!

Even if I've been following this project for some time now, I just realized I may have missed filling the IC. I'm really hoping for a hotswap version.
