I am so happy that the GB doesn't start until January, then I have time to save up. This looks absolutely amazing and I think the LED ears is a fantastic idea!

is the cat face a cover that goes over the keyboard? or is it on the bottom of the keyboard?

personally I like the idea of a cover to 1. make the design more visible and 2. to protect against dust and such when not in use

Could it be an angle less than 7 degrees?  To improve typing ergonomics and I believe it would help the shape achieve the overall vision of the board.  :)

Is the back of the keyboard.

Cover with a cat face is also a good idea, but have to think about how to make the sideface, cause it's curved. Bending (like acryl kebb cover) seems not possible. Another options are molding and cnc'ing, but then the production cost will be expensive.

Let me see if there is a way to make the cover easy and cheap.

Any chance for the black and gray to come with pink acrylic  ear inserts? That would go great with the GMK Pono I preordered  ;)

No for both questions. You have to choose between face or butt. Or you can buy both. Hmmm, but I will consider to sell  the bottom case only as an option(have to talk with the company and cnc factory first).

edit: Do you think it would be possible to see this rendered with some keycaps?

I also want to make it with 6063. I have to discuss with the factory more. Will make renders with keycaps too. Will take couple of days.

well it is nice but very expensive for a joke... tbh would it have been sub 100 i would have grabbed one but i know it is not possible with machined aluminum, if you plan to make a much cheaper plastic version i would be in for sure.

No, it's not a joke. If you don't like the style of Nyaong75, should better buy more conventional styled keyboard.

And to make a plastic version under 100usd, moq should be more than 50K. Therefore, am not going to make a plastic version. Sorry.

PC version is more expensive than alu version. CNC costs more.

That is actually a genius idea. Greg might be a dog but he has the pointy ears.

Now I really want one that matches the colors of GMK Greg! Maybe not this run, but in the future along with the powder white?
