1. Details





Plate and Hotswap PCBs will be available in both fixed ANSI and ISO
Soldered PCBs will feature all below layout options








2. Status

At the time of writing this I have been using the prototype for around a week wirelessly across both windows and ipad, There are a few changes to be made such as the transition to fixed ansi/iso plate and minor dimension adjustments. But, overall I was very happy with how the prototype has turned out and look forward to bringing it to the Groupbuy stage in the near future.

4.FAQ

Zmk Firmware?
ZMK is keyboard firmware whose development has taken a “wireless first” approach and therefore will allow us to provide superb wireless functionality, battery life and connectivity. For more information please see https://zmkfirmware.dev

Battery life?
At the time of writing this decisions regarding what battery will be used are yet to be decided upon. The 120mah LiPo battery in the prototype gives an estimated month of battery life with current aims to increase this.

(Note this section will be added to in due time)

Bottom weight is a little lackluster but I love everything else and I dig 75%s. Will be watching this one!

Now that my initial awe has somewhat worn off, I have to agree. Hope the hotswap pcbs have the other bottom row layout or support both, as we’ve seen some designers manage now.

I've had my eye on 75% boards. Hits the sweet spot for me, but I'm glad I've held off until now. This thing is dope AF.

Yes. I will buy it.

6.25u. Sorry, I’d just woken up and it seemed to make perfect sense to me. 😂

Will keep an eye on this project, feels like a candidate for a daily driver at work.
Have you done a sound test of the prototype?
Will case foam be offered as option?
