I am not sure this board is quite for me just yet.
But I appreciate seeing something new and different.

The only things I would point out:

-The feets. I understand they are necessary, but they do feel like an afterthought and aren't quite as integrated into the design as I would like.
-I am not quite sure it is a 65%, that might require a small column somewhere to add some extra keys. But  I am not sure how that would be possible without changing the design.

-I am currently experimenting with the feet, it seems that they may not be necessary at all!
-As for the layout, I am not sure how else to categorize this.

I'm sure you have your own reasons for the weight/foot stand design,
But it's so obviously gonna be a dealbreaker for many,
I think you're just making things harder for yourself.
Best of luck though. I love how you position the knob. Might reconsider this later.

I am aware that the design may deter some people from buying, and it would maybe be easier to make a "normal" design.
Although I have also heard from a lot of people that they love it because of the bold design.

This is BADASS! My one suggestion is making the feet little triangles to match the weight? I think that would look awesome.

If people want a "basic" looking board, they don't need to look to far because there are a dozen new rectangle "regular" looking keyboards out every other month.
The design is different and bold, THAT is why people are gonna buy it, and thats why I personally love it. (hopefully I can spare the money when this goes into gb)

EDIT:
Also, are there going to be vendors for different regions?

I am currently talking with multiple vendors, there is a chance that there will be an Eu vendor, a US vendor, and possible others.
But i cannot confirm any vendors at this time.

Thank you for the interest.
After some testing we found out that the feet are not necessary at all, since brass weight is heavy enough so that it won’t fall.

Very nice concept. A pity that doesn't have ISO

The final version will include ISO support!

what if one hand is leaning on the keyboard on one side and weighing one side down in some manner, would it fall over in that case?

For the board to fall over, you would have to try and make it do so.
The only way for it to fall over, is if you press a lot harder than you would ever do in any real scenario.

Love this design. Has all the things that I would like in a board especially if it comes with ISO support.
I might be going against the grain here but per key RGB or at the least, backlit would be nice. Looking forward to see how this progresses especially if you can source decent international vendors (UK my preference is Prototypist). GLWIC

This rotary dial trend is going out of bounds. From one rotary to two rotary boards and now into making 65s effectively TKL sized with less keys.

Not for me but it's certainly something new for the community.

Pretty sure this is a sign that people are getting sick of all 65% looking the same. Knob meta is real and i'm sure people will tire of this soon as well.

To me the design is so wild that it works. Intentionally different & refreshing. Not for me as well but supportive of those who love it.

An HHKB layout for that 60% section would be beyond dope.

Digging the design, though I feel like you missed the opportunity to present this as origami themed.

An LED ring around the knob that turns with you and fades out after a few seconds would be cool.

I wish it had at least white underkey lighting. And I sort of wish it was an integrated spacemouse which would make the knob more useful although maybe uglier.
