[IC] Vette 60
« on: Fri, 01 July 2022, 16:16:16 »


Based off the side profile of a 60's C1 Corvette
Modified to highlight the geometry and streamline it to fit the proportions of a keyboard
Sleek design with a bit of flare to keep it fresh? Idk lol

The Vette is exactly what you think it is at first sight.

From the compact geometry and sleek angles reminiscent of its inspiration, the C1 Corvette, this project is an ambitious experimentation on the union of innovative ideas and streamlined engineering.

Meticulously crafted with your experience in mind, the Vette can be tailored how you see fit for a contemporary experience

Yeah I doubt he would want this over something like the 959 Mini as your board is based off a Chevy, not a Porsche which is what he's famous for tuning.
Also, Waveform Suppression System... c'mon now

What an incredible keyboard. Everything from the compact geometry, ambitious experimentation, contemporary experience, full gasket mount system, Waveform Suppression System (WSS), authenticity card and the Bespoke Edition just radiates ENDGAME.

Some people may shun you because this is your first post, you have no prototype and you may have no experience in the hobby at all, but those people are the ones of no talent recognition. The Simon Cowells of the hobby, if you will. They use their beige keycaps and top mount keyboards like it's still 2010, their tastes are laughable at best. The Vette 60 represents the future of the hobby. The mechanical keyboard has not changed since it was invented by Razer back in 2013 and it's all about to change right now. I will be following your work closely on Instagram and hope to have the pleasure of owning a Bespoke Edition Vette soon.

For anyone who feels the need to reply to my comment telling me "Keycult" is better, let me ask you this: Are Keycults inspired by anything? No. Do Keycults innovate? No. Do Keycults come in Bespoke Editions? No. Do you get white gloves with keycults? No. I can keep going for days...

This is the future, and the future is now. Godspeed.

looks quite nice design wise.

Can't comment on the technical aspects since i'm not as tech savvy as the 'lolz' crowd swarming this thread obviously is.

I think the unique aesthetic is pretty cool. Always like to see designers try new things rather than spitting out the same old same old.

That being said, are there measurements or tests that would back up the claims from "waveform suppression"? I think actual measurables would go a long way to helping you build credibility around this idea. Otherwise the community skepticism is a little warranted.
