Welcome to Daze65 Interested Check!!!


Hello  Geekhackers! This is SakuraThocc Studio Works® from Asia and Europe. We are a new company in the enthusiast keyboard industry bringing you high quality bespoke endgame keyboards. We consist of a team of creative individuals: Jing (lead designer), $W4GK!NG (lead designer), Fran (ergonomics expert), rookb (customer support), Ella (graphics designer), kptburger (former child), 7h3of7 (translator) and Of Sam (investor).

Did you know that in Japan there are 6 vending machines for every person? WOW!

IC FORM: https://forms.gle/xBTYw8ibP7J4TgdV9

Our philosophy
Today we bring you the Daze65 65% gasket mounted keyboard. Daze means “(noun) a state of stunned confusion or bewilderment.” It is inspired by Japan, Japanese culture and oriental culture in general. We feel there is lacking amount of true Japanese beauty represented in this space so we bring you this keyboard today.

The layout of the Daze combines the functionality of a full size keyboard with the ergonomics and compactness of a 65% form factor. It is built to perform. The numpad Enter, Plus and 0 bring the benefit of having a numpad to a compact form factor while many dedicated layer keys can be used to simulate numpad number input. This increases user performance and productivity by up to 300%.



Thank you Bachoo for this awesome render!


Specifications:
65%
10° typing angle
Gasket leaf spring mount (Poron®)
6061 Aluminum case
HOTSWAP PCB
USB Type-C
Stainless steel bottom piece
Carbon fibre bottom piece
Brass weight
2.8 kg unbuilt

Innovation
We are expanding on the popular gasket mount design to bring you the most pleasant bouncy and soft typing experience
along with carefully thought out flex cuts. We are using Poron® gasket foam material for isolation to bring the most comfortable keystrokes.

The kit will come with 2 different case foams, PCB PE foam and plate foam for maximum acoustical pleasure and deep sound (thock) tuning.

For ease of assembly and to achieve the best aesthetic design while hiding the screws on the back case we have decided
to connect the top and bottom case using MAGNETS. We don’t know how they work but we are confident that this is the best solution for this issue.


The back of the keyboard and sides are inspired by the great wave of Kanagawa. We can see beautiful curves which are formed on the back.
Our goals are to revolutionize the backsides of keyboards with intricate detail for most pleasant aesthetic experience.


The bottom is inspired by CW88 keyboard by Cruel World.





Colors
Colors available will be: Shinkanzen Blue, Bok Choy Green, 風邪 Black, Sakura Pink and Seieki White (E-white)




We wanted to gain input from popular keyboard influencers so we reached out to Shoobs and Black Simon.

My Katakana is rusty to say the least, but if I'm not mistaken the weight literally reads "Deez Nuts" (as close as you can get in Japanese anyway). It's very safe to assume this was just an april fool's joke
