really cool design, one of only 2 customs this year which have actually caught my attention!
i'm somewhere in the middle on the badge - i like it, but i would love if blank/custom badges would be an option. i understand custom badges would add a lot more work so releasing the dimensions/drawings or a cad file of the badge alone would allow for custom ones to be produced outside of the gb.
either way, i'm going to keep a close eye on this.

I'm a massive fan of this, the design is really well done and I am a sucker for HHKB layouts. I've been jealous of nice 65s with macro columns so glad it's being done for other layouts.


I like the badge, it's simple and does compliment the theme of the board well. Hopefully there can be some other options for badges or you can release the CAD files so people can have their own made.

very nice design to my liking. But consider adding 6u spacebar with centered switch too. And maybe add more options for blocker badge, this one looks meh

look very nice, would you be able to provide a KLE layout compatibility picture? took me a while to realize this is not 7u spacebar since I didn't read the text at all :giggle:

Thank you for using actual HHKB Layout. I really like the addition of the XT row (that makes me extra Happy)
Is the internal weight position so far down on purpose, or why isn't it centered so every row is covered with the internal weight?

I have added a KLE compatibility picture! This is subject to change in the future, I will keep it as up to date as possible.

Also added typing angle to the details section!

The badge feels very under designed which makes it stick out like a sore thumb against the rest of the board. Will there be an option for a blank badge or some other design?

there's a very stark difference between something being 'under designed' and something being intentionally simplistic to match the theme, this is pretty clearly the latter imo

The massive fillets on the badge right next to the tiny fillets on the top case don't match. The logo is _very_ simple and looks out of place to some of us. The "theme" is unclear (is it supposed to be "simple"?) since the bottom isn't just a wedge and has curves to it but the top is just a rectangle with fillets.

I second this. Blocker badge looks kind of ugly and out of place right now. Hope it will be redesigned.

The fillets aren't that massive, I think they match the external ones pretty well, but if you're talking about the internal, its not going to be noticeable once you have caps. And in terms of simple, I think its relatively simple, just a happy face, the curve is a simple curve, no dolphin or more Kustom sides.

The idea is to take the logo sticker in the corner blocker and bring it to match the lighthearted theme.

I just wanted to add that I hope you can have vendors for this. Current international shipping for keyboards is really pricey, having vendors allows those outside of the main country to get the keyboard at a reasonable cost, instead of paying 1/4th of their total order in shipping.


For Australia perhaps reach out to SwitchKeys.

Sourcing 6u wires in high quantities is something that I have been looking at. If I can find a good lead ahead of GB time, that is something I would love to offer.

Defo do this! I would buy like 30 6u wires if you can get some nice ones.

This is POG. Would have liked smaller side bezels, but that's just me. Great design, 350$ in the current climate would actually be insane. Hope you hit it.

The chances of adding split space bar support... somewhere between zero and nil?

Hey all, just an update on the badge since it seems (quite expectedly) to be a pretty controversial feature. Like others have mentioned, a huge part of the concept of this board was presenting an homage to the original HHKB. The idea is to take the logo sticker in the corner blocker and bring it to match the lighthearted theme. And personally, I think it adds to the unique character of the board! For those reasons, I intend to keep the badge. Thanks again for your interest and feedback everyone!

based and objectively correct decision

if you manage to get it done at $350, I am definitely interested in joining!

You should 100% KEEP the top badge. Hopefully there's a PC case option, but I'm still joining this GB regardless.
