Does the pcb layout support split right spacebar instead of left one?

I'm interested as well, but would like to see supported layouts. You had mentioned posting an image, a few pages back in the thread, but I haven't seen one posted yet. You also mentioned you decided on the colors, based on IC results, but I did not see those posted either.

Will standard alice plates work on this? eg. hiney, TGR, etc?

You think we're can change the bottom weight and rubber feet to be something like this? It would look as beautiful on the bottom as it does on the top.

Right now i think the current weight, weight logo and rubber feet let the beautiful aesthetic of the board down.


It's Topre for me so I'm out, but I have to say: this is one of the most striking boards I've seen in a while. Well, as configured, the top is anyway. mattling9 makes a good point for this board. The attention to detail on the bottom, as configured, is not worthy of the rest of the board. While I was screening the renders, I was thinking, "Wow" and "Damn" and "That was a great choice." and then, when I saw the pics of the bottom: the mismatched materials, the cheap-a** 3m bump-ons, I was thinking, "That's a shame."

Too... I see you guys are talking about a gasket and there are no photos of such a thing in the renders.

I am definitely excited to see this hit the GB stage. I'm currently keeping tabs on 3 ergos rn and this might be my favorite of the bunch. Super excited to see it come out, and even if I buy a different ergo before this, as long as that beautiful purple color comes out, I'll have my hands on one of these.

Hi everyone,
Just wanted to let everyone know that the project is in fact not dead. We know this has been going very slowly but we ask for your understanding.
Life happens and sometimes it's not the easiest to focus on a project in conjunction with everything else. That said the prototype is getting built this week and the details finalized by the end of the week.
We're currently aiming for an early to mid June release as everything other than the sound tests are ready. Once again we're very sorry for the lack of updates but we're asking that you bear with us for the few weeks left until the GB.

Donít want to be a Debbie downer but the lack of responsiveness during this IC phase is telling for how the fulfillment phase might go.

Best of luck.

Well, not really. For a couple of different reasons. The manufacturing and fullfilment phase will be handled by keebwerk for one. Additionally we took our time with the IC precisely so there is no impact in the timeframe of the actual GB. Now when the GB is up there will also be a discord server for more frequent updates and more immediate communication.

Hello everyone! The prototype has finally been built! The current build is using a POM plate and H1's (there are some other random swithces sprinkled in some mod keys because we run out of H1's)
Here is a first picture, we are currently gathering the gear to record a more professional sound test which will be posted in this comment as soon as it's ready.

5 more minutes mom! Jokes aside, we're still trying to record a sound test. Gears all arrived, but making a video to go along with the sound test has been proven tricky. In any case we'll post some of the raw sounds for now and try to record a video in the meantime.

Have you guys thought about sending to streamers for streaming? Nowadays for GB, I'd like to see how the board is structured and built, rather than single typing sound video.
