This is a 50% or 55% if you count the right cluster

It's just math. These namings are relative to a 100% keyboard, which has 105 keys. Lets round to 100 to make it easier. Now, this is a 65% without the numrow (-14 keys or -14% keys of a 100 keys board.).

Other examples of 50%.

Could you include a pic showing the entire keyboard layout with keycaps. I can't get a good idea of what it fully looks like.

If those are dual 1.75u shifts, this board is going to be physically incompatible with caps that don't have a Minivan lock key or another 1.75u shift. I suggest a minor edit to the layout to fix this.

I'm a bit late, but just wanted to say that I really like the layout of this board compared to similar boards I've seen :thumb:. The red colorway is super vibrant as well. Generally just looks like a really clean and solid option, nice!

i like this a lot but need to see a layout before i can be sure. compatibility is king here - just because i normally get a 40s kit doesnt mean everyone does. and sometimes there isnt a 40s kit to be had.

Yeah but you can JoIn ThE DiScOrD. :rolleyes: I'm interested in this, but I'm also maxed out on servers already, so I guess I just have to hope there's an update here when it moves to GB.
Shhhhh...my wallet doesn't know I'm here.

The right column blocker is a cool idea. I’ve wanted a 40 for a bit, and a little more detail could make we want in on this. Want to see a proto for sure.
