IC Updated. It's been a hectic year, I'm pretty excited to finally post some progress!

Looking great. Do you plan to offer any plate materials other than alu?

Yes, I have a poll on it in the form. Keep in mind that I won't be able to keep the flex cuts in the picture for softer materials.

Newer weight and engravings do look nice, but I must say I do prefer the older Triangle through-hole weight design. Really liking the look of the Gray WKL. 4-point leaf-spring Alu plate is a cherry on top, along with the proposed standard POM plate. As for the third colour, Silver would be nice classy addition.

Nice update! I'll admit to preferring the old weight too as the design reflects your seam design. A bit sad to see HHKB layout go but if it did not get enough votes that's just how things are.

Been following your project for a bit and excited to see that its still in the works! I'll chime in and say that I'm also partial to the old weight design.

Thanks for the feedback; I'm actually pretty surprised at all the support for the old weight design so far. I should probably explicitly mention that the new weight design depicts a binary search tree (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Binary_search_tree) where the root node is accented by the brass. This board is meant to have an overall theme related to programming hence the linked list on the plate. I've added this bit to the IC.



While I thought the old triangular weight did look nice, I couldn't say that I was completely happy with it because at the end of the day it was a nonsensical design meant only to look "cool". Once I received the board I also thought that the design looked a bit underwhelming in person compared to the renders. In addition, triangular logos are used so often I couldn't help but feel that my old design was a tad generic. In fact, right after I posted my initial IC I was contacted by Justin who had coincidentally come up with a similar design for his logo at the time. He was super nice and just wanted to make sure I was aware and comfortable with the similarities, but it still showed how adding a "cool-looking triangle" probably isn't the best choice in terms of creativity.




I just wanted to offer some insight into why I made the change, and for what it's worth, after receiving both prototypes in person I am very happy about the change I made.

FWIW I'm a super fan of the new binary tree weight. It's such a subtle flex to say "my keyboard plate has a linked list on it", too.

That said, not everyone here is a software eng / has a degree in CS, so maybe it'll go over some heads.

yeah but can you invert that binary tree on a whiteboard???

jokes aside, glad that this project is still alive. as a professional googler the new weight speaks to me more.

I really appreciate you sharing your design decision on the weight. I liked the new design before I knew what it was and do prefer it.
The other design shiny objects on this keyboard are minimal and yet fun and refreshing. IC filled.

don't know how this slipped under my radar, but this looks really really nice. mounting looks good (love seeing the omega60 spacebar cut) the exaggerated seam saves it from looking like yet another boring, wedge shaped keyboard, and the binary tree design on the bottom with the slight brass accent looks super slick and i much prefer it to the original bottom. think this would look stellar in silver or blue gray  :thumb:
