What material is the Hello World badge made of?


Also your shipping date seems very ambitious. Are the boards already produced?

The material of "HELLOWORLD" badge is brass.
To be honest, the product has not been produced yet, but we did make some preparations and we will try to make the product at the agreed time.

Maybe in the future, not sure the time.
The hotswap PCB will be a fix layout, no split keys supported.
