zekk.works R.B.B. (Really Bad Boy)

Prototype 1

Final Color Renders









As you can see, the final choices for choice of color will be Red and Black.

I know more was on the table in the original IC, but due to logistics we've made the decision to go with two colors. Two colors will allow a more smooth fulfillment process in the end and Mekibo and I are trying to make this as smooth as possible for everyone (including us!), so we appreciate your understanding on this.


-----

Some thoughts...

This keyboard was in the works for a long while, and as stated in my original IC, this was meant to be the culmination of a few iterations of a keyboard that set me off on a particularly degenerate journey. It's been incredible to see how others have put their own spin on their own favorite Kpop artists, Vtubers, or whatever they fancy. Knowing that it all started from one of my first designs gives me great pride and each new board that I see in this style adds on to that. Thanks to all for giving me the confidence (both directly and indirectly) to keep designing keyboards.

Now, this is the final iteration of the keyboard originally called Seulgi, then Seulgi v2, and penultimately Seulgi FE. Each design built off the last, taking various lessons-learned into considering prior to production of the next. My goal with RBB is to complete this several years long story and put some boards into the hands of people who have gassed me up time and time again.

Keyboard Details
  • Top mount
  • "Seamless"
  • Internal fastening
  • 6.9deg typing angle
  • Front face height: 17.8mm
  • Effective keyboard height (EKH): 22.1mm

  • Raffle details: Trivia based raffle (answers to trivia must be correct in order for your entry to be valid). Form link (a Google form) will be shared in both mine and Mekibo's Discords.
  • Start Time: Date and time to be announced soon. It will be a short raffle due to low units (50).
  • Relatively small kit: Keyboard (top/bottom/plate/weight/DB), choice of extra plates, choice of extra PCBs
  • Price: $575 (shipping not included!)

If you made it this far, thanks for reading and standing by as this came together. We're approaching the true beginning for this board!

Dear yoot zekkin.
It may have already been brought to light, that the community is unsatisfied with the current state of this tenkeyless board.
Their main concerns is the engravings and name. They feel as if you are simply using it as a way to capitalize off the current popularity of the v-tuber k-pop organization known as Hololive red velvet. I, to some extend, agree with this.

While I do believe it is acceptable to make a board inspired by your favorite v-tubers idols, doing so consecutively without any clear link between the board and the v-tuber idols will arouse suspicion as to whether you are truly doing this due to passion for the keyboard community and the v-tuber idols your board is representing, or simply doing it for your own gain.

Although I do see the idea of making a series of v-tuber k-pop inspired keyboards, I would highly advise you to reconsider the direction the design of this board is heading in. Either you should directly link it to an v-tuber idol with clean engravings, or remove any current resemblance, and simply run the board as a standalone group-buy.

Either way, I do believe the board has the potential to turn out well.
Best of luck.

Is this based on one of those k pop things all these kids have as their avatars?

Jokes aside this looks clean and I am excited to see more on the proto. Not for me given the theme but good job.

Most people get extra PCB anyway, so it would be a good idea to make it a default.  That makes your life easier.

I mean, it wasn't designed with an o-ring in mind. I would assume no, or at the very least it probably won't be tested.

Can you use an O-ring here?

Hello! No o-ring this time -- this will be pure top mount.

I see. Does this mean I need some foam for the bottom of the PCB to eliminate ping?

good keyboards don't need extra stuff

what is the front height? (perpendicular distance from the desk to the front of the r4 keycap) or effective keyboard height? https://github.com/Croktopus/effective-keyboard-height
what are the plate materials available? sorry if I missed it in the main post, I can't seem to find it
renders of the plate?
will the plate be contacting the top case along the perimeter of the top case internals? again, might be me not being able to see it properly

Front face height: 17.8mm
EKH: 22.1mm

what are the plate materials available? sorry if I missed it in the main post, I can't seem to find it

This is in the main OP:

GB Details
  • Sale format: 75 units (50 public raffle/25 FnF)
  • Start Time: ~July 2021
  • Fixed kit: Keyboard, 2 plates (1x 2mm PC/1x 1.5mm Aluminum), 1-2 PCBs (TBD in IC)
  • Price: TBD after receipt of prototype

renders of the plate?
will the plate be contacting the top case along the perimeter of the top case internals? again, might be me not being able to see it properly





And yes, the plate makes contact with the perimeter of the top case internals so as to not show and unsightly gap between the plate and top case.

Hope all that is helpful.

If I died today, and it turns out that not only is God real, but he's actually a zekk TKL with a Hiney PCB, MX Browns, and Handerbait, I wouldn't even be mad.
Fingers crossed for a good price when the proto arrives, my wallet can only take so much right now.

So some slightly unfortunate news -- the factory informed me last night that the backlog from pre-CNY was too big and not enough machines were available, so despite putting the order in ~3 weeks ago, production has not started on the prototype.

I'll be sure to update re: the prototype when I get more info from the factory.

---

I mentioned this on my stream last night but the results for the PCB portion of the IC are overwhelmingly for including 2 to match the 2 plates, so we'll go with that.

Keep filling in that form! I hope Warm Gray and Evergreen make it!

Hey all, it's been a little while and there's been quite a few responses on the IC. So far it's looking like these will be our color choices:



  • Black
  • Warm Gray
  • Red
  • Evergreen

It's not completely set in stone, so make sure to keep hitting that IC.

---

Unfortunately, still essentially no movement on the prototype manufacturing. Hoping that'll be on the move in the next week or two.

Hello Mr Zekk. That's an engrossing plate design. The small tabs coupled with the cutouts next to the mounting points will lead to some substantial flex.

Sorry for jebaiting everyone with the prototype pictures and poofing for a bit.

I've gotten some PCBs on hand and will be sending them and the prototype to two streamers to be built and looked at closely:
There's a few things internally that I'd like to change for production so I'll take a bit more time to work that out -- I don't believe another round of prototyping will be needed for these changes.

Following these builds I will provide more details on changes to the structure of the future group buy itself.

"I had planned to be nearly ready to start the group buy by now and then start it around the beginning of July, but I don't believe that is a good idea. In chatting with hiney recently, and you may have seen in other conversations in the community, there are major IC shortages throughout the world. It is not impossible to acquire the chips and other components necessary for the PCBs to be manufactured, but they are much more expensive (~3x more expensive).

I will not be starting a group buy until I've come up with a solution or alternative with hiney.

More information to come following the build streams and some personal time with the board (targeting late July/early August)."

Hey everyone!

Sorry for letting this fester in the deep pages of Geekhack since August. Around that time I was also looking for a new job, ended up moving to another state, as well as got fully involved in the new job. A lot more is asked of me in this new position so I've made a few decisions (some of this has already been shared in my Discord server, but since this is getting up and running again I want to make sure to update this thread as well).

It's become glaringly obvious, especially after sitting on Ogre extras for a year (just completed -___-), that my day job (as well as the downtime following the workday) takes too much time for me to be able to manage a group buy like I did with Ogre.

popkorn from Mekibo showed some early interest in the board (as well as sharing a love of Red Velvet) and has agreed to run the group buy! I'm super appreciative of this and we'll be able to produce more units (within reason for Mekibo, i.e. not unlimited) to make sure my designs are able to reach more of your desks.

The Plan

As most of you know, during the Lunar New Year holiday, what seems like the entirety of China shuts down for a portion February. Our factory will resume regular work in about 2 weeks so when that happens we'll be doing a few things:

  • Ordering a new round of RBB prototypes. These will be built by a couple streamers (will announce who and when in the future).
  • Color IC was pretty heavily leaning towards red, TBD if there will be different color options.
  • Group buy currently slated for ~April 2022, 100-200 units.

Having already completed, prototyped, and assembled the design personally, I'm fairly confident in the functionality of the design. However as there have been a couple small things that have changed since the initial prototype, it'll be nice to see how those changes work in practice (ex: bigger USB hole for different cables, removal of unnecessary cuts in both plates, and other tiny quality-of-life changes).

I'll also be updating the first post of this thread to be more aligned with the current plans for group buy.

Discord

More info about and renders of RBB can be found (and more will be shared as time goes on) in my Discord server, but going forward this thread will be updated as well. I'll do my best to reply to questions or whatever in this thread but I will most likely respond faster if asked through Discord.

Information and teasers for future projects such as OV (successor to Irene, also through Mekibo, to run at some point after RBB) and my full-size design (through Switchmod.net) can also be found in my Discord server!

Great to hear you were able to figure something out that allows you to focus more on the design side but also increase the public unit count. The jump from 25 to 100-200 public units will hopefully bring raffle odds into the low single digits!
