Hello~

Because GB of HB85 has ended,so I modified this post as a separate IC post for the Oblivion.

Earlier, I saw a layout by @ Delirious(this picture) on GH.

I fell in love with it in a moment;So soon I decided to design this layout.

Because I think this is a classic and perfect, so I'm not going to modify him, just want  to rebirth it out.
And I  love this film 《Oblivion》, so I want to design the minimalist style of keyboard( like film showing).

This is the design at the present stage, and I still like the design very much.



Some sketches on the back design


Rendering photos~











I hope you can give me some advice,say THKS frist~

[Update new bottom design]






I wonder if you like this design?

That's a nice idea, something different compared to past customs  :thumb:  I personally would prefer a straight line on the top of the board and not a modified one above the numpad.

I saw the name and thought you were doing the GMK keyset... not disappointed, but I was confused.

Looks really cool. I personally dig the lines: I think you're taking an old layout and giving it a more modern and recognizable form that is uniquely its own. Can't wait to see more.

Also - I do think that since there's already a famous GMK Oblivion set, you're going to have more than one confused person thinking they're opening up a thread about keycaps. Not sure if that's enough to change your mind, but it will be slightly confusing for the community.

Looks great! :eek: Being honest I am not a full sized KB person at all, but this kit might be a buy for me. I love the look & the layout is pretty unique, nothing quite like it out there right now that I can think of other than the vintage KB that inspired it. Awesome work here, definitely keeping my eye on this project! :thumb:

Looks great! No objections from me regarding the name, a product worthy of it. Would buy it in a heartbeat if it were a TKL.

I really like the top design, it's not just a plain surface, but still classy and not looking like over-designed trash.

Aren't the caps/scroll/numlock indicators duplicate tho? top left and above numpad.

It would be interesting to see an example without the whole top row as well. Something that looks like a 68 key with a numpad.

Very beautiful design, especially the bottom, my one question is, it looks like there are two sets of indicator LEDs, one on the top edge on the left, the other on the tag on the right.

Really like it apart for the the LED area. It's very busy compared to the super slick lines of the rest of the board. I would personally prefer it without the extra bezeled accent color bit around the LEDs.

Because I think this is a classic and perfect, so I'm not going to modify him, just want  to rebirth it out.


Some folks here won't be able to use their existing keycaps on this "classic and perfect" layout.
(I opt out)

Edit:
my mistake, I didn't realize you did change the layout afterall.

Thank you first. :) to be more convenient to modern,on the basis of the original, a common return key is added. :)

And because I like the film so much, soI  may not change  name. :-[(At least there's no better name in the short term, and it won't change.)

I'm glad someone finally notices and appreciates the compact layout of Focus 1001. This was posted on deskthority a while back, I cant recall the original poster's name. But you can find the whole album here.

I'm definitely in for one. If there's any room for suggestions, I would like to see the vertical separation to have the same thickness as the the horizontal separation. Right now the vertical line is a bit too thick for my taste.

I really like this. The curve above the numpad is great. I'm not sure what I'd use two lots of indicators LEDs for, but if you make them separately controllable / use an open-source firmware, I'm sure I'll find a good use for them.

I would suggest shipping with two interchangeable face-plates for the right-hand indicator LEDs, one in the plate colour (as you have shown), and one in the case colour.

Does the numpad area cover a layout like this;

https://hackadaycom.files.wordpress.com/2016/03/kish.jpg
(obviously with a bit more keys on the side and top :P)

Looking at the layout options 2x 1u bottom row is possible but your render says otherwise ;)

Well then, you should definitely consider making the left lot into actual LED indicators -- they could be used to e.g. show the current layer.

This looks fantastic! I've been a huge fan of 75% + Numpad for a long time, but don't like 96/1800 layouts and this fits the bill perfectly.

Also, I would suggest changing the name of the keyboard to something else, since most already think of GMK Oblivion keyset already, and same name on a keyboard will create confusion.

The design on back kind of reminds me of Nvidia Geforce 10-series graphics cards - anyone else see it? Not bad, just a comment.

I think the name should stay as is.

It goes nicely with this board and the logo on the bottom of the board looks sick.

It does also say custom keyboard in the title. Not sure how you'd confuse it unless all you did was choose to read Oblivion and assume it's the keyset.

You say that, yet ANSI support was added and a couple other things (backspace, changes to the numpad key sizes). If he were going to stay "true" to the original layout this would be an ISO-only layout, no?
