Hey everyone. This holiday rush ain’t no joke. We hope everyone is enjoying it.

Countdown to >Terminal_ has arrived. We’ve discussed the plan in depth with GMK, ran on the hamster wheels, constructed additional pylons, and are proud to announce that TKC’s first keycap set will be launching 1/7/17.

In case some need to get up to speed, >Terminal_ was conceived in-house to be a classy, simple colorway, influenced by the *Green Screen* monochrome monitors from our past, with accenting familiar to many, especially those keyboard warriors who code. Even if you don’t code, the novelties were designed to complement the universal tech-inspired theme.

SAMPLE LAYOUT RENDERS
Sample Layout Renders

Kit Mockups

The 167 piece **>Terminal_ Base Kit** supports the following layouts with 100% proper profiles:

* ANSI
* US-ISO
* Winkeyless
* 1800
* 65%/75%/96-key
* FC660
* Minivan
* JD40/45
* Planck/Preonic
* Minorca
* HHKB

The beauty of supporting this many layouts without a thousand caps was, as Bob Ross would say, a happy accident. Listening to the countless valuable feedback from the community to support *this* layout or *that* layout lead us to discover that there’s a lot of keycap sharing possible between the numerous custom layouts that people prefer. We believe that by choosing wisely and doing our best not to balloon the keycap count too much, we reached a happy place. The Base Kit also features a total of 9 custom legends: 1u prompts for alternate Escape, 1.25u OS-agnostic prompts, 1.25u and 1u hashbangs, VIM arrows, and Minivan arrows. All legends will be sweet GMK doubleshot - no pad printing to be found here.

In addition to the Base Kit, we’re pleased to offer a solution for the many (MANY) requests for an Ergodox kit, the **N9 Ergodox Modifiers**. As a special treat, with the blessing of Joseph (jchan94 of Keyclack) and Sheraton (waikane of Originative), the N9 ‘Dox kit will also include accent keycaps for their respective popular GMK sets in addition to Terminal. As many of you know, GMK sets tend to have a little harder time hitting MOQ when kitted out too much, and banding together we feel the community can make this happen, whether you’re interested in Terminal or excited that you’d finally be able to deck out your Ergodox with the legendary GMK Sky Dolch or soon to be legendary GMK Hydro.

Speaking of MOQs, we want to let the international peeps know that we spent a lot of sleepless nights figuring out how to make a Terminal international kit attractive and viable enough to tip. We don’t need to mince words - international kits are always tough to tip MOQ. With gracious gifts of his time and wisdom, LeandreN advised us on referencing an “Essentials” kit designed by Wodan from Geekhack, so we did. This aided in keeping the **International Essentials Kit** relatively affordable, with a minimum amount of keys that gives most people what they want to see without being too cost-prohibitive going full conventional “International”. It’s still going to be tough to hit MOQ, but we hope this takes things a step closer to realizing the dream. With UK-ISO featured in the kit, we really hope that that large userbase steps up for the team.

There’s a spacebar kit added because, well, you have to have a cool spacebar kit.

**Shortest FAQ ever**

**Who the hell am I trusting my money with?**
TheKey.Company
Business Verification
We are a licensed, registered, and insured company based out of Detroit, Michigan, USA. TKC is a joint business venture between
Jason “mikehoncho” Knapp
and
Brian “unclebrudy” Gutierrez

**OK. So what’s the plan?**
>Group buy 1/7/17, 30 days. Hopefully this gives people enough time to recover from holiday spending. Upon close of the GB on 2/7/17, payment will be submitted to GMK immediately. Lead time quoted is 12 weeks. Upon delivery, orders will be immediately sorted, boxed, and shipped from TKC’s warehouse in Michigan. All keycap kits large and small will be shipped from GMK and to you in GMK trays. Yes, even if you only order the N9 Ergodox Modifier Kit. If you are in Asia, we are working diligently with a reputable vendor who has successfully handled previous GBs. Stay tuned.

**Sounds good. What’s this going to cost me?**
>If the exchange rate between the Euro and USD remains decently stable, the following are the projected prices: Base $159, N9 Ergodox Modifiers $45, International Essentials $30, Spacebars $10. We are basing pricing off the max MOQ tier for convenience and cost savings. **Even if the max MOQ tier is not tipped**, we will keep the cost as quoted. For the unprecedented support of many layouts and the total custom legends offered, we hope the pricing feels fair to everyone.

Big thanks to LeandreN, evangs, thesiscamper, alex_at_panc, waikane, jchan94, and the entire MK community for more than you all know.

**TL;DR** >Terminal_ incoming. Have a great holiday.





It's not TKC's intention to inundate the sub with IC's so close to one another, but our most recent update raised some eyebrows regarding lacking Ergodox compatibility for the upcoming group buy. Well, *we* raised our eyebrows and came up with this:

153471-6

We'll figure out a catchier name.
A nice bonus if >Terminal_ is not for you, with **N9** being such a neutral and popular base color, the 'Dox crew can also look forward to color compatibility with:

  • waikane's gorgeous Charred Orange and Sky Dolch
  • jchan94's insanely handsome Hydro
  • Karura's world famous Skidata+
  • All current flavors and variations of GMK Dolch

It's our hope that there's enough Ergodox users with these various amazing community member's keysets, whether already in their collection or on the radar, this add-on kit will tip MOQ. We kept it blank and simple for affordability and compatibility. We are awaiting GMK's quote before further updates.

What do you good folks think? Sound off here:

Thanks!

Hello everyone. Thanks for dropping by again!

>Terminal_ is just about ready to go! We've forwarded final mockups and are waiting for quotes from GMK this week, and from there it's full steam ahead. We want to first take this opportunity and say thank you to everyone for the great feedback, small and large. It really helped mold >Terminal_ v0.1a (ha!) into what we feel is an even greater set. We hope you understand that while we were not able to accommodate everyone's requests, we feel we found the happy medium that would please most of you. The profile compatibility we were able to achieve for many popular layouts from just a few additional caps were amazing, and we have no one to thank but you all, the community. These are just a few layouts possible with full-profile coverage, as FC660 (yay!) and Plancks are not pictured but absolutely covered.

Yes, the font will be GMK's house font. =) Changes from the initial interest check:
  • Big thanks to /u/evangs . He helped so much not just to aid in covering the Minivan, but in every way possible to ensure we weren't missing anything. He graciously allowed us to piggyback on his keycaps/legends from 80s Kid, and the additional Minivan keys help cover other layouts as well!
  • Another big thanks to LeandreN. His feedback was invaluable, and he's offered to do more than we could imagine. LeandreN will be linking >Terminal_'s International Kit on Mekanisk. He has also kindly offered to proxy Europe! This week we shall brainstorm and calculate whether it would be beneficial to possibly have him proxy other locales, to ensure we pass on the best shipping costs to everyone.
  • Huge thanks to thesiscamper . We gave him the final mockups very late last week and he pulled off some magic in an insanely short amount of time. Having >Terminal_ beautifully rendered reinforced our vision that this thing looks pretty damn good. He was also very nice about me (unclebrudy ) pestering him at all hours of the day with questions.
  • Thanks a million to alex_at_panc . He pointed out that simply adding an R4 2.25u would provide full Minorca compatibility, but it ended up not being that simple. In a good way. That one "simple" additional key helped cover the FC660, Minivan, and more.
  • >Terminal_ has now drawn inspiration from the amazing Skidata+ keyset in the form of icon mods. We had an overwhelming majority believing that icon mods, where possible, would look great. You folks were right.
  • Sorry to those who may miss it, but we had many many requests to replace the Windows icons. Considering that using the hashbang (on theme and cool-looking!) makes the set more OS-agnostic, we thought that would be a welcome change.
  • 1800, TX1800, 65% (TADA, RS68, etc.), 75% (Octagon, B.Mini, etc.), Planck, and Preonic compatible caps added.
  • A big one - base was changed to N9, which opens up a lot of opportunities to customize with other amazing sets that are the same base color. Figure, it's not as if our monitors from wayback when displayed true black, right? We feel it maintains the same feel as CR while allowing more options to play with. Yippee.

We know, it's a large-ish base set. We hope coming together and supporting each other's layout choices as one will help meet MOQ. We'll say it now - sorry Ergodox folk. We'll do our absolute best to line something up in the future if and when >Terminal_ is re-released. To make sure that we find a price point that is fair and satisfactory, we may have to modify custom legends instead of sacrificing layout compatibility. VIM and Minivan arrows are being explored with GMK to see if front-printing versus shooting will make a marked costs savings. We will have final results in the GB announcement. Group Buy PSA
Thanks so much everyone. We hope we didn't disappoint too many people and look forward to everyone's thoughts!

Love the color way. Question, will there be a R2 - sign for numpad? I see an R3 + sign and a single 0 so maybe :)

Edit- is that a small - next to delete? Hard to tell

Ah. A TX 1800 owner?  ;D

This is the roughest of the rough mockups we have right now. Renders will be presented if there's a positive response to the set (like yours! thanks!) that will be much clearer and more to scale, with GMK's actual font.

To answer your question, yes. Thanks!

Is the N9 color purple? On KLE it comes out as gray. Also I would vote to offer it all as one set instead of breaking it into  child kits.

N9 is not purple. It's dark grey (it's the base colour of Skidata and modifiers colour of Dolch)

I would like to see the set in a dolch style color scheme with slightly lighter alphas, and the option or inclusion of GMK symbol modifiers. Buuut that might be asking for a little much and neither of those would keep me from buying this set. Great work.

Having a second 2.25u Shift to accommodate FC660M users is great, however you guys are missing one 1.75u Shift to properly support 1800/65/75% arrangements. Also, may I suggest going with either entirely Icon-only mods or Text+Icon mods, it seems strange to have all modifiers with text+icons but then having the second 2.25u Shift being Icon-only. (my preference is for Textless icons, but I digress).

Other than that, layout support is looking good!

The website shows Win keys but the OP doesn't.  I would like to put in my vote for 1-2 Win keys for those of us who use Windows (but still pseudo-terminal via Cygwin!!!).

...but if I'm being honest, I'm in regardless. :)

No. Midnight is a completely different shade of green. Also Midnight base was black, this is dark grey. Absolutely nothing alike, physical or thematic.

Yeah, totally like Midnight.

Otherwise no. Midnight was also DCS and this is clearly GMK. The differences are enough to distinguish them.

N9 is the darkest grey, just a tad lighter than CE (black). It looks black unless it's next to CE, and the nice bonus is it can mix/match with other popular sets with N9 as the base.

Oh damn. This is sex. I wish gmk weren't the only keys getting love at the moment but if this has a release date set after all the sets I'm currently eyeballing, I'd for sure be in.

Thanks!

Having a second 2.25u Shift to accommodate FC660M users is great, however you guys are missing one 1.75u Shift to properly support 1800/65/75% arrangements. Also, may I suggest going with either entirely Icon-only mods or Text+Icon mods, it seems strange to have all modifiers with text+icons but then having the second 2.25u Shift being Icon-only. (my preference is for Textless icons, but I digress).

Other than that, layout support is looking good!

Revised mods incoming tomorrow! Regarding the 1.75u, we thought we had that covered. Mind elaborating?

The website shows Win keys but the OP doesn't.  I would like to put in my vote for 1-2 Win keys for those of us who use Windows (but still pseudo-terminal via Cygwin!!!).

...but if I'm being honest, I'm in regardless. :)

We're thinking long and hard about this. Thanks so much.

Sorry I goofed, I saw the additional 1.75u Shift now, it was because in your render, the smaller shifts had text only and not the icon, so that threw me off.

Regardless, I would suggest keeping all the mods consistent, and if you guys decide to go with all icon-only mods with no text, that would be grand!!!  :thumb:

Keep up the good work!

Come tomorrow, we'd love to hear your feedback on the consistency changes. We think you'll like what you see.

I was going to keep my TK78 all black with green LEDs, but this might be better!

Interesting set!

The render looks like it has two R3 1.75u non-stepped CapsLock keycaps. You might have already fixed it in the new pending one, though.

The base set has a blank R4 1.5u cap. It is really meant to be 1.5u instead of 1.25u?

I'm interested, although I'd prefer CR (black) instead of N9.  Also what about adding a green shift and spacebar?  Other GMK drops have offered space bars, shifts, arrows, etc. in more than one color, where one of the colors is the legend of the other keys.

Love the set, really hoping for Ergodox support but Minivan and Planck support.

Noice - interested.

Non-stepped Caps-Lock is duplicate, icon-only R-shift is missing (or L-shift, there's only one).

Looks good, any thoughts on a modifiers colorway to later tack on to this?

Thanks for pointing that out! M1kehonch0 attached the wrong image! FIXED!

YES! We are. Waiting on quote from GMK. We have to make sure the kit isnt going to cost $400 before we add more kits. We think it can happen....
