I don't have the board, but I'd be willing to bet that there's a market for it if you can produce the PCBs (BT boards have a history of being very finicky).

No, there are some posts that take years to reach production level, and get a lot of input from the community, so the phrase you used highly exaggerates what the community expects of IC posts.

also flexcuts ain't gonna do much with a layer of silicone + hotswap lol

With you on all. The only thing that pulled me in is the fact it was going to be Bluetooth enabled, nevertheless reading "flex cuts" after remembering all Rama products have a layer of MUTE does not sit well with me. Also, I think these keebs draw a lot of power considering they have a s*t ton of ARE-GEE-BEE.

while i agree the phrase "interest check" has a pretty wide definition that is very closely narrowed on GH specifically, I wonder what place OP should go to get the classic Y/N answer that they are looking for so they dont commit hours and dollars on something that people might not even want, feasibility aside. (i would point them to the rama discord kara channel but that doesnt exist to my knowledge)

I believe an Interest Check thread should at least remain as "Interest Check" in literal terms for those who still wishes to contribute to the keyboarding community with their creativity.
OP is not obliged to be production-ready for "something that he's unsure whether Gh community members will be interested or not" just to present us the idea.
IC as a strictly pre-production announcement imho is just too much.
BTW, don't have a Kara, and not too keen on bluetooth so probably not interested, but GLWIC and your progression.

Actually, I have a plan like this too, base on G60BLE's PCB, but... I'm lacking Bluetooth modules, estimated delivery time is over 48 weeks...

You’re getting drunk on the concept. Interest checks started out as “I made something cool. Would you like to have it as well?” And we should keep it as is IMO.
