I joined for the Drop run and I'm very pleased with the board overall, the packaging was poor but I had no issues with my product.

However the price point being $100+ above the Drop run feels a bit off.

Would be nice if the compatibility was kept with the daughter boards that Evelien-Lillian (anykeys.eu) designed so that one could use plain-60 with this board as well.

I've also joined the Drop run of this board. Still one of my favorite designs so far. If I didn't already own the board, I'd join this GB in a heartbeat!

Good Luck!

So, I joined the Drop GB.  There were a few of problems that I ran into:

  • the plate didn't actually support split space bar layouts.
  • QMK firmware was not merged into the mainline.  It was just in some random Google Drive buried in the Drop comment thread...  I actually had to spent a lot of time porting the firmware back into QMK's main repo: https://github.com/qmk/qmk_firmware/pull/11050.  But still, VIA support is not in there since I don't know much about VIA and left it out of the port.  I also skipped the split space bar layouts since the plate actually doesn't support them.  There is also an active fix waiting to be merged: https://github.com/qmk/qmk_firmware/pull/11685#pullrequestreview-579728709.  I think you guys really shouldn't overlook details like the QMK firmware and be more active working within the QMK main repo.
  • The PCB design is also a bit sketchy as I broke connector strip for the daughter board and had to order some from ebay...
  • The case is quite pingy and could definitely use some foams (both plate & case).


Overall, I actually love the look of the board a lot.  I was lucky enough to not have my case scratched.  Good luck with the new GB.  I hope you guys could fix some of the problems I pointed out.

Can we please get Alps support and Apple key cap support?
"60% Universal Layout PCB"

I know this is top mount, but do you think is there any chance one could adapt it to use other 60% universal layout PCBs instead? I ask from the point of view of someone who would love to be able to use Alps switches in this case if at all possible (and I don't assume this kit's included PCB would support that).
+1 for Alps support and option for no badge.


alps support?


I have personally thought about ALPS support, tho 3rd party PCB could be a good alternative option and since plate file is open source that can be altered to support Alps switches.

The reason not to officially support Alps is that since FanC and I never designed PCB for this type of switches means there is a good chance more thing will go wrong and pushing GB date wayyyy back

For everyone asking for Alps support, you can literally modify the plate file and throw a Hineybush H60 PCB in it. That's what I did with the Hello v1 from Drop.

Hiney H60 has MX/Alps support, along with a JST connector. If anyone needs help with a plate file, let me know when the v2 file becomes available.

wow, what a mess that been left to us. we try to pick up the pieces that were left unattended by ryloo and Drop. Not a coder myself but I'll try to look into github repo issues, thank you for bringing it up

1. Beige colour is undergoing testing, more likely to be Electric static coated Beige (smooth matt finish)

2. Properly shaped gasket kit is on order

3. Removed Left, Right, and Spacebar mounting point on the plate due to popular demand

4. New plate will also add in split Spacebar support (Drop's run didn't support split Spacebar)

3. PCB is getting revised completely, mainly to support JST connector cable and outright supporting the latest Unified-Daughterboard design published by ai03. Will also add-in anti-static measure to the main PCB as well.

Nice update, I am glad you removed the plate mounting points.

Pretty sure those keycaps aren't mounted, but just sitting on the plate

If you're keeping the badge are there any options for a custom design request of the badge? Or release of the badge dimensions so I can commission someone for one.

is it just me or is the beige prototype a bit greenish or is that just the lighting/background tricking me? Board looks very pretty though and I am definitely interested!

Yeah, those keys with stabs aren't mounted but placed on the plate, so it looks more crampted

Sounds interesting. Avoids the original m0110 issues I had.

Will keep a lookout.

From what I read on the discord, there will be NO badges available.

Any more deets on the GB? Are the number of units capped at anything? Where it will be sold?

That is correct, no badge will be on the HHKB version.

GB will be going through my site Thocc.Supply and time frame will be 4 weeks. A soft cap will be around 250 units to keep production in reasonalbe time frames.

This is gorgeous, and I have a certain attachment to the word "hello" so I am very tempted. Bummed there will be no badge though, I quite liked it. Got some pondering to do with my wallet...

Thats awesome. Now I just need to find what to do with my drop e-white one so I can grab this beige case. Speaking of the drop case will the usb daughterboard of this run be compatible with that case (like screw placement the same?)
