intro

This board got cloned twice before I got to release it so I kinda have to write this IC now.

availability

idk yet, message me on discord please

Going to preemptively mention that this keyboard will likely not be good for your wallet. I’m personally aiming for under $600 but we’ll see what happens when I get a vendor who knows more about this than me.

faq

More colour options?
Maybe? Depends on if DDS doesn’t charge me more and if vendors are cool with more SKUs.

Hotswap?
I’ve given Callie enough money and she will also extort me because she doesn’t want to make it. I highly recommend hitting up a local builder and getting your board millmaxed if hotswap is the route you want to take.

Polycarbonate case/plate?
PC cases kinda scare me after trying to fix warped horses for months. As for plate, I really only see myself offering alu since it works best with the leaf spring.

Thanks
More- Patty for using sugar mommy funds to help me prototype this
- calliah, but I’m still not running the keychain
- @_megrocks for enabling me and creating this
- Hatsune Miku for letting me use her as promotional material even though she’s not even my cat
- Susan and the rest of Mintlodica for using it in a render a couple times and getting me 200 Instagram followers in one day in what was basically a feline orbital strike at my target market
- literally everybody i led on by not doing anything with this
- Sena and Gus for helping with the journey, even if they couldn’t stay the whole way
