As others have said, your best bet is going to be making it yourself. If you haven't explored the Making Stuff Together subforum and dug up this resource, I recommend it as a good way to achieve what you're after.

Anyone else here with hope to see a Halo96 V2 as soon as possible?

Things that I'd like to see on it:
1. VIA/QMK supported
2. Barebones option
3. Southpaw version? Not sure if would be nice with their cramped layout
4. Priced under $160

This would be the closest to find the keyboard that I'm waiting or I may go with a Keychron V5 Max barebones and accept the fact that there is no keyboard with the features that I want yet.

Anyways, just checking if there is some hype for this one to happen.

What is it about the Halo96 that you can't find elsewhere? QMK is pretty easy to find these days. Southpaw isn't as common at that price point (that I know of). Pretty much every keyboard is barebones at one point or another :)

That layout is unique-ish but not so unique that I haven't seen competitive options. Basically what I'm getting at is: there are always alternatives. What are your "must haves"?

I guess, those are the things that I'm looking:

1. 100% or 90ish% layout
2. Support of VIA/QMK
3. Gasket Mounted
4. Hotswap
5. Wireless
6. No low profile

The ones that attended those criteria are:

1. Zoom98
2. Keychron V5/V6/Q5/Q6/Q12 (Max series)
3. Wind X98 R2
4. Odin R4

I couldn't find more. Not sure if I'm looking it right.

If NuPhy releases the Halo96 next version with VIA/QMK support then it would also be part of this list and if priced below the Keychron Q5 and Q6 for me it will be a winner.

Do you know about some other options?
