1. super recessed port? can we see another angle?
2. what happened to the plate render? could we see a stand-alone plate render?
3. adjusted front-height? EKH?
4. overall mass?

Is it just me or is there really little information in this post?

Firstly thanks for your comment! Agreed we missed a bit of important information its our first IC post and we overlooked some stuff, but we will be updating the posts as things progress with more information. For your questions, the port is being slightly changed in the next round of prototypes but it is a bit recessed but nothing that would cause any issues or concern. Here is an image of the first brass prototype plate https://imgur.com/a/vRXzf52. The board has a front height of 19mm with a high profile of 7.5mm and an unbuilt weight of 3.6 lbs.

What is the material of the light grey part underneath the keyboard?

It is aluminum!

I don't think I've come across a board before which checked all of my boxes of what I'm looking for until now. Hoping with all the thoccs in my heart I can get a white one come GB.

Seriously, amazing job, Rocket Gang! I'll be spreading the Rocket Keyboards gospel.

I understand sound is a preference, but that is the one thing that is keeping me from supporting this, it sounds so hollow.

Just the back the bottom is aluminum :)

Please don't judge too harshly on that first typing test. We admit it was our first time recording one, and that was done in a hollow room with the CAMERA microphone. We are awaiting R2 prototypes and will be uploading much better ones and hope you change your mind :) we appreciate the feedback.
