[IC] Model OLED | GB Starts on 2024.1.12

(1/6) > >>

Hi guys. We've been dedicated on our next keyboard for the whole year. Finally we can bring up some good news.
The great IBM Model M has been the keyboard that we wanted to remake the most, and now we make it. Here we present to you the "Model OLED".

Model OLED shares the same ergonomic curve design that brings you a wonderful typing experience, even without a wrist rest. There's also a retro OLED pushbutton as a F13 key on top right corner.
Want a more retro vibe? Please turn on the solenoid that hides in the case to decorate your typing.

Model OLED top case comes with two colors: Industrial Grey and Vintage Beige. Both of them combined with a chromium plated bottom case. Every keyboard will be put into a carrying case and be delievered safetly to you.

Very nice. Rush Rush.
Is the PCB curved as well?

No. We made it able to combine with the curve.
More photos will be updated for detailed reference gradually. :)

The polished weight looks great. Is it stainless steel or PVD?

Interested in seeing how this sounds/builds altogether. Will keep an eye on the IC :thumb:

Will there be options for a different bottom plate?
