Post by: EricArts on Tue, 28 May 2019, 14:19:08
TREASURE TYPE-9 ( SERIES II )


Hello to all,
I am is Eric from Treasure, Industrial Designer from France ( https://www.instagram.com/treasuretreasure.co/ ).
This new project is the follow up of my first macropad keyboard of last year ( Macropad Type-9 :  https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=91252.0 & macropad.co (http://macropad.co)), in a new and improved version.

Treasure Type-9 is stylish metal macropad keyboard with a lot of keys in the smallest form factor.
On the technical side, the Treasure Type-9 ( Series II ) is now enterly solderless, as it have Kailh hot swap stockets and smd leds already on the PCB.
The kit will be sold with 9 DSA keycaps, a travel case and an USB Type-C to A cable; so you just have to bring your keyswitches !

The aim of this interest check is to find how many people are interested, and discuss about color / finish options.

Having purchased the original Type-9, it was an awesome little macropad with amazing quality, and I feel somewhat underrated in the community.

Great to see most of the suggestions from the community implemented into Series II.  :thumb:

For the polished Stainless Steel versions, what are the steel grade you'll be specifying? And is there any coating on the chrome version?

Thanks for the support Windeh, i am glad you liked the original version :thumb:. It was a very limited run
Concerning stainless steel grade and coating, i am currently in discussion in this regard with the supplier, I will have the answer next week.   

Interested, depending on final pricing :)

Ok great, final pricing will depend on quantity, i will keep you informed.

Hello uood5, no rotatory encoder option is planned for this product.

Hello to all,

I just recieved the PCB pre-production model.
and I am reviewing the cases prototypes from different suppliers
Same for the Packaging and assembly PCB.

Update : For the case it will most likely be PVD Finish Brass instead of Stainless Steel.
I will keep you updated for the definitive material choice

EDIT: Reread through and caught that the LEDs aren't RGB to save space - will we have the option to shut them off via QMK or etc?

Hello to all

PVD color coating is done - The color+mirror effect are absolutely beautiful, more pictures soon.
I am also in the process of giving compatibility to VIA, to have the complete "plug & play" experience.
Next is text engraving, to display the "Treasure Type-9" name 

Thanks for your support.

I would have preferred to announce it myself, instead of by a screenshot of a private message ;D but yes the initial target date is April.
But based on the current France situation, this can change, I will keep you informed of the schedule.

Prices will be revealed shortly before GB.

 My apologies. We were just so excited that we started speculating on when the GB is. A lot of posting on instagram and everyone can't just wait! I should've stayed quiet and think twice before doing once.  :(

Thanks to all.
The feets are custom compression molded parts

I'm in for at least 1, possibly 2 depending on price and finish options. Are there any plans to offer any matte finishes, like matte black? Also, does anyone know what the price of the previous version was, for reference? And lastly, would it be possible to order them with extra feet, for when the silicone wears out?

Not gonna lie, the render of DSA Dots has me more interested than the macroboard itself, but nonetheless pretty sweet design! Probably going to get one for sibling's birthday present xD

When will this hit GB? I was hoping it would hit this month. I need a black or grey one in my life.

No plans for matte black for now, and yes we will provide extra feets on demand !
Prices on GB opening

Thanks for the support, a delay for the GB opening is to expect. France is still under lockdown
I will update when the situation evolves.

Packaging looks great! I like the minimal and clean feel of it all.

I totally understand the GB delays due to current world situations. Nothing really to do but wait it out.
