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?

Would rotary encoder support be an option? Would love a BDN9 with an alu case, and that would fit the bill just right

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.

Regards,

Eric

Hello,
Yes, I choose single color led to keep the PCB as small as possible for 9 keys.

Even though it doesn't match anything in my setup, I'm definitely in if it's below $100.
