Title: [IC] GMK Apollo - Group buy starts Feb 25th! (PRICING RELEASED!)
Post by: octix on Mon, 28 October 2019, 15:42:30
GMK APOLLO


"One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind" - Neil Armstrong


I would like to present to you GMK Apollo, a keyset that I have been working on for some time now.

Inspired by the Apollo missions, this keyset revolves around the moon. It pays homage to the greats of the past and looks towards the future of space travel. I tried my best to incorporate the colors of the moon and the dark sky into this set with three Pantone colors serving as the alphas, modifiers and accent keys.


Group Buy will start Feb 25th and end March 25th. Save the date!


Here's the color palette which was used for a visual reference:

The alphas look a little bit like Ashes alphas, but with a more green tint in them. I don't really see that much similarity other than that. I'm loving all these other gray sets that are coming out, it seems you can't really go wrong with making a gray keyset! I'll be looking forward to this one! That deskmat is really cool! :)

Yes, maybe if you remove the flame and scale the whole thing up ever so slightly?

Very interesting set! I like it a lot, the one confusing point is the desk mat. The set is named Apollo but it looks like a broken apart space shuttle in the desk mat, doesn't really seem to line up to me. I'm not saying you should change it, but maybe consider an alternative deskmat similar to the banner picture you have with the lunar horizon, minus the text of course, I think that would look really nice. Other sets have done 2 desk mats before with decent success.

I like the set a lot, and I like the desk mat, but I have a problem with them being put together. The mat depicts a fictional space disaster, maybe inspired by the movie Gravity. In contrast, notwithstanding the Apollo 1 fire, that program was a resounding success to be celebrated. I'd really recommend a different illustration on the mat. Maybe a render of the Earth as seen from the moon, with a lunar lander on the surface in the foreground.

Yeah, this has been the main source of feedback. I think I've decided to have a new deskmat design which will be in the same design style as this one. Instead, it will be of the moons surface, similar to the signature of the set, but more refined. The current deskmat will be run separately to this, so you will be able to get one or the other, or even both if you so choose!
Thanks for the feedback :)

In essence, yes. The current one shown had some continuity errors regarding Apollo. I saw this forthcoming, as the different objects donít represent the Apollo missions as much as Iíd like them to. The current one will be running separately (due to the amount of interest shown towards it) at the same time or possibly even earlier (Iíll keep the IC posted on that). A new deskmat is in the works as Iíve mentioned and that will be released along with the set.
Hope that answers your question.
Best,

The 40s/Ortho kit is darn near perfect -- 1.25 R3 enter and two 2.25 spacebars are excellent inclusions. Are the 1.75 space keys convex? they don't look like it in the render. If not, could they be made convex? yes? please?

Also, some gmk sets are also starting to include 1.25u convex spacebars (e.g. camping in japan, coral) -- putting one in the 40s kit would be insanely awesome, though making the one in the spacebars kit convex would be good too.

Nice work on the whole set!

I love those novelties! Please donít change them, the only one that probably should is the rocket tbh. Maybe remove the flame and have bolder lines? Just an idea.
That deskmat too, amazing!
Great job on the whole set.

I like the set a lot, and I like the desk mat, but I have a problem with them being put together. The mat depicts a fictional space disaster, maybe inspired by the movie Gravity. In contrast, notwithstanding the Apollo 1 fire, that program was a resounding success to be celebrated. I'd really recommend a different illustration on the mat. Maybe a render of the Earth as seen from the moon, with a lunar lander on the surface in the foreground.

Yeah, this has been the main source of feedback. I think I've decided to have a new deskmat design which will be in the same design style as this one. Instead, it will be of the moons surface, similar to the signature of the set, but more refined. The current deskmat will be run separately to this, so you will be able to get one or the other, or even both if you so choose!
Thanks for the feedback :)

This set is looking better everyday.  Glad you're changing up the deskmat.  I think what you're proposing to have it match closer to the signature is a cool idea.

Thank you :)
Yeah. That will be the plan. There was enough interest for a deskmat like that in the feedback form, so itís only right to go ahead with it.
So in essence, there will be 2 deskmats?

In essence, yes. The current one shown had some continuity errors regarding Apollo. I saw this forthcoming, as the different objects donít represent the Apollo missions as much as Iíd like them to. The current one will be running separately (due to the amount of interest shown towards it) at the same time or possibly even earlier (Iíll keep the IC posted on that). A new deskmat is in the works as Iíve mentioned and that will be released along with the set.
Hope that answers your question.
Best,
Thanks for the response and clarification - glad to see the existing deskmat will be offered at some point.

I love the idea of this set. A couple suggestion, some of which has already been noted but I figured I’d reiterate. The mat is nice, but I’d suggest looking at the activities of the Apollo astronauts when they were on the surface- I think it was Charlie Duke who attempted to do some activities that mimicked the Olympic Games that were occurring at the time, and nearly fell over (which could have been serious injury or death). There’s someone who hit a golf ball up there as well (I’m drawing a blank on the name...).

I second the idea of a Saturn V rocket for the enter key that does not have a engine trail.

I’d also like to recommend a set of novelty modifier keys of a brownish/copperish/grayish look that show the mineral composition of the marť, which is present in some high resolution photos. I do some Astrophotography as a hobby, I’ll try to attach a picture. Photo credit: me, Instagram.com/mattkeysphoto

Anywho, great set, I look forward to it!

Cheers

Now that you say that, I think copper colored enter and escape highlight keys might be better than the white (or in addition to them). The lander had so much exposed copper on it, and it could have a double meaning.

Yeah I think it would look awesome with some gold-ish accents to pay homage to the moon rover. I was possibly thinking of looking into metal gold colored spacebar and escape keys etc. that could be purchased as a kit of their own.
Love to hear feedback though :)

That would be a really cool idea for a Rama/Salvun cap since then it would actually be metal then.

Regarding the deskmat: I agree, the lunar surface would have to be a must on the mat, I like the idea of activity on it, Iíll see what I can do.
And regarding the modifier keys: I agree with you on this, having some brown/copper accents or modifiers would be awesome for a set like this. I think it would make it Ďpopí. Iíve also got lots of feedback to add gold into the set to represent the Apollo lander, so if there is enough interest I may go with that one.
Thanks for your support, and great photos! You are very talented.

Do you think that the negative space of the dark sky is good? Or should there be something there to fill it: E.G: The Command Service Module.

I think icon mods suit this set the best, and therefore should be in the base kit. If adding a kit for text mods makes people happy then by all means add one, but please keep the base kit as is in that regard.

Also have you considered doing R5 bottom row? The molds exist now after Carbon R2 and are criminally underutilized in my opinion :)

Love the theme and the colors are nicely done and very neutral!

I'll add another vote for a second 'B' key. In the base would be great, but the in spacebars or even in the 40's kit would also be fine.

For my ne iso avail comment, I'd love to have a R3 1.25u Control key (similar to what GMK Darling has in its 40's kit). It's perfect for an HHKB-style 40 percent layout, with Tab on the top left mod and then Control in that left R3 mod. I realize it's pretty unorthodox but hey, it's still a key I'd love to see :P

Hey,

The 🅱️ key will certainly be coming to either the base or spacebar kit to support Alice functionality seeing how many acrylic Aliceís there we out there now.
As for the R3 1.25u control key, I can definitely see what I can do, if I did add it, it would probably be to the 40ís/ortho.

If you have any other questions let me know.

Yeah loving the deskmat in person too! It feels very nice.
Also, yes, I am in the process of designing a less...tragic deskmat design. I should have it done by someone in a few days to a week. As I said previously it will follow the same design but be of the moons surface with a lander, etc.

Also, yes, I am in the process of designing a less...tragic deskmat design. I should have it done by someone in a few days to a week. As I said previously it will follow the same design but be of the moons surface with a lander, etc.
Thanks for your interest :)

In my opinion I donít think the scene should be too complex, I think less is more imo. Canít wait to see the revised design

Yeah, definitely donít want it over complicated.
Noted!

I find the way you split the set into Modules very clever: On the one hand, looking at the Command Module, the majority of ANSI users won't have to pay the "ISO tax" :thumb:. On the other hand, with ISO and numpad in the Telemetry Module combined, this extra kit is much more likely to reach MOQ, as opposed to a lonely ISO kit. AFAIK we are talking MOQ=100 here for the extra kit! Clever, this should work out fine, I am curious how this develops. (In my short time here at geekhack, I have not encountered this kind of split before.)

Oh, and can't wait to see the RAMA renders!!

Hey thanks for such positive feedback on the set! And yes, I didnít want to completely forget about the lonely iSO users out there ;) (just kidding)

As for the RAMA cap, a design has been met and renders are here, just wanting to get revised renders with glow in the dark infill, stay tuned for that.

This is the first RAMA cap I consider buying, good lookin', black with GID :thumb:

However, I have to concur with the following statements:
I think the the  visor should go all the way to the top, like the suits in the Alien movie
...
Real life space helmets so far are fixed to the suit, while the astronaut's head can be turned inside. Thus, the visor should provide a wide field of view.

...
Well, imo I still think it needs to dissociate itself from looking like a motorcycle helmet
Having read the latter comment, the design now looks like a cross between space- and motorcycle helmet to me :p

I like the current design, but it is more artistic than realistic - whatever you prefer :thumb:

Sorry for the slow-ish updates. Iím out of town so itís pretty hard to be on top of things.
Group buy date has been finalised for February 25th as it slots in nicely between sets. Iíve tried to minimise conflict between this set and others so this date should work well!
Final deskmat art for the second deskmat is coming along, but the artist who I used for the first original design is moving slowly. Iíll update this thread and post when I do get that in.
Pricing for everything including kits, RAMA, deskmat, etc. will be coming very soon, Iím just needing to make some very small tweaks.
Thanks again for the support, have a nice day :)

Wanted to just post a quick update today:

1) Just received a sample of the artwork for the second deskmat, will update with renders soonô️
2) Getting quotes from GMK in the next week or so, I'll figure out pricing soon after, just waiting on one final kit render to finish.
3) Pricing for everything else, i.e: deskmats, artisans, RAMA, etc. is being finalized
4) Artisan collabs are being finalised, got some exciting stuff planned!
5) Other miscellaneous collabs are also happening, keep those eyes peeled

Thanks again for all the kind words of support so far :) Canít wait for this group buy!

Bumping to let you all know that the novelty kit needed some minor tweaks to be able to be manufactured by GMK. You can see the old/new renders and compare them to see the difference, although it's quite minor.

We also have the wonderful Salvun working with us to bring a brass engraved and coated keycap. See pic below :)

I'm a mech keyboard fan but Always both something on the shelf.
Looking in building a keyboard myself and one of the hardest things looked like getting a nice keycap set. I think I found it :p.

I'm a huge fan fan of space related things (and Kerbal space program :p), I just need this set :). Keep up the good work.

are you going to have GMK match to Pantones? I know GMK is better at matching RALs, so you might wanna look for similar RALs just in case they have trouble matching the Pantones.

Two questions:

2) Is there a coiled cable maker who's going to make cables to go along with Apollo

Great set ! GLWB

1) There should be! Need to confirm everything with Yohan first
2) In the process of getting a coiled company onboard as we speak. Definitely would like one :)

Please please please make a LEMO version available, LEMO connector would be so perfect with the space theme!

Cables: Been chatting with Space Cables for a while on a collaboration, he should send over some sample pics before the GB begins :)
Deskmats: Finalizing the design, Iíve some of it in my discord, but after a bit of review Iíll need to get it tweaked to look better. Stay patient, but I should have it final soon.
are you going to have GMK match to Pantones? I know GMK is better at matching RALs, so you might wanna look for similar RALs just in case they have trouble matching the Pantones.

Iím using Pantones  only because I couldnít find any good matching RALSs. Chips will be sent to GMK as fast as possible to speed up the color matching process.

In all likelyhood, no, there will not be. However if you're looking for a blank keycaps set that matches the novelties (which are mod colored) then look to Keyreative's ABS blank sets (https://thekey.company/collections/keycaps/products/keyreative-abs-blank-cherry-keycaps). You might find something there.

Yes! I have a few onboard. Specifically C.Y.O, Sodie Caps, Salvun and Alpha Keycaps. There will also be a form open for Dusty Keycapsí Lunar cap during the GB period. Still figuring out which ones are public/private raffles.

So the Rama is shine through? Might get it for moon dust. Haha

It has a glow in the dark infill which will glow, there is no shine through however!

I'd say this is more of a cooler toned dolch. They are similar though.

I am placing Ashes at a 8 month delivery time from GB ending, that number could potentially go up. I would put Apollo in line with the same delivery time. As for the rumor, it is 100% true, not a rumor, that GMK has a new tooling machine that they have been working to set up. They have been trying to set it up for a few months now so it's only a matter of time before it starts working on new caps. I'm sure there is a lot of calibration and QC testing with it before they can start using it for actual keysets. I'm super excited for this GB and can't wait for it to start!

Yep I think Iíd agree with Tyson here, the lead time should be somewhere around 8 months at this stage. But as he said, GMK has been acquiring a new tooling machine/machines so we could see a better lead time on that regard. But to be conservative Iíd say 8 months.

Just wondering how much efficient "the new machine" is, and how it can help with current timings. Can 8 months be reduced to 5-6? or even crazier 3-4? - that would be amazing).
