Title: [IC] Godspeed75 - The Speedster Themed 75% (GB Date, Proxies and Pricing!)
Post by: fropsie on Mon, 11 November 2019, 02:07:07
"I am judge, jury and executioner. So I call myself... Godspeed."

Introducing the Godspeed75Designed by fropsie & BlindAssassin111
 
Inspired by the antihero speedster Godspeed, the Godspeed75 is a 75% top mount keyboard featuring a USB-C daughterboard and USB-A hub.
The minimal design of the board is based off of the sleek and simple look of the golden villain.

Updates

1/10/2020
After looking through many responses, as well as taking in votes from the IC form, some big changes have been made to the board itself, as well as what is offered for it.

What's to come



Colorways & RendersScroll down to see what the top of the case looks like with keycaps on!

Godspeed edition
Themed after the antihero's iconic Gold and White suit, it only makes sense to feature the same colors on the keyboard inspired by him.

Zoom edition
Based on the corrupt speedster Zoom, this edition takes the sleek black of the suit with use of a PVD Blue accent to match that of his synthesized speed.

Velocity edition
In order to incorporate the general theme of these fallen speedsters thirst for more speed, it only seemed appropriate to make a variant of the board named velocity, represented by clear polycarbonate and nickel accents.

Big chin and top bezels with thin sides, just how I like it :p

Great to see a POM option for plate given it's unique sound characteristics, and although compact 75% layout usually not for me, it looks great!

Now all we need is SA godspeed renders on it ;)

Introducting the Godspeed75Designed by fropsie & BlindAssassin111
Might want to correct that really quickly.

I see them symmetrical Dixie blockers. Still not a fan 🤐

I get you're trying to keep the design plain as hell, but it could use a subtle design to tie it together a bit more than just the name (which I too would change), colorway, and cute lightning bolt.

Also RIP ISO bois ☠️

For those of you who do not know who Godspeed is, he is a fictional character appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. August Heart was established as a detective and one of The Flash (Barry Allen)'s best friends on the police force. When his brother is murdered and the man he suspects is exonerated, he becomes vengeful and eventually gains speed-based superpowers. Donning the identity of Godspeed, Heart becomes a vigilante bent on killing criminals instead of incarcerating them, serving as an antithesis to the Flash. He has been portrayed as both a supervillain and an antihero in the comic books and adapted media since his introduction in 2016.

I love The Flash tv show and can't wait to get this board!

Should we diss every WKL TKL the comes out for using the SSK's layout too? I don't believe that layouts need to be credited or claimed by anyone.

Its just too simple. There is no real design language here, and you are using a few designs similar to the Bauer. Pass. Theres just nothing notable about it.

First and foremost, I didn't design the board, more so just helped fropsie iron it out and helped with my time and skill, So not defending the decisions for the design.

I don't understand where the mentality in the community came from about how you can't have something that remotely looks like something else that no one owns rights to or invented (not actually copying anything unless you actually use someones design to make products). Dixie did use symmetrical blockers on the bauer (looks good, and he did so for a good reason), but he didn't invent symmetry or the blocker or the symmetrical blocker (WKL is the first for all 3 of those, I believe we need to credit IBM here for that) he just made the blockers on his board symmetric for aesthetics which wasn't a thing in 65% boards. Symmetric blockers exist on all WKL TKLs, just because the lockers aren't 1u, doesn't mean they don't accomplish the same purpose aesthetically. Just because it was used in a similar fashion doesn't mean it was a copy, or use without credit (remember he owns no rights to it, and didn't invent it) making something symmetric doesn't require crediting someone who did the same action for a similar purpose.

If you don't like the design that is fine, but don't spread that someone invented something they didn't just because you saw them use it once. Those blockers aren't a necessity on this design or the bauer (could have used another cap instead), but they were both design decisions made because of the preference of the look, neither is a copy of anything. If you wish to call anything a copy you must cite the invention of every single design that invented the feature you used in the design of the board all the way back to the invention of the type-writer and similar devices or the invention of things like fillets, chamfers, aluminum alloys, anodizing, etc. Being pedantic for the sake of being pedantic isn't needed.

Please respect the fact this is an IC and not a witch hunt.

I agree that the F row should be staggered to break up the bulky top that most 75% are.

Post by: ilemondrop on Mon, 18 November 2019, 10:07:42
Echoing some of people's thoughts. I like the board, but also think a staggered function row could make it less cluttered, I don't even use those additional keys gained as is. USB-A passthrough is dope, PVD is a huge pain in the ass from what I've seen and simplifying the offering will save everyone time and suffering. Lastly, I believe the whole "copying Dixie" idea is ridiculous, the community is too fixated on this mentality.

Good luck with the IC!

Please respect the fact this is an IC and not a witch hunt.

I think it's more ignorance than malice on their (the critics) part, esp. if they're not particularly familiar with boards and the Bauer is simply the first time they've seen that.

Are the group buys all going up on the same date? Zfrontier is meant to be on holidays until the 30th of Jan.

UPDATES:
Board has been redesigned in order to look less like a brick, making it more appealing and unique in the process.
The death of speed (Black/Gold) Colorway has been removed due to a lack of appeal, receiving less than 10% of the total votes.
The 3 current color ways will be the final colorways to stick to the board!
 
The next things to do are:
  • Order Prototypes
  • Get final pricing of the board + accessories
  • More renders
  • Finalize GB date

GB date and current vendors have been announced!!!
The group buy will be launching on Friday the 24th of January and will sell for $380 + Shipping per board!
Our current vendors are:
TheKey.Company - https://thekey.company/
zFrontier - https://en.zfrontier.com/
Deskhero - https://www.deskhero.ca/

New vendor added!
Daily Clack - https://dailyclack.com/

Just want to ask, how big will be the packaging? It's a factor to consider for me if I want to order from a US proxy or order from zFrontier.

Couple questions...

(this is probably super nooby) Is it plate-mount or pcb mount in regards to switches??

Does anybody  know if YOK panda switches would work on this type of PCB?

Is there room in the case for a foam or rubber dampener?

Am I simple minded or was this supposed to launch yesterday?

Looking at the EU proxy specifically.
