This is honestly the first split keyboard that gets my interest.

Likewise, you can put it together if you just want 1 board too :)

I really hope I can get a shot at buying one in the near future!

Well, if nothing else he can do multiple rounds if he's up for that.

But this is seriously one of the coolest boards ive ever seen. Might have to sell my kidneys, because this is my new dream board.


EDIT: Ok scratch that, Im selling a guitar to buy this!

Considering there are two active threads on this, I'd say we have a  contender for keyboard of the year.

That makes much more sense. I was wondering why it was so high.
I need more keyboards to hold all of these keycaps.

Yeah, frankly I don't see the need to also post on reddit. This was already just meant to be some small side thing, there's no need to bring hundreds more over here

PANDORA'S BOX.

**** man, haha. Well, in some ways this might be good. If a more mass produced model can be introduced, I think it'd create a lot of welcome business, but for something limited like this that's not as easy to produce, it just seems straining.

Of course, that said, you don't want either end, the limited, or more open (hypothetically speaking) model to be watered down at all because of overwhelming interest.

Like, I seriously never would've thought the second Octagon would've gotten 90+ orders placed, not with the first only having 27 orders. Just, wow.

The community is bustling and that's great!

In the end, I think Zefyr will handle this well, but I'm sure it's still stressful to see.

Meh. So far I've been lucky to spot just about every single kustom GB before the cut-off time.
I even caught the Janes.

I'm just more worried that Vermillion will take on more than he is willing; he seems to be doing that already.

We could've been Jane brothers :(

Posting this thread to Reddit can be taken a few ways... there are enthusiasts that only browse there, but have just as much interest as the rest of us in a keyboard like the VE.A; why should it be kept "exclusive" to Geekhack? I believe Vermillion was aiming to branch out internationally, and that certainly includes other communities.
Now whether he'll be able to control the demand with production remains to be seen.

Sorry. I would much rather have the Mira. Even if a third, and even better Jane, came out right now I would still say the same.
I'm also sorry for that derailing.

But yes, why should we contain this to Geekhack?
Vermillion is primarily a member of kbdlab and if anything, Geekhack should be blessed that he even bothered to come here.

I completely agree with this.

I'm not a fan of elitism, but I don't think Zefyr needs all of this attention right now. I can imagine it being flattering but also straining. He didn't foresee the interest on GH to begin with, let alone outside of this forum.

Furthermore, if there is enough interest in this and if I have the ability to do so, I may try and have a new case designed for this PCB.
Back when the Vergo Type. T was revealed I had a dream to make an aluminum case for this.
There are some improvements I could see added to the current housing, though, I admittedly know nothing about CAD.
