What options did you guys choose? I got Black and Silver... Probably should have gotten a color in there but it is what it is I guess.... just wanted to get in there and get one.

black/black :cool:

I don't see my name on that list, I didn't get in the top 10.

I'm hoping for the raffle though.

Lots of the high profile names enter everything (or nearly) so whilst they win some, they lose a fair few too.

Total names on list: 59
Total raffle + FCFS: 50


Again thank you to everyone for their support.

As Jae said, but also there's 59 names. Friends&Family are part of the list so having a list of over 50 likely means Flex accounted for them separately as to not influence your chances.

I'm putting the final order together, please DM me if you want to change, or need to know what you ordered (Please check email first).


To Confirm, the first colour in the order if the top colour, the other is the base. (ie. Onyx + Teal, would come with the Onyx top and Teal base).


Brass raffle is on hold, sorry, I'm awaiting information that is not yet forthcoming, it's still planned soon, sorry for the delay.


I will be re-raffling 3 spots over the weekend, these will be done offline and contact made / emails sent to the people drawn, there is no obligation to enter if you are drawn, but please get back to be asap to if you do not want the spot so i can move on to the next.


Order will be placed on Monday so you have a couple of days to get changes in.

Virgo GB update.
  • Orders are in with my CNC manufacturing partner, but as of right now, no aluminium has been cut but I have seen the CAM data so progress is being made. I believe they are catching up after the extended layoff, and should begin on the Virgo's soon.
  • I've received a revision prototype for the PCB which I am happy with and final orders will be placed on Monday for all GB PCB's.
  • Ancillary parts on order (Screws, Gaskets, JST's etc...) expected imminently.
  • Meeting with the packaging supplier Friday next week to go over the designs, and hopefully approve and order a batch.


Expected GB fulfilment remains Early August 2020 (Conservative estimate).


Thank you

Virgo GB update:


  • All parts are now in production. The manufacturer has completed the first pass on the Aluminium parts and has started on the Brass.
  • I've had fresh samples of the anodisation colours done and am very happy with the red and green, however, I will be asking them to redo the Aubergine (see below), to get closer to the Pantone requested.
  • For those who watched the Prototype build stream with Taeha Types, you will remember a fault with the engraving on the weight, this has been resolved.
  • the last meeting with the packaging supplier, I was not happy with the samples and have requested new, but they have now packed up work due to Covid-19, this will be picked up again when I can.



Expected Fulfilment remains Early August 2020, however much like the rest of the world, the UK has moved to tighter quarantine measures so please remain patient and I will keep updating here regularly.


Thank you

Sorry for not updating for a couple of weeks, a mix of waiting on deliveries and sorting out packaging for the Virgo meant there was not a lot to update with.

I have received Ano samples from the manufacturer and approved the final colours and finish for the boards. All CNC work is close to completion, next up is an inspection and sending for Ano.

Carbon fibre and FR4 plates are in.


Things are still progressing, and despite C19, I'm still hoping to hit the estimated fulfilment.

Great to see progress.  I didn't win the raffle and I also just missed out on the additional raffle.  I so wanted this board, so if anyone wants to give up their spot please let me know.  I particularly wanted the green if that helps but I would be happy with any colour.

Final colour samples from the manufacturer (Pics only).



Sorry for the potato quality here, but I'm very happy with the final colours, I hope you guys are too  :thumb:

Note, there is still some way to go with the GB, but so far so good, and I'll keep you all updated.

Hey all:

June 3rd Update:


Parts are starting to come in, I currently have all the Black and Silver parts in hand, with the Green and red on a boat, some purples needed to be re-made due to the manufacturers internal QC finding fault in a number of parts, but these should follow in the coming weeks.


PCB's have been delayed due and "accident in the storage facility", whatever that means, but I'm assured I will see them in the next couple of weeks.





So far so good on my initial QC  :thumb:

Please note: I'm planning on sending the shipping invoices out in July, for a hopeful delivery date in August. The original plan was to find the cheapest courier. However with the current state of international shipping, I will only provide an invoice for DHL, buyers are more than welcome to arrange there own delivery service, but I won't take responsibility for the shipping if that is the case.  Feel free to DM me or contact me on discord at any time if you want to discuss it. I will email buyers directly with this information too.

I have been regularly asked to produce a Numpad to match the Virgo, which I have, prototypes are due in a couple of weeks. Again I will email details to all Virgo purchasers if they are interested, but it is also open to anyone who wants on in an open GB to be held soontm I may push it a little more in the future, but for now, this paragraph will do.  ;)





One final thought... I know I have 2 other IC I am currently involved in. Please do not worry, my focus right now is Virgo, and Virgo alone, I will not be running anything else, before the Virgo is fulfilled.

Thank you all so much.

Black bottom is no brainer, but I can't decide what numpad top color to choose: same as the Virgo or get some contrast.

Here are the non-standard colors if anyone else is facing this first-world problem too :D

Red Hibiscus PANTONE 18-1762 TCX


Aubergine PANTONE 19-2311 TPX


Teal Green PANTONE 19-4922 TCX
