To help reduce the pressure of choosing options and changes to orders, I have split the group for Kepler into two parts.
  • "Kepler" secures your preorder spot.
  • "Kepler - Options" defines your kit options.
If you would like to reserve your spot but choose your options later, checkout with "[PREORDER] KEPLER" in your cart.
You will be allowed to change your "KEPLER - OPTIONS" and any additional extras until the deadline.

That's a whole lot of milk money we're talking here. I'm curious what constitutes that price tag if you don't mind educating me.

Good luck everyone. 850 is way out of bounds for me, but it sure is a pretty good looking board.

Glowing review by Quakemz on his topclack buildstream. Said it may be the best keyboard he's ever typed on (or words to that effect).

May I see the silver bottom please? Still can't decide which color to go for.

Also, will the silver interior have rainbow effect as well?

Hmmm, so if you pay means you got a spot? Or will it refunded back to you if you are outside 50

There was probably 50 in the inventory, so when all are gone, it'll sell out and become unavailable.

If you want a spot, buy ASAP as it may sell out soon.

I reserved a spot last night and picked my options this morning. I dig the idea of being able to choose your options later. So hyped for this board!

I agree. Plenty of time to think about options is a nice change of pace.

My guess is that, if you’re wondering about this, there are unlikely to be any spots after Nathan Kim builds a prototype on his stream this evening pst time. I went hard and early and I was over the moon to see and hear it last night.

How I wished the Kepler would be numbered to make it extra special.

Regardless, I am in the Kepler camp.  Just still debating color and WKL or not.

I need a TKL and this certainly will not disappoint.

Took me a while to mull it over but I am glad I talked myself into it before it was too late

Happy to see that they sold out it seems (according to the website)

The all silver prototype is being made and it won't be possible to have the rainbow effect.

This slipped completely under my radar. You mention 10 extra keyboards for contingency. Once OG group buyers are settled will you offer extras/b-stock?

I believe it was mentioned in the discord that extras will be sold once everything is fulfilled.

Saw the Kepler at keycon and I thought it looked, felt and (to the extent you could hear anything at keycon) sounded fabulous. Aesthetically, in particular, to my eyes it looked a lot less ominous and imposing irl than on photos - more subtle - which I appreciated. It was still prominent, but not overwhelming (which was a concern for me). The typing feel was wonderful and to my taste. Sound was harder to tell given how noisy it was at keycon, but I had no concerns.
