The first iteration will be in polycarbonate with a brass bottom weight.
The case and plate are compatible with the original Alice. The USB cutout supports both USB-mini and USB-C.

A mini group buy will be run for brass and/or Alps-compatible plates based on GB participant preference.

PCB:
Designed by Upas of Cannonkeys.com from Yuktsi's open-source layout
Arm processor
USB-C
Can be programmed with QMK.
Full LED support.
RGB underglow is pre-soldered.

Cost:
$390 for the kit, which includes case, PCB, plate, PVD brass weight, screws, and bump-ons.

Oh I mean current California time. Adjusted thank you. It’s PDT now. I think the conversions still work though. Please verify for yourself. Thank you!

This ain't a judgment on you, but I feel like we should just set a rule in this board that times should be communicated in GMT (or some other arbitrary time zone) just for clarity's sake

(for the record I think you've been doing a fantastic job running your ICs and this GB so far, keep up the great work)

Just out of curiosity, is there a qmk layout lurking around for this already?

No it should be just a little bit longer. Also it screws in from the inside of the case.
