Hello!

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.

The group buy is limited to 50 total boards for the purpose of a high quality and a relatively fast turnaround to the buyers (90 days projected).
Half the slots are available to FCFS.

stepped/non-stepped caps lock

Plates:
Done by OneFiveNine (159) of Projectkeyboard.com

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.
Shipping invoices will be sent out after final QC is completed and kits are ready to ship. Each buyer can choose their preferred method of shipment.

90 days

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.

Half of them are already claimed by the private slots. So, there are really only 25 fcfs spots up for grabs.
