Is the plan for the knobs to be made by RAMA as well?

No plans yet, but we can ask them.

It depends. The knobs here were based off of Splitkb's design.

only per key rgb or also underglow for the polycarb case? :)

As of right now per key rgb without underglow

it would be so nice if you guys would manage to get underglow as well :) im looking for an "alice" style keyboard with arrow keys for so long now. that would be just perfect :) was close getting on the rukia polycarb GB but no arrow keys hold me back, glad i did, but the underglow looked amazing on that board :)

How much space is there between the pcb and the plate?

As per cherry spec the distance from the top of the plate to the top of the pcb is about 5mm

We're looking at potential vendors and prototype funding. Currently I'm finishing the Slice GB and then I will begin again on this project.

What are the encoders for?

     What are those letters and numbers on those square shaped things for? rofl....I had to. apologies if I offended, just a jokey-joke. On to the real....
     Knobs just beg to be touched and turned. Someone needs to design a rotary that has the same low weight pressure needed to engage the push button mechanic as a normal tactile/linear switch does so that we can have a keyswitch that does both....allow for easy typing AND acts as a knob. Hell, lets add RGB while we're at it. Oh why not, lets make the tip an OLED screen that can be customized to any image! Now we're cooking with week old pork fat....

     A hex shaped rotary switch that mimics exactly the push characteristics of a linear or tactile switch (or a linear/tactile switch that mimics exactly a rotary encoder's functions) along with addressable RGB strip/ring at bottom edge and an OLED screen on the switch face that is image/color addressable.

     If only I were a billionaire and could play with R&D....if only for most of us!!

  • Encoders Spread out.
  • Hot Swap or Soldered Option.
  • Sides cut to easily pick up.
  • Knobs or Switches on the right, you choose.
  • Knobs to come in 3 colors.
  • Most popular interest check colors rendered.

New renders looking great! Just another suggestion from myself, the chin on the front of the board feels slightly out of place because of the relative sharpness compared to the rounded aesthetic the corners, encoder and side cutouts. Maybe you could try :
1. rounding out the chin at these 3 points to match how the rest of the board looks (the quasi alice by qlavier is an example)
2. Making the corners and side cutouts sharper and less rounded to match the chin, thereby making the encoders stand out more!

Sorry if I seem overbearing haha just really excited for this board!

Those 3 points are rounded but less aggressively

Is there any chance those corners might be rounded more aggressively? I realize it's pretty far into IC, but I agree with gummybur on this; the design language is not super consistent as-is. It's still a very, very nice board! :D And I like the option to have so many encoders. That's what makes this unique.

Thanks. I haven't updated in awhile but prototypes will be coming soon. I respected Swiftrax initial design with a slightly more blocky look. Let's see how the prototypes turn out. Personally I really like this as it differentiates itself between other similar keyboards. As soon as I have the cases in hand, I'll post some pics then. Cheers.

Filled out the IC form, honestly really excited for this keyboard.
 
The triple encoder setup makes it really stand out from a lot of the designs I've looked at. From a practicality standpoint maybe a bit excessive, but if I can get them to work with Lightroom I certainly wouldn't complain.

Really looking forward to whatever this project turns into, the back and forth on feedback is cool to watch happen.

I haven't personally owned an Alice style keyboard before, what special caps are needed compared to what you'd get in like a base GMK set? Right off the bat I see short spacebars for sure

Thanks, I really appreciate the comment. Yep, spacebars kit, usually that's where the second b ends up as well. I'm currently adding underglow to the pcb so the polycarb version should be fun. I've always taken feedback from Geekhack especially. Closely listening to the people who will end up owning the keyboard is so important. After all, if you make recommendations, then buy the board, part of you ends up in the final result. Then in some small way you were the designer too. Even if an idea was rejected, it was at least thought about and I think that's really important as well. As soon as prototypes come in, I'll be making a big update. Meanwhile, enjoy this picture.  ;D

The prototypes have been made and went in for anodizing. I'm waiting for a message from the manufacturer for an update. The pcb is done and will be VIA compatible with VIA RGB control.

  • One prototype has already been built but is waiting for encoder parts. The rest of the prototypes are to follow.
  • We're sending the prototypes out to streamers this week.
  • Finalizing price and date
  • Start Group Buy
Here is a picture of a built prototype without encoders.

Yes. Black, White, Blue, Red, Polycarb, Smoke Polycarb, Combinations.

You can have an aluminum top with a polycarb bottom, for example. We're working out final design details. I'd like to see the weight smaller and more centered as to not interfere with the underglow, for example.

The prototypes look so good! When you say combinations, does this mean we can mix and match an alu top with a polycarb bottom?
