This is just what I've been looking for! In for at least one so long as the price is reasonable.

EDIT: Reread through and caught that the LEDs aren't RGB to save space - will we have the option to shut them off via QMK or etc?

Yes the SMD Leds are white, and we have the option to control them via QMK.

UPDATE 12-MAR-2020 :

Hello to all

PVD color coating is done - The color+mirror effect are absolutely beautiful, more pictures soon.
I am also in the process of giving compatibility to VIA, to have the complete "plug & play" experience.
Next is text engraving, to display the "Treasure Type-9" name 

Thanks for your support.

Eric




Thank you!  :thumb:
April then!

I would have preferred to announce it myself, instead of by a screenshot of a private message ;D but yes the initial target date is April.
But based on the current France situation, this can change, I will keep you informed of the schedule.

Any idea of the price?

Prices will be revealed shortly before GB.

Oui, sans faute ! When is the next meetup ?

My apologies. We were just so excited that we started speculating on when the GB is. A lot of posting on instagram and everyone can't just wait! I should've stayed quiet and think twice before doing once.  :(

There might be a typo on the picture showing the Blanc Cermique finish (should be Blanc Céramique right) ?

I'm in for at least 1, possibly 2 depending on price and finish options. Are there any plans to offer any matte finishes, like matte black? Also, does anyone know what the price of the previous version was, for reference? And lastly, would it be possible to order them with extra feet, for when the silicone wears out?

Not gonna lie, the render of DSA Dots has me more interested than the macroboard itself, but nonetheless pretty sweet design! Probably going to get one for sibling's birthday present xD

No plans for matte black for now, and yes we will provide extra feets on demand !
Prices on GB opening

Thanks for the support, a delay for the GB opening is to expect. France is still under lockdown
I will update when the situation evolves.

Packaging and merch preview :
A nice little magnetic packaging box

Packaging looks great! I like the minimal and clean feel of it all.

I totally understand the GB delays due to current world situations. Nothing really to do but wait it out.

This is great.  I have a Series I macropad and thinking I might pick this one when this is available.
