Design for MK Enthusiast

Greetings! This is Chao. Entergogo is a new startup brand which focuses on providing cool mechanical keyboards. As I usually working mobile with surface or iPad, a custom 60% wireless keyboard with QMK and hot-swap is my dream. So I'm trying to make it happen. Please check the design prototype https://imgur.com/a/OLBqnv3

Main Features:
  • Hot-swappable
  • Fully programmable via QMK
  • CHERRY MX switch, KAILH Box Switch or other switches
  • Wireless via Bluetooth
  • Hefty CNC Aluminum case
  • PBT Keycaps
  • Standard ANSI and ISO layout

We would like to hear more ideas from the community, please check the link if you have an interest. https://forms.gle/k5vH7xjbqYUuQ48dA

Time estimated.
  • Get a 3D sample about July 5th, 2019
  • Get the final sample about July 31st, 2019
  • Order production about Aug 10th, 2019
  • Shipping on Oct 10th, 2019

Cool! I have some questions:

In addition to the USB port, are those two other ports on the side? What are they for?

Are the three indicator lights on the side programmable RGB?

Are the LEDs for the switches also hot swappable, like how KPRepublic has done with their XD75re LED sockets? They are sold seperately from the PCB itself: https://kprepublic.com/products/xd75re-gold-plated-hot-swap-socket-for-3mm-leds-234-leds-custom-mechanical-keyboard-75-keys-gh60-kle-planck-hot-swappable

Hey, thanks for your attention.

1. Yes, besides the USB-C port, there are two other switches on the side, one for Bluetooth connection, another one is the battery on/off. (1000mAh lithium battery inside)
2. No, they are not programmable RGB. Is it necessary for you?
3. This one was designed without LED backlit, after serious discussion, we decided to sacrifice the led backlit which make the keyboard battery can last more than 30 or 40 days.

Btw, here invite you to join our survey for the GG60-Pro, appreciate your feedback. https://forms.gle/k5vH7xjbqYUuQ48dA

Looks nice! Although you say battery life should be 30-40 days which is great, I'd go for a bigger battery, 2000 mAh if it can fit.

Also please correct your description slightly where you say "Kailh Choc Box switches" - you meant to say "Kailh Box switches". "Kailh Choc switches" are low profile switches with incompatible pinout (it is possible to make universal PCB, but not including hotswap).

Thank you for your comments.
We will consider using a 2000mAh battery, will update here about the end of July.
Sure, I will change the description soon.
