  • Is there a gap between the bottom of the keyboard and the table?
  • Is it a custom PCB? Or does it use generic 60% PCB like DZ60?
  • The IC form mentions underglow. Where will the underglow be located?

I really like this. I'm a big 60% fan and brutal60 owner (fairly similar design). A few comments:
  • I am not a fan of universal plates, imo best option would be to release plate files and then have a few options in terms of plates that will suit most people eg standard ANSI, tsangan ANSI and tsangan ISO ?
  • I like that the outer most plate tabs are nearer the ends, on the brutal60 they are more central and with more flexible plate materials like POM it flexes very inconsistently
  • I also really like the half backspace, its something different but wont require kits to have special keys to support this board

Expanding on my plate point: even if you go 1 or 2 materials for the plate to simplify your options, but with a fixed layout it'll make a much more premium board.
