It's a good layout.It would be better if there were a Bluetooth version.


Can we get a more concrete answer on this? Is Bluetooth available at all? In the original post, it was available. Then an update said it was removed on the Polycarbonate version. But what about the aluminum version? Is it still available?

I'd love to have this as BT keyboard! Yes!

It's a good layout.It would be better if there were a Bluetooth version.

Agree! I understand there might be an interference but PC version might be a viable option for a bluetooth. It was stated though in the first update that the bluetooth has been removed unfortunately and there were a few who explicitly stated they would like to have a non-hotswap, non-bluetooth version.
I'd happily payed more for a blutooth version but I also understand that testing it and making it work just right would take considerable amount of time for the designers of the Bocc. It may not be worth the time and effort if community in general is happy with the board regardless of the blutooth available or not.

Again though, I'm with you on having a blutooth as an option :)

We are looking to see if we can offer one more kind of hot-swap PCB that is bluetooth compatible. The case itself has a notch for inserting battery in it, meaning that as long as there is a bluetooth compatible PCB, its all good. The problem is that shipping product with battery is extremely expensive due to the strict international shipping protocol regarding battery item. In light of that, if we do at last decide to offer hot-swap bluetooth compatible PCB in extras, you still have to get a battery somewhere else.

Are they already sold out? Or was there only a tiny window to get in on this?

don't worry the GB hasn't started yet so you can still get it

Oh awesome! Thanks.

As long as the battery can be purchased from somewhere it's absolutely not a concern for me.
I mean regular li-ion batteries like these can be purchased at any corner.
Any DIY online shop would have them.

In summary: without the battery you still have your usb keyboard. With the battery you have your usb keyboard and you can (if you want to) use bluetooth instead.
I'm absolutely up for such an option! I think that would be an absolute badass of a keyboard.

I wouldn't let "not being able to supply a battery" with the keyboard stop you from making Bluetooth PCB. In fact, batteries are so easily attainable these days from sites such as Aliexpress that I think that it shouldn't be a hinder at all.

I'm all for BlueTooth. Bring it on! BT4.0

Not to be rude, but do you have any prior experience of running keyboards gb before? I'm torn between this or NR65. On one hand, I prefer this design to NR65. On the other hand, NR65 gb runner is well known enough.

This is our first run. But, because of that - not saying others wouldn't, we are very devoting to our first run because it sets the cornerstone of our reputation. Although there isn't anything more we could say to make you feel more secured, all we can do is to strive our best to maintain an open and translucent platform where everyone would be able to know our progress, our challenges and a reciprocative communication channel that ensures both parties are on the same ground. This is also why we have a relatively elaborated and detail "Change log" and "Update Summary" section in hopes of letting all of you to know what's going on, and the bigger picture.

I think there is nothing more important than communication with your targeted customers at this phase of a group buy. Listen to the audience, tailor the product to them and create an excellent keyboard.

Just don''t go MIA on us like the DORO67 project. That's was a huge disappointment.

Understood. More color options would be nice, especially Teal or Cyan. Those two are quite popular recently with new boards.

the mounting system we proposed will be having the PCB screwed and locked in to the bottom case, while the plate will be screwed in and locked in place on the top case.Another thought we put into this design is that we hope that whoever appreciate hot-swappable PCB could easily change the plate by unscrewing it off the top case and swap it to another material to experience different typing feel. Last but not the least, user can enjoy the plateless set up on this mounting system as well.

- So if my understanding is correctÖ itís top-mounting the plate and tray-mounting the PCB. But it requires the right amount of space between the plate and the PCB such that the switches can sit properly. The tolerance seems hard to achieve
- If someone solders the switches, does she need to screw the PCB to the bottom? I guess no?
- If someone uses a hot-swappable PCB and wants to change the plate material, she would still need to pop out all the switches, unless she has the same 70 switches on the other plate already. Doesnít seem like an improvement either way.
- so I think it really only enables a plateless setup ó a tray mounted plateless setup ó which might not sound great imo.

Iím not against your design but if these details could be filled in thatíd be helpful.  :thumb:

Still super interested in this keyboard but need some more info on the mounting methods please

Iíve been learning that there have been quality issues when it came to electrophoresis coloring for other GBs of the past. Just wanted to know if steps will be taken to ensure BOCC wonít share the same fate, I really like that e-white option.

We noticed electrophoresis coating's flaws, which is why we will make sure the final product is coated with an extra protective scratch resistant coating on top of the original color coating. Although this serves as a defense layer, it does not guarantee nor prevent scratch marks from appearing on the case when it is struck with different degree of forces; and we cannot also ensure that the case will be protected from damages that may be caused during the shipment / handling of the courier service. That said, we will carefully examine all the cases and make sure it is in perfect state before we ship it out and make sure there is enough protection within the packaging; that's the best we could offer and hope that make you feel confident on it.

In this picture, there is a silver weight on the right side (almost cut off). I've also noticed that it is larger than the brass weights on the left. Is this a special weight? I'd love to have a larger weight that is longer on the bottom- Also I think it'll be more porportionate. Is this possible?

You can get a sand-blast brass plate on extra.

- Your understanding is correct. We will carefully monitor the tolerance in between to make sure its a feasible work for all setup.
- You could choose not to, but that defeats the sole purpose of this mounting system in the first place.
- Correct. But comparing to solder PCB, you wouldn't have to desolder all the switches to achieve plate swap.
- I will quote my explanation on Discord here - "Most of the mounting system, if not all, has their PCB alleviated in between cases. There is only 1 thing that consolidates the PCB's position, the plate, obviously, because most people will have their set up with a plate. Which is why sometimes there are many space in between PCB and bottom case, causing hollowness in typing sound or some people might find it not rigid enough and some would add a foam in between the PCB and bottom case in hopes of achieving a more singular bottom out typing sound. One of the reasons we implement this mounting system was that we hope to eliminate these flaws. Also, since the tray mounting points are on the edge, if you are looking to have a plate-less setup, the flex in the alpha would be more significant."

It should be just the camera angle problem, we didn't develop a special weight for BOCC. As for the request, since design is final now, we wouldn't change the weight size unfortunately - and that making it larger means more materials for weight, it entices increase in cost - which we believe many are avoiding it to get more expensive at this point. But thank you for your input.

Yes, this is merely a prototype that was developed before we received feedback and made amendments;
The final product will support both of the mentioned layout.

- BOCC PC prototype 90% done, PVD brass sideweight didnt match our standard, we have re-ordered it and waiting for a revised version.
- BOCC Alu prototype in the making
So, this plate doesn't support split backspace or split left shift...is this going to change?
Yes, this is merely a prototype that was developed before we received feedback and made amendments;
The final product will support both of the mentioned layout.
great! looking forward to the alu prototype!

New renders clearly show caps sitting deeper in the case to prevent light bleed and mask possible cap distortions at the bottom. I remember you mentioned you took it into account and it is nice to see in the renders too. Thank you for this design decision!

Can you post more renders from the sides (profile of the keyboard) and from behind where the port is or are angles for the render are fixed and you can't control them?

Hmm, we will consider doing so because it inevitably will increase our cost.
But on the other hand, since I am going to get the prototype on hand soon, wouldn't it be better if I showcase the actual product?
There will be tear down and typing demo, rest assured!

Wow Jesus I've been sleeping on this, I'm going to have to get this! I've been wanting something like the JER Mini.

I was really iffy on this, but the new renders definitely got me sold on this one. Very unique layout having the F-row on the side. Good job!

So the PVD brass weight is completely off the table for regulars? only available for the 'special' one that's going to be used for the vickrey auction?

unfortunately, yes.

Edit: Scratch what I said
It's plate that is taken off, weight will still be PVD brass
