Disclaimer: we do not officially support this color combo because PC and aluminium version are manufactured by 2 different factories and we cannot guarantee the compatibility will be perfect. (although in this case it is)

Thank you for coming in.

BOCC is an embodiment of utility and aesthetics. This unique layout not only serves properly on a daily use basis, but also is a great layout to display the beauty of our beloved keysets in a unique form.

The design philosophy of this board is inspired by the first carrier of this unique layout - Kmac Mini. The robust utility it offers and the aesthetic of the whole board is pure joy to look at. We hope not only to bring back this layout to our beloved community, but also we would like to try something new this time - a non-traditional mounting system.

Traditional top mounting system requires the screws to lock in the plate from the bottom case to the top case, while having the PCB suspended in between when it is fully assembled. We hope to alleviate, if not eradicate the reverbs that the suspension of the PCB would cause, thus, 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.

Specification of the board:

*Please note that although render colors are not representing the final product, most of the renders above reflect their color faithfully; however, Baby Blue is not perfectly accurate to the sample that we are looking to get, the final product should be more light. The color of Cyan/Tiffany Blue in the render should be very close to the actual color now.

Here's the BOCC PC prototype pictures!

Before having a glimpse of what the actual board looks like, or asking some questions that you may already have when you saw the pictures, please read the followings,

This is a prototype that was meant for us to inspect the CNC finishes and see if there is any nitty-gritty the factory may have overlooked - which is why it is a NOT the actual retail version of BOCC; but you can have a rough picture of how it will look like. There are some known issues and had been sent back to the factory for further calibrations.

Known issues are as follows,
  • The screws for BOCC has yet to manufacture, these screws are standard screws that can be found and bought in mechanic store. This results in some screw holes were punctured through due to the length of the screws are different from the inserts of BOCC.
  • The upper case PC finishes is not properly polished. As mentioned this is the prototype that was used for examining if there is major issue on overall CNC finishes, they didn't spend time / manpower to polish the PC surface to match retail version's standard.
  • The PVD brass side-weight and weight were not properly processed yet. Reasons as the above.
  • USB C cut out is not perfect. This is due to the misinformation the factory received in the first place, resulting in making the USB C cut out too small.
  • The plate used in this prototype was already manufactured before we announced we are going to support split backspace, don't worry; please put back down your justice wand.

These issues had all been reported back to the factory long before this has come to my possession. Since we are implementing triple QC, I am the last gatekeeper to make sure things won't go wrong, I can confirm that the aforementioned issues were the only problems found, which is identical to the second gatekeeper's testimony.

These are BOCC PC is plugged to power, the glowing effect stands out pretty nicely.

225701-4

As you can see from the picture, the PCB is mounted on the bottom case, it will be sturdier than the traditional top mounting system because the latter one, if not all, has their PCB alleviated in between plate and bottom case. We hope to eliminate the reverbs caused by typing and provide a more singular bottom out experience with this mounting system.

Since the tray mounting points are not the traditional one - distributed across the board with mounting point pillars, instead, its on the edge just as shown in the picture. What we hope to do with this is that it could in turn give more flex and a more unified stress distribution across the alphas.
225703-5

The CNC work here is precise and on point. As you can see the weight is soundly and firmly sitting in between the cutouts, the tolerance in between the case and weight is so small that it seems like its perfect fit.
225705-6
225707-7

There are overwhelming backlit RGB led at the back of the PCB; 4 on both sides, 12 sits across the alphas - making it altogether a whopping 16 backlit RGB led.
225709-8

From this picture, you can see how the mounting system works, the PCB is locked in place to the bottom case; while the plate is screwed to the top case from the bottom case.
225711-9

We will not be using this as our typing demo and tear down video for obvious reasons.
  • The screws do not reflect the final product
  • The refined version - retail version should be held as standard, not the prototype because every elements contribute to typing experience

For spec geek -
PC prototype (without keycaps and switches | PC Plate) - 1115g.

Aluminium early bird will be done soon, the ETA for the video would be Mid-Sep.
We know there is a need for prototype tester, we will see if there is extra left for accepting public tester. If there is, we will make relative announcement.

Looks really sweet. Think you're going to blow through those run amounts pretty quickly.

This double mounting system... is it the same for both the Alu and PC? Will be interesting to see how well it works out in the prototype.

Before I even get remotely hyped for a poly version of the kmini, would you;
- have some expanded views of how the mounting is supposed to work
- more information about the sale type? as in; raffle or fcfs.

Thank you for your interest!

We will be adding the exploded view of the construction of Kmini.
As for the sales type, we are still uncertain which will suit best with the sales as we still need to garner interests so we could have more solid data to work on. We are going to dish out the IC form soon. Stay tuned!

So are other plate options available for the aluminum version or is this also exclusive for the polycarbonate version. Hopefully the quantity for those get expanded since the mounting is really interesting.

Would you consider having having a blocked 1u at the top right corner, similar to some 65% board? I think it would help aesthetically, and avoid being too similar to the KMAC Mini.

Firstly, design is beautiful and the prices are really nice and competitive. Lovely to see.

I may be missing something but regarding the colours, are all of them going to be done by electrophoresis or just the white? Sort of hard to tell from the phrasing, I assume it's just the white since that's the only one that's prefixed but with the little note below regarding how the process works, I'm sorta hoping they're all e-coated.

PS: will there be options for plate material in addition to the standard stainless steel for the aluminium version?

IC form will soon be up, there will be a question on whether people prefer most of the color options are done in e-coat or ano, whichever gets higher votes, whichever prevails. Please stay tuned and cast your vote when the form is ready! Thank you for your interest!

it's more realistic and people shouldn't expect it to look as perfect as most renders make it out to be

Looks amazing. Interested in aluminium with brass plate/weight. PC looks great too.

Do you plan on providing a non hotswap and non Bluetooth PCB?

We are still working out the details
For now, aluminium will come with a non-hotswappable / bluetooth PCB
We are planning to open the options for extras, such as plate or PCB, but the decision is not finalized until the IC phase is over.
Thank you for your interest!

No, since we would have to modify the PCB to fit the bottom case screw hole for PC version, it wouldn't be compatible with the aforementioned PCB.

Revo already made a board called the Kmini


Might want to change the name to remove confusion.
Thank you for bringing this to our attention, in light of that, we have decided to change its name to Bocc for better differentiation. Thank you!
Heeee, those fingers look very familiair. I wonder whose they might be... hmmmm....

Unfortunately, we are going to implement it on PC version only.
As for the color finish, we will be posting an IC on the thread soon, we will decide whether it should be mostly done in ano or e-coat. Thank you for your interest!

Love the alu version! Would love it even more with the "sidebar" accent added. Nice work!
