Equalz Zer0.9EE TKL keyboard(In Production)
« on: Mon, 01 July 2019, 12:22:20 »
Hello,Geekhackers

It's been too long since our first custom keyboard kit Zero.Now we bring you something from the Zero series. We call it Zero 0.9,in short term Zer0.9

New features of this kit:

1, Iron plate. We been trying to find out the best type feeling keyboard for a long time. Tried nicked iron plate when we did Zero,but it oxidated very quickly. And now we have been using electrophoresis. It gives a whole new type feeling. We feel like this is good choice for a tactile switch.

2, LDN series PCB,16.77M color RGB,fully programmable,with Type-C port.

3, High-light chamfering around the case.

4,Top mount,with O-ring under to reduce noise. And a silica gel plate between PCB and plate(it could reduce some of the noise)

5,Custom made Aluminium.  After months of experiment, this aluminium can reduce the color difference between the top and bottom case.

Pictures:













Typing test video:

Color options: Black case+Black plate+Red nameplate(the small plate cover the usb port and under the weight)
                     Coffee case+Black plate+Black nameplate
                     Yellow electrophoresis case(No High-light chamfer)+White plate+red nameplate
                     Grey case+Black plate+Black nameplate
                     Purple case+White plate+Pink nameplate
                     Dark Green case+Black plate+Black nameplate
                     All the colors above is fixed and can not be changed
                     The brass weight is sandblasted PVD. Have 2 colors Gold and Silver

GB time: 3 days after i post the form link

Lead time: 4 months

Price:$450+shipping+pp fee(5%)   shipping fee will be charged before shipping out,we will have to figure out what's the weight when the package is finished.

Form link:  https://forms.gle/9KW7fsnAs77PFZyj9
                Anything regarding payment,please PM me.
                Anyone want more than 1 please fill more forms.


Thanks everyone for reading this.

And now we have been using electrophoresis.
Anyone got an ELI5 of why/how this works, and the benefits of the plate being this way?

Coffee color will be like Zero. But if you know about anode. It can not be 100% same with different batch. You can see it like this:

Is the software for configuration PC-only? I ask because I primarily use a keyboard outside of that environment.

Yea I think that's a deal breaker for me. Great looking board but I don't wanna have to source another PCB and test fitment and such since I won't use theirs. Oh well
