This and the TGR 910 are the best looking 65% boards I've seen so far. I hope the GB comes along sooner than later. I'd kill for an endgame 65.

I usually don't like 65s but this is making me re-consider. Super clean!

Is there any possibility of ISO layout for this board?
I started with a Sinclair human flesh keyboard in 1980 and it has never stopped.

...

Whoa! Where’s the ISO support?

We will support ISO if enough interest is shown, but all of our plate files will be made open-source (including ISO) regardless. So even if you’re an avid ISO user and we don’t have an ISO plate, you’ll be able to get one made. We will also be optimizing our ISO plate for consistency, just like our other plates.

The PCB will support ISO out-of-the-box.

I'm pretty sure vox hates fcfs so it shouldn't be fcfs. Hoping for a raffle.

Unfortunately, no. We won’t be overlapping colors between versions. So there won’t be white or black available for the SE.

"While this is a first in the keyboard community for us, we are proud of the team we’ve put together. Combined, we bring ten years mechanical engineering experience and five years of supply-chain management for small-batch, boutique products in other industries."


So. what kind of products in what industries did you have experience in? If I google you guys I can only find this thread.

I have a mech e degree. I’ve worked at Emerson Process Management for 8ish year; then an explosive welding company for almost a year and now with Anton Paar. I have not “released” any products under my own name before.

Love the design and the whole idea.
Although, would it be possible to have a layout without the logo?
I don't think its a bad logo, i'm just a more simple type

I plan on making the badge drawing open source so in the future you could mill or 3d print your own design to go in the space.

Quick question: As far I know the FE version will be a Raffle, I don't know how the raffle mode works here (I'm new on this type of GB) but under what I have investigated, the raffle places are determined according to the activity of the forum? Or how would this mechanism work? Definitely interested in the FE model, but I don't know if a place is secured with luck or mere activity.

We might consider it for a future run, or possibly a 60%, but it won't happen for quite awhile, if at all.

I asked on discord when they first launched the IC and they said they were thinking 15-25 FE and 2-3x as many for the SE. May have changed from then though.

That is a good amount of FE boards given the immense interest in them

Hi Egobean, the FE is made with a stainless steel top and solid copper base. The SE will be the same design but made with all aluminum + a big brass weight on the base to give it some extra weight. The brass weight is centered over the alpha so sound should be consistent.

Amen to that. As the community grows, I hope, we would see better quality at cheaper prices. If this is ~$280 after shipping, then instabuy, otherwise Polaris all the way with that flex PCBs and half plate
