[IC] iS0 - illuminati keyboards - PREORDER IS LIVE
« on: Thu, 11 July 2019, 05:29:06 »
GB thread


iS0 is avail (soon)
 
iS0 is a 1-key ISO macropad custom
 

 
Have you been wondering what to do with all of those excess ISO enters from your keysets?

Well, here you go, an iso macropad! Configure it as a “boss-button”, configure it as a mouse click, or whatever you can think of!

iS0 will come in 6 colors:Matte Black, Standard Silver, Olivia Rose Gold, Deep Red, Deep Navy, and Dark Grey



SPECS:
  • 18mm front height
  • 8 degree typing angle
  • 69g weight (assembled)
  • 6063 series alu
  • 6 color options
  • Top mounted polycarbonate plate
  • QMK PCB with in-switch LED and dedicated reset switch
  • USB C
  • $69.99 target preorder price




iS0 is a two part, top mounted custom kit – featuring a specialty built polycarbonate plate for optimal keyfeel, total overkill for 1 key macropad – just the way we like it!

Weight of the unit will be 69 grams with the standard configuration


Target price per unit will be $69.99 – each unit will be painstakingly controlled for the smoothest and fullest anodization and will arrive in a specialty packaging



Pcb by Ai03
-Using fullsize atmega controller (32u2)
-Dedicated reset switch on bottom
-In-switch LED support
-Will be available on config.qmk website for plebs like me (maybe VIA)

 
Pre-order / Group buy details:
 
-Group buy to start on Aug 1st
-Preorder will be done on Doyustudio website
-150 units will be available, FCFS
-The buy will remain open for 31 days
-Shipping will be 8 months after group buy close
-All units will ship from Taiwan
-There is no limit on units per person
-Orders will be shipped in batches, in the same order they are received
 



Additional notes / Q&A
 
The 8 month estimate is to prevent the usual “4 month” estimated timeline that ends up being 8 months anyways. We want to take our time and deliver the most beautiful looking keyboard we can, its likely we end up shipping before then, who knows

The $69.99 price may seem high, but in reality, we will more than likely lose money on this group buy. The chosen manufacturer is very high end (I’ll refrain from name dropping, but they produce some very high end keyboards you’ve seen) And the quality control and packaging doesn’t help the fact either. In any case, the goal is to make everyone happy

Yes, we know this project is silly/dumb. It’s not for everyone, but we hope it’s for you!




Here is the link to more info about iS0 (sorry my website is terrible)


A gallery of prototype samples can be seen here (under i69 pics)


Feel free to pop into the discord (iS0 channel) if you have any questions or comments

Q&A FROM THIS THREAD

Are there any shipping cost estimates?

E.g. to Korea, China, Philippines, Australia, EU, USA, Canada would be a good starting point to have listed.

No more than $10 to worldwide with standard shipping

EMS/DHL: (estimated)
Korea - $15
Philippines - $15
Australia - $15
EU - $18
USA - $15
Canada - $15


ne _____(something thats not iso) avail?

_____ can be inserted into the unit without issue, however, this is unauthorized usage, and I will come to your house and hit you with an iso enter


Any chance there will be proxies, specifically an EU one?

Through some basic math, we've figured that it's cheaper for everyone to ship from Taiwan. Since we are already losing money per unit and absorbing that cost, if we were to give units to EU retailers for example, they would pay more per unit (actual cost instead of discounted rate) on top of VAT, which ends up over $85 per unit (assuming the vendor makes 0 money)

Shipping to anywhere in the world should be affordable, this is one of the reasons I chose Doyustudio as the vendor


The price is very reasonable (for this hobby anyway) but shouldn’t it be $69.69?

I actually really need those extra 30 cents :(

That $45 is gonna help pay for some cool stuff


Open for 31 days? I think this will sell out fast..

I'm open to the idea of doing more than 150 units if people are interested enough, hence the big GB window. I'll be flying down to Taiwan to help qc and pack anyways, I don't mind the extra work as long as its for people who really like/want iS0

Not yet, as the exact specs of the hard case for the unit are not finalized yet - though I assure you they will be dirt cheap (Doyu has very good shipping rates)

I'll add them to main post as soon as we have a good idea of size/weights

OK, that sounds good. I was surprised that some GMK sets were actually $20+ cheaper from a proxy than directly + VAT, and that was even before considering the shipping cost. I guess they must have been getting a special price or something.

Also, I don't really like ISO, all my boards are ANSI, but that means I have lots of spare ISO Enters ;-)

I can't bite my tongue any longer. We NEED a dual version of this, with two ISO Enter keys, one upside down, to form a 2.75x2U rectangle (I said this before). But...

The left-side Enter key should have a large 0 legend and the right-side Enter key should have a large 1 legend.

See where this is going? :cool: :cool: :cool:
