[GB] VN66 | Manufactured by EVE - Geekhack Raffle
« on: Sat, 27 July 2019, 03:08:14 »
    223126-0
    Hello everyone. I'm Nguyen Hieu Truong, the admin of VNMK - the largest mechanical keyboard community in Vietnam. Today, I present you with the VN66 Raffle, a keyboard that represents our Vietnamese community.
    There are only 17 units available for this keyboard, 12 have been sold as a raffle exclusively to the Vietnamese Mechanical Keyboard (VNMK) community. And now, the 5 remaining boards will be run as a raffle for international Geekhack users.

    Link to the original/IC post: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=101557.0

    Design:
    223128-1
    This keyboard is heavily inspired by Apple M0110 keyboard as it was manufactured during the late 80s which coincide with when most of our community members were born. We strived to create a modern rendition of a classic design, with liberal use of angle and curve to create a clean and sleek look for a keyboard with large bezel. Furthermore, we applied Fibonacci sequence to the aspect ratio, resulting in a design that will age very well.

    Keyboard information:
    • Manufacturer: EVE
    • Color: White, Dark Blue, Black
    • Plate: Anodized aluminum (in White, Dark Blue or Black) or brass
    ,
    • PCB: Gold-plated and coated in matte black; configurable via QMK; top right position can be replaced with the rotary encoder included in the kit; two USB modules will be included, which are Mini and Type-C
    • Has an inner weight and an outer weight, both made from sandblasted brass
    • Logo: Brass badge
    • Mica piece in the middle
    • Keyboard weight: 3.8kg out of the box, 4.5kg assembled

    Layout:
    223130-2
    223132-3

    Price: $425 ($40 extra for the Brass plate option)
    Raffle Information:
    • Opening time: 2:00 p.m GMT, July 28th 2019
    • 5 units available
    • Ends in 6 hours from the opening time (may be extended)
    • 5 owners from Geekhack will join with the 12 owners from VNMK in a mini raffle for a chance to purchase the Carpagon Artisan by Artkey and an exclusive wrist rest, both will be shipped with the VN66
    223134-4
    [/list]

    Production starts from: Early August 2019
    Product Completion and Finalization: November 2019
    Shipping and Delivery: December 2019

    Some more pictures/renders:

    223144-9

    Raffle Link: https://forms.gle/wf6E9Yjgf4tb5YAe9

    I hope that you will be interested in joining in the raffle. And if you do, I hope that you will be a lucky one to take this keyboard home :)

    November 9th Update: Group buy for the wrist rest is now running, ends on November 15th.
    The wrist rest of the VN66 is now ready for the group buy. You can get this in either white, black, dark blue or natural wood. For the colored versions, there are 3 kinds of textures to choose. You also get to order to print text or logo on the rest, so please enter the content along with details about the position, size and font of what you want to be printed.
    Along with the wrist rest, you can also purchase a kick stand to display the VN66 or any other keyboard that you desire.

    Link to the wrist rest and kick stand group buy: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdPiifjNze5sjTImW_YJqiYmzZH6RcWYpRrpGKu3YvaOAl5jg/viewform?fbclid=IwAR1tun1mof8CzyfJd-I2DWyOO2-dApmp3Cu_BOvZyQPdBMlRx3hXN_csBds
    Payment information will be sent after the group buy closes via Email and Paypal(the address in your submission).

    The raffle for the exclusive Carpagon artisans is scheduled to run in the upcoming week. I hope that the winners will be ready, and I apologize if the raffle took longer than expected to be available.

    A word of caution: The kickstand option in the form is currrently used as a survey, due the high shipping fee that will be included if the stand is to be sold. If you are really interested in the kickstand, please PM me to this email: hieutruongxd11@gmail.com

    November 14th Update: The raffle for the exclusive Carpagon artisans is going to open on Saturday, November 16th, 1:00 PM GMT. The form will be sent to the 17 winners in private via email, and the raffle will close in 30 minutes from opening time. I hope that the Geekhack winners will be ready together with the ones from VNMK.

    January 10th Update: Due to the manufacturing facility having to go through the quality checking procedures from the government, along with the Tet Holiday, production will be delayed until late January. Everything will be back on track again afterwards, and the VN66 will be delivered (approximately) at the end of February. The wrist rest will go along with the keyboard in the package.

    February 22nd Update: Production of the VN66 and the wrist rest had to be delayed due to the Covid-19 epidemic. The board and rest combo are expected to be delivered in mid April (may be stretched to early May). To make up for this incident, we will upgrade the plate from aluminum to brass for everybody, free of charge.

    April 16th Update: Delivery of the products will be scheduled to June, due to the extension of the Covid-19 epidemic.

    June 2nd Update: Production is back online, and updates about the VN66, along with the wrist rest, will come in the next 2-3 weeks, at which time the products are expected to reach the QC and packacking stages. Delivery of the boards and the rest will be delivered at the end of June, provided that everything goes well.

    The address section is numbers only, you got to change it. I don't think there are any address with numbers only.

    Update:

    Thanks for pointing out. The address section previously only accepts numbers, but now I've changed it to text.
    Those who entered ZIP codes do not need to re-enter the form again. You can send the address later if you get a slot in the raffle.

    Finally, due this mistake, the time for the raffle will be extended from 6 to 12 hours from the opening time.

     Also, does each person only need to submit once, or does it increase your chances by submitting multiple times? This is my first time entering a raffle.

    To my knowledge, you should not as it will not be fair for the raffle.
    I suggest that you submit only once more, this time with your address in the Address section as I have fixed it. Apologizes for this inconvenience.

    Update:

    To those who entered zip codes before, please fill the form again with the same information but with your full address in the Address section. Your original and new submit will both count as an entrance.
    Apologies for this incident, and hope that you can enter the form again.

    As for everyone else, thank you for your participation and your positive feedback about the VN66. I really wish that there were more slots for the Geekhack community which is full of great enthusiasts like you guys, but the plan has been set and I cannot make it happen. Again, thank you, and I wish you best luck in any other raffles that you guys will be interested in and join in the future.

    The artisan overview is available in the IC post put at the top.
    As for the wrist rest, the design is still in progress. Updates will come out when the rest's artjob is complete.

    Also, don't forget about the raffles for the Carpagon Artisan and the exclusive wrist rest that will come with the keyboard.

    So just to be clear, there is only going to be one artisan and one wrist rest, and the winners of the GH GB will receive an email about the raffle entry for them?

    For the artisans, there will be 7 units available and will be sold as a mini-raffle for the winners.
    The wrist rest will be sold as a group buy exclusively to the VN66 owners, which means 17 winners can choose whether to purchase the wrist rest to go with the keyboard or not.

    5 owners from Geekhack will join with the 12 owners from VNMK in a mini raffle for a chance to purchase the Carpagon Artisan by Artkey and an exclusive wrist rest, both will be shipped with the VN66

    Also, don't forget about the raffles for the Carpagon Artisan and the exclusive wrist rest that will come with the keyboard.

    So just to be clear, there is only going to be one artisan and one wrist rest, and the winners of the GH GB will receive an email about the raffle entry for them?

    For the artisans, there will be 7 units available and will be sold as a mini-raffle for the winners.
    The wrist rest will be sold as a group buy exclusively to the VN66 owners, which means 17 winners can choose whether to purchase the wrist rest to go with the keyboard or not.
    Awesome, thanks for clearing that up. I'm 100% in for the wrist rest, and I'm definitely down to enter the raffle

    This is cool and I am down for a wrist rest and also will enter for the raffle again.

    It feels like we have a duty to make sure we use a good varied range of switches and caps just to do it justice.  It is not ours to do as we please.  I might go Holy Pandas to recreate the original hollow clunk.

    I'm thinking about HPs as well, but I did just order 70 Tealios right now while they are on sale. It's going to be a gametime decision between Tealios, vint blacks, or HPs with a possible surprise contender of healios.

    How about getting some Zeal holtites and being able to enjoy all four?

    Going back and forth between GMK Dots vs GMK Oblivion for this, too... I think both would look sexy on the white

    Some updates on the Carpagon artisan raffle and the wrist rest group buy:
    - The final color for the Carpagon is being decided, and the raffle for the artisan is expected to run at the end of August;
    - The group buy of the wrist rest is going to open in September.
    I hope that the winners are interested in and will be ready for these two products. And of course, happy clacking.

    October 1st Update:
    - The VN66 is still in progress of completion, and the PCBs for the boards have just been finished;
    - The wrist rest design is also in completion progress;

    For the Carpagon Artisans:
    The Carpagon Artisan is being run by Artkey in the form of fulfillment sale (group buy). You can join the open group buy here:
    Link: https://artkeyuniverse.com/shop/detail/carpagon-int-form?fbclid=IwAR1IsrjgvJNM3puiwwA_dgR65gS_8Dp92-X4zifX_Q6UlHI_xWzt-PqnJcY
    This group buy will close at 2:00 PM GMT, October 3rd.
    The raffle for the artisans to go with the VN66 will have 2 exclusive colors that are not available in the link above. You can have a look in the link or at the pics I put after this comment to see more details about the artisan, and even buy one or more if you find them appealing :)
    Price of the raffle Carpagons may differ from the group buy, which I will update later.
    Stay tuned.
