[IC] KAT Milkshake (Group Buy from 09/02 to 09/30)
« on: Wed, 31 July 2019, 04:46:49 »


Milkshake is back!

Hey!
One year later, and after a lot of requests, Milkshake is finally back, this time in KAT profile!
I started working on this iteration of Milkshake months ago, and I can finally show you the samples and the massive kits rework :eek:

The manufacturer remains the same, that's Keyreative.

Group Buy is starting the September 2nd and will end the September 30th.

So glad we're getting Milkshake in a sculpted profile, and this also gives me an excuse to try KAT, win-win.

Holy moly, so many (well thought out) kits! I see this as something of a "flagship" to get people invested in KAM as a profile. Loving the fact that there's a specific UK kit too.

I saw KAT and I was kinda disappointed at first, I prefer low profile caps, but looking at the renders, that might turn out pretty nice!

Very nice! This is probably unrealistic, but I'd love a Colevrak weirdo kit. Maybe there can be a poll to see if it could replace regular Colevrak kit?

The reason I'm saying this is that the original weirdo alphas are a very large part of the appeal and identity of this set to me.

For the Nomad kit: I think there should be an R2 1u backspace key.

Also, there's a lot of spacebars in there, but no 1.5u keys. If you look at the ortho kits from SA Laser, MT3, etc, they're there and they cater to Corne and Atreus. Corne especially is a pretty popular keyboard in its sort. I hope these can be added.

Additionally, if MOQ is so low, could we split ortho from 40s? It's only recently they're being thrown together to make MOQ, but if that's not a requirement, smaller kits and cost could mean more sales.

AZERTY kit and a better profile than DSA. That's ****ing awesome! However, it would be great to have 2*3U spacebars in the spacebar kit since this configuration is supported by some PCBs.

Nope sorry, the split backspace belongs with 7u spacebar and the 1.5u mods.

Any chance of adding an R1 1.5 backspace?

Which layout requires that?

Very nice! This is probably unrealistic, but I'd love a Colevrak weirdo kit. Maybe there can be a poll to see if it could replace regular Colevrak kit?

The reason I'm saying this is that the original weirdo alphas are a very large part of the appeal and identity of this set to me.

Additionally, if MOQ is so low, could we split ortho from 40s? It's only recently they're being thrown together to make MOQ, but if that's not a requirement, smaller kits and cost could mean more sales.

Yeah I need to add some other keycaps into the spacebar kit.
And I need to enhance the nomad kit as well. Splitting the ortho might be a solution :)

I would be happy to pay extra for ergodox kits that are flat KAT profile. Or maybe KAM but iirc "Wraith" had shine problems?
