[IC] HSA White on Black & HSA Beige on Brown
« on: Mon, 30 September 2019, 16:58:27 »
Hello everyone.

As mentioned earlier we have been working with JTK on HSA, their new keycap profile and we can finally share the launch sets and the groupbuy details!

We plan to run the following two sets at the same time.
There is one kit only, focussed on basic compatibily to keep the price low.  I was told by JTK that in the first production run ISO support wont be a thing.  JTK will most likely have a change of heart and put ISO support in the basekit as well.  I will share info about this as soon as there is an update.





MOQ per set: 250.
The set will be packaged in JTK trays.

Vendors and pricing HSA White on Black
US: novelkeys.xyz: 75 USD
EU: mykeyboard.eu: 75 EUR
ASIA: zfrontier.com: 479 CNY | en.zfrontier.com 75USD
AUS: dailyclack.com: 122.25 AUD

Vendors and pricing HSA Beige on Brown
US: dixiemech.com: -
EU: mykeyboard.eu: 75 EUR
ASIA: zfrontier.com: 479 CNY | en.zfrontier.com 75USD
AUS: dailyclack.com: 122.25 AUD

Groupbuy launch date: TBA but very soon ;-)

Special thanks to:
- JTK for the patience and listening to our feedback.
- All the vendors for running the sets.
- Janglad and Ryan for helping me with the core kit design and renders.
- Eskimojo, ISO_Returns, konstantin, kwerdenker and Miguel Farah for helping me draft some ISO options <3.

Looks cool! Any chance of a side profile comparison to other established profiles (cherry, oem, sa, dsa etc)?

Also, fix the reference to "White on Brown" above pricing.

It’s a long shot, but any chance we can get some ortho support? Asking for a friend 😅

He's asking for me 😂
run
Ortho support would only require 4, 1u mods and a 2u spacebar, at least for minimal support. It's ok if they don't do it for this run.

I do think split spacebars would be even better considering all of the split builds - Alice and so forth.

But are they really gonna say “BACK SPACE” on the backspace key?

I'm in, but why do the renders have so much shine on it lol.

Did Tyson run the design for it lol
Once a set shines, it is truly yours. It is then your job to nurture it and care for it.
Love it until it blossoms into the beautiful fully and evenly shined set it has always wanted to be since it saw a shined set on Instagram under the hashtag #perfection.
Support it and maintain it until it will grow into itself and become one with itself. Then you can truly enjoy the typing experience
Sincerely,

Thats an old render ˆˆ.  Has been fixed already with new molds.  The kit renders show the updated keys.

If i read the post right on the keycaps page, they’re really gonna be this shiny. Fine by me, I like that. Will they dull over time?

Any chance of brown set w/ USA vendor?

Love the shine. Would like both black and brown, would be great if carried by the same vendor.

JTK is considering adding these molds from the start for these HSA sets ;-).  Konstantin and others helped drafting the required keys.

Love the idea 👍 This run isn't for me due to no Colemak compat but I'll definitely be in for a future WoB run when that compat is added.

Would like to note that in the renders you've got a SRCLK key instead of what I presume should be SCRLK.

Apology if these have been asked before, but what is the homing type on this profile? Deep dish, bar, or dot?

And since this is already shiny from the start, I guess I don't need to ask this, but still.. what type of plastic? ABS or PBT or..?

to quote from first thread: "HSA or HALF SA is a double shot ABS keycap profile with a glossy finish."

Thank you. And from the renders, it seems that it's using deep dish homing keys? Or is it a dot/bar?

Does it mean no ISO for first run?
Would ISO be available once moulds are done?
For example if you guys run brown set now, base kit, will you make ISO in the future for it?
