Will the PCB support QMK? Plus, possible Bluetooth support one way or another, then I'll be very happy to quit this hobby (I hope!).
Iím wondering about this as well. I donít think Iíd be able to learn HHKB layout; definitely need to switch some things to sorta mimic a traditional layout.

Iím new to the hobby, so Iíve admittedly been watching videos trying to figure out exactly how HHKB actually works, and I just donít think Iíd be able to get my brain to adapt to it.

That being said, this board is so ****ing sexy. I need it.

Yup the PCB will be running QMK.

Sorry about the lack of updates, been busy with other projects lately but I am hoping to get this board very soon!

Wow! This is an exceptionally classy looking keyboard. Definitely keeping my eye on this one. Really curious to hear what that foam core carbon fiber sounds like.

Can the two sections be pushed together to form a composite unit?

Yes, but you don't wanna do that:

I appreciate the continued interest in this project! We are still actively working out issues with the PCB. We want a fully functioning unit before even considering moving this into GB phase. We are shooting for Q1 2020 hopefully 🙏

Wondering if we could get some more renders/photos of what rose gold would look like.

Some rose golds Iíve seen are more pink, and some appear closer to copper/orang-ish.

Who better to answer than the queen of rose gold herself?

So if those pictures are accurate, it looks like the rose gold leans slightly more toward the ďgoldĒ than the ďrose,Ē especially when directly compared to the Olivia set thatís on there. Itís also possible that color calibration on my phone isnít the best.

Still looks really good.

Actually, I might be wrong. This photo shows that the shade of Rose gold ano is almost exactly that of the Olivia spacebar. Maybe itís just the lighting situation that has me thinking itís not as pink as I thought.

Can this split case (or any, for that matter) be made wireless?

I absolutely love the renders of these cases, but fail to realize that a connecting wire between the two halves is necessary.

Im not a huge fan of wires....

I plan to get a Kendo at some point b/c it's gorgeous and I like HHKB and I love split boards.  I would like to see a working prototype with cables and all to get a better idea of the finished product in use.  NE demo vids available?

I think itís definitely possible to make a cable between the two halves look good. Especially if you maybe already have a custom coiled/aviator cable and you match that color.

I wonder if this kit would include super short custom cables in different colors. It might make the buying process easier on everyone since they donít have to source the cable on their own.

As much as I would love this kind of thing to be wireless, I would rather a rock-solid wired build than an even occasionally unreliable wireless build.

Will dampening foam be available? A sound test would also be helpful

Will extra pcbs and daughterboards be available for separate purchase?
