Is the case going to be injection molded? Guessing from the visible internal ribbing...

A very interesting look, and I'm all for Bluetooth builds.
Does this support a 60% layout with arrow keys?

>MG profile double-shot ABS keycaps
Can I buy this without the keycaps?

Only standard 60% layout, but you can replace the PCB with GH60 pcbs, and you can't buy it without keycaps

Just out of interest... how many of these are you planning to sell? I mean it is beautiful, but what is the breakeven point after paying for the injection moulding tooling?

about $120, after this Ember editon, we will make some basic colours case with basic RGB keycaps, so the price will be lower.

I am not OP,
but let me summarise what I have learnt so far:
  • This keyboard is shipped as a complete build, which means there is no soldering needed for buyers.
  • There are 2 colour options:
    • Smoke black polycarbonate case + MG Ember Dusk keycaps
    • PVD coated(or some other plating?) polycarbonate case + MG Ember Dawn keycaps
  • Bluetooth Wireless + Wired Mode PCB, with QMK firmware
  • 60% ANSI layout (same as Poker 3)
  • Steel plate
  • Case and injection moulded, and compatible with GH60 PCB
  • USB-C breakout board at the right, to ensure the port is accessible even with the thick forehead
  • On/off or wired/wireless toggle switch(?)
  • GB around mid Nov

Btw,
do we still get the MOJO logo at the back? (almost no clear rendering on the back)
also do we still get the bottom wording? (cannot find them in any render)

I don't know why DROP can't ship it to Germany, but our official website will sell it later, so if you buy it on Drop, just buy it, if you can't, pls wait weeks.

Looks great, and all the best with it!
However I love me some arrows, so Ill have to sit this 60% out.
Model M Industrial, SSK, Unicomp 104, Code TKL MX Green, FC660M MX Green + Clear + White + Grey, FC660C Topre 45g, MagicForce 68 USB and Bluetooth, Whitefox, some optical switch 65% Bluetooth split spacebar thing ... wait, I think I need an intervention. Too late, theres a couple of new Model Fs on the way.
Too much SA is never enough.

You can find anodizing Mojo60 on www.melgeek.com
I really like the look of this, but I have one question. Have you provided the PCB to testers to test BT on a wife range of systems? BT ca66 and BT G60 both seems to be unreliable.
