Group buy is scheduled to start on March 6 until April 7!

228541-0

Meine Damen und Herren, Mesdames et Messieurs, Ladies and Gentlemen...

Since the group buy for GMK Phosphorous is well underway and should reach MOQ (🤞🏻), I would love to show you what I have been working on in the meantime.

Ever since June rolled over, I have been thinking how to commemorate the Apollo 11's mission's 50th anniversary.



Then I remembered about the Apollo Guidance Computer (it made waves over the internet a month or so ago, because people were trying to prove that Margaret Hamilton didn't write the software for it) and its interface — DSKY (pronounced "dis-kee"). As you can see, the DSKY has a black keypad with white legends, yellow indicator lights, and a green electroluminescent seven-segment display. Commands were entered numerically, as two-digit numbers — called Verb and Noun. The first one represented the action being issued, while the second represented the data that would be changed.

228545-2

DSKY itself was a starting point, but it did not yet give me a satisfactory colourway. But when I saw exactly how and where DSKY was mounted, I instantly knew what I wanted — subtle, lighter and darker greys, with yellows for the accents.

228547-3

One of my goals was to use the legends and values from DSKY's various keys and indicators, in place of our traditional legends. This in turn led me to a decision to use stock GMK colours, to make everything easier and more affordable.

GMK Lunar uses a medium 2B gray for the alphas and mods with a lighter 2M gray for legends. The Numpad, which I consider an integral part of the whole design and colourway, uses the darker N9 gray with 2M legends. I also chose N6 yellow as the main accent colour, with N9 legends, where appropriate. The Novelty Kit has a set of optional "Master Alarm" accents — these will be either V1 or RO2 (V1 currently).

(Please note that the keys that you will find on the renders below, have since been modified slightly, so they may not be completely accurate at this point in time. They also have a typo — my bad.)

Without further ado, I give you GMK Lunar...

Misc

  • The group buy stage is planned for March 2020.
  • A few vendors are already on board. You're welcome to contact me on the subject.
  • I'm working with MKUltra to create a full Assembly Kit based on Lunar. More info when I know more myself.

Contact

Changelog

  • updated the "Houston! We Have a Problem!" novelty kit. Changes are listed here.
  • updated kits and kit renders; moved Lunar Module (dark alpha kit) to "planned kits"[/url].
  • it should be possible to cover 2 boards with the Command Module + Lunar Module (alpha kit)
  • two novelties have been re-worked, to better fit in with GMK's guidelines for vector art; Astronaut's Helmet — it now reflects the moon's surface in the visor; Neil Armstrong's Footprint — it's now modelled more on the sole of his boot than on the actual print that he left (shadow and all); currently working on an even better Lunar Lander for the R4 1.5u keys. The Moon will be moved to R4 1u keys.

  • Lunar Lander has been reworked to meet GMK's specs (hopefully). Might not be final yet though.
  • R4 1.5u Moon novelties moved to R4 1u keys.
  • Lunar Lander with Flag added to R4 1.5u keys.

I think it's nice to have a space themed set that doesn't scream PLANETS and SPACESHIPS. Space can be monotone and serious as well. You could offload some of that normal spacey stuff onto a desk mat. I have a thick NASA photobook all about the Apollo missions and they have some great photos of earth from above. https://imgur.com/a/efrrSeZ

For me this set leans more into command module than space anyway.

i think the novelties are actually really good, but i think the base kit is lacking

the legends don't show on the alphas enough, i think a whiter white or a darker grey would fix this issue

and since you want it to be mottled, like the surface of the moon, it's worth considering using a different color on the mods

Hey, love the idea of the set btw and the colours!

Just a concern for the base kit, considering that this set will be using custom text mods with lots of compatibility, GMK will have to make moulds for all of them which will drive the price up quite a bit. Something like this was seen in GMK Fro.Yo, but the smaller base kit made it still reasonably priced. How much it'd add I'm not sure, but it's just something to keep in mind of in case you wanted to cut it down for a more accessible price.

Look forward to seeing this in GB! :cool:

I like it. Base set is super low contrast for the legend color though. You might consider choosing a lighter shade of grey/white.

Edit: Also, the display text was green. I think green novelties would add a lot to the theme. Maybe even a translucent escape or enter key?

What do you mean?

Its always been an MOQ of 250 on custom colours and 150 on stock for pricing unless you're bound to sell well which in that case quotes of 500, 750 etc can be made

Probably just me, but what if "master alarm" was the backspace?

I like the lower contrast as is, I'd buy with the color suggestions too.

I am a big fan of the low contrast. It could maybe do with a little bit more but it should remain "grey on grey". If it were much higher contrast with dark mods, green novelties and translucent Esc I feel it would completely miss the mark on the original minimalism OP was going for.

Wait, what?.. Where did op state this? This set is supposed to emulate a DSKY computer. The only quote I can find is "subtle, lighter and darker greys" which indicates nothing about low contrast legends or a lack of colored novelties (which are literally already offered in a kit).

I don’t actually. Colourway is based on the AGC/DSKY interface and it’s surroundings. They happen to coincide with the the Moon’s shades of grey and the moon novelty is about as far as I would like to go in that direction.

I actually tried to incorporate the green (GMK AE) into the Numpad legends. It didn’t match the rest of the set. Clashed. I like your translucent idea though. Will think on it.

Some questions and topics from IC form that I wanted to touch on:

1. If you want regular mods, get GMK ASCII by Oblotzky. It’s running soon and we’re (completely by accident) running the same two shades of gray (2M and 2B).

2. I have 2 ideas for a RAMA collab I wish to pursue. Hopefully Kate will understand what I want.

3. I will be talking to Salvun about another collab (copper key, similar to the housing of the AGC in colour).

4. I cannot do a NASA logo. It’s copyrighted. I probably could reach out to them but the amount of red tape would be probably insane.

5. If this kit was running on Drop.com (which it won’t), I’d consider one more base kit in a reverse colourway (N9 mods and alphas, with a light numpad), aka what Oblivion did. But I don’t think we’d get enough buyers to make it reach MOQ.

6. There will be desk mats.

7. I am working on a very unique collab, one that hasn't been done before. More info when I get it.

I actually like the mods and alphas beeing the same color. My concern was the legends themselves beeing low contrast because in the renders they are near illegible. See SoWaRe or deep space for real life examples of what I'm talking about. However, if this set uses the same colors as ASCII, then it may just be an issue with the lighting in the renders because I can make ASCII out just fine.

The legends should be fine. Oblotzky does colour/lighting neutral renders, while Abec goes for more fancy lighting (I’m guessing a tad less accurate).

Should be plenty enough contrast for readability, yet they should subtly complement each other. These two colours have a similar temperature and they work wonderfully together.

I spent a few hours teaching myself rendering today (I'm tragic, so please bear with me; also can't get unicode legends to work, so I changed the arrow keys to text) while trying to showcase the contrast between the 2B keys and 2M legends. It should be plenty legible. Tried to make the lighting neutral and natural. Let me know what you think.

228661-0

I also played around with the idea of doing N9 legends on 2B keys. Here's what I came up with and please let me know what you think. The lighting in this render is a bit too dark (think evening time with little light) but the contrast appears to be lower than with the 2M legends.

228663-1

Feedback welcome. As usual.

AS much as I like GMK Dark and Ddolch, liked your original design better. Matches your inspiration a bit more too (although those keys look more like N9).

I'm probably not the only one who also likes the interoperability with ASCII, too.

Preliminary GB date is March 2020.

GMK Taro is March too. Will this be October 2019 all over again for me?

I’ll experiment with N9 mods and N9 alphas tomorrow.

How about Option 1 with alphas. Option 2 with modifiers? How will that look with renders?

I like the original concept with the same light colour for both mods and alphas. I'm a sucker for low contrast though. Interchangeability with ASCII is a welcome bonus.

Here's something to discuss — a few topics from the IC check:

Quote
I’m not Best with kits, but i like including ISO people since it only adds like $5 base cost

Added. The majority voted for ISO in base.

Quote
Maybe a yellow 2u spacebar in the spacebar kit or 40s kit. Base kit has options for yellow space, but there's nothing for smaller sizes in yellow.

Added yellow bars to Spacebar kit.

Quote
I think you should separate the numpad from the base kit to reduce costs.

I won't be doing that in this set (it would save approximately 5 USD on price in this configuration and would cost around 30 as a child kit).

Quote
numpad in the black color is offputting, so are the legends that aren't easily understood, I have no association with things like 'Vel' for a key I'd put on my keyboard (alt, control, etc). I think this needs to be re-evaluated, it seems like a set with too many visions it's trying to accomplish. Maybe you need to put the black alphas into the base, not sure but it just strikes me the wrong way

Clarification: It's a dark N9 grey. Legends aren't meant to be easily understood — they're a homage to the DSKY interface for the Apollo Guidance Computer. And we all know where each key is anyway (especially mods; you don't need the proper legends to use them correctly). I'm not sure what the author means by "too many visions” — let me know if you're reading this. N9 alphas are being considered (renders below).

Quote
Specifically, I wonder if the base kit should have black-on-white keys instead of white-on-gray, and then perhaps the Lunar Module kit becomes white-on-gray.

Seems like there is a missed opportunity for some BoW

BoW is GMK Minimal. I wouldn't want to make a copy of this kit with different legends. Also, the grey is from the inside of the cockpit where the Apollo Guidance Computer was installed.

Quote
There should be a separate numpad kit that matches the rest of the set, or put the dark numpad into a separate kit. I'd like the option available to match the rest of the set.

There could be but I doubt it would hit MOQ.

Quote
ISO-FR

Spanish - Latin American

Unfortunately I don't think there will be enough demand for this. 😞

Quote
alternate colors for F keys - having them all the same color as the 0-9 keys does not look good on some 75% keyboard where the 0-9 and F keys are one giant grid (i.e. Singa)

Thoughts?

Quote
Space at should probably be grey by default, but I think it needs a bit of white too. Yellow arrows are amazing, but would love white enter and escape for example.

White novelties instead of grey.

love your setup so far. I like white accents/novelties because White reminds me of the moon.

Three requests for white novelties. Instead of red? Another colour way? We're getting into an expensive novelty kit here! Thoughts?

Quote
I would like to see a 3u space in there for the landing pad kit.  **I have a split space bar on the Vortexgear Cypher and there are NO kits that have a 3.25u space. So the split is a 3u and a 3.25u space bar which I find really convenient, but really inconvenient that there are NO kits for it. If this increases the price of the kits, then I would say forget I mentioned it, but just a thought.

I don't think GMK has molds for these keys.

Quote
I would love to see some additions to the 40% ortho which would allow me to use the lunar module and that kit together to have a complete keyboard (I have an iris) 2 more R1 keys would do it! Good luck!

Thoughts? (At this point (according to the survey) there is not enough demand for 40s/ortho to warrant a child kit.)

Quote
Option for mods without custom legends.

I would greatly prefer standard legends in the base kit.

Go get GMK ASCII for the regular mods. 😉

Quote
Minivan backspace

Can someone clarify which row and size that is?

Quote
1. Yellow split space bars could be somewhere? (2.75/2.25). If you put them in the 40's kit, that's cool, me and a coupla other people split up those into 40 ortho split bars and mail each other the subset.

3. If the whole thing was N9, or the numpad became...uh, not 2Bthat's cool too.

5. Every. Single. Time. Mito posts a new godspeed kit, people ask for GMK, he won't do it. Though this isn't a copy, it sure scratches the same itch. I think you have a winner.

Re 1: Added to Spacebar kit.
Re 3: A reverse colour way? I'll consider it. Thoughts?
Re 5: I'm a fan of the Godspeed set. Only appreciated the XDA profile (missed GB unfortunately). Never thought to use it as inspiration for Lunar though — I just focused on the AGC and DSKY.

Quote
teeny bit concerned about contrast on the grey keys.

It shouldn't be a problem. It's actually more contrasty then the renders give it credit.

Quote
Maybe a bit more yellow keys? Esc, caps, ctrl?

Thoughts?

Quote
Might be interested in the dark alphas, just need to see a render first.

Will be added today.

Quote
Coleman support

I'd love to do that but there is practically no chance this would hit MOQ.

Quote
I would love to see a concept artisan made of copper (not sure if it would look better polished or blasted)

Working on this with Salvun.

Quote
Modifiers and function keys kit but in Lunar Module colorway. Basically a new set in the Lunar Module colorway

Is this something you'd like to see? In theory, if there was enough demand, we could do another base set in a reverse colour way with or without a numpad (N9 keys with 2M legends, 2M keys for Numpad with N9 legends).

Quote
More novelties, perhaps a NASA logo or stylized NASA logo

Would love to do this, but copyrights/permissions needed. 😞

Quote
Maybe a VIM kit if there is enough interest

Anyone?

Quote
yes, an assembly kit with these custom text mods please (no to boring blank ergo mods)!

Please add an ergo kit to better support ortholinear and ergonomic boards.

Working on this with MKUltra. No details yet.

Also, I made another render of the Lunar Module.

HHKB is one those layouts that looks amazing always.

Someone on Discord suggested for those people to use the GMK Nines alphas to mix and match. What do you think? An alpha kit would run around 50 USD probably.

woaw! What a beauty! As a "space guy" I really dig the colors and thought about this set.  :eek:

2B mods and N9 alphas may be my fav, or tied with original design.

Re alpha kit pricing: camping has Latin alphas at 62. Violet on cream had purple alphas (also numpad alphas) for 70, and that’s novelkeys pricing which is typically cheapest. Take away number row you could be in the 50s. Oblivion r2 sold over 1000 hagoromo alphas and was 55$.

OK, so according to the IC form I posted, 70% want the Novelty Kit and 49% want the Lunar Module kit with N9 alphas.

Should I combine the two?

Other thoughts:

- 40s kit has low interest
- NorDEUK barely any
- Spacebar kit lower than expected.

So plans at this point in time include:
- Base Kit
- Novelties
- Spacebars
- Lunar Module (N9 alphas)

I was thinking of combining alphas with spacebars or novelties to lower costs but that would mean that some would pay more than they need/want to.

Thoughts?

Current IC numbers show that a little under 50% want the Lunar Module Kit. I'm pretty sure that number will drop by 50% once they see the price in the 50-70 USD range.

Also considering adding R1 Esc + F5-F8 in N9 to Lunar Module kit.

$50-$70 is pretty standard for an alpha kit and I think most people interested enough to fill out the form know this. You should probably also add a 7u space bar to Lunar Module as well.

So I spent the last two days working on the kits some more along with some very unprofessional renders (but hopefully better than screenshots from KLE).

Please note that the text on the arrows will be replaced by arrow icons. The font is also not a perfect match for GMK's font. These are temporary renders until they're more or less finalized, when I'll get someone who knows what she or he is doing to do them.

The 4 highlighted in the base kit is what I'm after. Assuming average cost of other NorDeUK kits, it is a significant additionbal cost when all i need out of it is 4 keys. I can't justify the added expense. Fair if others can, but I can't.

Two novelties have been re-worked, to better fit in with GMK's guidelines for vector art.

Astronaut's Helmet — it now reflects the moon's surface in the visor.

Neil Armstrong's Footprint — it's now modelled more on the sole of his boot than on the actual print that he left (shadow and all).

Currently working on an even better Lunar Lander for the R4 1.5u keys. The Moon will be moved to R4 1u keys.

I have a feeling like if it had dark grey mods, it would look a lot better, but that's just my opinion.

Then it would be just Modern Dolch with different legends.

GMK Lunar more like GMK Apollo
GMK Apollo more like GMK Lunar
I swear these two sets should really swap names at some point and make more sense thematically, but confuse everyone even more :p

"GMK Apollo Guidance Computer with DSKY Interface" was a bit too long. 😉
Fair enough. I'm just glad this isn't (trying to) run in December against the Olivian Juggernaut++

Well March 2020 was planned originally by me (I think I wrote about that somewhere in this thread) and I just noticed that's the month that Octix decided to run Apollo.

GMK DSKY would be a fun name, maybe more distinctive, more memorable, and easier to Google search, even if less easy to pronounce.

I completely agree. However, most will automatically associate "Lunar" with something to do with the Moon, while DSKY is extremely vague for most. I would personally prefer DSKY, but it was suggested I should go with Lunar.

Makes sense. Another option would be something like GMK Lunar Lander which would still help specify the theme away from "the moon" and towards "NASA/Apollo tech"

I hope you all have had a pleasant ending to 2019 and are all back for 2020. I have a few updates I'd like to share and I'd greatly appreciate some feedback.

1. A few people have been asking for N9 (darker) Home/PgUp/PgDn/End keys for the rightmost column on 65% layouts. I have not yet addressed this directly but I'm still thinking about it.

2. The people from above gave me the idea to expand the novelty kit by a further 6 keys. Please take a look and tell me what you think. I have also taken the liberty of replacing the red with a different shade — it's now RO2 instead of V1 (more red, less orange) and IT IS NOT COLOUR-ACCURATE in the render below. (Please note the arrow keys will have actual arrows, not text — I can't render arrows for some reason.)

233127-0

3. I'm working on an Assembly Kit (ergo/40s/ortho) with MKUltra (he will be buying out any remaining MOQ, so it should get made regardless). The first draft is below. It is a bit different in style than the other kits, because I'm trying to cater to MKUltra's expectations and style. All feedback is welcome!

233129-1

Please note:
- the render below does not properly display the arrow keys (they will be actual arrows)
- the render does not properly display some of the concave keys (see above for specifics)
- please give me some feedback on the 3 additional keys in the bottom right corner (are all/any needed?)

233131-2

I'd be super grateful for someone to go over the kit for errors etc.

4. Langelandia gave me the idea to honor the astronauts that took part in the Apollo 11 mission. If you look at the base kit below...

233133-3

... and the ZXC keys, they have sub-legends with the date of the mission. The 3 astronauts themselves were Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong, and Michael Collins.

So what if I added a "Buzz" sub-legend to the B key, "Neil" to N, and "Michael" to M? They're all right next to each other (there are no coincidences).

Thanks in advance!

Btw, I have that carbon set as well and with it you can experience the cherry profile how it was origanally designed and intended to be. I got TA90 for the same reason.

Loving everything so far. Great work.

1. I prefer the lighter option for uniformity.

2. More novelties = better. Looking forward to seeing the new red.

3. Looks okay in my once-over. I am interested in building a redox which uses 1.25u mods on the left and right edges, but I think this is niche (redox) within a niche (ergo), so this is my own problem.

4. This is such a badass idea! Love the dates and the names.

I have a KBD75 and would also love to see R5 and R0. While it is not a competition, and while I will likely buy both sets anyway, this may be another way to differentiate Lunar from Apollo.

OK guys, I made a poll. I realize that like 3 people have asked for R012345 but here goes...

NEW POLL for GMK Lunar Profile — R1-1-2-3-4-4 vs. R0-1-2-3-4-5.

Moridin: I submitted one response. I was allowed to submit more than one though-maybe change that? Does r0 r5 add to the price?

Rest of the community: I like R0/R5. I’d still buy it as it stands now. Anyone dislike it as Much as I like it? Is it a dealbreaker for some of you? I don’t hear much about it vs rare board compatibility kits and such.

Added Assembly Kit to main post. Also, scrapped NorDEUK and 40s kits — there wasn’t enough interest in those.

Regarding the R0/R5 and R1/R4 poll, there are more of the latter.

If you’d like, I could consider making just an R0 row and R5 row supplemental kit in the future. It’s a bit late now for that big of a change so far along into the IC. We’ll be launching the set soon and I don’t want to shake things up drastically.

Great kits, looking forward to it.  Only suggestion is for 1800 kits that have a 2u + and 1u + and 1u - with the pg down or somesort in the top right area of the numpad, to maybe have a 1u black novelty to keep the black look of the numpad on those boards.  I guess we could use two of the -'s

Updated the Assembly Kit. Supports more layouts now, including XD75 and various other rare layouts.

Really nice coverage for this kit - probably the best coverage I have seen on an Assembly kit. I really appreciate those bottom row 1.5u mods for things like the Sol2. I will go in on an Assembly kit for sure. I really hope it can hit MOQ.
