PRE-GB UPDATE

Some last minute changes were made:
  • Case screws changed from countersunk to socket caps
  • Added split LShift support for ISO users
  • Changed top/bottom case seams to 0.1mm chamfered edges

Stoked about the new TMO50! Got v1 in rose gold, but I need this in my life too. It's just an amazing layout and solid quality build all around.

Just one thing. Split left shift support.

As it now offers a 2.25u left shift and split right shift, why not offer a split left shift as well? It'd offer extra compatibility for ISO layouts where split left shift is widely used (usually for a variation of <>| symbols). And since the TMO50 has enough columns, it'd actually offer full compatibility for a Nordic Dvorak layout, which is afaik hitherto unseen in the 40% community.

I'm a Swedish ISO user and I find split left shift very comfortable to use and when I'm Linux-ing, I use it extensively for writing scripts in bash as it has the pipe symbol.

Unless there are pcb/electronic reasons for excluding it, would you consider adding support for it? I think it'd only add to the versatility of the board without having to make any deductions from it.

Just my two cents. I realize I noticed the IC/GB threads way too late and understand if it'd be difficult to make changes now.

Sorry about that but I wanted something special as the designer. No FE rounds this time so had to do a one-off for myself. Ruby Red aluminium looks :fire: as well in my eyes! Originally wanted that but I have never owned a polycarbonate board and still wanted that red.

Thanks ctrl for letting us know. We somehow skipped this over without much thought but it makes sense. Upas will add this and I'll change plate a bit. I myself am an ISO user most of my life so I can't leave ISO people hanging.

Saw the prototypes in person last weekend. They are just drop dead gorgeous. The anodizing on the blue prototype is buttery smooth, with absolutely no flaw visible under naked eyes. No cracks/defects on the polycarb. They both feel great, and sound great. Nothing to complain about. Was also told phillips screws will get replaced by hex screws for the production run, so that's just niceeeee. Just a solid keyboard overall funderburker! I would be very surprised if this board doesn't sell out under one minute.

Hehe, that's great to hear man! Thank you for the nice words, warms my heart on this cold & snowy day in Latvia! :)

You are right about that, Hex over Phillips screws and also we changed out the case screws to be socket caps so they sit in deeper and are just nicer than countersunks.
Small details but that's just something that can always be improved upon!

All these small tweaks after we received prototypes makes me feel like I should get a production board as well.  :p

P.S. Extras will be available 10 hours prior to actual GB!

so if Plates and PC case bottom will only be added to base kit orders.... but the extras start 10 hours earlier... how does that work?  if you get in on the FCFS extras but don't get a base kit does the order get cancelled or something?

Yeah, plates and PC case bottom are only eligible IF you win a base kit. They can be added to your cart prior just so you get a better change on getting in. PCBs are unlimited and stand-alone though.

This is done because - you don't need a plate or a PC bottom if you don't win a full board and PCBs are stand-alone cause then if you don't win you can still get a PCB and make your own case if you know how.

Plate files will be open-sourced over the weekend as well though so if that's nice. ;)

You should have received an email both confirming your entry into the GB as well as a secondary email prompting you to choose a color (if aluminum) or Smokey/clear if poly.

A few still left on mykeyboard.eu! E-white is sold out, but alu and pc are still available. If the numbers mentioned on Discord are right, that just might be the last pc kit left.

Apparently the mail where one gets to choose color won't be sent until end of weekend from mykeyboard.eu.

In for PC! Is there any way to swap the default brass plate that comes in the base kit for a PC plate instead? I'd rather not buy an extra.

I asked this previously. No, there is no way to change it to a PC plate except from buying an extra.

But hey, you can always sell the brass plate in the future if you end up not liking it.

Hey people!

Unofficially I have information that all GB spots are sold so thanks to everyone who did get in for their TMOv2 and sorry to all of those that didn't!
Once we get all the statistics together, I'll share some relevant ones here!

Replying to some questions that arose here:
  • Colour choice email forms from MyKeyboard.EU will probably go out over the weekend IF they haven't gone out already. I'm not a vendor so if you have any questions for them, please contact them via their Discord servers.
  • Plate file will be uploaded to TMOv2's QMK repo once code for default keymapping will be released. It shouldn't take too long!
  • And approximate shipping time would be middle of spring, more towards late April. We'll know better once everything's ordered from the factory.

Hey guys!

I truly apologize about no updates earlier but IRL responsibilities got me all tired in the evenings. But it's been 3 weeks already (!!!) since sale happened so it's probably best to give a heads up what's happening! Promise that I'll try and update in a timely manner from now on!

We sold out all 130 boards world-wide in about 4 hours! That's extremely impressive and I am truly shocked about it! I hoped that would happen but when it did, I screamed like a little girl. Very thankful for everyone that purchased a TMOv2!

So about the updates:
  • We have put in the order to the factory so case & plate manufacturing is slowly starting. Once there's anything to show, we'll do so!
  • Updated PCB prototypes have been received and Upas confirmed that it's good to go! He's currently working on firmware and will order them this week!
  • Packaging has been thought about and samples are being made.
  • Upas will soon order screws for cases & plates (gathering one big order with other keyboards).
  • I'll be ordering stickers for all orders around holidays but before then I'll make a small poll about colours you'd like to get for one design.
  • As for the clear "Frog on a log" artisan by SPARKLE PONY - we'll be adding them for all clear PC orders as promised. Still thinking what to do with the extras lol but that's strictly decided by the artist himself.

I don't find it surprising at all. It's a pretty unique board which strikes a clever balance between minimalism and functionality unlike anything else out there in the <60% segment.

I was getting pessimistic before GB launch because of the slightly quiet GB thread and not seeing a lot of discussion about TMOv2 so I didn't know what to expect. Would it sell out in a few seconds, couple hours or over the weekend? But I gotta agree that TMO is truly a in-between sized board. From using a 40% and 60% boards, TMO strikes a good balance between size and functionality. I really got to build my proto!  :confused:

Congratulations on amazing buying period!

Thanks Dexie!

Update 20191216

I gotta apologize once again for some silence. I hope to be a bit more frequent once 2020 starts.

So let's get to the small updates:

  • All hardware has been sent to the factory.
  • Boards have been ordered, and we are waiting on machining.
  • We have approved packaging samples and will be making an order.
  • I'll make a voting form for sticker designs during holidays. The plan is to order them early to mid-January.

Onto a big one. There's no easy way to put this but we've had to make a compromise regarding polycarbonate TMOv2 cases. Our factory messaged us about their concerns that the polycarbonate cases could be prone to warping if we don't add 4 additional case screws. I had to make the decision that all polycarbonate cases will come with 8 screws while aluminium counterparts will stay unchanged with only 4 case screws, one on each of the case corners.

I understand that some of you (me included) really like the clean angled back without any visible screw holes but it's a compromise both I and also the factory is willing to make to offer a better product in the end for everyone. This change does not change the feel of TMOv2 in any way, only changes the aesthetic of the board when viewed from the back.

One last thing I would like to mention is that due to this, people that have ordered an aluminium version of the board and have ordered polycarbonate bottom as extra will have some inconsistency between the parts - aluminium top will still have 4 case screws on the corners and polycarbonate bottom will have 8 case screws rendering the 4 middle one to be left empty. This, however, won't impact the integrity of the build as the issue mostly stems from polycarbonate top becoming warped and not the bottom.

As we did order prototypes in a timely manner and had them on-hand before GB order was made I can assure that I received a great polycarbonate case that didn't show any issues but keep in mind that it's a one-off and not one of tens of PC boards that will be made during GB so before making multiple it's hard to settle on a fail rate number. We trust in the factory that if they're letting us know early on about a potential issue down the road that it's best to resolve it now before real production has started.

For everyone that has ordered a full PC TMOv2, I am truly sorry but I would like to ship a board that has no structural issues even if it means changing it visually.

Please see model photos underneath:

I think most of us who ordered PC are aware of the additional manufacturing challenges. This seems like a pretty reasonable (and desirable) compromise to me.

If any of those aluminium ones come off as 'B-stock' because of bumps/scratches/etc I'd be more than happy to buy one un-finished. They look really good in raw metal.

Possibly but we still need to finish R1 first. Possible that there'll be some extras after this round ends.

They really do! But the factory isn't sending out raw metal ones and I believe that anything they let through as B-stock would be redone during manufacturing anyway.

Possibly during extras after GB ends but the plate files will be open-sourced. Should share those but don't know where exactly. QMK repo doesn't seem fitting for that.

Update 20200118

Heya... Apologies for the month-long silence.

  • All GB PCBs have been delivered to Upas
  • Case manufacturing is on-schedule and anodization is done. E-white and PC boards are nearing the end of manufacturing as well. No delays up to this point, let's keep it that way! ;D
  • TMOv2 will be VIA compatible and Upas has confirmed that it's very close to being "supported" officially.
  • Plate and weight files are HERE

Also - With the help of RealLaugh (thanks, mate!) I have couple of designs for the "Here we go boys..." sticker. Go HERE to vote on your favourite colourway/-s! I'll keep this open for a month or so.

On a side-note, I'm very thankful for everyone that is waiting for their board/-s. I've been using mine ever since I built it up during Christmas holidays and it's been a treat to use. If anyone is interested in the keymapping I use, here it is.

More

To nathanchere - there's 22 RGB LEDs as underglow so firstly I'd suggest programming those to work as indicators. Could look cool if maybe a bit too much to have them on all the time. :D

Hey!

Unfortunately not really updates as our factory in China has stalled work until February 17th due to Covid-19.
As far as we know most of the boards have been produced and was about to be QC'd and packed for shipment.
Covid-19 has delayed GB a bit but we're on track with ETA as we added a "safety net" on it from the start.

Also regarding the stickers. I closed the form just now (I forgot about it, my mistake).



So there's a tie between 9009 and Dualshot. I like both of the colourways so it's even harder to chose between them. WoB I is a close second.
Given there's already a "TMO" logo sticker planned in both white and black, I'd prefer to choose one colourway for "Here we go boys...".
