This looks really cool. I have one question: What does the hole on the knob do?

I assume it's where you screw it in, so that it doesn't fall off.

Definitely interested! Really like the fact that it's only usb-c.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but they are changing that and only the central port is USB C, with the outside ports changing to USB A.

There is a message in their Discord for this one that says:

"Whilst it was our initial goal to use USB-C 3.1 we would also like to launch the group buy sooner rather than later and have decided to switch to USB-A 2.0. "

And:

"Will all of the ports be changing to USB-A 2.0?  The central port will remain as USB-C 2.0, only the port on the left and right are changing."

tbh I actually like that a lot more with the outside ports being normal usb-a. with usb-c you would have to buy all new c-to-c cables.

I also agree with this. Would make it pretty easy to use as a charging station. I do wonder if you could use it as a usb hub though, for plugging in usb drives and such.

This has me interested. I'd love to know if the macropad will be sufficiently weighted so that having a couple USB cables plugged won't make it move around.

Awww... that's a downer. I would much prefer USB C. USB A would be too hideous looking.

Absolutely love everything about this! Checking off every aspect of a macro-pad that i'm after, i'm 100% hopping on board!
Looking forward to hearing more on this :)

Would you have a link to the Discord? Wouldn't want to miss any info given it's already August 2nd. I tried looking on their site but I only find their IG and Twitter page.

We are currently in the process of finalising the CU7 design, but we are considering making the following change and wanted to hear your feedback on the decision.


This change is not 100% confirmed. 

C


hange: 

1) Changing the interface from 2x USB-A and 1 USB-C to 2xUSB-A (removal of USB-C).


Reasoning: 

We are considering making this change because keeping all 3 ports is creating several issues.


Firstly, the ports will sit flush with the case and the difference between the USB-C and USB-A ports is causing them to not be aligned and therefore is not visually pleasing.


Secondly the base plate screws have moved to under the rubber feet but as the PCB is so busy it is proving difficult to place the standoffs going through the case without coming into contact with other components.


Other than this the CU7 is almost complete and we are looking to move forward as soon as a decision on the design has been made. We want to know how this proposed change would impact your decision to join the group buy.

Personal opinion: I would much prefer one USB-C port over two USB-A. Having two USB-A ports on the back means that the cable going to the host device will be off-centre which may be jarring if there's nothing else plugged in to the other USB-A.

CU7

We have returned to the previous interface of 2xUSB-A and 1xUSB-C.
We aim to release more product and group buy information this month!

Super excited to find out more, hoping different colour options will be available!
