Story
Hi! AKI-S is the first project that I'm fully involved in and calls are mainly made by me (while BOCC was collaboration with a friend). I chose to use AKI as my signature as it represents 2 of my favorite elements, Japanese culture and Autumn. Upon entering the custom scene, trying different kinds of layouts, I found that 65% is the one that I find it most likable. It's compact, it's packed with necessary utility that I wouldn't need to compromise too much by re-programming the needed keys. In light of that, I chose to use 65% as my first project.

As for the series code: S. It represents another element I like the most - snowflake. This is also the reason why the bottom weight engraving will be a snowflake. Combining the 3 favorite elements of mine into one, I hope this board will become something much more than what's given to it.


Design inspiration

More
I adore sleek, seamless and timeless design. Although I'm not a car enthusiast, I've always liked the design of sport cars, namely Porsche, McLaren, Lamborghini. With that in mind, I hope to create a board that resembles the slim, streamlined design that we can always see from sport cars, or more precisely, luxury cars. I want this board to be unique in terms of aesthetics, no matter its when in use - front face, or for displaying purpose.

I opt in for a symmetric blocker design. This means that there will be less flexibility in customizing the bottom row because of the fixed bottom row layout. The reason behind this is that its all about sleek, streamlined and visually homogeneous. Symmetric blockers seem to fit the theme better. I understand that there will be compromises for those who use winkey a lot. I, myself too. The bright side is that we can always program the board to our liking!


Why no blocker, why no gasket

There have been a lot of upper right blocker 65 recently. Although it is a great way to express the uniqueness of a board, I'd like to spice it up and refrain from adopting the prevalent expression; instead, I added an accent bar that is embedded in the top case, hoping to accentuate the sport car theme better, as if its a back-light from the rear of a fancy sport car. To further complement the case, we will offer a, if not several choices of stickers for you to complement the top case with some styles.

Gasket has been a heavily appreciated addition to the custom scene in the recent blooming community. I personally believe that a stronger and robust mounting system with solid case enclosure design will help alleviate the typing experience over adding a few gasket rubbers here and there to reduce the possible reverbs caused from typing. And thus gasket rubbers will not be adopted for this kit.

    Possible FAQ
    Quote
    When are you expecting to hold this GB?

    At the moment, please allow me to finish fulfilling the GB orders of BOCC. I'm holding this IC because it takes at least a month, if not months to finalize the details on everything, and at the moment, besides waiting for the factories to resume to their work stations after the coronavirus outbreak, I could only plan things ahead so I could smoothen the experience and get things done quicker when the BOCC GB is concluded. Back to the question, there is no set time frame as of now until I'm satisfied with the prototype.

    Quote
    Can you take away the bottom left engraving?

    That isn't an engraving, instead, it's a metallic sticker. It is an add-on that can be purchased when you joined the GB. Now we offer an option for you to choose whether you want it to be engraved onto the top case or not.

    Quote
    Will there be full brass version?

    Not at the moment. I'm pretty sure its already pretty heavy with the middle and bottom brass weight on its own.

    Quote
    Will there be another future run for this if I missed the GB?

    It depends on the reception of the board. If there is a lot of demands for the board, I'm flattered and would be happy to bring it back.

    Development Log
    log date: 22nd Aug, 2020

    Since I'm inevitably going to place R3 prototypes, regardless of which factory I'm going for. So I may as well make this announcement.

    Originally, I was planning to do this when/if there is R2 of AKI-S. I've already planned this, even ahead of R1 GB. I didn't want to do this because I thought it would not only require me to financially invest more into the project, but also it will stall the GB further if I cannot pull this off perfectly with only one round of prototyping; and that the current version works perfectly - if they were prototyped properly.

    So what am I talking about? I'm talking about redesigning AKI-S. DON'T PANIC.

    I'm not redesigning the whole thing, like scraping the whole idea, nor the aesthetic of the board will face a big change. What's gonna be changed, or rather, a more appropriate term of phrase would be streamlined, is as follows (please note that the following are merely concepts that I'm trying to make it happen, they are subject to change),

    1. Screw-less, which means you will not see the screw holes from outer case.
    2. Streamlining the internal designs to make it more clean
    3. Layered bottom weight

    All of which will affect every bits of the blueprints we currently have. From the blueprint of the case itself, to the PCB, they all would require overhaul redesign. I will try my best to do what's best for the community. As a board that symbolizes the start of my own project, I will make sure its perfect and up to my own standard - which can be witnessed through in the development log I will be updating in the subsequent weeks.



    log date: 21nd Aug, 2020

    I'm writing this with heavy heart because I'd never think that I would need to start a development log for a single kit. Although I never want to overestimate the factory's efficiency and my ability to make a perfect kit right off the bat, I'd never imagine a prototype phase that would cost me 4 months of waiting and 8 disappointing kits, in total.

    Am I thinking to switch another factory? Yes. But I will address that someday later in another development log. Let me focus on what's wrong with the R2 prototypes.

    First off, the most obvious, but also most dumbfounded part for me was that, R2 prototype is essentially the same as R1. Yes, you heard me right, t h e   s a m e.

    Hear me out, I will address it, hopefully, in an orderly fashion.

    So, after R1 prototype, I understood what's wrong on my side, I improved upon it. I was not specific enough with my instructions (maybe), so I tried to make it better when I placed R2 order. From [figure 1], you could see that the scale of which the R2 instruction table (bottom) is entirely different from the first attempt (top). The instructions were so specific to a point I told them step by step how it should be done, from a factory perspective.

    Changes that should have been made in R2 prototype:
    A) Fill up the hole that is sitting on top of the USB-C daughter board pod
    B) Increase the height of the overall board by 0.3mm (superficially speaking)
    C) Simplify weight design by taking away the logo and keyboard name

    From [figure 2], you can tell that R2 prototype (left) didnt reflect what was suppose to be (right). It essentially means that the R2 prototype is actually the same as R1 structurally beside the engraving of "Prototype MKII" on the bottom case.
    Factory side also committed several, if not a lot of discernable mistakes, which are
    A) Color mismatch [figure 3, 4]
    (Yes, I'm aware that Pantone color for metal chip should be referencing TPM, well, different factory has different approach; and that colors IRL are vastly different from HEX code. But factory guy himself had already admitted this was their fault on their end.)
    B) Didn't make 2 plates (according to the instructions given) [figure 5]
    C) Didn't produce the accents and weight as per request [figure 6]
    D) Didn't hand polish the sidelines to make the watermark less visible [figure 7]
    E) Broken promise of 2 weeks of fulfillment, instead it took 1.5 months

    Quality check from factory side is also very concerning
    A) Accent bars are not well polished [figure 8]
    B) Noticeable scratch on PVD accents, top case and middle weight [figure 9]
    C) Unknown marks on PC case [figure 10]

    Thought on R2 prototype:

    The good:
    - PVD coating seems marginally better than R1
    - Multi-Coated color of accent bar and weight were done right

    The bad:
    - Wasted 1000+ on prototypes that doesnt help push forward GB progress
    - Wasted 4 months of time and let the hit die (although this project didnt receive that much attention on GH :kekt: )
    - Didn't execute the instructions properly made me very furious
    - IDK, I'm just broke at this point, mentally and financially.

    Arrangement:

    Pending to talk to those c--ts about their faults and cannot wait to throw the file I've compiled to their face and see how those motherf--kers would react.

    Practical solution:
    - Swap factory (ideally)
    - Current factory offers generous compensations
    - Catch up on the progress (which is most important)

    Thoughts:
    1. although without PCB, the sound is pretty nice with cherry black
    2. there are some alarming issues, which will be elaborated in the following
    3. the overall finish is pretty nice, although I'm not quite satisfied
    4. further testing with PCB on it will be required in order to fully test the feasibility of the project
    5. engrave is alright
    6. accent bar is naturally bent because of how thin it is; but after installing it properly, it is flattened and does not look bent when in use
    7. factory has made **** tons of mistakes and it made me pissed

    Problems:
    1. accent bar is too close to the caps, you might say its tenderly kissing the top of the cap, I will have to make adjustment around that
    2. factory didnt standardize the standards for manufacturing bottom weight and accent bar due to the nature of electrophoresis finish; this would require further discussion with factory to streamline the design and manufacture process
    Quote
    this results in the fact that this white case has no bottom weight and can only pair with red accent bar (factory's fault)
    3. I've left a hole on top of USB-C port because I'm not sure whether PCB will hit the bottom case if I fill it up, it will be tested when the proto PCB arrives

    Arrangement:
    1. I will possibly order another prototype after I do all the necessary adjustment, which means the GB date will very likely be pushed back; I want it to be perfect, not half baked, so sorry for those who are eagerly waiting for it to start
    2. At the end of the day, when the GB ends, I might just sell this off as B stock because I have no use nor space to keep them

    Awesome design, really caught my eye! I especially like the markings on the bottom left of the case. Personally I agree with the blocker on the top right being overdone since the 910 & like the more traditional 65% layout myself. I always use that spot as my Delete key with Pg up, Pg Dn, & Fn below it. So losing that spot really throws of my favorite key mappings for a 65%. Anyways this looks like a really great board, I'll be keeping my eye out for updates!

    Will accent & case colours be sold as a set? Or will everyone be free to choose their own colour pairings?

    Interested to know how many accent colours will be avail, I'd imagine offering too many would be a logistical nightmare.

    More renders to come, thank you for your interest.
    It's more of a way to express, chill bro ;)

    Interested to know how many accent colours will be avail, I'd imagine offering too many would be a logistical nightmare.

    Current plan is that (if we offer less than 4 colors in total, not including mid weight color here) -

    > Choose top case color
    > Choose middleweight color
    > Choose bottom case color
    > Choose accent color (available in extras as well)

    Otherwise, we would prefer

    > Choose a set

    I think jaes was the only other one, and none have set GB dates. Plenty of time to flesh out design, make changes, renders and prototypes. This isn't some kind of render race to win XD.

    Accent is beautiful, but may be better to place it a tiny bit higher!

    Right?! I don't really need another keyboard this year, but I'm super tempted to jump on this just to combo those two together.

    I kinda like it peaking through the back of the keys, like a samurai waiting to strike from the tree-line.

    i need this keyboard how much is this one going to be going for?


    Q: How much are we looking at?
    A: Currently we have no idea because the factory is still on holiday, if not self quarantining under the effect of emergency law imposed lately across the nation. Once we get to confirm the blueprint with the related parties, we will announce the information.

    I know its a long shot, but any chance for split space support?

    Sorry man, currently we are not looking to support split space; we might change our mind before the GB starts, but chances are slim.

    I really really like the accent bar and double blockers.
    Hope to see some pictures of the underside and internals soon, but very interested and watching for sure.

    More renders to come, thank you for your support!

    By any chance did you forget to fillet the inner corners? They seem pretty sharp on the edges or is that a feature?

    board aside, the formatting of this IC is very nice and concise. Others would do well to implement a similar checklist IMO.

    I like it, I just wish there was a way to collapse the non-chosen options, or maybe a summary list of whats available at the end. It's cool to see the thought process, but in the end those options aren't/weren't ever available to us anyway.

    AKI-S, S stands for snowflake.
    I didn't explain it in the context, which is my bad.
    AKI stands for autumn yes, but it's more of a signature of my product, I'd like the engraving matches the model than my signature.
