As to my decision to first only do a few, perhaps limited and dull colors, [...]

No worries, it's hard enough to choose between e-white and rose gold :D

Even if we order prototypes in these 3 colors, it doesn't mean I've completely set my mind on them
As always, I'm very open to input and your thoughts because I might be completely wrong in my way of thinking :)
Black, gray and e-white are always safe choices. I'd certainly go for e-white too.

Very interested! A dark blue FRL WKL TKL is one of the things I've been looking for

I would just wait for that then :)

I love it  - please don't add the cut outs to the side panels i like the solid look. Can you please advise if you are going to sell it like the original picture ? or is it going to have the side cut outs on it ?

Iím not including the side cuts in the final version :D

Split Space, Rose Gold, and Asthetic AF? Must cop for me.

Curious if this has been mentioned previously, but is the split space bar configuration fixed to 2.25u/1u/2.75u? Or would other options like 2.75/1/2.25 and, or 3/1/3 layouts be available as well? In any case, fixed split space bars or not, the board looks great. Wishing the protyping nothing but success  :thumb:

Good to hear!!
Yeah, sorry I made the plate to be fixed split space bar at 2.25/1.25/2.75. I just simply wanna include at least one split spacebar layout, instead of excluding it entirely!

How much will it be expected to cost? Also will it have split space bar options?

Price is estimated to be somewhere between $350-$450, we haven't decided a price just yet.
As for the split space bar, it looks like this and it's included all in the same plate:

Very interested in this! Would definitely be down for an E-White order based on pricing.

Looks fantastic, and a nice take on TKLs. I've been enjoying HHKB and now Tsangan layout, and this board finally makes Tsangan with split RShift/Backspace make sense in a TKL-size board.

Hmm, I think this board will make it as a good training ground for those wanting to dip their feet into HHKB :P

Yes, I just updated it to include split right shift, as I realized it's pretty much a must have for WKL layouts ;)

I love the Tenkeyless and function rows missing. This is exactly what I am looking for.

However, I'd much prefer a super small keyboard. The goal of removing all these keys is to get a compact keyboard.

I'm basically looking for a slim 70% with two more buttons.

I was also wondering if it is possible to have a hot swap for this keyboard? I'm going to want to play with the switches a lot :)

Like so many others have already stated, this might be my new fave form factor. Loved the Vortex Vibe but it felt claustrophobic. But then TKLs always seemed so big. Having effectively a 60% + TKL is perfect. I'm in.

Thanks! I also noticed the description mentions only supporting ANSI and ISO:


Quote
As for layout compatibility, in the first run with prototypes we're only looking at standard ANSI and ISO layouts.


Should mention that Tsangan is also supported (split backspace, split RShift, 1.5u-1u-1.5u-7u-1.5u-1u-1.5u bottom row) since that's differentiated from ANSI.

I'm actually surprised that there aren't more keyboards/PCBs with this layout. It's not exactly revolutionary, it's just a TKL with fewer keys, hah

I know right? Everybody is creating these ridiculous layouts, but this very logical layout is generally missing from the conversation.

Regarding the PCB, is there any way we can get a hotswap? This is my ideal layout, but I also want to use it for my hype switch addiction, lol!

Love the prototype photo. It looks like the Top edge in the initial renders has a larger depth, whereas in the prototype it is uniform with the Left, Right, and Bottom edges.

Was this intentional? Personally I would rather have a uniform edge depth but curious which one will be in the end product.
