Re: [IC] F100DGATE 100% Keyboard (v0.2 Update)

Since 100% are favored by those who want access to ALL THE KEYS, why not populate the right area with a bunch of macro/media keys?

Stay tuned, you might be happy with the v0.2 design  ;)

4. ISO layout - Yes hottrout this is for you, I agree that this will need an iso layout option, so I will need to work on a plate for that. It might not be in the next render, but it will be part of the final decision.


I am stating now that because of this and unless you go very far away from the initial design (which I like BTW), I will buy this board, as long as I get the chance.  I also urge all the ISO people to back this.  I agree that it does not need a screen or volume control but your logo would look great in that space and if you were to etch it into glass or acrylic and then side light it with an LED it would be something quite unique.

Keep up the great work.

Thought I was done with the 100% life, but this seemed interesting enough. I do like the design of the edges, but if they can be a little rounder it might turn out better. Also digging the top of the case, I appreciate cases with a big forehead. The sides seem a little bit wide, but we are talking about a 100%. Anyway came to the IC a little late, but excited to see what you have planned for v0.2.

I may be a bit late to this, but I am always on the lookout for a 100%, especially an alu one with a unique design like this.

I'll echo what some others have said about the deep cut for the branding. I would also be partial to an OLED or a slider personally, but I can appreciate that isn't for everyone. I don't mind the sharper edges though since I don't think rounder would look as good. Either way, still a fan of the design as is.

Looking forward to seeing what v0.2 looks like! Given how rare cool custom 100% seem to be, I'll definitely be a customer if this goes to GB.

Love where you are taking this and I like what you did with the top pen cut out.  Thank you for ISO so I am in at this point.  Keep this going, you are really onto something, just remember that us early backers would like a spot when the groupbuy madness opens. I really don't want to be in any more raffles.

Love it, oh and I love the F13, thats just quirky and cool.

Thanks for the kind feedback, later this week I plan on getting price quotes on manufacturing just to see what we are working with. I plan on reaching out to several places just to get a ballpark estimate based on 50 and 100 production units.

I feel that less is more when it comes to the groove you have on the board's forehead. It looked very classy when it was put with a sense of purpose instead of just having it come across the whole board. I will also miss the fact that the board is more compact at the top, but its still looking very good. The wave you have in the corner is a very nice touch. The rounded corners are a welcome addition as well.

Oh wow this redesign was more way more extensive than I was expecting, but I love it! A huge improvement over the previous version. The F13 placement right next to the new branding looks great.

I will keep my fingers crossed this goes to GB and I can get my hands on one.

Personally I love the F13 idea but what about volume as well?  It might ruin the design.

As mentioned previously, there will be no knobs or sliders. As a personal preference I really dislike them on keyboards and therefore will not be putting one on this board.

Understood and personally not an issue.  Just looking at the renders again and I really love the F13.  Such a simple addition but yet it makes the board unique.  Love it.

Redesign is very very nice!

Could the pen trough be made bigger for folks who carry rather large pens (fountain pens, machined pens, tactical pens, etc). That would also give them the option to line it with felt or something in case they don't want to scratch the case top with the pen.

Oh man, I've wanted something like this for a while now. My three main criticisms are:
The bezels are a touch too thick for my liking
I'd prefer a slightly darker finish to make it match my setup better, but again, personal preference
I feel like that top right corner could be filled with something other than a logo, such as more keys, or maybe a slider/oled screen like others have suggested.
Otherwise, this design looks perfect to me and I'd be willing to buy one.

Just spotted your IC the other day. It's great that you're going for a full size. Even though I'm getting used on a TKL right now, I still feel a full size is just so much quicker to use. Your design is great and +1 for ISO support!

Interesting pen channel design, wish it ended just shy of the very edge so that a little of the edge chamfers retained their face, outlining the channel profile with a consistent radius throughout.
