Very interested, even though I've never gone under 65% before. I love the black and chrome!
Any update on whether it will be VIA configurable, and ESD?

I don't know how to quote, but I agree with konstantin's sentiment that multicoloured indicator lights wouldn't really suit colour-themed builds, unless you can configure the colours. I'd prefer separate indicator lights than underglow.

Only bonus would be hotswap but that would probably reduce layout compatibility. Very keen to see it progress!

This will have ESD protection. The lights are RGB and are color addressable.

Well, I just hope it won't run too soon. Filled the IC form.

Is there any option for the rotary encoder in the right column? I personally detest artisans in any way, so encoder would make this space at least reasonable.

BTW, +1 for HHKB blocker option on the left.

I love the design and the board looks really beautiful, however I just am not able to give up on the number row.  I hope this comes back again with numbers.  Good luck on a great looking board.

I type pretty comfortably on my little orthos and the main thing stopping me from going after any of these cute layout miniboards is not including all the alphas (besides number row).  But sometimes I wish my planck could just have t nav arrows and a couple extra keys for things I don’t want to waste time hitting function layers for.  You nailed all that critieria, but then add gaskets, stagger, separated cluster aesthetics... I’m in.
That red color choice is ridiculously appealing!

I am definitely following this, just need to look for some $1213 and $583 artisans now.

My question is why it is called 1213 and 583 instead of 3294932748723 or 3

In theory there were going to be Chrome PVD Brass but we're working on getting some quotes to see about polished Stainless Steel. Stay tuned!

This will be sick! Stainless steel might be more cost-efficient and more easy to achieve I think. I am totally done with PVD'ing large items.

fortunately the exposed portion of the weight is flat and of small surface area. Unlike many weight designs that feature a large rectangle, only the penguin peaks through. Similar to the Think you put on my shelf :)

Thanks for your quick reply. Excited for this board. If you are at all considering it, I would definitely pay extra for hotswap.
Also, what are you thinking regarding a GB limit? I hope it isn't impossible to buy.

It's not going to be a super hard limit. Looking to be 200 worldwide but still TBD
