Starting to look for things to sell.  I hope this does not become silly priced.
I started with a Sinclair human flesh keyboard in 1980 and it has never stopped.

Anyone know if the LEDs can be custom programmed and how it’ll be done?

See here.
LEDs:
It has many modes, you can customize the pattern like time, wavy lines and other not too complicated effects.(support USB 3.0)
There's not much word on how, but what we do know is that the programmability is not going to be QMK-based.

I'm wondering, do we really need to split the discussion between two IC threads for the same board? Maybe just use the official one, and a mod can lock this.

This is a refreshing design in the keyboard community in a long time, just hoping the chunkiness and LED functions to not drive up the price too high :x

Ok after seeing those prototype pics I'm 100% sold. I don't even care how much it costs I want one lol that purple one looks dank

shhh ;) let's try to keep it reasonable! but I really appreciate the fact that it's looking like interesting colors will be offered.

I would still like some info about how that front panel is powered, pcb and panel both get power through one usb cable perhaps?  :confused:

The lights are just going to be reflected by the computer screen and be annoying. Anyone who buys this is going to have the LEDs on for max five minutes before they are fed up with the gimmick.

With twice as many RGB LEDs as any full-size keyboard, few ports are going to power it. Forget even trying it with a laptop.

This. What’s the power draw on this if it’s powered by usb ?

- Matrix
- Time (hh:mm:ss).

What would be awesome is for it to be user controlled, addressable...

Lookup RAINBOWDUINO, maybe implementing it would be easier for you and more powerful to the end user, using an open standard platform seems like the best way to go for it.

Also please make sure that you have proper heat dissipation for those leds.

Typing speed detection of some sort. When you are typing slow, the leds are green. When you type faster, the leds will change color.

I definitely like the idea of a Matrix “rainfall” effect, with perhaps an ability to cycle through colors for that effect.

we've used 200 RGB LEDs(5*40), and the maximum power consumption is limited to 400 mA. USB 3.0 can handle this

it's a dedicated secondary microcontroller.

Cool. Is there any communication between the main keyboard MCU and the MCU that's in charge of the LED panel? It would be cool to at least connect the two of them via UART or I2C, to allow the possibility of controlling the LED effects directly from the keyboard firmware (e.g. QMK). I do realize that this requires some additional development effort on the firmware side, but if it isn't implemented immediately, it'd still be cool to leave it open for the future by having the hardware support it. Again, the two MCUs just need to be connected via UART or I2C for that to happen.

"Is there any communication between the main keyboard MCU and the MCU that's in charge of the LED panel? "  → yes, through SPI. And, we control the LED effects from the main keyboard MCU.

also, I'm sincerely asking, is it possible to use one main keyboard MCU to control all these things (LED effects)?
