[IC] PBT Græn - Group Buy Live
« on: Sun, 22 March 2020, 19:25:36 »
Welcome to the Interest Check for PBT Græn [ɡrān]
 
 

 
 
Soothing, mystérieuse, cold, brooding...all and more could be used to describe the main color used in this set.
The one thing I cannot seem to come to an accord with is whether it's a green or a gray...I'm certain it's both.

 
Ergo: Græn
 
 
Group Buy Thread

 
 

Les Couleurs

Alphas/Mods: https://www.pantone.com/color-finder/560-UP
Text/Khaki Accent: https://www.pantone.com/color-finder/4250-UP
Red Accent: https://www.pantone.com/color-finder/7427-C

 
Note: I do have physical samples of all the colors already to match to when the matching process begins.
 
 
Comparaison

I have been made aware of discussions around my first keyset, GMK Café, and it being similar to some other popular sets in the community.
So, here's a comparison to some other popular sets that appear very similar to Græn for anyone who may be having trouble telling them apart:


 
 
Le Fourbi

Base Kit


Mega Add-On Kit


Les Prix
 
Base - $95 USD
Mega Add-On - $50 USD
Deskmats - $20 USD

I will add a spreadsheet with all proxy final pricing SoonTM*
 
 
The set will be en vente from these fine folks:

US - TheKey.Company https://thekey.company/
EU - Proto[Typist] Keyboards https://prototypist.net/
Asia - zFrontier https://www.zfrontier.com/
Australia - SwitchKeys https://www.switchkeys.com.au/
Canada, eh? - Deskhero https://www.deskhero.ca/
 
 

Images D'ordinateur
 
 
Viktus Styrka
 

 
 
Godspeed
 

 
 
Iron180
 

 
 
Adélie
 

 
 
Minivan
 

 
 
 

Tapis de bureau
 
I, personally, own far too many deskmats - but I'm going to keep buying them anyway...
So, if you're like me, here's some deskmats I like a lot.

Thank you for the kind words!

Ergo support was something I had thought about; however, I'm not sure about Infinikey's capacity for that - please leave a note in the IC (if you haven't already) and I'll address it - can't make promises, but I'll ask <3

The way their kitting works I wanted to leave it to the originally intended accent in the base kit; however, knowing some folks would definitely prefer the khaki to the red as an accent I put it in the add-on kit. So, to answer your question: at this time, unless there's appetite for it in the form, I likely won't add the khaki accents to the base.

I speak no French and did it for hipstery, cliché purposes. I really wanted to lean into cliché as much as I could with this set since it's basically the keyset equivalent of selective color photography. See: https://i.ytimg.com/vi/-hkfz15ju38/maxresdefault.jpg That said, I am proud of the set nonetheless

One vote from me for the red color of the accents to be used for a modifiers kit!

Some modest musings:

- Quite an interesting colorway (I'd skip the kahki keys and keep that color for the legends only, but that's my personal taste; I appreciate that those keys are off the base kit).

- I dig that you included four R1 blanks. I dig both numpad equals keys (have you considered a numpad comma?).

- My only complaint would be about swapping one R3 key from the base kit with one from the mega add-on kit (one guess as to which ones).

- How about an extra Æ in R4, to serve the oft-forgotten Ælice kæyboards?

- Renders have F1..F10 in the EF block (the "macro block" for the young whippersnappers), but I don't see the R2..R4 F keys in either kit. The inclusion of an R4 Caps Lock key screams for 'em.

Thank you for taking the time for this - I appreciate it greatly! Especially "Ælice kæyboards" lol - well played, sir.

I'll certainly consider your points - for your last point about the different row profile F keys, that's a good idea but I worry about peoples' preferences in this regard. I know some vintage keyboards like the model F XT have oddly placed F keys vs. how I would put them in that column. I just fear I'd have to provide nearly a whole F row for each profile for something that is quite niche, tbh. Now, that being said, I may be misunderstanding your meaning - please correct me if I'm being obtuse, which I am quite frequently...

Love the desk mats

Awesome - I am a big fan too! Much love and credit to OCM for doing the work on them - he really really brought my vision to life in a way I couldn't have imagined.

I keep coming back to this set, ever since you've posted it----

Its amazing! so soothing -- 100% in  :thumb:

Thank you for the kind words! I also find the color soothing - I love it. I am obsessed with it, vexed by it... I must have it on a keyboard...

Don't apologize, nobody was offended in the French community. I personnaly like your set, and I appreciated you put French in your IC.  :)
Nuthin but love <3

Thank you!

One vote from me for the red color of the accents to be used for a modifiers kit!

Attached a basic paint render using Sparta's mods just to get an idea how it would look like ;)

I'd be lying if I told you I didn't like this. I had actually thought of this before and tried it out in rendertown, USA. I felt it was a bit too...Christmasy? If that's a word? It was a bit of a departure from what I had originally intended on doing when I chose the colors for the set. That being said, it's something to consider further on my end I think; although, to be candid, it's unlikely (not impossible though).

Regardless, thank you for your time and effort on making a good example for us to see!! <3

- Renders have F1..F10 in the EF block (the "macro block" for the young whippersnappers), but I don't see the R2..R4 F keys in either kit. The inclusion of an R4 Caps Lock key screams for 'em.


for your last point about the different row profile F keys, that's a good idea but I worry about peoples' preferences in this regard. I know some vintage keyboards like the model F XT have oddly placed F keys vs. how I would put them in that column. I just fear I'd have to provide nearly a whole F row for each profile for something that is quite niche, tbh. Now, that being said, I may be misunderstanding your meaning - please correct me if I'm being obtuse, which I am quite frequently...

You're right about being obtuse regarding my acute observation. Let's see how can I angle this...  :D

To serve the needs of the weirdos who believe the XT/AT layout for the function keys is better than what the Enhanced layout provides, you'd need to have (besides the R1 F1..F12 keycaps in the base kit) at least eight more keys (presumably in the add-on kit): R2 F3 and F4, R3 F5 and F6, R4 F7..F10; perhaps ten keys (as before, plus two more R1 F1 and F2), to have both the F row and the EF block complete.

This would mean adding eight or ten more keys in the add-on kit, for the benefit of ¿not that many users? I just pointed this issue out because it called my attention that the EF function keys are present in the renders but not in the actual kit.

Here's an adjacent thought.  For some who need these extra 1U keycaps, function labels would be redundant.

I would personally love to see a Korean/Hangul add-on. There are far too few good quality Korean sets in PBT. When certain websites have them in stock, they sell out very quickly. None of those look as well as it would in this color option though AND it would be in PBT!!!

150 of you have left feedback and we are working on some kit changes that I hope will please a lot of you. Sadly, I'm sure some of you will be disappoint - but we all make choices, amirite?

Much love nonetheless - I hope you're healthy and safe <3

First, and most most importantly: thank you.

Thank you for taking the time to comment, leave feedback, give praise, or share your disdain for this - I love and appreciate it all.

There has been concern about the shortness of the IC to GB and whether we intended to collect and actually honor feedback.
I am laying out decisions to let you know we have read the feedback, all of which we appreciate, whether we're changing things or not.
Please understand this project is something I started in November and much of it was already decided for one reason or another based on original intent
My apologies - I know much was not accommodated.

We are adding umbrella novelties, an R3 pgup, and an R4 pgdn
Proposed adjustments we did not change:
   2u "+" numpad accents - some felt strongly about this, but we've decided to keep them for funzies
   accent arrows in base - to be consistent with most of the accents outside of the original vision, these will remain in the add-on kit
   Full on kits for French, NorDe, International, blanks, ergo, etc.  - to be honest, even if we put all of these into one giant kit it wouldn't hit MOQ and the price would be higher than than desired
   I know some folks don't like the "<--Bksp" key - I happen to think it's hekkin cute and am keeping it, personally

Yes, the kits are, in fact, huge. That's the way Infinikey works and how they factor in their MOQ - for some, this seems like a waste to buy such a large kit to use so few keys, a la planck users.

The name - I am aware of how the aesch is pronounced - I used it in a way I thought was "clever" to nod at the fact that the set can seem both green and gray. Thank you for pointing out that it's wrong,  but I made an AESTHETIC choice here <3

Finally, there were a lot of comments for more accents or and additional/different modifier and alpha kits - it's just not the vision I wanted.

I hope none of you take offense, and if you do: I'm sorry. Either buy the set or don't - I'm still gonna be your fwen if you like.

It's a group buy so it can't sell out; the more sets are ordered, the better. Either the set hasn't gone live in Europe yet, or Jae temporarily marked it as sold out in order to adjust something on the product page.

Now it's active! Sorry for phrasing it badly, I thought the run was somehow limited even if it's a group buy. Thanks!

Yep it was the Coming Soon page that was visible until the GB went live. GB is now live on the site :D

Don't apologize, nobody was offended in the French community. I personnaly like your set, and I appreciated you put French in your IC.  :)
This guy is def not French. There is no way you can be French and admit you like something that didn't originate from France.
