[IC] PBT Græn
« 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
 
 
Interest Check Form

 
 

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
 
We're still currently waiting for final pricing and I'll post it as soon as I have it.
I'll even post it using a nifty chart so you can see price by proxy. <3
 
 
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/

Minivan
 

 
 
Viktus Styrka

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

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...

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...

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!!!
