Even if it's not rama, I would love to see a rose gold ano knob as an option. They are impossible to find anywhere.
This and the swiss cheese keyboard is the next generation of keyboards

Yes please, I’m wondering how easy it’ll be to find a knob that fits my preference. Hoping for some options with the GB.

I can't do 40% layout but the design is great and I really like the OLED and rotary placements on the board. If this ever gets a big brother in the 65-75% range, I'd be in for sure.

I'm with this guy. Would looove to see this a little bigger someday. For now though, amazing work and good job on almost tempting me to get a 40%.

This is the cutest keyboard ever

But I don't think I could ever use a 40%, and it would be a shame to just have it as a display piece

Really hoping that you will have a similar aethestic in a 65%+ or Alice in the future !

Will there be prototype photos?

Also, this line doesn't make sense to me "I'm aiming to keep the price of Whimsy down, this would mean that there will most likely be a low MOQ ensure costs stay down."

Higher MOQ means lower costs per unit. Producing lower units does not give you cheaper prices; in fact it serves the opposite. Did you mean high MOQ?

Based off of the comments that Ulliam has made in this thread I'd believe so. It really seems like they're trying to keep the final price down.

Sure seems like it, though I think if it keeps a ~$250 price point we probably won't have any issue hitting even an unreasonably high MOQ. I've never owned a 40% and am pretty adamant on copping this one!

Same


I think this will be my first 40% too just for the cool design factor.


I would really want to see prototypes first, though. It seems all that's shown are renders? Unless those are some meticulously perfect photos.

Ohhh nice, hopefully everything can get sorted out and the GB will happen before the end of the month. $235 isn't bad for a board like this either! Also, is it just me, or do the website renders for the pink board seem very bright? It looks like bubblegum, but a quick google search for 'bazooka pink cerakote' shows it's more similar to light pink shown on the renders in this IC.

Still no word on knobs?
