I might end up resin printing a case to save money.

Thanks for the update.

I'm looking to own at least one board at each layout - 40%, 60%, 65%, 75%, and TKL.

I got the Whimsy as my 40%. Just need to see the production aluminum prototypes, and you got my money. Good luck my man.

Any news on Knobs? It's make or break for me, the rendered X knob is so awesome but finding a cool knob will be so tough :/

I love it!

How does one access the values on the rotary encoder?

QMK supports it, so you just put a little block of code in the keymap to dictate what you want it to do.

I suspect itíll come bound to volume or something by default.

I have never been in for a 40% but this is the first one that looks absolutely like I want it!

The only thing that might put me off is the sale through your own store.

I donít think itís concrete yet (from looking through the Discord channel) whether the knobs will be standard encoder knobs (the ones that tend to come with the encoders themselves) or custom ones. Weíll have to wait and see whatís shown when the GB goes live, I believe.

For anyone not following the Discord or their website:

Group Buy is now predicted to be in March due to prototypes being about 10-15 working days away from arriving at this point for all the colours.

I've wondered what keyboard they were using in the renders for the KAM Superuser GB and I finally found it!

Signed up for updates.

Stoked!

I'm in on this for sure.

Now that I know when this is running, I started looking for keycaps because in keeping with the whimsical theme, I think I'm going to do something as pink as possible. GMK Peach Blossom seems like it'd be perfect for the bubblegum pink cerakote, but of course none of the kits have a 1.25u enter, 1.5u backspace or a 1.5u shift.

I now understand on a visceral level why all of the guys from the 40s Discord immediately chime in on every keyset IC and are quick to correct 40s kittings - mad frustrating  :mad:

Haha, yeah - I'm planning on putting Bento on mine and even with the 40s kit and the novelty kit, I can't quite fill it properly. It's got a 1.5 backspace, at least, but I'll have to use a R4 novelty for both the enter key and the shift key.

I feel like if I only get one 40% board, this is the one.

I have no idea how a 40% would be practical to me, but this board is so freaking beautiful and I want one.
