[IC] ION x ai03: Parallax | Modern Unsaver
« on: Wed, 01 April 2020, 17:07:07 »
ai03 and ION Keyboards Presents
PARALLAX
Compact battleship Unsaver PCB mount keyboard







Specially Engineered Comfort

Building upon previous development with Equinox, Parallax uses a gasket sandwich PCB mount for thorough typing comfort.  PCB mount not your thing?  Grab the open-sourced plate file and have a plate made in your choice of materials if you prefer traditional top mount.






A Layout Adapted for Today and Tomorrow

With 34 function keys and up to 9 arrow keys, Parallax allows for unparalleled direct input and macros while having fewer keys than a typical 108 key keyboard. Modular blockers allow switching the right cluster between full, unsaver, and TKL modes.



Specifications

Typing angle: 7 deg
Case material: 6063 Aluminum
Mount: PCB mount (Provisions for a top mounted plate will be available as well as an open-source plate file)
PCB: QMK/VIA supported PCB designed by ai03
Modular arrow cluster blockers
Mass: ~3.2kg without a weight, ~4kg with
Case colors: TBD
Cost: TBD
GB Date: TBD
Vendors: TBD



Layouts





Timeline

I approached ai03 around May of 2019 with this idea.  We have been working on it off and on since then.  Launching the IC on April Fools Day seemed only appropriate, but I can assure you this is very real.  We are in the process of finalizing the design and going to prototyping.



FAQ

Q. What keyset compat do I need?
A. Vertical fn-row, as well as 24 fn-keys by either a dedicated kit or two fnrow kits

Q. Can you choose to not use the arrow blockers?
A. Absolutely.

Q. Will this actually happen?
A. Yes, if there’s enough demand

Btw, this is a serious project we are interested in doing, we just felt it would be appropriate to release it today for obvious reasons.  No solid timeline as of yet, but we will continue to take feedback and collect interest.  :thumb:

I definitely 100% would cop this as my first custom keyboard!

Layout is perfect for my liking where I could use the 2 F rows for more macros.

Hope this becomes a GB. :fingers_crossed:

The is plenny of potential macros on the top section. Why not sacrifying some to put an Oled screen module ?

I really like all those extra key. I see great potential for working purpose (Image content, Programming etc...)

I will definitely keep an eye on.

While they’re at it, a premium remake of a Weytek MK06 would be excellent ^-^

Commented previously, but I also support the ISO movement. Would make use of 2100HAD caps that I have on hand. Much love for the board. I have no doubt this will be pricy, but with you two designing it, it is bound to be amazing.

MT3 Serika has a novelties pack which wouldn’t be bad for the top row and also has M1-M10 which would cover the left-side keys. SA Nuclear data has M1-M12. Lemme know if you find better.

Excellent. Now... if you bare with me for a moment...

Please consider adding the Esc key and separating the F keys into three clusters of 4×2 keys, as is standard on PC keyboards. That way, you get to enjoy the goodness of all the extra keys AND avoid the trouble of screwing with everyone's muscle memory. And, mind you, I'm typing this right now on my IBM F122, so I oughta know. :D

The board is based on the IBM Unsaver, which never was a full size keyboard.

This is also a board with 34 function keys, you can easily make those function keys replace any full size board keys you're missing.

TBH I don't personally see much benefit here since it would still be out of position compared to normal.  Different spacing and angled.

To my eyes it looks... too angular, too simple, like the Unsaver was used just as an idea for how the keys should be arranged, not for the overall look. From my point of view, a modern take on the Unsaver should also have some some of it's details (like curves).

Edit:
Also, your design seems more inspired from the IBM 73x3832 Quiet Touch (the rubber dome version of the Unsaver), than from the Model F Unsaver 1387033, which is the desirable one in the collector world.

That is mostly true.  It's not meant as a 1:1 replica, more an homage to the layout I guess.  The design itself is more mixed with my current style with a slight nod to old Cherry boards.  We are still tweaking though so we'll see where it goes from here.

Yeah, an early draft was actually very very close to a 2100 but we decided it would be better to change it up a bit.

I would pay over the odds for this with HHKB blockers on the main 60% block. If you're considering WKL. please consider HHKB too :D

WKL is due to the historical significance, since this project draws heavily from the Cherry G80-2100 and 2500 series.
Since the HHKB is unrelated to the board, it will likely not be offered as an option.

If anyone is looking at this and wondering what keyset would work, CRP R3 has 2551 HAD which contains the full left and right clusters as well as double F-row (despite the laughable compatibility of the rest of the sets)

ANSI is supported in the added keys below the main layout. I think they just showed the full ISO layout to be true to the original 2551.

Yeah I'd say the ANSI key sizes are supported. It's just that some letters and symbols are printed in a different place. That said I'm still super tempted.

Is there any chance you could make it possible to swap the right shift key and the 1U key to the right of it in the alternate layout (so that 1U key would go on the left)?

This would make it possible to have a correctly-configured JIS layout as well as ISO. See Apogee's layout diagram for an example of what I mean.

Just trying to do the math here... I need one of these. But with the FN rows on the left side and  the need for 24 FN keys up top. Does that mean 3 keycap sets needed to fill this board? Or does any keycap set (with child kits) come close to compatibility(right row profiles but just wrong legends)? One idea is while running this keyboard also run a set of gmk relegendables in classic colors like og space keys.
