Great! Thanks for the amazing communication. Will be placing my order when this GB is listed(already filled out the form). Any estimate on when this will drop?

We are planning to launch the GB in May, hopefully, everything can go smoothly.

Just saw the update. Sad that black isnít available anymore, but I can still make grey work. Also thanks for the switch to south-facing switches!

Lol, sorry for the misunderstanding, what I mean is besides black and red, maybe add one more color option.

The PCB will still be hot swappable, correct? ;D

I'm sorry if I've already asked any of these questions on the Discord server, but I'll post them here so that anyone can read them.

These questions are for the 2nd round group buy because I have to wait for ISO support:
1) Will there be a grey case?
2) Will there be the possibility for a high profile case?
3) Can the PCB become compatible with standard 60% cases like most PCBs do?
4) Have you decided if you're using Bluetooth 4.0 or 5.0? What are the benefits of 5.0?
EDIT:
5) Will we be able to request the keyboard with Cherry MX Silent Red switches?

Thanks!

Yeah, I'm very glad to meet you here again. Here is the answer.
1) Will there be a grey case?  Very probably
2) Will there be the possibility for a high profile case? I don't think so:(
3) Can the PCB become compatible with standard 60% cases like most PCBs do? No one knows, maybe will compatible with GH60
4) Have you decided if you're using Bluetooth 4.0 or 5.0? What are the benefits of 5.0? I think it's 5.0, faster and greater range.
EDIT:
5) Will we be able to request the keyboard with Cherry MX Silent Red switches? Yeah, for sure

I mentioned this on the form, but when you get to the second round group buy, please consider the following on top of ISO support if you don't already have them:

1) Support for a split backspace (relatively common on 60% boards)
2) Support for a split right-shift key with the 1U on the left.  GH60, DZ60, and various other boards support this.
3) Support for a "minila" style split space key. On the original minila this is split in three with sizes 1.25, 3, 1.25.  Support for this is very rare; the only PCB I'm aware of that has it is the GH60 (the DZ60 doesn't  :()

This would be enough to offer full support for JIS layouts with keys either side of the space bar for switching between English and Japanese, which would be just awesome in a bluetooth keyboard -- I am not aware of another bluetooth PCB that offers this.  Those keys can also be useful as function keys even if you don't use JIS; see the ANSI Filco Minila for an example of them in use.

I know this may be out of scope for what you are considering but I just wanted to point it out as if you were going to add these things doing it at the same time as ISO would make a lot of sense.  We JIS users are starved of usable PCBs :(

Very good point, we didn't get any requirements from Japan before, we will definitely consider this.

Thanks! Even if you donít offer it as an option for your fully-built keyboards, just having support for it in the PCB would be really helpful!

I am SO in if this supports split backspace, split Rshift, split spacebars and stepped caps.
And definitely BLE5 !

Hey, thank you for reaching.
We are appreciate your advice, but the PCB is almost done, so far it's not support the layout as you mentioned.
We will consider to upgrade the PCB in future, but all depends on if the community like it or not.
