Hello, this is JKDLAB®.

3-key-Binary_Monkey provides 3 different modes of input which are;
1. Binary input
2. Expanded ASCII code binary input
3. Key macro input which can be customized through QMK as well as your own tool
Including Monkey_Brown (our signature colour), there are 4 total options possible which are; 1) Monkey_Brown, 2) Retro_Gray, 3) Black and Orange, and 4) Black.
As an additional option, you may order Keycaps for XDA Profile and Brass weight backplate which PVD mirror finishing has been applied.

Pre-order is going to be opened for a month, starting on 22nd January to 22nd February.

Interesting!
Not sure if it'll hit 500 MOQ though, it seems too niche... GLWIC

Yes, It runs with micro 5Pins. Because it's really compact and tiny. there is not enough space for USB C ;( (if i have just 1~2mm in my board, i will put it inside)
My next Products will be include USB C

Usb micro and no QMK is a pass for me.
Design is super cute though. I love the "budget RAMA" look.

Maybe I missed it, is there a physical prototype that has been made?

I also wasn't able to find a link to the "official store". Kind of weird since the GB starts tomorrow...

I'm sorry to have kept you waiting.
The Pre-Order website will open at 13:00 GMT.

Considering the fact that this quantity is not much, we are producing color chips first to match the color we want rather than the initial quantity production with a high amount.


BrassWeight Plate : PVD + Mirror finishing

Anodizing Color chips
For JKD ORANGE color, it will be changed to powder coat version.

As soon as the pre-order is properly prepared, we will contact SMT and the processing plant to order the initial quantity.


The version you see in the picture is the micro 5pin version.

Due to a different modification than we expected in the beginning when it was changed to C type, the prototype that we already had was not available.

The work seems to be delayed, but we are working on it with the goal of delivery in March.

Thank you for your interest in binary_monkey.

For those who participated in the internest check, which is scheduled to end soon, we are preparing a small but secret gift that we can prepare.

Please participate in Interest Check before Pre-Order starts!
