[IC] GMK Bentō round 2
« on: Sat, 09 May 2020, 07:57:43 »


GMK Bentō round 2

You guys asked for it, now it's back!
GMK Bentō (inspired by the Japanese culture, and the iconic/typical home-packed meal called 'Bento [弁当]') returns!
It will feature some spicy additions: new base kits, latin alphas, 40s support and more!


Regarding the new base kit, I thought it would be nice to offer a monochrome color scheme using this nice tealish blue.
You now have the possibility to have GMK Bentō in two tones: cream and blue thanks to the different novelties kits, for a more sea effect!

I decided to use different Hiragana [ひらがな] sub legends (used for GMK Serika for example) because I find them more coherent adequate.
The Katakana [カタカナ] sub legends come from GMK Bushidō and offer a more modern look due to their sharp and geometrical shapes.

The Group Buy is running from August 3rd to 31st.
The kits are still open to discussion and can be adjusted.

Proxies:
  • US: Novelkeys
  • Europe: Candykeys
  • Canada: DeskHero
  • Asia: ZFrontier
  • Oceania: DailyClack

Pricing

Sakana kit100$5550€₯389.0$58$78AUD$76CAD
Chopsticks kit250$2825€₯199.0$29$40AUD$38CAD



Base kit covers any layout between 60% and full-size keyboards.
Sakana kit offers ortho, 40%, and 50% support.
I won't consider other language alphas because it doesn't make sense to me to have JIS sub legends on a ISO-DE layout though.
I'm not considering an ergo kit either because neither blanks nor git legends would fit the aesthetic of the set.

With all those excellent novelties, this strikes me as a good colorway for an assembly kit.

Love the kits.
Any chance of making the R3 and R4 1U ISO keys different as opposed to two |\ keys?
Either with R3 ~# and R4 |\ (preferred)
or R3 |\ and R4 <>


Thank you

My kingdom for a R3 Function key (or equivalent novelty).

I am in either way, but not having this key be caplock or control sparks joy. :p

Could you add an extra TAB key in the mod colors to the Latin alphas kit?

Then one of the base kits + Latin alpha kit could cover 2 boards (1 7U bottom row, 1 6.25U bottom row. 1 split BS, 1 normal BS. One with split r shift, one with 2.75z. One with accent enter, one with mod colored enter. Etc).

The extra key really provides a lot of value because it’s the only one missing.

Though KAT is unlikely, pbt bento would also be just fine :)

Dual legends alphas on spherical profile don’t look that good IMO, so that's a no go sorry.

PBT is definitely an interesting option as well. With GMKs year long backlog at this point. And honestly recent rocky road with legend QC.

Is this round going to use the same colors as R1?

The R2 PgDn key in the base kit should be PgUp. Please include R3 PgUp, R4 PgDn as well.

Consider removing the second pair of 1u Ctrl and Alt keys. The second Ctrl isn't needed because no modern ≥60% layouts use 2Χ 1u Ctrl, and the second Alt isn't needed because you don't have 1.5u Super keys. It's okay to include the second pair of 1u Ctrl and Alt keys in the 40s kit.

Please see this post for what the correct kana sublegends for the R1 \| and R3, R4 ISO keys should be. I would also recommend changing the R4 \| in the Latin kit to R4 <> in order to avoid duplicates: quite a few ISO users have been expressing their distaste for the duplicate legends recently.
