Q&A
How to buy?

I will post a link to a Google form when the time comes on the Bear GB thread and on my Discord channel.

What time zone are you going to use?

EDT (Eastern Daylight Time)

Can I choose different colors for top and bottom of my case?

Yes but only for aluminum case .

Will you limit this board one per person?

No.

What payment options do you accept?

PayPal only. Invoice should be paid within 48 hours of receiving it. If the invoice is not paid by then, it will be canceled and your spot will go to the next person on the waiting list.

Can I change the details of my order later?

I will release the form before GB opens. Please make sure to study it and decide on all options. We will accept only one change after you submit your form so please make sure you choose wisely the first time.

If you need more info, please let me know


Updatd :10/7 2020.








For baby blue / pink color, we will try a brand new way of coating: skin-like coating (a.k.a. "new coating" that I mentioned in previous communication), which is different than regular coating (powder or cerakote). The finish of this "new coating" will be matte instead of glossy, and it will be really smooth (like skin) when you touch it. In addition, via this "new coating", we can achieve better consisitency for the color of top and bottom cases (if you choose the same color for top and bottom).

Disclaimer: The baby blue / pink color in the render is based on anodized aluminum, while the way we did in prototype and we will do in production for these two colors will NOT be traditional anodizing. Therefore, you will not expect to have the exact same baby blue / pink color as the render. If you are not sure about this "new coating" (only for baby blue / pink), you can always choose anodized silver, anodized black, e-white, and polycarbonate, which are awesome choices as well.

Thanks everyone ,later days my friend will send more photos to me ill post on the discord .

I feel like the single key on the right looks a little out of place. Have you considered doing a mirror of the left key cluster?

I like this idea, but also something like a rotary encoder would look great there as another option.

Either way, not that bad of a design

Maybe consider adding several tiny holes on the left (or right) to indicate the layor (or capslock).

Why not? Edit: I'll answer myself - because the Enter and Backslash keys don't align verically.
