Been waiting for this  ;D  Will there be color options for the weight?  I see black and grey with the protos.

It's been nice following along the developments of this, and great to see the IC materialize - it looks great, and I'm definitely in for it. Do we have an idea of when it may go to GB by any chance?

Nice! Would you consider adding underglow LEDs to the PCB for the PC version?

No PC version this time around; the thin supports for the internal screws would shatter.

It's been nice following along the developments of this, and great to see the IC materialize - it looks great, and I'm definitely in for it. Do we have an idea of when it may go to GB by any chance?

Timeline TBA. Currently still sorting out the last of the details.

Been waiting for this  ;D  Will there be color options for the weight?  I see black and grey with the protos.

Still deciding on this last factor, but currently both Kevinplus and I are leaning towards all black.
Maybe silver weight for black case, but the proto wasn't too spectacular in terms of durability so there'd need to be another finishing method.

Btw, why don't you include a brass plate option like the Polaris? Cut down on number of sku?

Awesome. I am looking into a 65% build for in the future, so this looks like an option.

Apologize for harping on this but do you have an total cost estimate (including shipping?) I understand this will be more than polaris simply because more material. But an estimate would be great.

Beautiful design.  In my haste looking on IG, I thought there was an F key row.  I dont need another 65% board, but I really like the designs.  Keep it up!

I will jump on this since I absolutely love my Polaris, but the hotswap (default) layout looks weird to me? There's a Tsangan bottom row, but then no split backspace..

Really like the looks of this. If you're not completely locked into the hotswap pcb being the default, I would personally prefer the soldering to be the default or better yet, just be given a choice between the two. Prefer not to pay for a hotswap pcb I don't need.

I guess I kinda get the decision of having a seperate add on kit for non-hs, as it almost doubles as another pcb+plate, but it still feels rather unfortunately gimmicky especially when you offer that sick split spacebar layout.

Would it be possible to only get a pcb and a plate made later on (since you're pretty good about doing making open source consistently, which ty btw)

Definitely excited for this. It will most likely sell a lot since the Polaris did so well and this is basically an improved Polaris with a 65% layout.
