Absolutely stunning design, ever since the teaser from Instagram was posted I was stoked to see this board. Love everything about the blocked corners hhkb style version, but unfortunately it's out of my budget, but good luck with GB!
Current daily driver: Atreus62 w/ vintage blacks and Zealios with QMX clips. Acrylic is bae.

Oh my god! I missed this post!!! You’re back with a 60% ! Finaly!!!! I am 5000000% in! I want one so badly.
I was off geekhack for a while due to my work, but I’m back and I need this. It will be the perfect case for my zeal60 pcb :D!

I LOVE the rounded corners, rose gold color, sunken-in design, and RGB Diffuser! Not sure about the middle piece, hanging RGB cutout(feels like too much with the diffuser) and nametag, but can live with them. And I can choose matching color for mid piece, so not a problem. Seems like I want a 60% Pearl, basically. But anyway, I just hope this gets to the GB stage, fingers crossed!

Got to play with this thing Saturday at a mini meet. Solid as hell, and a LOT heavier than it looks! Can't wait to hopefully scoop one up.

It's nice design summarizing many good features, despite of the similarity to viper/tina, E6-V2, etc.

Not a fan of cable routing, IMO it will be a more clean design without it but I could live with it.

Since the CAPSLOCK indicator holes are on top right rather than top left, for a universal 60 PCB I guess the wire inside the case needs to cross a longer distance? No sure how it works out for the sample. It seems the best option is to offer the PCB with pins designed on top right position to fit the indicator holes. It would help for the under-glow, two side lighting as well to offer a PCB with the kit, and it's still compatible with other 60 PCBs. And I think I need three of these holes instead of two. It looks better for three holes, like Pearl, if they are small.

Please offer blank aluminum nametag with colors to match the top part if nametag is a must.

I realize you're making revisions to your board, but the first time I saw it (without even seeing who had designed it...) my first thought was "oh, this is a new Exclusive board" and then when I saw the bottom, I thought "or maybe its an LZ board??". The similarities are so close that it can (and does) cause confusion.

The Pearl is too nice of a board (and your delivery was too high quality) to be this similar to other designer's aesthetic. Keep working on it.

With all of these great keycap sets coming, it'll be tough to pick a color for Pandora.. certainly count me in!

I asked him about this project on Reddit about a month ago, this was his reply:

"My friend! Ty for asking haha. I've made some fixes and changes to the original design on my cad program, and I'd like to get a last prototype made before being convinced that its a board id like to sell. But the boards are the best 60s ive ever used and because of that i kind of settled into using them instead of trying to push them out. Plus work, good friends, gf, pc and mobile gaming take up most of my time. Just need a good break to hit up my manufacturers, dump some cash and get the ball rolling for good! Cheers buddy, if you ever need anything let me know!"

Just consider it to be as good as dead for now. I think this project has already been abandoned.

@Koob you're supposed to start a gb and take all the money before going mia for months. Going mia during IC is new meta.

This is really something....

I'd want to create a more custom HHKB based on Hako Royal Clear switches, and am guessing I could pop a Zeal60 in one of these and achieve that?

Do we know if it is mothballed or just delayed?
