IIRC it's expected to come in at under $1000, but I doubt it will be under $500.

Gok said he can't even manufacture them for less than $480

I would expect 600+ pretty easily

Yea I should've expected that for such a complicated design.

Nice board but what's the point in 2.25u shift instead of 2.75u? it creates a huge imbalance on the right side compared to the left

People have said this about a lot of boards lol. This board does indeed look quite special however.

I just wish the LEDs in this were better diffused, I don't know if that's the setting it's on or if the diffuse isn't very good. Right now it looks a bit tacky.

I believe they're supposed to look like the scanning headlight on KITT, which was segmented. I personally love this look because of it.

xavierlh is talking about the Mountain Ergo (https://kbdfans.com/collections/group-buy/products/ic-kbdfans-mountain-ergo-keyboard-kit) which is $420USD and not the Mountain Alice (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=111231.0) which is still in IC and doesn't have a confirmed price.
