[IC] Campsite: A Van-Compatible Gasketed Case
« on: Tue, 14 July 2020, 15:35:03 »
Hey friends!
I've been working on a new project I'd like to share. Introducing the Campsite!

"Park your Van in a Campsite!"


247254-0
247242-1
247240-2
247258-3
247244-4
247246-5

Features:
  • Compatibility with the Minivan, ChopShop, Kumo, and Van44 PCBs.
  • Sandwich-style gasketed case with a sandblasted brass weight and 50A nitrile gaskets.
  • 4 degree typing angle.
  • Case alone should be approximately 2.8lbs, or 3 built OG Minivans.
  • Choice of a polycarbonate half-plate for flex or a sandblasted brass full plate for firmness.
  • Currently available colors: E-White, Blue Steel, Bushido Red and Space Grey. (Don't see one you want? Sound off in the IC form below.)
  • Price: TBD.
  • PCBs may be made available at time of sale.
  • Expected launch in Fall 2020, after Cajal ships.

Please fill out the IC form to show your support and ask for changes: https://forms.gle/FEJpavFodY9toNxr8

Yep. I'm down. It would be cool if there could be a fun color like MHKB Fabulous Teal or something. Also wouldn't say no to a PC one. While I'm asking for stuff, how about R2 Esc. and R1 Delete as RAMA or similar quality metal artisans, like the titanium ones Evan sold a couple months back.

yeah space grey is getting a frosty reception right now, which is a shame because it's the most versatile (imo). sound off in the IC form with what colors you wanna see and i'll be monitoring the situation closely on whether it'll get replaced.

unfortunately that isn't up to me, that would be up to TKC at this point, though I've reached out to JSON and we'll see  ;)

lol u made me feel so old, that only about 3 years ago! i remember that, but at ~2.8lbs unbuilt, i think one-handed shots in crowds should be harder and i recommend setting your Campsite down before photo ops.

I think I'm interested if a PCB is made available with it.

Edit: Ignore my first IC submission. I mentioned Hammerhead but I've checked and I can't get the keys for this layout

The backspace isn't an issue if you don't absolutely need to join GB's for endless set reruns with decreasing compatibility or color picker of the month celebration.

I'm definitely in and I would like to see the option to add a PCB to the case too.

I hope you will consider black as an additional colour.
It's neutral and I think it will go well together with the simple and elegant look of the case.

Filled in the form.

Aw, was hoping for a 50% after Cajal. In any case GL with IC, looking great for the minivanners.

Edit:
That engraving on the back is sick btw.

If I add a color, a purple like Drank is definitely what I'm leaning towards....

this buy includes no PCB, but there are multiple revisions of the TheVan PCBs that it should be compatible with. As far as I know, all of them support QMK, some VIA, and span some miniUSB and some USB-C  ports. I am in talks with TKC about offering PCBs at the time of sale to make things more convenient for people who don't already own a PCB for it.

Looks good! Very interested in this. My MiniVan came without a plate, and the wobble is horrible because of the hotswap sockets. This case would be an awesome upgrade!

Also, I put my GMK Camping on it, so I definitely can't skip a case called "Campsite"

thanks for the support! bad news tho, GMK Camping never had a 40% kit.... So that might be tough or you'll have to resort to incorrect legends to make it work. either way, thx!

Would be 100% in if it came with a PCB! Been trying to look for the PCBs you mentioned in the original post but can't seem to find any info on them. Even if TKC offered the PCB separately through their own site I would be in too.
