Any ballpark ranges on price?

There is a compact feel to this compared to other Alice style layouts.
I am more than interested in this.
Feel the same.

Very Interested,  :D.

Just wondering would we be able to switch the position of the right shift and FN? Think that bottom row maybe become arrows key and the FN key can be up key. Just curious if that even possible.

A fitted wooden wrist rest would be amazing!

When and where can you buy this at? Call me enthusiastic! I guess I thought it was out of the IC phase after reading everything.
In the post:
Availability: In stock. ETA is Q4 2020 / Q1 2021

The layout is pretty much set. Since this won't be a group buy, the ultimate goal with this IC is to attempt to get an idea of how many kits to have made. I've created a very simple form that I invite anyone that is truely interested in this keyboard to fill out.

that link has also been added to the top of the thread.

I see that this is going to be an in-stock item, which raises a few questions. How much supply are you looking at for a single drop, or is there a different system for making it available? I assume that the sale will be FCFS style, which means it would be less accessible for some folks, so I am concerned. Anyways, I like the clean aesthetic of the board, plus it is a ergo board, so regardless of the sales method I am interested.

I noticed the screws on the inner weight are Philips head, is that only for the prototype? I'd vastly prefer something that is less likely to strip like hex or Torx.

Oops. Forgot to remove the google forms link after I closed it. I felt it had a sufficient number of responses. I'll open it back up if/when it's time for the next round.

why the stepped look on the bottom case? if they were used for aligning the top and bottom case, wouldn't pillars be easier/cheaper to machine?

While  it is true that making it pillars would be easier and thus cheaper to machine, but then it would beat the main idea/philosophy of this keyboard, which is angled ergo layout keyboard, no?

Word is about 200 in the 1st batch. Not sure 'bout price, though. 300ish, I think, maybe on a larger side (350+)

Approximately 200 for the first round and around 500 for the second. Pricing hasn't been finalized but expect $350-375.

Tentative ETA for the first batch is January. Second batch is maybe March/April.
