[IC] KAT Slurp | NEW DESKMAT & COLLABS ADDED
« on: Thu, 13 August 2020, 11:13:50 »


Good news everyone! Today we will be delivering to the keycap set KAT Slurp to the mechanical keyboard enthusiast community of Planet Earth.

This set is inspired from Futurama, and the best-selling drink of the universe: Slurm. This highly addictive set represents the luminescent soda encased in a dark blue can with the brand name ďSlurmĒ written in bright pink. I hope you enjoy this set as much as I enjoyed creating it.

**** YEAH this is what i'm ****ING TALKING ABOUT!

A keycap set that is creative, pushes the envelope....the kind of keycap set that someone see's a picture of online and that's what makes them get into the hobby. I wish this was in SA profile but I will 1000% be first in line to get this bad boy. Alien alphas + novelties WAAAAT?

The novelties are not really my style. However, I'd definitely be in for the alienese alphas, some 40s mods and those pink spacebars.

The fact that so many people love this speaks to the diversity of taste in this community, and that's a good thing. I'm not into it but I applaud you for doing something that goes in a new direction, ie, not a rehash of everything else that's out there. I also have to admit, the dual color legends are... legendary. I'm sure this will become a new trend. Good job.

Move along now. This is perfect. A lot of us like it like this.

I have a suggestion for the Alienese alphas. I love them, but maybe also swap out the punctuation characters for something else? They look a bit out of place to me like this and I would prefer a full alien symbol look.

One more thing, I love the nuke novelty, but not much else there catches my fancy. Maybe we can see a few more into that direction?

Seems like a lot of people are interested in an alt blue mod kit. I will put something together and if there is enough interest after people have seen it, I will add it!

First off, let me say thank you to everyone that has filled out the IC form. I did not expect this many responses after one day, I really appreciate all of the suggestions and especially all of the positive feedback on the set!

There has been a lot of requests for sublegends via the IC form. I want to keep the set fun and playful (and within the theme) so here's what I came up with for subs:



Is this something you guys would be interested in as another alpha kit? And if so, do you prefer the pink subs or the neon subs?

Yes, absolutely. Neon subs, please. This looks great.

It even gives us an option for alphas with non-centered legends (kind of), which is almost nonexistent in KAT sets right now. The only other one I can think of that's doing them is KAT Refined.

Thanks everyone, looks like this is going to go ahead and get added to the list of alphas (3 total kits). I will come back with the full kit and a render on a board. Can't wait for you guys to see it! As mentioned earlier I am exploring the blue mods as well. I will post an update with all of this as soon as I can get it out.

Are they sub legends swapped in purpose?
Like for example 9 and ( are swapped.
I would prefer it in regular/normal order.

Unfortunately I would not consider getting rid of the pink legends and I am now up to 3 alpha kits. As seen above there will be pink legends with neon sublegends, hopefully that would appeal to you!

Re: [IC] KAT Slurp - UPDATED SUBLEGENDS KIT OUT NOW!
« Reply #40 on: Mon, 17 August 2020, 19:44:15 »
First major update, here's what was changed/added:
  • By popular demand, latin/alienese sublegend alphas are now here
  • Kitting - Mods/40s/Ergo kitting was changed to more accurately reflect what you would need, UK/ISO support in base, spacebars swapped around a little bit, and fixed a few errors in kitting
  • A couple basic renders added to show what the sublegends would look like

To do: keep getting feedback (please fill out the IC form if you haven't it really helps me!), release the second deskmat as soon as it's done, and more renders.

In other news...I am working on finishing a custom 1 of 1 Slurp coiled cable that will be raffled off. Additionally, samples have been requested from Keyreative and things are moving there.

Thank you everyone for continuing to support this project.

This is odd for me, as I love alternative legends, but for this kit, I just keep thinking I want Latin alphas. So I'll get the Colevrak kit.

For ortho, can you please add accented ESC? And ideally also make the 1.5u the pink accent? Mito tends to do this with the ortho kits and IMO it ends up looking really good.

This was simply a design choice made by me. I thought with the dual color legends it looks better with pink numbers on top and neon punctuation on bottom.

This is odd for me, as I love alternative legends, but for this kit, I just keep thinking I want Latin alphas. So I'll get the Colevrak kit.

For ortho, can you please add accented ESC? And ideally also make the 1.5u the pink accent? Mito tends to do this with the ortho kits and IMO it ends up looking really good.

Ortho kit updated for accented ESC, two 1.5u pink accents, and alpha colored spacebars. Does this look better? Thanks for the suggestion there.

Update: Fixed a few more minor kitting issues, getting closer to finalizing kitting. Keep suggesting any changes if you see things that need to be fixed, added or removed. I know I need to get the Ergo Blanks kit smaller, that is a work in progress.

Thank you all for filling out the IC form and entering the cable giveaway, there have been so many people that have entered I promise this isn't the only giveaway I will be doing so stay tuned!

So based on the IC form a loooooot of people were asking for a blue mods kit. I haven't put together the kitting for it but I did do a render on the Haus with blue mods. What do you guys think of the blue mods?



Additionally, there have been a lot of suggestions to add more novelties which I would love to do but I want to make sure the novelties kit isn't too big where it becomes a $40 kit add-on (note I do not have any pricing info yet this is just an estimate based on other KAT sets), so I will ask you guys: would you prefer to add more novelties to the kit and sacrifice price or keep the kit the way it is?

Lastly, here's a render on a TKL with some neon acrylic for fun! (keyboard is the TEK 80)



Thank each and every one of you for your support through this project and all of your feedback, ideas, criticism, and compliments. Second deskmat coming soon  ;)

Opening a can of Slurp and having a closer look at the kits, I noticed a few things:

* Text + Icon Mods: spelling error, seemingly carried over from Cyberspace: R2 'Fuction'

* Novelties: are those really R2? (if yes, please educate me how you would use them ;))

* North: I looked at the kit checking for ISO-DE compatibility, which looks fine, but I noticed the main symbols (pink)  and shifted symbols (yellow) are  not consistent, in the sense that for some keys they are swapped out. Having looked only at the ISO-DE case, I think the marked keys should have the symbols swapped:


I really love the downshifted symbols' concept :thumb: Regarding blue modifiers, I like them and they make a lot of sense in the context of the KAT MOQ system, so a good idea to have them.

Just want to have this on my desk already... <3

Thanks for all of this, I'm going to get back to kitting this weekend and make sure everything you noted here is fixed. I really appreciate that! And trust me I can't wait until I can announce a GB date! Currently in talks with some vendors and trying to get those locked in. I will provide an update on that hopefully next week sometime when things are more set!

Hi everyone I wanted to provide a quick update with how things are going:

  • ONE WEEK left to enter the cable giveaway! Again, the winner will be announced in this thread and in the Ulliam + Fam discord on Monday, September 7th. Still lots of time to enter, simply fill out the IC form and add your discord tag!
  • I have been in contact with vendors and so far have OCE, EU, and Asia locked in. Working on a new exciting US vendor, waiting for some more information on that.
  • Possible cable collaboration in talks!
  • Keyreative is working on making the samples as we speak and I will show those as soon I get my hands on them!
  • Finalizing kitting based on feedback, correcting small errors, etc.
  • Second deskmat coming soonTM

Again I want to reiterate my gratitude to everyone that has been so supportive of this set, full steam ahead.

set looks great, but a few notes on the ergo set.

1. in R3 you are including a pipe key that is also in the alphas kit, this doesn't need to be there.
2. there is no R2 enter.  it is pretty common in these kits. I know some people use it there, but i'm more looking for it to do one bottom row as r2 and one as r1 to get the duplicate legends i'd need for my keymap

also, i'd love to see an R2 escape and an R1 delete, but i know those aren't too common.

HUGE Update! We have an official group buy date and vendors. From the bottom of my heart thank you to every single person that has been interested in the set, provided feedback, messaged me, joined the discord, chatted in the discord, or even looked at this thread.

I will be doing another giveaway in celebration. I think I am going to get some stickers made and another cable giveaway but this time I think I may do a couple cables as there were many entries last time and I want a couple more winners. Stayed tuned in discord for the updates, but the giveaway will be posted all around!

You might want to swap the arrows on the Tab keys around. The conventional icon for Tab is rather than (the top arrow is left-facing).

The number row legends on the alphas also appear to be the wrong way around. Was this intentional, perhaps?

I will fix that issue on the Tab Keys. But yes the number row legends were a design decision.

Thank you! I'll look into that and add it to my list. I have been really busy with my job and haven't been able to get back into kitting in the past month or so. Rest assured I am creating deadlines for myself for kitting so that we are set to go well before GB happens!

The Blue mods wouldn't raise the price on the kit too much. I think adding another color would make the price go up, which not too many people are keen on.

The case used in that render is the candybar you're correct. I tried to get the Pink aluminium version (I believe called the Hubba Bubba colorway?) matched in the render but going off my monitor the color could be off. Hope this helps!

Alienese are the most fantastic alphas I've ever seen!


I'd like:

10 alienese symbols per row. R1 is at 8/10. R2 is at 9 without using homing keys, 11 with homing keys.

R2 1.5u keys for Iris/Corne support. Pink R2 1.5u is not in any kit.

R2 1u blanks in each colorway.

An ortho novelties kit. R1-R4, primarily 1u. It could include 4 R2 1.5u blanks (2 pink, 2 blue) and the keys from the novelties that are 1.5u and lower, shift R4 and R5 novelties down to R1 and R2.


Filling a split_3x6_3 (corne) with alienese alphas, novelties for outer columns, and R2 blanks (2x 1.5u, 4x 1u) for the thumb cluster.

Renders show novelties in positions that make the keyboard look good. The keycap profile generally doesn't fit the row in the keyboard renders. The faces show up in R1 in keyboard renders and R3 in kit render.

Seriously though, I'm loving the set. Can't wait for GB.

But then again, the artisan aspect of this hobby was never my cup of tea.

Yeah, i don't like most of them, they're usually just weird and "cute" or  boring and lame, lame. (ProjectKey's "space skull" being one of the better exceptions.. I want to get one of those pretty bad)

Do you have a date for GB? Post says January but I was just wanting to know when I need to move money over to buy.

I thought it was a fun cute collab and the artist is an awesome person :) I agree, not for everyone but this is the sculpt she is known for. The THOK collab will be Slurp themed for sure, I cannot wait to show you once we get some renders soon (hopefully within the next week)

Waiting to hear back from Keyreative for quotes at the moment. I know it's last moment but I am doing everything I can to get these quotes ASAP. Looking like a mid Jan - mid Feb GB date if I can get these quotes within the next few days.

I'm hoping it isn't too soon. As much as I love this set, I'm in 6 different KAT GBs already,none of which have deliverered anything even though some are as much as a year overdue. I won't join any more until I see at least one come thorough, keyreative is starting to feel like a bubble about to burst.

I think that maybe you should have stopped before you got to 6 KAT sets preordered with none in hand. Either way if Q1 2021 is too soon, it looks like your probably sitting this one out.

I'm kinda in the same boat. I have 2 KAT GB's I joined pending. For this reason there's several KAT GB's I skipped. Still, I honestly don't expect GMK to have any better timelines.

The difference is that I have KAT Milkshake on my hands and am very happy with it. Slurp is just something I don't want to miss out on.

KAT profile is manufactured by Keyreative (material is PBT).

We have quotes in hand! Working with vendors to determine pricing and set a GB date in middle of Jan. I will update IC shortly when this is determined.

I'm salivating. First Keycap set to buy and it's taking forever for GB to get here. I can't wait though!  :thumb:

Some more news...we are still moving along. Looks like GB date will be early February (Feb. 8th likely). Also great news we now have a UK vendor - Protozoa Studio!
