Can the left shift be split to allow UK ISO 1.25 SHift and 1 |\   ?
I started typing on a Sinclair ZX Spectrum 'human flesh' keyboard in 1980 and I never stopped.

He has said previously that ISO would probably be included

Not.probably. It's being done

I need this in a blue board, yellow accent colorway for obvious reasons!
Or I will do it myself!

That is good, if possible please amend the layout diagram to show this detail.

I'll be updating that when I get the chance, missed it in the diagram. Thanks.

Small update on the blackout version of BOX. The renderings have been uploaded in the render album. It will feature an anodized black aluminum body paired with polished black PVD stainless steel accents.

I suppose you will provide plate files after the GB is done ?

This board looks amazing in white w/ black accents, I can't wait to pick one up. Though my one suggestion would be to add a Canadian vendor to the vendor list (if at all possible), it's so insanely expensive to ship from the states.

This is gorgeous, very striking. ISO in the pcb means I'm in - consider this another vote for a matching plate

I don't think how many people realize or fully appreciate how much work went into this IC. The rendering, the product positioning, the message, the design thoughts, and everything. While this isn't my style for boards, but man, respect.

A few ICs give me this feeling of completeness, and they're this one, GMK Maestro, and GMK Stealth.

This is hands down (for me) that absolute best convergence of looks and practicality i have ever seen in a key board layout. (I still think HHKB look the best, but it's just not practical for me)

This is incredible. Really curious how you manufactured the accent piece going over everything?

Thanks! The accent pieces is not one piece, but actually multiple pieces screwed into the case in a particular order to create the structural frame. This kit-of-parts diagram we posted on Instagram illustrates the separate pieces if you want to see more.

No, the colors are most likely final.
