Interested. Also interested in Alps version.
Model M Industrial, SSK, Unicomp 104, Code TKL MX Green, FC660M MX Green + Clear + White + Grey, FC660C Topre 45g, MagicForce 68 USB and Bluetooth, Whitefox, some optical switch 65% Bluetooth split spacebar thing ... wait, I think I need an intervention. Too late, thereís a couple of new Model Fs on the way.
Too much SA is never enough.

First of all, I really admire you. The project is very interesting and worth watching. The idea of ​​making a curved keyboard is not new, but no one has solved it yet. (in custom keyboard) I have also thought about it, the plan is to separate each Round into each pcb and plate. But doing so will make the center of the plate very sag when typing if doing the top mount. PCB mount can be partially solved but inside the case it will be relatively difficult to cnc.

I'm having a nightmare thinking about the PCB production, but this is serious dedication to the ibm design

Just came across this on the key dot co and I'm really excited for the group buy whenever that opens up.

Would the solenoid be able to be turned on and off?
Either through a key command or function in QMK or some kind of switch on the bottom or back of the case?

Not the runner, but the answer to that is almost certainly yes.

There definitely would be a toggle keymap for it. Just like the Beamspring controller has it. There's also folks who have put solenoids inside their regular MX custom cases.

I wonder whether a curved PCB is going to be a problem.  Would the flex stress make it more likely to crack over time?  Could the stretch/compression of the traces be a problem long-term?

Came to see if there were any updates, but I would like to add my vote to the beige request. I'd like to just go all-in for the retro look if I got one.

Intriguing. However, as I would use this in a Windows/Mac/Linux environment, a WKL only kills it for me.

It's QMK compatible, just reprogram to literally anything else lol.

Thatís not preferable for quite a few people - Iíve got an SSK and a couple of full size Model Ms and I gravitate toward the M with three keys to the left of Space as thatís where my muscle memory assumes my fingers will find ctrl/alt/win/apple/whatever.
The OP gets to make the decisions about what they want to build - itís their project - but having a crack at others for making an observation on what layout theyíd prefer isnít particularly helpful. Iím another who thinks this is a cool project, but wonít buy it if itís only available win key less.
LOL.

Got my prototype PCB today ;D

Based on the Prototype PCB, It looks like you can have three modifiers next to the spacebar, so a winkey should fit in the 1U space between CTRL and ALT. Assuming this ever gets made...

Man, i get all excited reading the OP, especially the "Solenoid" part, then skip to the end of the thread to find it's probably dead in the water. Bummer.

I think it would be safe to simply assume that this is DBA until whenever we do get an update guys. And that's if ever.
