The second image, the sceond and forth from the last image are one of our actaul prototypes with final Hub and Front LED indicator design.

Plate option is something we are still working on and would love get feedback from you guys.

Get rid of the side mounting points, it feels terrible and really ruins a board. You rendered a thick plate, but please consider a 1.5mm plate alongside the non-hotswap PCB.

  • All new modules will be available for grid600 as well.
Does that mean that mean that grid 600 is getting another run soon? Or does that mean that the modules will be interchangeable between grid 600 and grid 650? 

Will plate and/or PCB be open-sourced?  Very interested in doing a small/private run of Boardwalk PCBs for this if so.
Would love to do that.

Then put me down for two!


I want in on this so bad. But would that mean a 65% Boardwalk? Or is 600 happening at the same time? Would that mean a BLE Boardwalk? Would the USB hub still work? I am salivating over here.


This checks pretty much every box for me that are just not available in most customs: Hotswap, BLE, USB Hub. If a Boardwalk version of this were available it would be actually be a dream board. If there were some way to get RGB underglow going (even just a small diffuser) somewhere would make it perfect. 

I hope the Flash module will be available in a few different colors.

The amount of thought and attention to detail that has gone into this board is truly stunning. I love seeing this hobby move forward inch by inch but frankly, this is pretty revolutionary.

Likely can't cop due to getting in on the recent S75 drop but GL with GB - If I somehow have extra coin lying around, I'll be sure to try and snag!

major updates on Module designs for grid 65
« Reply #69 on: Fri, 13 November 2020, 11:13:37 »
Hi there, gird is here.

After hearing some feedback and some talk with you guys. We decided to do a limited run of WKL version of the keyboard.
We spent some time to implement WKL layout support in the non-hotswap board.


So the layout now is a little different. See here.


GB will be held at zFrontier this decemeber.
Expected fulfill date: MAY 2021.
Still working on the colorway, and suggestions are more than welcomed.

All existing 5 module designs will come in the 650's version. We will be producing 5 new modules for grid 650, and 4 of them will be available for grid 600.





Module Type-01 CLASSIC
IBM Model-F inspired flat top with a pen holder.






Module Type-01S CLASSIC-S
Upgrade the pen holder into a hand-polished, high shine, stainless steel.






Module Type-02 NEON
Features 3 self-luminous tritium vials, delivers a clean and retro look in the dark.






Module Type-03 PEAKS
Facet design inspired by the form of mountains.






Module Type-04 FLASH
Flat top with addressable RGB lighting. With two buttons to adjusting light effects and colors.






Module Type-05 PRESS
Four extra keys at a higher platform, virtually create an "R5" height and feeling.







Module Type-06 WAVE
Organic shape inspired by ocean waves.





Module Type-07 ARRAY
A module utilizes vintage LED displays to indicates time, personal texts, or computer hardware info (PC only).





Module Type-08H LINEAR-H
Module Type-08V LINEAR-V
Two modules share the same simple aesthetic.





Module Type-09 STAND
A phone stand module. Compatible with devices within 95mm or 3.74 inches wide and have a thickness between 6.5mm to 12.5mm. It is made of aluminum like most other modules. Its surface contacting with phones will be covered with artificial leather like Alcantara or Thorp.






Module Type-10 CIRCLE
A module comes with a knob and a switch to select functions. For example, you can switch from volume adjustment or webpage scrolling. The knob also has a sophisticated design to provide a satisfying feel, commonly seen in the high-end audio system.

Let us know what's your favorite module, and we'd love to hear your feedback.

Any possibility of some of the older modules returning for the Grid600? I missed out on the Neon module the first time around, and they aren't exactly common, so buying it on /r/mechmarket isn't really an option.

Also, which of the new modules will be made for the 600?

I wish i could have FLASH and Circle on the same mod..

I think it would be cool to divide the mod section into 2 mod sections.
1 smaller, taking up a 1/3 to the left, where you could have smaller versions of the Circle, Stand, Array, Press, and Neon.
And the 2nd, taking up the rest of the original mod section 2/3, where the options could be the Classic, Classic S, Peaks, Flash, Waves, and Linear.

Maybe you could take that idea and run with it on a TKL version next time, I guess.

Thank you Thank you !!

Iím most interested for the Array. Iíll also be getting neon for my grid600.
And likely the linear. The grid design is very retro and the dolch like Linear -V is very appealing.


Can the array be programmed ? If so how ?
More than time or texts, Iím more interested in hacking together notifications or some kind.

Ooh, very nice! I like Peaks and Array best, I think, maybe Linear (it's hard to choose!). I think a lot of people would be into Stand, I see people wanting a place for pens/phones/etc on their keyboards fairly regularly.

Excitement grows for this 2nd run.  I sadly missed out on the 1st time round, but I hope not to this time.  I will take all the modules as well please, they all look cool.  I also love the new development on the design and engineering.  Keep up the good work.

Agreed, being able to program the screen to do things based on knob input would be amazing.

Other than the screen and knob modules, I like Peaks.

From the new modules, I would have to say I like Type-07 ARRAY the most. Do you have any prototypes of the display itself? It looks like a 16-segment display design with a retro nixie tube feel in the renders and just wondering how you were planning on achieving that effect. Great work!

Nixie tube made me think of vacuum tubes.... vacuum tubes made me think of amps.... MAKE A VACUUM TUBE HEADPHONE AMP MODULE!!!! Vacuum tubes sticking out of keyboard would look dope.

It is kind of crazy, given that the mech and audio communities seem to share many of the same constituents that no one has yet come up with a keyboard with an amp/DAC in it.... (if only i had the motivation..)
