looks soo good. if only there was ISO support :(
any chance for that to get added?

Not for the group buy. Switch plate is fixed, PCB is hot-swap.

Does this mean theres a possibility we could get the option to buy these seperately in the future?

Will you color match this to Nautilus Nightmares?

Lovely design and keyboard, but the fixed layout (WKL) forces me to pass. A bit sad but I am sure it will sell great either way! :D

I would greatly prefer solderable, that might be a pass for me. But that thickkk pc + gasget is a very interesting combo + I am a bit of a sucker for 1800.
Personally I prefer split numpad enter b/c I'm a lefty gamer, other layout choices match my personal tastes but a solderable board would've made a lot more people happy I think.

Any chance of a nice kb case for this format?

Wow I've been waiting for a standard compact 1800 layout forever!! Super glad it's unlimited, and although I would prefer a solderable pcb, it isn't a dealbreaker. Is this the previously named Andromeda keyboard?

No. That would require some heavy changes and a different PCB.
I thought so, sorry, but I had to ask.

Iím still interested, good luck with the GB. From the comments it looks like you spotted a gap in the market, everybodyís collection needs a great full-size.

I love your work, man, but without an option for wk layout this goes from my endgame to won't buy. You say you want it to be great for productivity; well, that particular key + ctrl + alt is so important to a lot of us. I know you're undoubtedly all the way at the end of prototypes and design, but if there's even the slightest chance for a re-design on pcb + plate, you'd make a fan very happy. If not, I'll just be sad about the almost that sar represents for me.

Much respect to Zambu going unlimited! Unlike others out there that.......

Don't be a ****.

This is because the plan is to work with multiple vendors and distribute the load of the orders. Please, be understandable when vendors limit the orders.

The solution to your woes is Ctrl goes to where caps lock is. Bottom is Alt -> Win -> Space. This goes for any keyboard

I like having Ctrl where Caps is for games. It a lot easier to reach than my pinky having to stretch.

Beautiful case design. Hotswap totally cool but shouldn't be the only option. It wouldn't be a dealbreaker normally but that numpad layout is really upsetting. GLWGB.

Really respect the unlimited gb, I assume more units will mean a lower price but with the features this has I bet it'll still be a buck or two. Is the plate two parts? I noticed screws on the top side of the plate and was wondering if it was a two part plate? Or is it just a single thick plate with cut outs where the switch latches would be one a 1.5mm plate. Finally, I'm wondering if the led indicators will be addressable? I'd like to program one of them to flash at every keypress.
