[IC] Space80 - Apollo
« on: Sun, 06 December 2020, 14:31:32 »

Our Space80-APOLLO Logo

Hello keyboard friends, it has been several busy months producing and shipping Space65 CyberVoyager as well as producing Think6.5v2. Now that the shipping for Space65 CyberVoyager is completed (some Schrodinger orders still with DHL queue, please email me if you don't receive within 2 weeks), and the Think6.5 V2 production is progressing along very well (still projecting shipping around CNY 2021), it is time for me to start the Interest Check for the second keyboard of the Gray Studio Space series keyboard: Space80:APOLLO, the first 80% TKL layout customized keyboard from Gray Studio.


The inspiration for the Space series come from the mankind’s audacious exploration of the outer world, which has significantly influenced me since childhood. Interestingly, Space65 was actually the latest design I had but was first to hold a group buy, and Space80 was designed earlier than Space65, and now it is finally time to bring it to you. And I think it is a good idea to take the time to finetune the design and bring the best to you.

Space80 project started in 2018 and went through many iterations, Space65 and Space80 share similar the design language – a relatively thicker top piece and thinner side profile. The Space80 design looks a bit different, to create more dynamics. And the top piece features cuts like orbits, and I added a badge to the top of the arrow keys. It serves as a RGB light strip, and it can also become a Capslock indicator. The middle layer again features some cool light effects, following the Space series theme.



Further, given we have successfully implemented a top notch typing feel gasket design for Think6.5 V2, we decided to include a gasket design on the Space80 as well. We will be sending prototypes to streamers for live stream builds and typing tests. And similar to Think6.5V2, the plate for the Space80 will be using FR4 material.


Below are some design images. The board has went through several iterations of prototypes and will be sent to streamers soon.

I am sure at this point there is still some room for improvement. Please kindly let me know your thought if you will be interested in this, and your suggestions for the GB and the design. Thank you. If you would like to chat in Discord, here is the link: https://discord.gg/WhCcbyzn9z

Looks great, may I please suggest allowing compatibility with standard 87 PCB such as the hiney 87 or infinity 87? Also, it would be great if there is an option to have matching color for the top and bottom case. Looking forward to hearing more. :D

Yeah left to middle just feels more accommodating if your keeb is off to the left of your desk, but your coiled cable goes to the right. But the versatility of middle mount usb would kinda work for right or left side racing cables. Put my vote down as left side, but I'd be happy with middle just as well  :thumb:

This is superb, overall. A couple small things: I think the edge along the back of the board -- as well as the sides -- would look much cleaner if you removed the groove that runs around the top case piece. It really muddles the look of the indented, thin center piece. I think I'd also remove the logo on the back.

Indeed, centered or left side will be much more preferable.

I mean the board would be objectively better with an F13 key.

Can I ask why?

Also, not a fan of the graystudio on the back. I feel like any of your other brandings would work better, if not blank. Great looking board though, even with my subjective opinion on that.

Would there be any chance of bluetooth on this board as well? I would really love to indulge my partner with this board. Also, not really a fan of the all around LED strip. Like lube, less is more, the LEDs on space65 were very tasteful, but it seems abit too much here. I agree that the graystudio logo at the back does kinda look out of place too.

Looking forward to more color renders!!

I was on the fence with the "amount going on" with the space65 CV, but have kinda regret skipping the GB. Hopped on the Think 6.5v2 first thing to heal those wounds too haha.

that being said, the Apollo takes that design language and spreads it out a bit more, and I think it works so well as a WKL TKL. This board is beautiful.

definitely in for the WKL.

Please consider commissioning a matching wrist rest in mixed materials like wood and resin and in matching colours.  I would love a matching rest for this keyboard so much and I honestly think it is the one thing that keeps being forgotten about.

I actually like the logo quite alot. It's not meant to spell out Apollo.
I'd rather not have any brand explicitly shown on the surface of my keyboard. It looks tacky.
Which is why you don't see any high end boards with their brand name spelt out on top of the board.
You'll only see mass market keyboards like logitech, corsair with their branding. Does it look nice?
I vote for the present logo. Please no lettering.

Yes, it is meant to spell out Apollo. Lmao. Is that not obvious?

I didn't say branding itself on the surface is tacky. What matters is the presentation.
Exclusive, very small minimal look that it doesn't take away from the clean look.
Space65 doesn't any branding. Think boards do but it doesn't say 'THINK6.5'
I don't know which TGR keyboard you're looking at but Jane doesn't have any branding.
Linworks is the only board that the branding more prominent but even then it's really not because it's engraved so that it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb.
What I meant by explicit branding is, actually having the name of the board displayed. For instance, Vega having the word "VEGA"
Space65 with the word "space65"
It's not obvious that they wanted to "spell out the word" or else they would have spelt out the word Apollo LMAO.
I think they are aware that nobody will think 000()0 looks like apollo.
It's a design choice, and there's no intention to spell out the word.
Clearly people who have no background with brand design shouldn't judge it as deal breaker.
With the above logic, Mcdonalds golden arches is a bad choice because it doesn't spell out "McDonalds"
Tesla's "T" is a bad choice because it doesn't spell "Tesla"

I think we agree that the current logo is good, and partially because "apollo" is only readable upon close inspection. I'm not going to get into a general argument about branding/design, but I do agree that: 1) any branding needs to be tasteful, and 2) the subtle look of the five slightly-modified circles is as far as branding should go on the Apollo. :thumb:

For the sake of accuracy, though, I will point out that your comment on TGR is laughable because nearly ALL TGR keyboards produced have explicit branding on top. Jane V1, Jane V2, Jane V2 CE, and Alice with a bold "TGR" on them (the Alice being literally the most popular keyboard of the past two years lmao). And then the TGR 910 straight up says "910" on top. All of these boards are stunners, even with very explicit branding. But I'll chalk up your comment up to your newness here.  ;D

Ah, ok I couldn't see the branding on TGR because they are engraved.
It actually looks really nice.
I just had a design idea. They could have the RGB visible through 000()0 instead and maybe have tiny strips of RGB beside them.
Something like this:

-- 000()0 --

Of course, the logo would have to be bigger to let the RBG through.....
I don't know if that would look better than the current design, but it would be cool to see RGB through the logo.

Our Space80-APOLLO Logo

Hello keyboard friends, it has been several busy months producing and shipping Space65 CyberVoyager as well as producing Think6.5v2. Now that the shipping for Space65 CyberVoyager is completed (some Schrodinger orders still with DHL queue, please email me if you don't receive within 2 weeks), and the Think6.5 V2 production is progressing along very well (still projecting shipping around CNY 2021), it is time for me to start the Interest Check for the second keyboard of the Gray Studio Space series keyboard: Space80:APOLLO, the first 80% TKL layout customized keyboard from Gray Studio.

Show Image

The inspiration for the Space series come from the mankind’s audacious exploration of the outer world, which has significantly influenced me since childhood. Interestingly, Space65 was actually the latest design I had but was first to hold a group buy, and Space80 was designed earlier than Space65, and now it is finally time to bring it to you. And I think it is a good idea to take the time to finetune the design and bring the best to you.

Space80 project started in 2018 and went through many iterations, Space65 and Space80 share similar the design language – a relatively thicker top piece and thinner side profile. The Space80 design looks a bit different, to create more dynamics. And the top piece features cuts like orbits, and I added a badge to the top of the arrow keys. It serves as a RGB light strip, and it can also become a Capslock indicator. The middle layer again features some cool light effects, following the Space series theme.


Show Image

Further, given we have successfully implemented a top notch typing feel gasket design for Think6.5 V2, we decided to include a gasket design on the Space80 as well. We will be sending prototypes to streamers for live stream builds and typing tests. And similar to Think6.5V2, the plate for the Space80 will be using FR4 material.

Show Image

Below are some design images. The board has went through several iterations of prototypes and will be sent to streamers soon.

I am sure at this point there is still some room for improvement. Please kindly let me know your thought if you will be interested in this, and your suggestions for the GB and the design. Thank you. If you would like to chat in Discord, here is the link: https://discord.gg/WhCcbyzn9z

Also, backlighting would be nice or even perkey RGB.

Excellent design and specs though, prefer a 65% but this has me very interested

just my 2 cents, it looks the one circle with two openings is meant for LL in APOLLO, maybe using two circles with one opening each makes the name more identifiable

Haven't logged in or used this account in years. Once I saw this IC, I had to login just to say that I am 100% interested in this. I was lucky enough to snag a Space65 EVA-01 on eBay not too long ago and am absolutely in love with this thing. Nothing would please me more to have a sister in the Space80. Matter of fact, actually, one of my favorite form factors is the Topre 87U, especially for work. It's what the Space65 replaced while I work remote.

DEFINITELY interested. Only thing I fear is not being able to get one...so maybe there can be a way to prioritize those who submitted to the IC? Or maybe some way to create a queue system on Discord?

In terms of some things I would like to see: It would be awesome if the keyboard was hot swappable. It would also be incredible if certain Space65 components were backwards compatible with the Space80. For example, it would be amazing if the badge on the left was able to be used on both keyboards. I know some people have complained about the badge "protruding" out from the keyboard but I actually like this. Adds some aesthetic to the style.

In any case, count me in!

I reiterate what some of the other posters here have mentioned (which is also something that seems to be a common trend on Discord) in that I would definitely vote to move that USB to the left side to be consistent with the Space65. I already purchased a custom cable for the Space65 with coil and everything; would be extremely weird to have my coil jutting out from the right side of the keyboard and whatnot. +1 to move the USB to the same spot as the Space65, about 1.5" off the left.

I also agree with what an other poster mentioned regarding the side aesthetics of the keyboard. Would be nice to be somewhat similar to the Space65. Then again, I'd be perfectly happy with an exact replica of the Space65 in an 80% form, so maybe I'm the minority. ;D

Looking forward to getting this board though, for sure!

These are the best-looking keyboards I have ever seen, I really am sad to miss the space65,
I will do all I can to try and get one of these.

Interest is guaranteed 100% for me.

Look forward to seeing more Space80 Apollo!!

this will likely be my only 80% board. I don't usually go over 65%. But I will for Graystudio.

Missed Space65 due to not being very active on here

Any more GBs for that?

love the space series! Will definitely grab this one, hoping the space65 will get a rerun as well!

Agree with previous poster, if Space65 is restocked, will get that too. But then maybe I would have to get a third job 🥲😂😂

I will most definitely buy this. So excited, count me in! I love the badging over the arrows.

I've made a few posts in the past about "personal preference" or changes I'd like to see such as having the power on the left side of the keyboard, etc.

Something else that wasn't even really that obvious to me was the branding. I know it's been mentioned several times and I also know you're working actively on a prototype, so I apologize if it's too late, but I agree that I'd like to eliminate any branding on the keyboard! I appreciate the "cybervoyager" text on the Space65, but that's about it! Something I really appreciate about the Space65 is that the branding is on the removable colored piece, so technically if we wanted, we could suggest that you create a piece without the branding so we could replace it. In any case, I like the "cybervoyager" text on the back and wouldn't mind seeing "apollo" on the back of this keyboard, but not necessarily the company name.

I know that sounds awful since you're trying to get your name out there, but I just don't think the keyboard is the place for it. Just my 2 cents!

Since this is Space theme, called Apollo, I am expecting to see a color option that is matching the GMK Godspeed

Sleek designs as always :thumb: Not sure if this has been suggested, but the "GRAYSTUDIO" on the back of the board should really say "APOLLO" to fit more with the actual name of the board. I believe this was done on the S65 CV as well. Just my opinion.

This would be the first TKL I buy. If someone releases a Dune themed set later then I'd be good for life...

Tkl is a hole in my collection. This might be the one to fill it.

As my very first post on this forum I would like to state that I am so very interested in this keyboard... I found out about the Space65 too late, definitely hope to get my hands on this one.
