[IC] - KC 65% Gasket Mount
« on: Wed, 10 February 2021, 08:02:15 »
Hey keybpeople, Cody from Keybs Co here. I'm trying to gauge public interest for the keyboard I've been working on before going to the prototyping phase.



Google Form: https://forms.gle/dGwXMekrsfbGGt7PA
Imgur Album: https://imgur.com/gallery/f5Pa0Tt

Case Top: Anodized or E-white Aluminum
Case Bottom: Brushed or Polished Brass or Aluminum
PCB: ANSI Layout, Hotswap or Non-Hotswap (QMK/VIA Support)
Plate: Brass or Aluminum (possibly more options depending on feedback)
Daughterboard: USB Type-C (JST cable connecting daughter to mainboard)

GB is TBD. Depending on interest it will most likely be around 2 months out. Ship date would then be 6 months after GB ends, give or take.
The GB will be hosted on our website, with no limit on units. You will also have the option to select extra PCB's and Plates. Hopefully I didn't miss anything, please let me know if I did.

Thanks for reading! Looking forward to reading all of your feedback!

love the matching sized blockers on the bottom row, that is always a winning aesthetic choice for me  :thumb:

You have an interesting concept going for you looking at the bottom piece, but 1 post count, no prototypes. I'm skeptical to say the least.

I completely understand where you're coming from. I'll be posting a lot of updates whenever something happens. This was just the initial IC to gauge interest

That bottom is so different, I would recommend embedding some pics into your thread on here so people have easier access to them.

Really dig the Bauer blockers on this. The backside is definitely interesting!
