Hello keyboard people!

I present to you first ever southpaw 1800 Alice.

                                                                               
DISCORD SERVER - For updates regarding Mountain Alice
https://discord.gg/2RUg4WeXXE/url]
                                                                               


Top angle renders




                                                                               


Bottom angle renders

More


                                                                               


One tone color renders




                                                                               


Two tone color renders

More





                                                                               


Wrist rest



Wrist rest is a concept, will not be polycarbonate because it is too large to be PC and will definitely yellow overtime.
Most likely if this is going to come to reality the body might be anodized aluminum or wood (not decided yet)
and will have an colored anodized aluminum accent at the end of it.




                                                                               


Physical specs:

- Typing angle 5.5
- Mounting: Top mount + Burger mount using o-rings
- Front height: 20.6mm
- Seamless design
- Anodized aluminum body
- Internal brass weight sandblasted
- Anodized aluminum plate (Only aluminum material option for now, will try including PC and brass)


PCB Specs: (Designed by Gondolindrum)

- Features daughterboard
- VIA/QMK compatible
- ESD protection

- USB-C port
- Mirrored numpad
- ISO support
- Clicky rotary encoder
- LED indicators
- 9.5 degree angle on alphanumericals
- Soldered only

Layout of the PCB



                                                                               


USB-C port




Exploded render of knob, top frame, bottom frame, and case foam.




Flex cuts on plate which will create a more flexible typing experience.




Internal of mounting which is top mount + burger mount with o-rings
Plate is sandwiched between o-rings from bottom and top.





Knob will come in silver option too, or gold if you prefer it like in the renders.




                                                                               

FAQ

How many units?
- Depends on demand

Any estimation on price?
- TBD

Unfortunately, I tried and it is possible but the position of the keys would be similar to an ortholinear and would be awkward. This isn't the final design, I still am trying ways to add ISO support.

It might be added to the next revision the model!

What I like about the old layout is the extra key next to the "T" key, as for those who press "Y" with both left and right fingers might bind that. I think adding it back to the new layout could make it more easier to adjust.

That 2u right shift is kind of a compatibility killer - any chance at either a 2.25 or 1.75, making it a more standard size?

Yes, yes , yes.  Love everything about this, a full size alice for work.  Are you going to do a southpaw as well or replace this design with it?  Please if possible run this version first.  If I can also suggest that you run the wrist rest for it at the same time as the correct wrist rest is needed for proper alice use.

Good luck with this.

Planned on also modelling a custom wrist wrest for this. Will see how it goes if the people like it or not.

I'll probably make it an option for extras.

Very unlikely. Most likely depends on demand which layout receives the most attention and that will be the final layout.

For now this is a non-southpaw board.

Interesting project. Do you care to provide more details about the mounting system and case screws? The renders do a fine job of explaining the exterior but there is nothing for the internals.

You are going "screw-less", but the only way I can see that being possible(based off the renders you have provided) is having 4 screws under the feet(which isn't enough for even a 60% gasket board).

I'm very confused about the move to a south-paw design. This is generally a polarising opinion. Is this something you actually wanted to do before posting the IC, and couldn't decide on? Or are you just accomodating to requests made by people in this thread? It's been live for a day and you're fundamentally changing the layout and will have to remodel everything. This is incredibly odd for a personal project but makes sense if you're just designing for what "people want"(which isn't the way to go about projects imo).

I personally deteste designer names or logos on the exterior of boards("designed by X") because I believe it only serves a purpose for the board designer and no one else. I think an internal engraving is much more fitting for this application. Understandable if you wouldn't want to make this change; I understand it's an opinion.

Thanks for you reply, I wanted to create a keyboard for myself and the community too. But I couldn't decide if whether people wanted southpaw or not. (I don't mind southpaw or not). So I created an IC Form for the community to decide whether they want southpaw or non.

I'm just showing the incomplete version of the non-southpaw version of the model. Screws will be from the top of the board, not under the feet.

The brass weight will also have some changes in the second model.
I also plan on removing that designed by yoboard and adding a aesthetic logo instead.

I know you can't see them but I will only complete this model (non-southpaw) if the community prefers this layout. For now, there is no point putting any more work into this model until the community votes on the layouts in the IC form.

Thank you! I'll update the renders when the IC form is complete.

I need to know if the community prefers a southpaw or non-southpaw layout. Then I will do a remodel of this keeb.

For now the renders just show a representation of the board. (non-southpaw)

i think if you can do a quick render of the southpaw version so people can compare the two and make a decision
+1 on the idea

TY for making this, would be my first ergo Alice style keyboard if this some to fruition

Thanks, I see you have updated the IC with details around PCB (ESD protection, etc).

Once the design has progressed that far, I would like an exploded view, like huey asked earlier as well, to show the internals. And if you could also organise some renders of the board with some keycaps, in planned colours, that would be great.

Love the non-southpaw!

I was pissed I JUST missed the FLX Virgo which is essentially this keyboard, with with 10-key.  And I work in IT and use the 10-key a TON!  Would be perfect keeb.


I would also like to see color renders.  HUGE fan of the Dark Purple, Dark Green, Deep Burgundy color swatches.

I have enough budget for a prototype. Gasket means there are foams on the side of the plate to dampen sound and reduce vibrations when typing and top mount means it's mounted to the top frame of the keyboard.

There's an IC form to determine the final layout of the design. Once it is done I will design the case and PCB and have the prototypes ready by then.

You will use o-ring for the gasket mount?

No, it will be foam. The material of the foam is not decided yet. But i'm thinking of neoprene.

Love the southpaw version. Only I would change is not have a spacer/gap that elavates the F1~F12 row, in doing so it will resemble a true 1800 compact layout. This is insta buy!

If there is a normal full size option, not a southpaw or 1800, that would be awesome.

nice to see iso support, although i thought it was impossible on alice-style boards curious to see how it will work.
and being left handed on computers (my mouse is on the left, i am somewhat ambidextrous, depends on what i do) i do not really understand how having the numpad on the left helps, i would actually think that to be better for right handed peoples? or am i completely wrong in understanding that southpaw layouts were for lefties?

some people who play these Video Games prefer having more space for their mice with compact boards and with a southpaw you can have more Space for your mouse AND still have Numpad :-)

Purely for ergonomic or aesthetic preferences. There was an IC form between Southpaw and non-southpaw layout and southpaw won by a significant.

I understand why this board is southpaw, what i did not understand was the popularity of southpaw, because my understanding was that it was meant to be more ergonomic for left handed peoples, and that made no sense to me, but someone else corrected my wrong beliefs on the subject
still rather curious about how the iso is going to fit, as i stayed away from alice for the lack of ISO support.
Thanks for the reply though :).

I can assure the ISO fits quite nicely! It took me a week trying to make it fit without ruining the alice layout symmetry.

got really excited about the extra key on the left side y-spot, but i see that it's gone now. i feel like this is the biggest issue i have with split keebs as i tend to lean right with my right hand (finnish speaker/writer here, so heavy usage of the scandi keys).
would love to get a full size alice (don't really care if the numpad is regular or southpaw as long as there is a fully functional one) for my home studio, but not so keen on added rotary or oled.

i'll follow the progress with great interest. good luck with everything!

Very neat board :)

I have three questions:
1. Now that Southpaw won, will the normal design then be available also or only the Southpaw?
2. Is there a rough price estimate?
3. Which colours will be available?

Thanks for your time!

Very neat board :)

I have three questions:
1. Now that Southpaw won, will the normal design then be available also or only the Southpaw?
2. Is there a rough price estimate?
3. Which colours will be available?

Thanks for your time!

- Mountain Alice is only going to be Southpaw. YB has another project called Alice Everest which is the non-southpaw version.
- AFAIK colours are still being decided. YB may do another poll for colours, or only provide colours the manufacturer can make.

Hope this helps!

This is the first Alice-style board I’ve seen that really appeals to me. Southpaw numpad and knob both very nice to see.

Was their really more votes for southpaw than for not?  I am really surprised at that.  Maybe southpaw user got excited and voted (understandably) but non southpaw users did not bother.  I love this board design for what it sets out to do but I would prefer if it was not southpaw.

Wait, was this announced somewhere (probably the discord I'm guessing)? Always wanted to try an ergo layout but can't say I'm too keen on the southpaw part so if Everest is confirmed somewhere, I'd be interested in following it. Thanks

You can't satisfy everyone, and moreover, you did a survey which showed North paw is the meh one in most cases
