[IC] Stratos - Stacked Acrylic | Gasket Mount | 60%
« on: Mon, 22 February 2021, 09:52:29 »
Stratos
Stacked acrylic, gasket mount, 60% keyboard



262778-0


Stratos is a cascading, stacked acrylic keyboard with a premium typing experience.

262780-1


The curve of the case from the top to the bottom was designed to highlight the acrylic layers rather than hide them.
The 18 gaskets create a comfortable typing experience that isolates the plate from the rest of the case. Sound dampening foam is utilized for better acoustics.


Specs
10 frosted acrylic layers
Top layer: Standard, WKL, HHKB
60% layout
~6.5 degree typing angle
Gasket mount
Plate: Aluminum, POM, FR4
Sound dampening foam
PCB: Supports standard 60% PCB's


Plate Layout

262784-2

Price: TBA
Date: TBA
Production time: Ships 1-2 months after GB ends

I'm in, this would be sick for a silent build.

Unknown price or date, but you know it will ship 1-2 months after?

Also, interested.

I suppose I meant TBD - the price and date are still being finalized. And based on the manu estimates so far, shipping within 1-2 months after GB is feasible.

Any renders of the mounting points for the plate? 18 gaskets sounds like a lot; too many and too wide mounting points can bring stiffness and ping in my experience that take away from the main point of gasket mounting.

I replied to your comment on reddit, but I'll paste it here for others wondering the same thing.

"Thanks for the feedback - I'll update with more renders soon. There are 12 gaskets on the plate (6 top and bottom), and the 6 other gaskets act as bumpers to keep the plate in position."

No prototype? Seems like with something that can be laser cut in a few hours and doesn't have any special screw consideration, you could have a typing test and show a prototype for this before looking for interest in another 60% case.
F Keys belong on the left.

So far, I've built prototypes of 3 earlier iterations of this keyboard, but they do not represent the current version. I will update the post when the current prototype is finished.
