Potential Colors

More






All colors are rendered to be as close to reality as possible. However, it is not 100% possible to replicate real world environments so please do take these colors with a grain of salt.

GB Details
  • Sale format: 75 units (50 public raffle/25 FnF)
  • Start Time: ~July 2021
  • Fixed kit: Keyboard, 2 plates (1x 2mm PC/1x 1.5mm Aluminum), 1-2 PCBs (TBD in IC)
  • Price: TBD after receipt of prototype

Words about the Keyboard

I've designed a few different keyboards named after the same K-pop idol, each time utilizing the knowledge I've accumulated while designing keyboards. I intend for this to be the final iteration of this idea, utilizing everything I've learned thus far. At this time the design is mostly final, with a prototype on the way to make sure everything fits together as it should. In the event it does not, I'll go through another round of prototyping.

The main purpose of this IC will be to review the prototype and to decide on what colors will be available to participants. Additionally I'm unsure if the kit should include 2 PCBs to match the 2 plates, so I'll ask for your help on making that decision as well.

A sincere thank you to everyone who has shown me support during my time here in this community.

IC FORM

Milestones
  • Order prototype - complete March 1 2021
  • Start interest check - complete March 21 2021
  • Determine color choices
  • Determine # of PCBS to include w/ kit
  • Close interest check

Q&A

Q: What is a fixed kit?
A: A fixed kit is a way for me to reduce complexity for myself downstream while optimizing the cool things that come with the keyboard. The only choice you will have in this GB is the color of the keyboard.

Q: What is the significance of the bear?
A: It is on theme for the idol this is named after; the bear is a part of her signature.

Q: Ogre R2?
A: No Ogre...only RBB.

More Q&A will be added as questions are answered throughout the thread.

Dear yoot zekkin.
It may have already been brought to light, that the community is unsatisfied with the current state of this tenkeyless board.
Their main concerns is the engravings and name. They feel as if you are simply using it as a way to capitalize off the current popularity of the v-tuber k-pop organization known as Hololive red velvet. I, to some extend, agree with this.

While I do believe it is acceptable to make a board inspired by your favorite v-tubers idols, doing so consecutively without any clear link between the board and the v-tuber idols will arouse suspicion as to whether you are truly doing this due to passion for the keyboard community and the v-tuber idols your board is representing, or simply doing it for your own gain.

Although I do see the idea of making a series of v-tuber k-pop inspired keyboards, I would highly advise you to reconsider the direction the design of this board is heading in. Either you should directly link it to an v-tuber idol with clean engravings, or remove any current resemblance, and simply run the board as a standalone group-buy.

Either way, I do believe the board has the potential to turn out well.
Best of luck.

Is this based on one of those k pop things all these kids have as their avatars?

Jokes aside this looks clean and I am excited to see more on the proto. Not for me given the theme but good job.

Most people get extra PCB anyway, so it would be a good idea to make it a default.  That makes your life easier.
