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.

I mean, it wasn't designed with an o-ring in mind. I would assume no, or at the very least it probably won't be tested.

I see. Does this mean I need some foam for the bottom of the PCB to eliminate ping?

Can you use an O-ring here?

Hello! No o-ring this time -- this will be pure top mount.

I see. Does this mean I need some foam for the bottom of the PCB to eliminate ping?

good keyboards don't need extra stuff

Very cool overall but I really don't care for those engravings  :-X I'd stick with just the ZJ, front or back is fine. Just a suggestion, anyway good luck with IC!

what is the front height? (perpendicular distance from the desk to the front of the r4 keycap) or effective keyboard height? https://github.com/Croktopus/effective-keyboard-height
what are the plate materials available? sorry if I missed it in the main post, I can't seem to find it
renders of the plate?
will the plate be contacting the top case along the perimeter of the top case internals? again, might be me not being able to see it properly

Front face height: 17.8mm
EKH: 22.1mm

what are the plate materials available? sorry if I missed it in the main post, I can't seem to find it

This is in the main OP:

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

renders of the plate?
will the plate be contacting the top case along the perimeter of the top case internals? again, might be me not being able to see it properly





And yes, the plate makes contact with the perimeter of the top case internals so as to not show and unsightly gap between the plate and top case.

Hope all that is helpful.

If I died today, and it turns out that not only is God real, but he's actually a zekk TKL with a Hiney PCB, MX Browns, and Handerbait, I wouldn't even be mad.
Fingers crossed for a good price when the proto arrives, my wallet can only take so much right now.

Also, I've never joined a raffle before, how does that work? Input your email and if you "win" a slot, you get an email requesting payment details?

So some slightly unfortunate news -- the factory informed me last night that the backlog from pre-CNY was too big and not enough machines were available, so despite putting the order in ~3 weeks ago, production has not started on the prototype.

I'll be sure to update re: the prototype when I get more info from the factory.

---

I mentioned this on my stream last night but the results for the PCB portion of the IC are overwhelmingly for including 2 to match the 2 plates, so we'll go with that.

Keep filling in that form! I hope Warm Gray and Evergreen make it!

Hey all, it's been a little while and there's been quite a few responses on the IC. So far it's looking like these will be our color choices:



  • Black
  • Warm Gray
  • Red
  • Evergreen

It's not completely set in stone, so make sure to keep hitting that IC.

---

Unfortunately, still essentially no movement on the prototype manufacturing. Hoping that'll be on the move in the next week or two.

Small update -- prototype is done and has been shipped. I'm expecting to receive it sometime this coming week. I'll have photos up shortly after I receive it as well as some initial opinions/thoughts on what needs to be changed (if anything :P).
