Interesting.

Do you have an exploded view / internal photos showing how you've done the magnets?

Also, what is 'stabiliser foam' and why is there 8 of it included?

What materials are the case / plate made from?

What firmware will the PCB use?

None of the videos clearly show the USB port. Could you please post a photo of it? And confirm what USB connector it uses?

What is the single screw used for?

Hey, not the designer but I've been following this in pre-ic.
-Case is alu
-Plates are TBD, proto used alu and copper, this is a question in the IC
-The PCB uses QMK
-It's USB-C, I don't have a picture of the port tho
-I believe the screw is for the daughterboard.

I hope that helps. Also, glwic suika, love your work :)

40s, with love

Been following this one for a little while, and I'm glad to see this come to IC! Really love the unique case design and the gloss finish. Looking forward to group buy.

I didn’t realize this was base kit compatible. I’m liking it even more now!

This looks amazing but pricing is bit higher for a 40% keyboard.

Very good point. Here's the reasons why this keyboard is expensive:

- The sculpted design needs more milling time.
Which means the production costs getting higher than the usual cases.
And these are nearly 1,800g total, which is super heavy for 40%.

- This keyboard needs 2x plate and pcb (2 each, 4 total).
This also raises the production cost.

- There are 3 surface finishes (polished, anodized, and coating) on this round.
- Only 100 units available
I could not take advantage of the volume discount because of these factors.

Thank you for saying that 😂😂😂 Actually, the profit margin of this keyboard is relatively low. Plus, the production costs kept getting higher and higher in this situation

I love how this looks and the effort in the design but without dedicated numbers I find it not a daily driver.  I do wish you luck though and admire creating something original in a sea of 60% and TKL boards.
