availability

idk yet, message me on discord please

Going to preemptively mention that this keyboard will likely not be good for your wallet. I’m personally aiming for under $600 but we’ll see what happens when I get a vendor who knows more about this than me.


updates

May 1st, 2024: IC posted


faq

More colour options?
Maybe? Depends on if DDS doesn’t charge me more and if vendors are cool with more SKUs.

Hotswap?
I’ve given Callie enough money and she will also extort me because she doesn’t want to make it. I highly recommend hitting up a local builder and getting your board millmaxed if hotswap is the route you want to take.

Polycarbonate case/plate?
PC cases kinda scare me after trying to fix warped horses for months. As for plate, I really only see myself offering alu since it works best with the leaf spring.


misc

Socials
Discord | Instagram | Site

Thanks
More
- Patty for using sugar mommy funds to help me prototype this
- calliah, but I’m still not running the keychain
- @_megrocks for enabling me and creating this
- Hatsune Miku for letting me use her as promotional material even though she’s not even my cat
- Susan and the rest of Mintlodica for using it in a render a couple times and getting me 200 Instagram followers in one day in what was basically a feline orbital strike at my target market
- literally everybody i led on by not doing anything with this
- Sena and Gus for helping with the journey, even if they couldn’t stay the whole way


^ 1. Alu only.
^ 2. Measured at the Control keys and without feet.

cherry blacks - unlubed - filmed and springswapped with tx 55g mediums - alu Plate | pretty happy with this, the blacks were cherry picked so they weren't that scratchy to begin with, but currently breaking them in, may lube them with a dry lube like ro59 or ptfe powder.
| hhkb bt
More
lubed with tribosys 3203 | like topre a lot, prefer it lubed but did make less tactile but that might have been a skill issue. probably will get more tactile over time as the domes age.
| m0115
More
bad orange alps lol | definitely needs a restoration. planning on wax boiling them and maybe a replacement pcb because the board has only 2 key rollover apparently.
| praxis
More
gateron yellows - lubed with 205g0 - 62g tx mediums - pc plate | probably my favourite keyboard already, feels super nice and sounds pretty good, it's got a great layout as well. probably gonna build this with mx browns, I feel like it would suit the board more.
| camo filco
More
stock with silent reds | Pretty cool looking board, the silent reds are actually good, they are smooth and I don't mind the mushiness (it's not even that mushy as well). the layout is pretty weird, but is useable. will probably mod this in the future. maybe a pcb and plate swap, change the keycaps to something dolch like, and also spring swap the springs in the silent reds.

i'm sorry but it's not real
