Feature Update:


I will be adding both Buckling Spring and Alps connectors after launch. Due to time constraints, they will not be available at launch. But rest assured, they will be here eventually.

A quick production update:


I decided to add more wall thickness to the parts from 1.5mm to 2mm. This is essentially pushed to the absolute limit possible before interfering with functionality of the switch depression.
This has slightly set back production time, but I think you might appreciate this small, yet significant adjustment.

Can't wait for the BS version... Will it have the form factor / look of an actual bs keycap or is it smaller/bigger? (hope you understand what I mean)

It will have the same height as BS caps. It will not, however, be angled back at the top.

This thread was opened to trick you all into believing you can get a bot, but I'm sad to say they are all sold to me. Just go home. Nothing to see here. Sorry

I am very interested in getting my first BroBot, but I assume these will be sold out in an instant.

Do you plan to make a list of interested people and then sell them randomly so everybody gets a chance to get one?

Or is it first come, first serve?
