That would a god damn joke if the keyboards are made in Germany but no ISO lineup would be produced. At least it will be easier to find some ISO keycaps set. It may be worth going for the Novatouch then.


What about the switch of the keyboard? Do we have any intel?

Well since GMK did take the Cherry tooling and nothing else really I assume that there is only one answer.
It would be surprising if they did anything else.

They could troll everyone and use MY switches.

I've just pressed GMK for more info, they said all they can reveal at this time is there will be a launch date in March 2015. Not long now!
It's a good width!  If it's half-width it's too narrow, and full-width is too wide.

I hope it won't be like Cherry! I was hoping for a new type of switch or something alike  :'( . Perhaps it was a dumb expectation.

Nothing yet, I'm keeping a close eye out for the newsletter announcement. Hoping for an early March release rather than late!

I'm just hoping they offer some keysets as well, would be a huge missed opportunity if they didn't. What worries me is that they're not going to offer double-shot, looking at the windows key on that set on the Uniqey site has me pretty worried.

I wouldn't be surprised if the keysets were pad-printed, though something tells me a move like this is aimed at enthusiasts so they may take some extra steps to make them more appealing

More then 3 million configuration options, aluminum case made from strong anodized lightweight metal, wear resistant keycaps, and more.

Also for the bluetooth symbols, it really does look like FN+F1 would be desktop usb connection, FN+F2-F4: bluetooth devices 1-3, FN+F5: bluetooth off...
Definitely looks interesting, hope it can live up to the hype!

The problem with advertising tactics like that is that they can become very meaningless very quickly.  Are all 3 million possibilities actually going to be useful/desired?  What can we customize?  If we can choose custom keycaps, for example, that's a huge plus to me.  "3 million" different LED combinations?  Not so much.  :P  Not because I don't like LEDs, but because I consider it misleading to call those all independent "configurations".  That's what I was referring to.  ;)

one thing i don't like is that their pbt caps are too soft. If you're using a wire keycap puller the wire will dig into the keycaps. I have some really ugly edges on my keycaps until I learned to only use a plastic puller on this set.

$250 is actually not bad for a keyboard that has alu case, GMK double shot keycaps and is programmable


but it was some kind of ugly the last time I checked

I think the customization of the keycaps is going to end up determining how successful these are going to be.

Hmm.  Depending on the level of customisation, that might not be so bad.

It says:
More then 3 million configuration options, aluminum case made from strong anodized lightweight metal, wear resistant keycaps, and more.

Also for the bluetooth symbols, it really does look like FN+F1 would be desktop usb connection, FN+F2-F4: bluetooth devices 1-3, FN+F5: bluetooth off...
Definitely looks interesting, hope it can live up to the hype!

I think that more than 3 million possibilities is a hell of customization possibilities. ;)

The problem with advertising tactics like that is that they can become very meaningless very quickly.  Are all 3 million possibilities actually going to be useful/desired?  What can we customize?  If we can choose custom keycaps, for example, that's a huge plus to me.  "3 million" different LED combinations?  Not so much.  :P  Not because I don't like LEDs, but because I consider it misleading to call those all independent "configurations".  That's what I was referring to.  ;)

I very much agree that 3 million configuration options could mean pretty much anything,
and that advertising techniques like this are usually fishy.

Since the numbers add up quick, for all we know it could just mean rgb lighting or multi layer programmability for example.

I just saw the in part translated quote and felt obligated to complete it... xD

If the keyboard can live up to the hype this could be very interesting tho! =)

Looks like the release of a silencing top-switch, reducing noise by 10db, and available aftermarket soon.
