[IC] GMK SKIDATA+ (GB IS LIVE)
« on: Sat, 01 August 2015, 02:18:24 »


THE SKIDATA+ GB THREAD IS NOW LIVE!
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=76521.msg1913011#msg1913011


Designed to support various layouts, SKIDATA+ will support ANSI, ISO, 1800, HHKB, 75%, 60%, and additional layouts, while retaining the clean and simplistic DNA of the original keyset.
In addition, there will also be add-on keypacks offered, designed to compliment and inject some colour into the base keyset.

[1] SKIDATA+ BASE SET:


[ADD-ON: A] GREY SPACEBAR SET:



[2] SKIDATA+ COLOUR PACK:


[ADD-ON: B] ORANGE SPACEBAR SET:



[3] SKIDATA+ RELEGENDABLES SET (TBA on GB)
Yes, Cherry profile relegendables are happening. They were extremely difficult to make happen, and will be offered. :)


More will be revealed as official mockups are received from GMK. Mockups are live!

We should add some relegendable keys, that would be very close to the spirit of the original keyboard.

And there was me saying I wasn't going to buy any more keysets :-X
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Excited for this, really hope it has text only capslock like the pictures above. I don't really care about the other keys, but I hate the handbag capslock symbol.

It would be great to have:

1) Simple alphas as alternatives, without the corner additions like "@" (the right-bottom corner double shots)
2) Additional Bumped F/J's - similar to https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=71507.0
3) 1.25/1.5 keys as "Ctrl" and 1.75 key as "Control" (The 1.25 "Control" is too crammed, it also clashes with the 1.75 "Control" - if they are used on the same keyboard)

As long as the TAB mod get's fixed I'll definitely be in.

I personally considered Charred Orange to be a flawed set.

What problems?

1: The orange plastic of the keycap appears to be thinner or slightly more translucent than OG Skidata. This gives it a "faded out" orange look that doesn't quite pop out as much. This was determined with some keyboard science, and a LED torch! :)
2: The mould used for the tab was a weird one.

Both of these concerns will be addressed to GMK, have no fear. I am on it!

Is it worth hoping for a DE pack?
I am interested if a NO pack becomes available :)
If I can get a set with UK legends, I would be pretty satisfied.

There will definitely be ISO keys that will fit on your ISO keyboards.
We can definitely consider doing a separate language pack, but please keep in mind that GMK MOQ is quite high, and if we can manage to get enough interest, we can do an add-on DE pack or something.

I need a spare set! :P

Just use some of my photos for mockups. ;)

Jacco, I am glad to have your support! It's no secret that SKIDATA+ has been in the works for over 10 months now, and I am glad that we are finally able to realize this dream. Thank you for letting me use your photos :)

Not sure what does this mean... You mean 60% non standard bottom row?


Hmm, might be interested if there's 60% support.

Hello sir what I meant is most of the 60s that I know about use 1.25x bottom rows with one of them usually a Fn (in place of the menu key typically). So adding a 1.25 blank or Fn or some logo or something would support all of those boards.

What about adding in size 1 the following 6 caps for the 75% keyboards: PG Up (R2), PG Down (R3), End (R4), FN (R4), CTRL (R4), ALT (R4) ? These are only 6 keycaps but I think many of us have this size of board... :-)

Or alternative have an extra extension set for 75% keyboards? In this set it would include the above + the Arrows (R4) and the Win/CTRL/ALT on the left?

What about adding in size 1 the following 6 caps for the 75% keyboards: PG Up (R2), PG Down (R3), End (R4), FN (R4), CTRL (R4), ALT (R4) ? These are only 6 keycaps but I think many of us have this size of board... :-)

Or alternative have an extra extension set for 75% keyboards? In this set it would include the above + the Arrows (R4) and the Win/CTRL/ALT on the left?

The 75% keys will be included in the base set, as stated in the original post. SKIDATA+ will be following the conventional Cherry 75% layout, so that is (from top to bottom) Home, PgUp, PgDn, End.

I am not sure what you mean by arrows + Win/CTRL/ALT on the left, as these keys will for sure be included in the base set, in both Winkeyless and Winkey sizes.

The base set will include keys for 1800, HHKB, 75%, and some extras, all in Skidata colours. There won't be many keys, if any, that you will lack from the baseset.

Do not worry, as a keyboard enthusiast like yourself, my intentions have always been to offer a complete Skidata keyset for the community, with enough keys to fit every conventional Cherry-style keyboards out there. (Unfortunately, there are weird keyboards that use strange layouts like the Filco Minila; there is simply no way to support those unconventionally sized keys).

It will be a lot more clear once the mockups are posted; please look forward to that :)

Oupsie I missed the 75% part ... my bad.
I meant with "by arrows + Win/CTRL/ALT on the left" to have an extra set for only those who do not want to purchase a base set but would like to beef up their existing GMK's. That was just an idea.
I think you/we have a great starting point here and look forward to see this come to its fruition. :-)
