Hey Vermillion is there any chance you could post the list here so we can know who has made it and who hasn't? Also, what is the production process going to look like?

As I said that list thing was a big mistake haha.
I'll keep in my own way.
I'll cut this IC thread when I cannot handle more.
Bur it's not a guarantee that who posted here gets joined.
I really need your understand that I'm not doing this for business way.
So there is no formal or standard way.
But it should be fair and clear I wish I can do that.

Thanks for clarifying.

As long as I get in it's cool

I'm sure you will have no problem with the people on the list so far.
Especially with the people on kbdlab who are in on this.

* I read last posts and saw some arguing about thread title
* I'm a bit scared  :-[, plus I cannot understand some of posts (short english hmm)
* anyway, I'm a Korean, and all my keyboard is Korean, so I think this is not a problem on this thread.

Especially with the people on kbdlab who are in on this.

I think the main problem will just be being overwhelmed by the amount of interest and potential orders. It might be hard to satisfy everyone's request.

I mean, the Octagon v2 buy is a great example of this. I didn't expect that one to get so much rabid attention, but this one is on another level in terms of uniqueness.

I can only imagine the interest being much higher when all is said and done.

I just don't know how Zefyr will meet all of the interest. I would imagine, like the Octagon v2, there will have to be a cap somewhere! He did say that he will close the IC when it becomes too much, so we shall see. ;)

In for one and a stand.

This will be my first and only split keyboard.

One question - how does the keyboard fit back together? Do the halves just rest flush against each other, or is there some kind of clicking/locking mechanism?

Does anyone know if this will come assembled or as a kit?  Switches included or no?  If not, this thing is gonna get expensive real fast, but my incomg 78g Zealios would probably feel right at home on it :)

I've heard that assembly might be offered, but I don't see how it'd be more expensive if it came as a kit, especially if you have switches already! Usually, it's always more expensive (and a PITA for me anyway) to buy assembled boards. I prefer kits so I can customize exactly as I want. :)

It's gonna be a toss-up between blue Alps or vintage MX "clicky clear" white switches in Zealio housings with carbon fiber stickers for me. :3

Yep, they are free, they do not lock.

It'll make transporting this one a little tricky. A custom case like the ergodox sorts would work for this, me thinks.

I don't have the tools, knowledge, or space to put the board together myself so I would have to send it to someone else to have it put together, along with the switches.  So I would have to pay for international shipping to myself, then to someone else to put it together, and then to have it shipped back to me on top of the cost of having it put together.

I am the same way. Would still love customization options, but an assembled option would save me the cost of shipping + serves of having a third party put it together.

Karura, the PCB is MX and Alps compatible or an "MXAlps" PCB, as I like to call them. No worries about needing a separate PCB. Now, when it comes to plate, I can't say.

 I'm going to speculate that there are separate plates, but there might be a chance that the plates are similar to LZ and JDCarpe's designs with notches that allow not only for MX switch top opening, but Alps compatibility.

Because alps caps usually use stabs of a different kind there are separate plates.

The more I look at this the more I think that left cluster looks out of place. Aren't those usually reserved for Fn keys? Since the board already has F keys and the right cluster, the left seems unnecessary, and doesn't look like a good num pad replacement.

That's just me. I think it still looks beautiful.
