Hey guys, is there any chance that there are any VE.A PCB's floating around?  I'd love to have a spare MX PCB for safety's sake :)

Also, what are the LED's used for the underglow?  One of mine is sometimes stuck on even when I turn the LED's off, or it doesn't turn on at all.  I might try to replace it.

no pcbs

LEDs are WS2812 i believe

Dang, well I hope that nothing's wrong with mine.  This LED issue is bugging me.

I'll do some research on the LED's.  I think that they're the WS2812B as well.  Thanks for confirming.  Hopefully it's just an LED problem and not a microcontroller issue.

They are WS2812Bs, which are also NeoPixel 5050s. 99.9999% of the time, it's the RGB module. A failed controller wouldn't exhibit as one LED stuck because of how the serial data protocol works.

From what I understand getting rid of the SATA connection between the two halves and making the whole package easier to manufacture are the two main goals of the project. 
I believe they're going to be run through Typemachina which concerns me a bit tbh as it looks like they're building a storefront for custom keyboard makers like LZ, Oddforge and others.

i love this keyboard... its perfect!

im very new to this,
does each key has a led also? or is there a way to add single key leds?

i have a few ideas for the new v2..
make a complete frosted case for the keyboard and the wrist rest.
and add a volume/switch knob with press function in the corner :D

frosted polycarb go AWAY as a keyboard material

it's good for looks only, worse for everything else

In the light of recent events I think you see why I view any attempt to corner the market with suspicion.

I thought this too, then I was able to get one. Not only get one, but get THE one, the one that was Odd Forge's baby they let randomfrankp review, their "perfect" VE.A. But it didn't stop, and I realize now what the veteran members say when they warn that there is no end game. I hope you can get one of these.
