[IC] GMK Laser
« on: Wed, 02 November 2016, 03:00:23 »
I appoligize if this is already on here somewhere, I could't find it so I thought I would share. 
 
An other set by the notorious MiTo. I am absolutely in love. This is the best 80's retro wave set I have ever seen. It hit the head on the nail with Thors hammer. 
 

Initial Idea

Welcome to GMK


Base


88


DeLorean


Shades


Arcade


Novelties



Outcome

Base set


Novelties (Will be updated)


There will be a standalone Planck + ErgoDox blank kit but no 40% coverage, due to the lack of demand


 


Discoussion is also open here: https://www.massdrop.com/talk/455/laser-gmk?referer=D3D4E9&mode=guest_open



Ignition On

This looks really cool! My only reservation is whether when  produced if it would retain the neon-like contrast you see in the renders.

Hard to say, but most other GMK sets have been even better than the renders after production I think.

It's an interesting idea, I'll do my best to accommodate all of the great suggestions/requests posted on MD, RMK and else. So please share your ideas and thoughts about the theme, what things you'd like to see? I'll be replacing te DeLorean for a VHS and a vynil disc, due to the very thin lines and manufacturing issues.

Since you guys were quick on the trigger and created the IC before I me, I'll just go ahead and reserve this reply spot so I can use it as OP, for updates and what not.

Haha yea, this kinda caught me offguard when I saw the thread pop up on my phone earlier, I've been waiting for this to show up in here so I was surprised when I saw you weren't the OP.

That said you already know I got nothing but love for this set, the colour scheme is wonderful and the theme is a personal favourite of mine - I'll be patiently awaiting further developments and hope this can become a reality sooner rather than later! It'll have a permanent spot on one of my boards, invariably. It's perfect.

Hahaha, yeah. I could definitely see some Kung Fury novelties getting added here.

Can't say I have, personally. But the book definitely looks interesting.

Neuromancer is a global masterpiece that originated the cyberpunk genre, because of the colors we are using I believe we can sneak some references in the Novelties. I'd like to check with people that actually read the book if DEX mean anything to you, anyone?

I loved Neuromancer as a kid, I admittedly read very little nowadays (little time, less patience) but when I was little I used to all the time and Neuromancer was actually one of the first books I read in English when I was like 13 or 14. It was/is very popular in Brazil isn't it, I think that's why it was a big thing in Portugal also years ago since we used to have a lot of Brazilian culture cross over a lot (our Disney movies were dubbed in PT-BR for the entirety of the 80s and most of the 90s, etc).



This version looks so cool, it's insane.

I look at this set and I think that there was never a set that a BroBot would be more perfect for.   A matching BroBot and Booper's Bruce on this set would be next-level.  Really, the only way to make this set more 80s would be to put it on a keyboard made of chrome and glass.

I hope the hue of the pigments in the actual caps is as saturated as the color in these renders.

That reference means nothing to me but it's been close to 30 years since I've read anything by Gibson.  I think the last book I read by him was The Difference Engine.  Still, I look forward to seeing any reference to cyberpunk.

I really love this set a lot.  Insta-buy for me.  If I could add anything it would just be support for HHKB layout (add-on smaller backspace key would be awesome).

it's like a cover for powerglove or lazerhawk.. so cool

I finally got started with it! i think its a little off putting it together with the "POP" 80ties movie references that already in the set :) and since it is a book. i would like the refs but, there is long way between pacman an DEX :)

My cousin has had a mech for a long time, but just recently decided to get an ergodox. I linked him this set and he's decided this will be his main set, and he is now into artisans. What have I done!?

Either way this is an AMAZING first custom keyset to own. Can't wait to see how it looks on his dox.
