I know you guys will probably shift your attention to other projects now but is there an aegis build video up somewhere? If not, it'd be awesome if you guys could do a basic build video. Thanks.
Hey there, taekeyboards recently got a board from me, so there should be a video soon, and I heard taehatypes also got his hands on one.

Well that's just how good Nathan is. I've watched almost every stream of his and I still learn something new everytime.

Aeryxz, the keyboard was a hit on the stream. He was really impressed. Kudos to the Aegis team for this hard work :)

I am still getting used to mine, loving it though! I messed up a bit around the screw holes because I didn't realize just how small they are. Oh well, it's very minor and IMO something bound to happen. Unfortunately my anodization doesn't match top to bottom, the top is much deeper colored. I got the navy blue color. I think I am going to opt for getting a cerakote done instead. If I do, I'll post pictures here. It'll be a cerakote of both the case and plate, specifically to match modern dolch.

Hello,

Any chance of getting the PCB and plate file? I'd like to make another plate of a different material and get a fixed PCB made.

Thanks!

I think I can provide a plate file - just been super busy with life at the moment.

No plans to run aegis again yet.

The new June July (Maybe August?) will be revealed soon, but as I said above, I have a lot of things going on in my life at the moment - but I would like to reveal some more information to people who are still in this thread.

We have a new board coming out soon, and it shares DNA with the aegis in terms of the design language, but it will feature a different layout that I feel is less divisive than the aegis.
I was actually carrying it at a university recently (https://www.instagram.com/p/ByKJTW1nEhB/).

We will have more key information soon but here's some of the main points:

- Left hand numberpad (2u's on the left reverse numpad style OR ortholinear grid of 1u)
- 65% on the right (fixed bottom row, normal or split backspace compat)
- designed to feel solid on your desk but light enough for portability. All boards will come with a sleeve so you can carry it in your bag. This board is definitely a user, not just to look good on your shelf.
- Gasket (it is 2019, year of them gaskets https://www.instagram.com/p/Bye4l1tHe9Q/)
- QMK/VIA
- Black, Dark Gray, and 'aegis' Navy
- no GB -> Parts are being machined at the moment out of my pocket, so there is little risk as a gb buyer, and when you buy it, it will get to you asap!

+++ even more exciting things!

and there will be reviews and videos soon. I'm looking forward to reveal more to you all and hope you will also love this board too.





A big thanks to aeboard members (solidsnake, xelus), wilba, my family (who are supporting me in this busy time of my life), and the cool community of people who keep this hobby interesting.

If you bought one and are interested in a fixed PCB that you would have to self assemble, please fill out this form:

https://forms.gle/8LTDzhXdcD5ENvra8

Price TBD, but since it's self-assembled, shouldn't be too expensive. Note: You need to be able to solder small components, this isn't an easy soldering job.
