Welcome to FOX -orange the  Group Buy!



Buyers' photos




Update on Aug 31th, 2017

Hi all,

Senter here. All packages have been send out and some people have already received their boards.

This is the first time we host a group buy for keyboards on Geekhack. 40 kits were sold to 37 customers. Thank you all for joining this GB. Thank you for putting your trust on an inexperienced team. I hope you will like the keyboard.

There are some experiences I'd like to share with you.
  • First, we didn't design the google form very reasonable and as a result it took me a lot of time to communicate with some of you to confirm the information.
  • Second, I didn't think over about the options. As a result, there were too many options to make. Three layouts and with/without nameplates, that's 6 types of cases for just 40 kits. We also offered too many color options which seriously increased our and the factory's workload. You know it's much more expensive to make 40 different cases than 40 same cases. I negotiated with the factory many times to make it happen.
  • I learnt a lot about your demands. As many people suggested, we changed the design of the seam in the middle of two pieces, changed the suitcase, added another option for the plate, and so on.
  • There are also some requests we didn't make true, like ALPS plate/pcb, split backspace.

I really learnt a lot from this group buy. I believe we can do better the next time.

There're also several things we didn't make perfect.
  • We didn't print numbers on the nameplate of founder editions. They were printed Orange in place. We didn't make it right because the technician was tired with the tons of options of small order.
  • For 2 or 3 plates we didn't make the color right. The fault is on our side that the packing people told me that after the packages were send out.
  • It took us 10 days to examine all the 40 boards. We checked the packages carefully but I'm still not 100 percent sure all the boards are perfect.

If you find the kits have any problems you can't accept, the ones I mentioned or not, please feel free to contact me.

I won't call our first GB is a successful one since there are some known problems. I'm really sorry to those whom were affected. I promise I did my best to make everything right but I failed.

Thank you again for joining our first GB. We will make it better the next time.

Regards,
Senter

Update on July 16th, 2017

GB is no longer accepting orders. We will send out all the invoices and organize the orders in the following days.

After we accept all the payments or after July 25th, we will start manufacturing and sourcing the keyboard parts.

Thank you for your support!




Update on July 11th, 2017

New photos were updated here



Please check the information or your order here and reply to me if there's any thing
wrong with your order. You can still change the information before GB is closed.

We're sending out invoices to you. There will be an additional invoice if you selected the
assembly service. You can still change the colors and other options after you paid the
invoice, so please feel free to pay. We will start making the cases according to the order
of payment, but you can pay the invoice as late as July 25th.



Update on July 7th, 2017

New photos were updated here






Update on July 4th, 2017

New renders updated here



Renders are not real photos. These can only help you to image how the final keyboards will look like.

New photos with keycaps on the keyboard will be updated later!



Update on July 3rd, 2017


  • We will also offer MX openable cutout plate! The normal MX cutout plate is still the default option. If you need the plate supports switchtop remove, please leave a message at the end of the form when you fill in it.
  • There was a small gap between the top and bottom cases. As many of you requested, we decide to remove the gap and make the keyboard has a cleaner look. Please PM me if you have already filled in the form but don't like this change.




We are coming!

I named it Orange because the inspiration comes from oranges.
I provide the thinner design and high quality material.
They make the keyboard out of the ordinary. Wish you will like it.

The GB order form doesnt have a place to input the custom text for the name plate

Also, which color is the one shown in the pictures? (as well as the color of the plate)


Edit: I just ordered the silver with golden plate, i hope that's the one in the pictures :)

Thank you! also I just realized there was no option for aluminum vs brass weight, perhaps it's supposed to be in the position of "option 3"

Really interested in joining, but I have some questions about the GB form.
  • For the Small Blocks layout, is it the same as this one (one 6.25u + six 1.25u)? http://i.imgur.com/IfHp2Ue.jpg
  • The nameplate color is a mandatory field. If I don't want a nameplate, will it just be ignored?
  • The weight color field, is that for only the aluminum weight, or does it also include brass?
Thanks!

I love the soft edges.  It's a nice change of pace. The scene in China is really packing a punch lately...


Question: Can we order more than one name plate?  I would like one personal and one more adaptable for the masses in case I ever decide to sell/trade in the future.

I heard about the X60 tragedy and I understand your concerns. The difference is our close partner own the factory by himself, so we have more control on the quality. We will also take photos/videos before shipping them out. Hope this alleviate your concerns.

Yes. There's a 'Do you need extra parts' question in the form. You can write down what you need and the details there.

Could you please make it so the plate supports switch top removal? Doesn't seem to be the case in the pictures and that comes close to being a deal breaker for me :(

Also, I would love to see a picture of this board with caps on it ;)

Yes, we discussed about the switch top removal plate and we decide to offer this option as well. Please leave a message about the plate type at the end of the form when you fill in the form.

We will update the photos in one day or so. The prototypes were send out to our distributors in China for reviewing. I can take more photos after we got the prototypes. BTW, all our distributors highly praised the quality of our keyboard!

There will be rubber mount in the bottom which will pump it only a little bit.

I will update the shipping price for Asia later. You can expect it lower than shipping to US.

Not sure if this was asked already, will there be more prototypes showing a few more colours (of the outer casing at least)?
I'm not too good with visualising  :-X

Someone mentioned images of the case with keycaps -- that'll be great too.

Someone mentioned images of the case with keycaps -- that'll be great too.

We've only made 4 prototypes.

http://imgur.com/09E08mh Here are the photos for grey, black, and white

We also updates some photos of renders for different colors in the post

Is the white really that bright irl? Or is that the photo?


It's really very bright. Only the white color is not anodized, it's made by another technique.

So beautiful, I love how it's so sleek! Reminds me of my iphone! Nice  :thumb:

Not sure if this was asked already, will there be more prototypes showing a few more colours (of the outer casing at least)?
I'm not too good with visualising  :-X

Is the black glossy?

Yes, all the cases except the white one will be glossy but only a little.

I hate to be "that guy", but my favorite thing about this keyboard was the slim profile and the small gap between the top and the bottom.  That gap made it perfect and really unique  :(

Hey man, I totally understand your felling. We designed that gap at first because I like it. However most people prefer the case without the gap. It was a hard decision that we removed it.

The case still looks beautiful without the gap, in another way though.

I'm new at building keyboards, so please excuse my ignorance. What would the assemble service include?

I like the curves of the keyboard, it kind of reminds me of a "larger" ducky mini lol!

Presumably full assembly. Stabs, switches, everything but firmware.

If I want to order 2 full kits, do I just fill out the form a second time?
