Hey, I just have a suggestion for your 75% keyboard's option.
Few weeks ago, I saw some keyboards that are including white color(MAO?) option.
All colors of your keyboards are awesome, but I'll absolutely fall in love with yours if it provides white color :D

Thanks!

Some renders of the other projects I'm currently doing. The 75% prototype is under production and I expect the sample before CNY, the TKL prototype will probably be ordered after CNY.

I think you're the first one who asked for it, I will have to think about it. As an ANSI user I dislike the lack of stability a universal plate has, I'll have to check how feasible offering two plates will be (ANSI and UNIVERSAL). I'm expecting a prototype soon. Thank you!

The KIRA96 should be coming soon™, and the latest prototype will be at the Phoenix meetup AFAIK.

I would like to see a non centered usb port in the kira 75, just a personal preference and I think it looks better that way. Also usb c would be nice.

regarding the lack of thought put into ISO support, will the 96 support ISO?


ISO market is growing and will miss out on customers wanting ISO... as a mainly ISO user I'd be willing to pay a few bucks extra for ISO specific (or universal) plate

Here are some photos of the Kira 75 prototype with SP Calm Depths. Some info:

- top mounted plate (aluminum, but brass might be offered as an option)
- aluminum or acrylic accent strip/layer
- 3 LEDs on the upper left (provisions on the custom PCB)
- big-ass brass weight makes this thing really heavy for its size
- bootmapper client to program the custom PCB

I will ask Andrew of Input Club.

All the boards I designed and developed use 8°, the 96-key by Input Club is 8.5° last time I checked.

I have to ask, would you be considering a matching numpad to go along with the Kira87? with the futuristic sides a numpad even as a separate unit would look gorgeous let alone alongside the TKL.

Just putting it out there in case, and as always love your work guys :)

Haha yeah, we haven't announced it but the TKL will have an accompanying tray-mount numpad with faceted sides. Keep it a secret, maybe?  :-X

Won't overlap, or happen before the TKL and maybe the 75.

About 3 months from launch is what we hope for. Just go with your favorite one :D
