haha! nice! this caught my eye bc i just got done with my homework on mutual inductance. brilliant idea bc the symbols are completely fair use. im not crazy about the colorway only bc what other people have pointed out: it's very close to lightcycles, and basically i dont think it fits your theme. why dont you play around with electronics colors, such black/yellow or if you're not crazy about that then maybe something to do the old carbon resistors color code? and change the name to faraday or Olm's law. sorry. my nerd is showing. good luck.

I thought Electric was dead, but it's now back, and in GMK  :)

May I suggest changing two of the 1u novelties to 1.5u or adding 1.5u Code/Diamond/Super/Whatever keycaps?

For those who are curious, yes I am working on GMK Hana as well! I'm not sure which will come first when/if they go to production.

Great news as well!  :thumb:
This would fill a void since I somehow did manage to miss out on DSA Hana last year.

Said it on Reddit but will say it here too. Icon mods seem right for electric. Really hits home with a schematic or board layout. Hope to see an icon mod set, just like Yuri (controls alts and the whole lot of them), if text Mods are final for base kit.

This could be nice, but only if the fat down arrow is used for CapsLock instead of the handbag icon, in my opinion.

I'm definitely interested in this set, but even more so for GMK Hana, as I joined the MK community after the DSA Hana drop and I've been looking for it since. Would prefer SA/DSA profile but I'll take whatever I can get at this point. Any consideration for running it with MaxKey?

That could be an option. For now however I have my eyes set on GMK.

So I updated the colors to match what most people are saying, which is back to the lighter alpha legends and to replace the white with a darker color. I think it turned out pretty well, but if you don't like it please let me know, I want to find what appeals to most people. I'm still leaning towards the white on cyan, but I haven't seen much support for that.
Also, I assume no-one really wants the miku child deal, so I'm just going to dump that idea unless I see new interest for it.

The inclusion of the R3 `~ key makes this an obligated buy for me, so count me in; but, it should be in alpha color instead of mod color.

The novelties are an absolute must for me. Without them, the set just isn't as awesome (in my opinion). Are the colours reasonably accurate?

Please consider adding a 00 key for the number-pad alternate layout that includes it instead of a 2u 0 key.

Yes, I want to make it standalone as it would already be quite expensive.

Thoughts:

Base kit: Someone is going to ask for F J scooped or barred. Then you have to do something with numpad 5. I don't think you were here to see all the fuss about it.
Electronic symbols: Kinda forces you to buy this to give the base kit that extra pop it is lacking imo.
Ergodox: Looks better than base kit. Good choice on having legends on the keys. It emphasizes the "Electric" more.
Norde: Someone's going to ask for console area keys in their language to not have to buy novelties and have the option to use other keys.
DC: No scooped or barred fun?
Forum: Hmm. Might as well add MD in there too since you're including this kit and plan on dropping it on there.
Spacebars: Yep...

Any chance we can get alternate arrow keys in the cyan color as well?  Would be a nice visual break on some keyboards.

How expensive are we talking for the kit? I am super down for this kit, mainly because the full dox kit looks baller. Love the color combos overall.

- Would there be any extra room for a 1.51.75u R3 Fn keycap to swap for CapsLock, thus providing another alternative to the latter alongside the R3 Control? I have only seen this Fn cap included in GMK Calm Depths.
- R2 Backspace to complement the R2 HHKB Delete?

Also, the ErgoDox mockup shows duplicate vertical { ] keycaps. Is that intended?

Edit: key size

I like this design more now than when I first saw it, but I think I'd prefer the modifiers to be text only or icons only. Maybe text in the base set and icons in a child kit? although it would be interesting to see how the price would increase if both were included in the base kit.

What's up with people hacking keys off the norde sets now? If I'm to pay 200-250 USD for a set of keys, I expect it to cover the locale fully. I'd understand it if the keys were part of the base kit (as most would not need them, so just the basics there), but for a specialized set to not cover the languages/locales it's intended for is beyond me. It's only like 10 USD more to the set, so less than 5% of the total cost.

edit: and to all saying that some of the keys are unnecessary anyway, like the currently missing '§½', file your complaint to: https://www.csc.fi/

I'd move the base color off-centered 6U space bar to the main set, either adding it, or swapping it with the 6u centered. I'd be in anyways, the set has everything I need now and even some, just in case I want to populate a 50% or a 40%, awesome.

I couldn't make out the row profile in some of the diagrams.

1. Is the bottom row of the Ergodox kit going to be r4c (convex like a spacebar)?
2. Are the 1u and 2u keys in the spacebar kit going to be r4c?

I think that's how Yuri was designed.

Sorry, its been several months since this project has had any steam. I'm currently trying to get it onto a platform and hope I can soon, so expect some final revisions coming through (where I'll need everybody's advice on what to change as well).

As for GMK Hana, it seems like JTK is more likely at this point which imo is a good thing as their sets are high quality and relatively cheap compared to other manufacturers.

Stay tuned!

The nordic kit is missing a few keys for proper support of any european layout. You would not start removing keys from the dworak/colemak kit as a cost saving measure, so why would you do it for the nordic kit?

I guess the keys in the bottom line of the DC kit are scooped right? Could we have non-scooped version of these home row keys too?

The other keycaps I hope to change are those in the Ergodox kit(marked in red rectangles):

186107-0

It would be better if the legends are "Home", "End" in left hand side, and "PageUp", "PageDown" in right hand side. It follows the standard Ergodox layout just like the other parts of this kit. And change the R2 "Control" in left hand side to be "Tab". Just like what's in the Ergodox kit of SA Carbon R2.
