[IC]- Military weapon keyboard X-MB 64
« on: Sun, 12 April 2020, 11:21:34 »
Hello everyone,
 Wishing everyone at home safe and healthy.
 I am an individual creator, I have created my own products but only for myself, I have never sold them out. But this time, my friends recommended to sell a certain amount, because they enjoyed it.
 I will IC to see if people really like it, to know that I can create a minimum number of orders (because the cost of testing with materials is very expensive, and also very difficult in this moment - COVID, as you know)
Information: military keyboard
function 1: keyboard
Function 2: tactical box is used to show keycap
function 3: protect keycap, defense weapons <<< :)))))
function 4: fashion accessory, you can wear it as an item when going out. I can be sure of that.
Design:
layout: I haven't made a final decision on the layout yet, but I'm experimenting with at least 4 layouts and being supported by another maker. My goal is to have bluetooth and C type cable. PCB has led background and led roar.
Material: including 2 parts is body and protective corners, I am ordering to test 2 types of material are acrylic and aluminum. (The version I have is 3D printing for testing). protective corners will be made of rubber for antishock(it can be removed)
Colors: I haven't decided on a color yet, but if it's aluminum, it'll be navy, camo. If it's acrylic, there's only one transparent color.
 The angle of the case will change when you remove protective corners.

Cool idea, handy for transporting around job sites (when thatís a thing again).
Very keen on 65% + Bluetooth + USB C.
Are you planning on it being programmable? Hotswap switch mounts?
Nice!
Model M Industrial, SSK, Unicomp 104, Code TKL MX Green, FC660M MX Green + Clear + White + Grey, FC660C Topre 45g, MagicForce 68 USB and Bluetooth, Whitefox, some optical switch 65% Bluetooth split spacebar thing ... wait, I think I need an intervention. Too late, thereís a couple of new Model Fs on the way.
Too much SA is never enough.

I can def. see the appeal of this while in certain environments.


Is the PCB mounted to the bottom with standoffs (tray-mount)?

"Military weapon" part can be taken out of the title.
Can you show a typing test? The front ledge of the case looks like it would interfere with typing.
Will this be CNC'd, injection molded, or 3D printed?
If you really intend to hang it by the ring, it looks like a weak point to be hanging a moving object off of. Might want to have it on a swiveling/freely rotating mounting point that's reinforced.

I love the concept of a beefed up case that can withstand beating. I hope you can streamline it a bit more.
