God the choices are so hard to make! I got the Astro Purp for my Novatouch, but I had forgotten I wanted the Retro Fridge to go with SA Jukebox. Now that I look at the Retro Fridge for this I just want it even more now, but I don't know how I feel about using SA profile on the Realforce. Regardless it looks like I'm going to fork out the money for one of these, but which one to get when they all look amazing?!!!

4 total. :)

9 to go to hit factory MOQ, so no worries there. If for some reason we didn't hit it, I would be happy to make up the gap.

I'll be in on this before the end, just can't decide on a color. Mainly going back and forth between tactile black, red, and purple... and to think, two days ago I didn't even want a topre board!

This is great stuff, sir. Keep up the good work  :thumb:

Will the red-wrinkle finish be as 'wrinkly' as in the ferrari pics, or more like the 'less-wrinkly' black you are offering? I really like that rough finish

It really depends on how it's lit, honestly. I'm using a finish that it literally designed to mimic the finish used on Ferraris, so it should have the same level of texture, but that can look quite different in different lighting environments. If it's lit from the side, it looks more textured. If lit with even diffuse light, it can look more uniform.

Thanks! The projects are all secretly just an excuse for me to play around with stuff like learning Premiere Pro, designing packaging, and such. It's a great way to structure having creative fun while simultaneously making something cool to share with friends. :)

As promised, here are a few pics of Astrophysical Purple





And Enigma Gray



Here compared with Enigma Black at left:


Note that each enigma color is itself only one color, no differently colored specks or flecks. Anything that looks like light flecks is just how the light plays off the texturally raised areas.

I tried to show the enigma grays at different exposure/lighting levels so you can see that in some cases it can look really dark, almost black, and in others more like a dark-to-medium gray.

That purple really does look amazing. Does anyone have the Photoshop skills to show off the black caps in the purple housing?

I honestly kind of regret buying the black board at the time, somehow the black caps don't seem to work with the custom housings as well as the white ones do. I considered going all black, but then I looked around the office and realized that while for me all black might be something different, pretty much everyone working on an old membrane keyboard has an all black keyboard... Switching caps is still an options of course, and I still have a bag of MX sliders somewhere, but the bottom row kind of held me back from changing them out thus far. Anyway, I think the purple might actually look relatively good with the original black caps.

Yes, the only person who has any of my cases in Monte Carlo red right now is pexon in the UK, and that was a Novatouch case.

I loved Venice Beach but got spooked because the Novatouch photo is more pepto bismol than Laser magenta, would love to see a photo of the venice beach sample.

As sexy as I think his cable is I am just going to get one from one of the many cable sellers, in a custom color to match my end-result board.

Might be interested in this too, for my current setup 1m is not long enough to reach my PC. Another option is getting a nice sleeved cable, but unfortunately Clark Kable (where I get most of my cables) doesnít sell these. Anybody know of any EU shops with sleeved USB-C cables?

Yes, the only reason I'm including a cable at all is because it's hard to find custom cable companies that have started offering USB C, and I didn't want folks to have to hunt around too much to find a decent-looking cable.

I trust the mass manufactured cables over the community's custom options. My first (and only) ~$35 cable I got from a custom cable seller was defective (they replaced it, but still...). I've yet to receive a defective "bargain-bin" cable from monoprice/amazon.

So yea, I liked the design of yours. That's why I asked if we can order more of them + different lengths. I assume it's not hand-made and that's a plus for me.

Yeah, totally. I don't think the factory making them for GB does individual sales, but here is a cable on Amazon that is at least very similar. Perhaps the same or a similar cable can be found in different lengths. I'll probably have some spares to offer in my shop after the GB is over if for some reason anybody needs one, but they'll all be the same 1m length.

Good evening,

just entered for a Tactical Black one and want to express that I'm very grateful to you norbauer to make this happen and fulfill one of my dreams!

My Realforce is very excited to get that new luxury and I've to take care she is going to stay calm for the next couple of months, which will be very hard.
She is going to look even more gorgeous than now  ;)

Which model realforce I need to buy for the winkeyless  option. Is there a guide to show how to insert the mx sliders? Thanks.

Really interested in the glossy singularity black. Do we have some sample pictures of it?

Good morning,

not much time to post now. Which RF: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=92667.msg2525565#msg2525565
Kind of guide as a starting point I've written for a friend of mine one year ago: https://www.massdrop.com/talk/963/don-t-shoot-me-i-m-only-the-piano-player?mode=guest_open 

Have a nice day, got to go now.

Here is a swatch picture of the color I think I'm going to use, but I don't have any full cases coated in it right now.



I decided on a fairly high gloss option for this, since we already have a good matte black finish in the form of the hard anodizing.

This option was a last-minute addition at the request of a GB participant, so I likely won't have any samples of a cases coated in it before the GB ends.

This is completely off topic.

Have you considered making a HHKB case? I would love to see a premium case like this be an option for HHKB users.
