Yes would love this with the new saga green rama
You hit the nail on the head with this one, friend. Exactly what I was thinking!

Really nice looking set!
Maybe it should be clear already and I’m no realizing it, but could you translate the novelties? Wouldn‘t want to put those on a board without knowing at all what they mean..

Skipping keys that don't need translating:

R1: Power/Charge, Insert, Delete
R2: (same except with a blank)
R3: Newline
R4: Katakana, Hiragana, Katakana, Hiragana (they're two Japanese character sets so presumably it would be for switching between them)
R4: Alphanumeric (i.e., ASCII), Alphanumeric, Menu, Function, Function, Alphanumeric
R4: Alphanumeric, Alphanumeric, Katakana, Hiragana, Function, Menu (with Help written small in the corner)

If you check out the link from r/mk, where I got help with the translations, you can see where those keys are located in the original set

I'm all in on this, this is the true cyberpunk keyset if you think about it. This keyset fits in with the world of Blade Runner and Terminator more than GMK Laser does. Hopefully this thing comes out!

Love it. Easily my favorite set since Laser. Could you swap the HHKB backspace from an arrow to text, though? Having one cap be icon-only always bugs me. The spacebars kit could use four convex 1u caps for ortho too.

I like the neutral gray (more like 2B) of the first photo a lot more than CC color gray of the second.

Yeah, 2B is "cooler" and would match N9 better imo. On the other hand, BV is a warmer version of N9 and would pair nicely with CC.

Ref pic: I tossed a few other colors in for reference too. N6 might work for the yellow sublegends, but it's def not true to the original. AE looks like a good fit for the green pad printed legends.

My preference would also be for cooler tones. Brown gray is harder to match up nicely with non-black cases. Also, in the two pictures from OP to start off the IC, the first was a more color-accute capture of the Sony hardware and the second was clearly taken in warm lighting... The colors for these caps seems to have been taken from the over-warm photo. I don't think it needs to go all the way toward cool gray, but do agree 2B is preferable.

Any chance you do Hiragana legends on the mods in the darker color and not the orange color?

Looks awesome! Would be more like a display set but still. Also, the spacebar kit could offer much better compatibility for split spacebar boards by simply adding a 1.25u blank.

The keyset looks amazing, as a Dvorak-Ergodox user I might have to spend more than I'd like to, but for a set like this I'm 100% on board.

That would essentially make the set Dolch & use less inspiration from the Sony board though.

when is this happening? I need it :)

also: it needs 1.25U and 1.5U "NO" and "YES" keys in the novelty kit ;)

Missed this set when it was first proposed months ago. I like some of the proposed color changes to make it slightly different from just "weeb dolch," but maybe that's not a bad idea.

If this set is going to exist, I have thoughts on the ergodox kit:

1) If the mod color remains N9, you probably won't need to have (or be able to) this kit made. It already exists. Terminal's N9 ergodox kit has already had two rounds and there will be some in stock. They even come with Skidata orange accent keys.

2) While probably enormously expensive, it might be cool to see if it would be possible to get symbols or hirigana legends on the the ergodox mods. While not necessarily my jam, people seem to like the idea of somethingon their mods, like with Space Cadet's Assembly. It would be a cool way for this set to stand out from the existing N9 kit. Though, it might be cost prohibitive.
