Update
18th Jan.********
  • Change the R3 height of NON-STANDARD from 1U "FN" to 1.25
  • Recently, the purchase link has been published. Thank you for your support.
31th Dec.********
  • Received proofing color individual key, due to the level of photography and lighting conditions slightly evil, can only compromise to see;
    The degree of reduction of the novel key is OK;
    In terms of color, the blue color is a little bit darker, so I'm going to keep mixing. :)
23th Dec.********
  • Layout fine-tuning update adds some purple return.
  • In terms of production, samples of personality keys have been made and waiting for color samples to be sent to me.
  • The GB is expected to be before the 5th of Feb.
11th Oct.********
  • 1. New group purchase mode
    Complete the production of the sample before starting the group (the production period of the sample is about 45 days), start the production immediately, save the waiting time after payment, and reduce the probability of rollover;
    This group purchase is a group purchase with Maxkey at most kit, which is sold according to kit.
    Since the keys are all different, the packaging can only provide plastic bags.
  • 2. Adjustment of novel bond: adjustment of the rocket pattern.
11th Sept.********
  • All layouts are adjusted.
  • Will make by Maxkey.
  • Add ‘Minila’, ‘660’, ‘full short space bar(Among them, 2.25u, 2.75u, 2u, 1.75u are sink space bar)’, ‘40%’layout,etc...See the layout for images
  • Delete some 1.5u novelty key.
15th Jul.********
  • Add Ergo kit.
27th Jun.********
  • New layout for SP.
4th Jun.********
  • Novelty kits add a yellow return.
  • Modifiers kits add a R1 1u purple '~'
  • Considering the identification, whether the novel keys of R1 are needed. If the number of requests is large, it will be added again, and there will be a total of 12 patterns
             



About
Inspiration comes from Stephen Hawking's prediction.Salute the great man. :thumb:
The design continues to be updated.



Details
  • Doubleshot ABS
  • SA profile (1-1-2-3-4-3)
  • Designed by York Chan



Q/A
Q:Why not SP SA ?
A:I can lower the time cost(communication, transportation,etc...) and the final price with Maxkey. And I also believe that Maxkey can do a great job. If the number of requests is large, I will choose SP to make this.

Q:Three layout for novel key?
A:You can either offer me a proposal or a recombination to choose one of them as the final general layout.

At this point I'm feeling like this doesn't even warrant the question anymore; it gets asked in nearly every MaxKey IC and the answer is always the same.

Set looks real nice, York Chan.

Thank you very much.First,I am Chinese, so I can lower the cost(communication, transportation,etc...) and lower the price. I also believe that MAXKEY can do a great job.If you only want to buy novel keys, I will consider SP to make it.

Don't think Calm Depth's waiting time is comparable. It had disqualified color samples at first time. We should compare the waiting time of Maxkey to Berserk or Flamingo.

Historically, a GB of longer than 5 months is not common for Maxkey, but it's common for SP.

Love the colorway & font!
Thanks for taking the time to design this.

*Pls consider option with control/ctrl to use instead of normal-or-stepped shiftlock!*

In which case, maybe a Super, Meta or Hyper key to use instead of existing bottom-row Control -- though considering further, I'd probably just go with a novelty mod in place of the usual left-ctrl position anyway...


Also an option with purple  `~  and  \|  would be nice-to-have.

-----
Some may like option for purple F5-F8 _(or blue F1-F4 & F9-F12)_
Probably too much to split the 3 F-groups into separate colour options for F1-F4 / F5-F8 / F9-F12, I guess?

Having said that, I'm not a big fan of the F-row anyway :-)
I go months without touching an F-key. Though to digress, I'd love a design with the old Sun type-3 keyboard's L1-L10  ;-)

Hey man this looks great. It’s awesome to see such a nice colourway on maxkeys!

Could I suggest a couple thing couple things to make it more friendly to 65% users and dz60? As it currently stands I can’t see how to have split left shift and right arrow cluster even if you buy the base and then the mods extension: I might have missed it but i  see one r4 1u in the set and no r4 1.25u. Is there any chance maybe of making some of the r3 1u novelties into r4? Perhaps some blank r4 1u and 1.25u keys?

Congrats on a great looking set, hope it goes big!

AFAIK Maxkey does not have the legends for a few of those keys, but IMO they should probably invest in better compatabilty

really like this set. suggestion: making enough novelty r1 keys to stripe the number row in purple. right now the novelty kits only have a r1 set for yellow keys (which are nice too) but it'd be cool to have enough in both yellow and purple to stripe that row.

with r1 novelties you can use them for the f row or the num row. with r3 novelties you can use them for the homing row and the bottom row but especially the bottom row since most of the r3 novelties are 1.25u. i prefer the former but maybe others have a different opinion.

I'm sorry this feels way to similar to GMK Iris, with different novelties and an every-so-slightly lighter tone. I do love my Iris, maybe a courtesy contact with Iris' designer for a similar colorway but different novelties and profile?

I disagree. You are underestimating how much difference in tone and saturation can make. The intensity of the colors in Iris gives it an overall aestethic that is vastly different than 2600.

To me, they look nothing alike. When I first saw it I thought of Godspeed night wih accents. Which is in the pastel realm of colorways. Iris gives me complete opposite vibes.

If so. How about Carbon and 1965?Not to mention the height difference between Iris and 2600.And I didn't draw on Iris from my ideas.

There are now more than 13 patterns, But it would be much more expensive to do it all.
