GB Now Closed for orders! We will be starting on production arrangements this week!

Thank you all for your support in this awesome opportunity of a GB!

Stay tuned for updates here!




UPDATE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST



Hello Geekhack!

We at Greenwald Designs are thrilled to announce: The Lumina Group Buy is now open!



It has been a while since our last update, and for good reason. We have refined the design, secured the best manufacturer, and achieved our goal to provide you with the best combination of features, innovation, and price.



The 100% Made in the USA Lumina is now ready to be ordered, and will remain open until Monday, August 27th, 2018.



Visit our online store: https://www.luminakb.com/ to view all the  options for materials and colors! We offer set kits: https://www.luminakb.com/kits-1, as well as a Build-Your-Own: https://www.luminakb.com/parts-1 tool.



A lot has changed in the last couple of months, so here are all the updated details for the Lumina 60% Keyboard:

 - 7 degree angle through the use of aluminum or brass base pieces
 - 6 color options for anodized aluminum plates and bases (Clear, Blue, Purple, Black, Red, Rose Gold)
 - 7 color options for acrylic plates (Clear, Blue, Purple, Black, Red, Frosted, White)
 - 4 corian colors (Cameo White, Deep Black Quartz, Red Hot, Elderberry)
 - HHKB top piece option, as well as standard 60% top piece option
 - Plates support Alps switches, as well as a plethora of layouts.
 - Plate files are open sourced. We will be posting the files soon.
 - The Lumina supports all standard 60% pcb on the market with the exception of hotswap pcbs.
 - The option of the waldo pcb, made by /u/that-canadian , with some awesome layouts and features.



The Groupbuy will be open for 2 weeks, and once it ends, we will place the order for production. Production time, depending on sales, will range from 2 to 3 months.




Shipping is flat rate in the US and Canada:

 - US: $30
 - Canada: $40,

EU shipping costs will be determined by volume and proxy services with Mechboards.co.uk.

Shipping to all other countries will be set and invoiced separately on a case by case basis. If this applies to you, please reach out to us.



The GB Site is Luminakb.com, please come and take a look at our options and offerings. Note: Site may not work properly if accessed via VPN.

Additionally, if you want to see some builds and here how it sounds, come take a listen to /u/feelghoodmuzik type on the Brass Lumina with 4 different switch types.

Let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for reading!


Big thanks to /u/FeelgHoodMuzik for the amazing typing tests and photos, u/packman86 and u/plexabyte for the stunning renders featured on the site, and all those friends and supporters who helped make our dream of the Lumina a reality!




 Some more renders in case you didn't get to see them on the site: https://imgur.com/a/O1ppM9H[/img




Update:

We have some exciting updates for you on the Lumina GB!


____

We now have an Acrylic base option for the Lumina on our website: https://www.luminakb.com/. It comes in all the same colors as the acrylic plates that we offer, and we also have included aluminum cone feet to boot. Now you can get a flat angle, as well as the original 7 Degree angle, like the other angled bases.
________

Additionally, with the use of Frosted or Clear acrylic, RGB underglow compatibility has now been added to the Lumina.
_________


Come on over and build your own kit: https://www.luminakb.com/parts-1 while we work on putting together some premade kits!

_____

Some Renders: https://imgur.com/a/9v8dTo5 that have been added to the master render album: https://imgur.com/a/O1ppM9H



______

Additionally, one person, /u/rainb0wbac0n on reddit, has talked to us about a special color, Cosmos Prima, which is not currently being offered. We did confirm that if an MOQ of 25 units were to be reached, we would be able to run it at the same price point as the Cameo White and similarly priced options. This color option is the same as in these renders: https://imgur.com/a/9v8dTo5 by /u/plexabyte.

If you are interested in this colorway, please feel free to fill out this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfotfSZhsGtk8oJQWIZqdOC4BYVSn7-n5He1qbR0ZGwjAOMzQ/viewform and Let us know!

________

Just a reminder, the Lumina GB will be closing August 27th, 2018, so you have 11 more days to get your order in!

___

Let us know if you have any questions!



Update:




Hello all!


Today was scheduled to be the last day to place orders for the Lumina keyboard. We were planning on closing the sales, and placing the order. However, we have received quite a considerable amount of messages from members of the community, concerning extensions on the GB period. We want to provide anyone who wants a Lumina with the time to order one, so we have decided to fulfill your requests!

We are extending the GB by another week! The new final date for the Lumina GB is now September 3rd, 2018.

Additionally, Cosmos Prima is now available on the store to be purchased by anyone! Cosmos Prima example
It will be available in the Build Your Own section of the store, when you choose the corian color for your top and bottom corian pieces.

The Acrylic Base option is on the store in the Build your Own kit section, and we have also put up a premade kit as an example of one of the many variations you can come up with in the Build-Your-Own section of the website.

_

The Acrylic base is an option that not only reduces weight, for those of you who do not want a 7 pound board to lug around, but it also reduces the prices. The addition of the acrylic base brings the price range low to $231 with an acrylic plate chosen. Come over and check out all the different color combinations you can come up with, and see how it affects the pricing!

While we are extending the GB another week, we will also be taking the time to keep working on getting the best international pricing for shipping. Bear with us as we work on getting those numbers, and once we do we will post them in the next GB update!

Make sure to get your orders in by then, and let us know if you have any questions!

Here are some images of Gmk Stormtrooper on a Cameo White Lumina

UPDATE SEPTEMBER 2nd:



Hello all!

Just a reminder, tomorrow, September 3rd, at 11:59pm EST, we will officially close the GB, and start production of the Lumina orders.

Additionally we have prices for shipping for EU as well as AU.

Because of the variance in weight for the different bases, there are many variables. The prices of shipping reflect this, so if you have questions about shipping for a certain selection of kits/bases, please do message us, and we will give you a personalized estimate.

Some more pictures of the Lumina, this time with GMK Oblivion: https://imgur.com/a/xVmudDf


As usual, let us know if you have any questions, and thank you for all your support!


Just to reiterate, website is Luminakb.com




https://imgur.com/a/7T6GHGK





if you for some reason did not make it into the allotted time to order, and you really wanted to, please do let us know, we will potentially be able to accommodate!

Couldn’t agree more. I don’t think I’ve purchased a keyboard so fast as I did the Lumina. Elderberry come to papa!

The way we have it planned out is you can order from our site, and choose the international option. Once we get final numbers, we will invoice each person based on cost we get from shipping a batch to the EU and dividing it up into the number of orders. Currently we are working with David over at Mechboards.co.uk on that.

Sound good to me!
Please put it somewhere, as I've met such solution for the first time ;)

btw have you noticed that all EU proxies are done by a nice guy named David? (Mechboards.co.uk/mykeyboard.eu/candykeys.com)

The board might support khail hotswap, but just to not give false hope, I have not confirmed it, because we have not been able to test it. As far as clearance issues go, it should be working fine.

Is it possible to change my order? I replied to my confirmation (luminakb@gmail.com) but haven't heard anything back.

Love this board, happy it's finally coming to life!

Also -- just to confirm, the black will have speckles like in the color sample, right? They're not visible in the render, so just checking.

As far as the texture, yes, it does have the speckles.

So a built Brass bottom kit will range from 6 to 7 Pounds or so

An Aluminum will be between 3 and 4 pounds.

The acrylic base will be between 1 and 2 pounds.

If you want a point of reference, the Fjell weighs around 5 pounds or so.

We are currently working on shipping quotes for Australia, since there seem to be quite a few people interested. We want to see if we can bundle some orders together to be able to reduce the cost per person.

So far we have quite a few people in the EU interested in the board, so it should not be too bad when we ship all the orders together.

I have a small question. I bought the « Elderberry Brass », as far as I understand it come with a brass plate too ? Not only brass base? So this brass plate is reserved to every full « brass » kit?

If you bought one of the premade kits and it was brass, it will come with the brass plate as well as the brass base. You can pick and choose all your parts in the build your own section, so there is no limit to the various parts you can get or the combination of parts. The premade kits are there so that if people are not confident enough to pick their own kit parts, they have something to fall back on.

This is incredibly beautiful and elegant. Any plans to make a 65% version?


Thank you!


We do plan to do a 65% but that will not be some time til mid of next year, well after this one finishes.

Are you looking to do a 65% similar in layout to the M65-A? I don't think I can budget this GB unfortunately but I would be very very interested in saving up for a 65% version of this. These are absolutely beautiful and I am heartbroken I can't afford one during the GB window.

Thank you for your support! We absolutely plan on doing a 65%, but it will be a bit before we launch that, as well have to finish the Lumina GB, as well as another layout before we get to the 65%

Oooh, do tell :) And I'd be totally in for a 65% as well as long as the arrow-key blocker is an option.

In the meantime, still trying to decide between white and elderberry for this run...

Hahah yeah those two would be the top choices for sure. I guess it all depends on the keyset you plan to put on the build.

How are the sales in Europe looking, any indication how much extra shipping/import costs will be added yet?

What I know from the GB owner(s), they are going to ship keebs to UK. Then they will ship to buyers.
I have not found any information about shipping costs, it was always free.
