GB is opening!
https://en.zfrontier.com/collections/keyboards/products/gray-hb85

In March of this year, I released a post about  HB85 and oblivion. :)

More pictures of HB85:http://www.zfrontier.com/post/detail/9815?replyId=157809

And this is a separate update of HB85, so I made a separate HB85 post.

The first is about the layout of HB85.
202886-2
As shown, there are two versions(STT&Basic) to choose from :p.

Now,the CNC and anode oxidation proofing work has been completed.So I'll update some photos.
202866-3202868-4202870-5202872-6202874-7202876-8202878-9202880-10202882-11202884-12

The pictures show basic versions,and allnameplates are acrylic .

Finally, each set will be marked with two nameplates of acrylic and aluminum. :p

I will update the latest photos at any time.

【Update09.06】
After installing the key cap, I made a  bug. :eek:
On the main keyboard area and the numpadl area, the key cap is stagger in a row.
For instance,QWERTYUIOP is R2,but456 of numpad is R3.

Treatment method,I revised the structure design.Simple rendering
203073-21203075-22
Proofing will be completed as soon as possible, and then updated to here.
【Update09.16】
The latest proof case has arrived...
203620-23203622-24203624-25203626-26203628-27203630-28203632-29203634-30203636-31203638-32203640-33

【Update09.22】
PCB proofing!
204095-34
The bad news is that the USB port was designed wrong :-[(it was supposed to be under the PCB board, but now it was designed to be on top of the PCB).

The good news is that all the switch holes are all right.
 After changing the location of the USB port, there is no problem with the hole position.

Now wait for the new PCB proofing, then test the function.

Woah this is weird. But in a good way. I like the STT layout, the Basic layout looks asymmetrical. But others might like that aspect.

Well, honestly,the layout is a bit odd ...But because of that, it's also interesting :p.

And because of the existence of the arrow keys, I also like the little tiger teeth version more.

Sorry,dude...
Because of the limitation of case design, full NUMPAD area will break the integrity of the entire casedesign. so it can only be simplify. :-[

Yay, finally someone does a modern version of the Sony HitBit series (e.g. HB-101, HB-201)!!





Love it and looking forward to it!

P.S.: would love a pure 60% or HHKB version even more. Maybe some day ...

If this had a trackball where the numbpad is, similar to where the joystick/d-pad on the original HB-101 and 201, this would be my ultimate CAD workhorse. Either way, I am going to be following this! I would also love a HHKB version of this some day >:D

Hmm, that’s unfortunate about the sculpture mismatch, but certainly not the end of an awesome idea.  It looks amazing with keycaps on it.  There’s always uniform profile caps for people who might be bothered by it.   

I’m still hoping to see the stt layout too.

Great work going on here

Aha, in fact, this process is some painful to me :p.

Design, proofing. It was found that there were some problems in the key position, then redesigned and reproofed.

When PCB was proofed, the USB port was reversed (it should be under the PCB board, and the result became the upper part).

Fortunately, the hole position of PCB is no problem.

Finally, trust the process and enjoy the process. :D
