Given some high profile challenges around some GBs recently, would you mind telling us at some stage a little about your experience running GBs, the QA process, manufacturer, financial ability to cove unexpected events, etc? not needed at this stage of course, but something to consider if this moves towards a GB.

Either OP is really good with rendering and graphic arts or the prototype already exists.  The board is shown with referenced Nantucket, Toxic (from China GB), 1965, and Chocaltier keysets.  OP already has a GB for HB85 running through Z Frontier so there's that too.

It would be interesting to note what firmware the OP plans for the PCB.
Hey, hey, thank you very much! I'll try to match some more key caps to take some photos later. But when it comes to firmware, I asked my partner, he is familiar with the firmware of bootmapper. So the great possibility is the firmware of this version. But I will try to convince him. I will also send a form to solicit  opinions.
I've been away on business these days. I can't edit it. It's only a few days' time.

Idk this thing triggers me a bit. If it is necessary, does it have to be white? 

It is mentioned in the OP that this is a mistake in the prototype - it is supposed to be engraved.

Oh missed that, so it's just an engrave of the same color of the case i guess?
Yes, I will proofread the same color version of logo and shell, and then compare the effect.

Wow, I love this design, your designs are always so interesting! :eek:

For my preference, I'd like to see plate & pcb that support split space 2.75-1.25-2.25.
I'd also prefer a qmk pcb. I hope there's a way to make those happen. I'd certainly buy!

For your proofing/testing, there is a spelling error on the red name plate. It says SPACC instead of SPACE :D

I'll be following this closely  :))
Thank you very much for your compliment! I'm sure I'll split the space, but with firmware, my partner still tends to boot mapper (which is actually easier to use), see if I can convince him. With regard to logo, I will proofread it again, and I will apologize for it. I will update the content at the first time.

Fantastic design. I always think AirPotter's keyboards are so interesting!

Only issue for me is I would love the PCB to be compatible with QMK!

Any chance of a QMK PCB option?
Thank you very much for liking my design! I will try to persuade my partner to use Qmk firmware, although now he still wants to stick to bootmapper.

red nameplate has spacc65

best looking board I've seen in a while, and very original. Kudos!
Ah, about the nameplate, that's a low-level mistake that shouldn't have been made. I'm sorry, but I'll get it back, finish the proofing, and update it as soon as possible!

I like this a lot. The branding is definitely too prominent for me with the white engravings, but if you can get them to look like the renders I think it would be acceptable. I'm thinking having both an LED indicator and cutout next to each other on the left hand side makes things a little busy and would prefer to see just one or the other.
Ah, thank you very much for the space65! Solid color version of the shell, I will complete the proofing as soon as possible. With regard to the indicator light, I would like to send out a form to ask geeks’ advice. Maybe I can make two versions: side lights and no side lights :).

Any idea about the price? Will the keeb have more color options? Thinking about dark green or purple

Also, for the little aluminium bar, its going to be any color or?
At the price, my initial calculation is 225 dollars. Excluding PayPal fees and express charges.
In color, I need to try with the factory to see if I can make more colors. Nameplates are also available for color selection.

I would prefer no etching or logos on top. I like the led strip on top of the board but don’t like the side one. Or as you said maybe one or the other. Shaping up to be a very nice board though!
Ah ha ha ha, if logo and shell a color, it would not be so obvious. I will update the photos then. And I'll send  a form for geeks‘ comments, or two versions directly: side lights and no side lights.

Well, thank you very much for your comments.
 I'll proofread a version of logo in the same color as the case.
 So that logo doesn't look so conspicuous.

I have to admit the red keyset with the red board accent looks really nice.

Suggestions for improvement:
The top stripe leds bleed their light towards the caps
QMK Support
More layout options (ISO, split space)
Thank you very much for your advice.
 Now, caps has a separate lamp, but it doesn't show up.
 ISO and splitting space I will update it as soon as possible. For firmware, my partner insists on bootmapper, so I need some time to convince him.

Yea same! I would prefer not to have side LED. Makes it look like a toy and not a premium board. However I think the name tag looks nice and fits with the overall design quite nicely!
Thks frist!
 Actually, the inspiration of  sidelights comes from the meaning of Voyager 1 to me.
It shines like a lighthouse.
So, although I will produce a version without side lights, but I really hope you like the version with side lights.

I really like the design but the branding is a bit much.

+1 for QMK.

What's the price point you're aiming for?
Well, I'll proofread a logo and case same color version. That would seem more calm and cool. The price should be set at 225 dollars(No PayPal fee and express fee).

Oof this board looks pretty fkin sick.
Thank you for your reply.
But  It seems SPACE65 is not suitable for you at all. :p

This person was in fact expressing their positive response to your keyboard project. In colloquial English, the word 'sick' can mean something is extremely favourable.

May I also say this keyboard is 'the $hit'. And by that I mean it is extremely impressive and I admire the unique nature of the design.

Good day, sir.
Oh, my God, I only now reflected how bad my English was. I need to improve my English (not just translation software). Thank you for liking Space65. I will update more content as soon as possible. I hope to have more communication with you. Thank you again!

My God! My English is so bad (most of the time I have to use translation software) that I misunderstood your meaning. I think the word "sick" is not good. It's ugly and sick. I'm very sorry to have misunderstood you.

No worries man! I understand haha. Anyway in this context "sick" means 很棒!

Would like to see taking out the Voyager 1 wording and the graphic on the bottom right corner (or you can engrave them on the nameplate?). And also wish not to have repeating Space65 wording. More colour options please.

Otherwise, a very good and refreshing effort from you.

I normally don't like excess bezels on a keyboard but this design makes it look really nice and the bezels aren't excessive!

I just want to know if there's a plan to use a black colored PCB and not the standard Green/Red?
It would pair really well with the carbon fibre plate and case color.

I think the design is great, and I'd like to request some small tweaks.
The side RGB window is looks neat - would it be possible to put one on the other side too?
I'd also prefer if the logo on the right were carved (and the same color as the case) rather than laser engraved.

I love this!

I really like the accent lighting as it is, although I agree that depth cutting for more subtle references to the Voyager mission would be better. I love the look of the different colored plates. I'm in for 1 already, I think! Between the HB85 and this, it looks like I'm going to be a collector of your work!

Wow, we got a hot one here! I'm loving this design & 65% is my favorite %! Definitely gonna be keeping an eye on this & hopefully grabbing one when it goes to GB! The only change I'd like to see is an option to add some feet or make the board sit on a sharper angle somehow. 5 degrees is a little to flat for my liking, other than that I love everything about this! :thumb:
