[GB] SPACE65 | 65% Custom Keyboard(GB END)
« on: Sun, 30 December 2018, 03:19:03 »
Thank you for all your interest in and support for space65.
It is a keyboard I hold dear in my heart and spent lots of time on, and Iím so happy this GB is a success and we are able to bring premium boards at an affordable price to our friends.
We have received a total of 309 orders, and currently 309invoices were sent and 257 have paid.
Please kindly make the payment as soon as possible so we can get started with payment to factory and production.
 For this GB, to move fast with the targeted shipping time, we will allow 3 days for you to make final changes to your color and other specifications.
After that, colors and specifications cannot be changed.
Further, we will collect shipping cost right before we ship out, and address changes can be made at that time.
If no address change request is made, we will ship to the PayPal address on the invoice.
Again, thank you so much and Go Space65!

Please kindly fill out the GB Form: https://goo.gl/forms/PJiEBYWQNiR4lHzF2

SPACE65 was inspired by two things significant to me that happened in 1977: the Space Probe Voyager 1 and the Personal Computer Apple II.

It has been almost a year as I work on this Space65 project.
 Although the front-end side has been designed since the beginning (after all, Apple II was the inspiration), lots of details have changed and been finetuned.

In order to make the bottom feel like Voyager 1, to resemble the airless and emptiness in the space...
I have been deliberating on the bottom design, with the objective that Space65 looks concise and integrated, removing the weight and blocking the screw position.

Fortunately, the final result is nearly perfect (after all, perfection is always the next time), and I feel very proud of this product.

To put things into perspective, when I was young, my father showed me a picture of the famous "Dark Blue Spot" taken by Voyager 1, 6.4 billion kilometers away from the earth.
I recall, it was a really small picture.
I was so young then, and tried to find the earth for a long time, until he said, "You see, this little dot is actually the earth."

Fast forward more than 20 years, now I have grown up, every time tried to catch that moment in my memory lane, I tremble, thinking that how little the earth is, and how little we are.
Now I can understand that the earth was as small as a speckle of dust in the universe, I am more impressed by the perseverance and bravery of Voyager 1.
To pay tribute to Voyager 1, I designed an RGB light band on the left side of Space65.
When the power is switched on, it will shine in that inconspicuous position, like the sparkle of Voyager 1.


【PS: Whenever I turn on Roger Zelaznyís science fiction "For a Breath I Tarry," I instantly think of Voyager 1. I would aspiringly hope that she will become a human being by exploring and learning, just like Frost, the protagonist in the book.】


Those are my personal stories that inspired the concept and design of Space65. Let's take a look at it now.

If we opt not to have the RGB strip on the side, is the bottom that we get solid, or is the hole just covered with an insert or something?

In that case, it's just a simple upper and lower cover structure. There will be no holes in the side.

Hand polishing is really too tired. And the scrap rate is so high that it's impossible to mass produce.Sorry for that...

They will be like the ladder option you mentioned. They are cut into the frame as opposed to etched like the initial prototype.

Wondering the same thing. It's the only thing missing for full ISO support, since it already supports ISO enter. Would be an insta-buy if split left shift was supported.

Same here, going by the plate design, the keyboard doesn't look like it supports split left shift from the prototype pictures.

They would have to modify the plate and the PCB designs to accommodate this if they were to fit it in, maybe that's all been finalised.

PCB supports split left shift.
At that time, I wanted to make a split left shift. But my partners don't think it's necessary. So I thought he didn't do it. As a result, I just opened the picture to see that it supports split left shift. But he's done it.

Well, there is no support for split left shift. Sorry for that.. :(

Without the split left shift you might as-well only do a ANSI layout as the majority of ISO users would need a split left shift.
So most likely no one from the EU etc would not be able to join :(

No split left shift?

No split left shift?

Wondering the same thing. It's the only thing missing for full ISO support, since it already supports ISO enter. Would be an insta-buy if split left shift was supported.

Same here, going by the plate design, the keyboard doesn't look like it supports split left shift from the prototype pictures.

They would have to modify the plate and the PCB designs to accommodate this if they were to fit it in, maybe that's all been finalised.

PCB supports split left shift.
At that time, I wanted to make a split left shift. But my partners don't think it's necessary. So I thought he didn't do it. As a result, I just opened the picture to see that it supports split left shift. But he's done it.

Ok great, the pcb supports it. I guess it will but can you confirm that the plate will also support it?

Without the split left shift you might as-well only do a ANSI layout as the majority of ISO users would need a split left shift.
So most likely no one from the EU etc would not be able to join :(

Yeah, I thought the same as well. It was so close to getting a full proper ANSI plate for once :(

I feel yah, So close to getting a awesome 65% ISO keeb at this great pricepoint ;) :p

Haha or that yeah. But it is a missed opportunity for both side sadly.
Though it's a minor detail I guess (at least for me now that I'm used to ANSI).

Edit: or not, it seems ISO support has been fixed on the plate, cheers for you then and all ISO users ;)

If this image shows the final plate, I don't think the plate supports it: https://i.imgur.com/iH2L6IA.jpg
The hole needs to be a bit bigger on the right hand side, like this plate: https://imgur.com/a/6UVqnw2 (image borrowed from here)

But this is just a minor edit of the plate, so I hope it might be possible to add this change.

EDIT: Here's an image of a sample carbon fiber plate I found in the album, which seems to have the same cutout for the left shift (which doesn't support ISO shift): https://i.imgur.com/okCKcro.jpg
