What's the deal here? I'm guessing those random metal parts anodising samples? Do you have any more pics of the completed board? Does it take a standard 60% PCB?

Yes, these are samples and the purple one is the final sample. I haven't built that one yet since it's being given to a friend of mine to build it on stream. It does support any standard 60% pcb.

In the original IC thread, you showed a sample of available colors. Is this buy limited to the four on the GB form, or can I pick from the color swatches you showed in the IC thread?

So far we have only 5 spots sold. But after talking to the factory I have until mid to late February to sell all the spots. I will keep promoting it over reddit and any other ways that I can. A buddy of mine just built his that I sent to him and his picture should be up very soon.

Just found you on here too, asked you a few questions over on reddit posts...  I'm close to pulling the trigger on this.

Can you show an image of the back where the USB cable plugs in? also a picture of what the inside of the anode looks like? Does the PCB mount to the bottom? I'm planning on doing hot-swap switches and read that plate-mount only isn't the best for that. Will it support USB-C cables? I have lots of questions because I'm new to this, and I've learned that there is wisdom in asking as much as possible before buying.  I've already made a few mistakes in layout etc...  :-[

Was thinking that the purple would look nice with GMK Plum and/or GMK Hyperfuse Remix

Thanks

You can just fill another form and I can combine it manually. It will just be +$10 more. So if you're in the US it will be $40 to ship both.

We are getting closer but I still need to sell more spots. Were at 7 spots sold so far but I will buy the rest if we don't make it since I will make this GB happen.

Trying to get a friend on board to get another case together and save bit of shipping; hasn't panned out yet  :(  I'm being as persuasive as I can...

Question:  Is the Red Wine case color similar to the red keys that come with GMK Plum?  Or would it at least compliment that set well?

The gmk plum is a bit different compared to the wine red, so i would not try to match them.
Gmk burgundy/dolch R01 should be a better match.

Actually I think a bit more thought could go into publicity (edit the OP):
What are your inspiration when it comes to the case design?
What are some real life shots / renders of the color options of the full keyboard not shown?
You mentioned you found 2 great anodizing shops, what are your experiences / judgements on why you think they make great anodizing?
What trademark features does the case have? (Can be an elaboration of the specs)
I think we would also appreciate more sound tests at a high quality audio and video!

Update: Chinese New Year is finally over and spots are still available. Estimated time frame of getting the cases anodized and shipped is late March or early April. All cases have already been made. Due to some reasons I plan on leaving the hobby right after the GB so I just want to sell all the spots and don't really want to make money and just sell all the boards. The price is set to $230 including pp fees.

So for anyone interested in how everything screws in or looks taken apart here are some pictures. The weight screws in to the bottom, the plate screws in to the top piece and the bottom and top piece screw in together.

Also here are some pictures of the cases already made and just ready to be anodized by the shop.
