I love my Unigo66 and can't wait for the Uni660  :thumb:

Will it be easier to deal with battery changes in the Uni660 though?  My only complaint with the Unigo66 is that I worry about stripping the tiny hex screws esp bc I have to change the CR2032's every month or so.
You need to open case to change batt, but the batt can be used 1 year at least by design purpose, so I think its not a problem of changing batt.

And we use 2*AAA batt for 1 hand this time.

Nice, glad you went with AAA.  Will the screws be more robust too?
Its OK just be careful when you screw it, do not push too hardly.

I guess it isn't a problem with 1 year battery life.  The Unigo66 has served me well and I'm really looking forward to the Unig660  :thumb:

Sorry for the long wait, this has been ongoing

Prototype batch in China done, GB likely coming in June! Sirius will work with a few vendors on the GB.

The layout is nice, but the fact that it's wireless and not Bluetooth kills it for me.
thank you for coming to my ted talk

Excellent!!! It was hard to tell scrolling through this thread whether it was going to be supported. 

Can somebody elaborate on what exactly "button battery' means here? Is that just the battery to drive wireless mode?

some of the description are outdated, irrc the board uses 2 triples A batteries each on both hands.

Sirius said batteries last for 2000 hours of continued use. That would amount to a little bit more than 83 days of straight up typing.

Just got pointed to this from this post on the VEA and I think this keyboard is super cool! Really love the Option D layout especially — I'd be thrilled to have four modifier keys to the left of the spacebar, though I guess this is a pretty unpopular opinion based on the layout poll haha.

oldcat, I think it'd be worth updating the dates in the OP to include the year somewhere for people like me who find it late. When I first looked this IC thread up I wasn't sure it was the right one because the post date was February 2019 and it just says "June". Love the board though. :)

Will update more details as the official vendors are worked out by Sirius, and I will ask him to personally update more often. Last I heard GB will be late May/early June.

Again, this is another IC/GB I merely help out by doing the translations. I will not be involved in any capacity with the Group Buy process, which will be handled by vendors Sirius work with.

Looks great.  I feel like the left half should be 1U wider to make tenting symmetrical.

Sirius has confirmed that for the first batch of ready-to-ship stocks, the only vendor will be ilumkb.com! Feel free to reach out to Louis if you have questions regarding the GB format. I heard only 50 sets available.

There will be future GB-type runs at other vendors, which are not confirmed yet.

I love that the L Space shares a left border with C for better Mac like ⌘. I’ll bite. Where do I sign up?

Dumb question, but can we use the keyboard like a wired keyboard, or is it only for charging?

Current battery life time estimates would give you a lot of time before changing the batteries.
