I believe it was cancelled unless there is another 40% PCB that I'm thinking about.

Yo guys!

Yeah, we decided to halt the GB due to some shenanigans with OLKB buuuuut this will still come and with some updates:D

The GB will happen, and we (me and Steve) will open a GB this month,  we are not sure yet because the prototype for our custom case was a tad bit delayed.

I'll post here when it happens!

I am supper excited that this is back in the works!! Will we get notices when the GB goes live?

Yeah, of course! We are making yet another IC thread for the Shark, now containing kits with alu plates, alu case and a budget kit with FR4 base and switch plate!

Yes! Those are still being made

Haha thanks man, I appreciate

By the way guys, the case prototype is being 3D printed as we speak

Hey! I'm still working on some fancy case designs but am working off the v3.1.1 step file you uploaded for me way back. Would you be willing to add a .step of PCB+components for the final design?

This gets better with each iteration. Very cool.

One dream I still have (and I don't have the electronics experience) would be build-in BLE. Definitely not KISS, but maybe somebody with the knowledge could pick this up. :) I know about the Morgan40, but would love to have a Planck case compatible PCB.

Hey! Thanks for your words.

Problem here is that as far as I know, QMK presently does not currently support bluetooth in the ARM platform. Should be doable though, as the remaining pins were borken out for expansion!

Are there any plans to create a 5-row version (i.e., WhalePCB)?

Yes. It's already in prototyping version and it's called Anubis. See https://gondolindrim.github.io/AcheronDocs/anubis/intro.html for some info. I'll release everything I have once it's prototyped.

It will be the PCB of an upcoming GB also.
