[IC] EnjoyPBT Extended 2048
« on: Mon, 04 March 2019, 14:04:40 »


Hey!

After putting this design on hold for a while I finally present you EPBT Extended 2048!

Heavily inspired by the AEKII, the main idea was to create an icon based keyset with a neo-retro look, inspired by old Apple keyboards. I wanted to have something with a minimalistic but intuitive look, which explains the icons mods!

I took time to re-think the kits, get rid of the useless stuff and basically made it simpler.
The original IC can be found here

Group Buy should start end march through KBDFans and CandyKeys (For EU only).
Pricing will come really soon!

I'm also actually working on a prototype.

I love the fact that there is at least one 1u novelty for each row. Adds so much compatibility for us 65% users!
Thank you biip!

EPBT is Cherry, like GMK.

Basically this is the PBT version of cherry profile, and epbt is arguably the best in PBT cherry profile quality.

While I think the epbt9009 was not the best, I think the quality has been improving. The heavy industry was quite impressive.
I hope they keep increasing quality without increasing the price. haha

Whoa! This set looks amazing.

Pardon me for my ignorance, but is there any perks to doing a set with ePBT rather than GMK? I am wondering because lately I have bought a full set of topre 9009 from ePBT, and even tho they looked amazing and were thick, the plastic mixture used for the caps produced a really high pitch sound and felt cheap compared to the sound of standard Topre caps, Leopold Caps or OG cherrys, GMK, etc..

I was let down and I'm surprised to see many people doing runs for high end caps through them. Does that mean that only this topre 9009 was a bit of a let down and their GB productions are great?

Thanks!

I think the upsides are that:
1. its cheaper than GMK
2. some prefer PBT
3. custom fonts

I have a few epbt cap sets myself. And I have the same feeling as you do, but I hope epbt will increase quality without increase pricing.

Some of the symbols are a little weird in my eyes.
• Backspace (Backward "delete") has the Back-Tab symbol.
• Shift has a Cursor-Up symbol in my opinion.
• Forward Delete has what I think of ASCII art for fish <><

What would be so wrong about the "Place of interest" symbol?

And BTW, what are the shell prompt keys for?

2. some prefer PBT
AEK, AEKII, M0116 and M0118 were PBT, except for the space bars.
