Back in mid-February I shared my design for a 28-key keyboard, naming it Alpha. After a lot of positive feedback and a few modifications, I improved my design, and then spent "too long" learning PCB design. I finally finished and feel satisfied with my design, and also have learned lots about being a first-time vendor along the way. Today I'm finally opening the public group buy!
The group buy will be open for roughly 3 weeks. It will close on Friday, May 11th.
Here is /u/AuthenticDanger's great prototype build! Your build will probably have a top/bottom plate from the amazing JOlimon! Unless you buy a case for it sometime down the line (though there will be no other options for this GB, my designs will be open-sourced and I plan to run the aluminum case that I shared previously over the summer when I have more time!)
The price of a kit is only $24 USD ($27 with an RGB strip)+shipping. Here is a breakdown of the parts of the kit so you don't have to flip through that pesky Google Form.
Shipping is a flat fee of $8 CONUS and more ($15?) elsewhere. This will be added to your order when you receive the invoice.
I will have limited to no internet access from April 23rd to April 30th, but I will make sure to respond to everything I miss when I get back.
This group buy does not include switches or keycaps.
Without further ado:
Thank you so much for your support <3
POST-DAY 1 EDIT: you guys are amazing, we're currently sitting at over 70% of the amount of orders I had estimated. Let's see how high we can get this!
