They are extremely light. I make a lot of mistakes while typing by just brushing my fingers along the caps, so I would advise either setting the actuation point deeper, so going for some stiffer springs. Other than that, and the lack of a numpad, it types very nicely :) . Thanks, I'll give it a go!...

That was nice timing - been considering the Wooting this weekend. Beyond it's smoothness, how does it feel for typing alone? Currently using a Novatouch, but getting a wee bit tired of the rattle, and I've gotten allergic to the ping from my MX Blue (but otherwise like both of them for entirely diff...

I've been lurking around for a Novatouch for a long time, but always wanted a different case - so this sound like something right up my alley! Will you have any preliminary renders to show?

I'm in Norway. There's probably some way of getting the UK VAT back when it's for export, but I'm guessing that would require lots of paper work, which probably doesn't make much sense for something like this (and possibly might only be possible if you're a business). The other option is to mark it ...

GBP 69 for a bare TKL seems a pretty great price! For those of us in Europe, but not in the EU - is there any way to avoid having to pay double VAT (first in the UK, and then in country of destination)?

I've got one MX Brown keyboard, and one blue - and the dilemmas you state still persist.

Been holding out till the end to see if the price would improve, but at USD85 for red alphas (ALPHAINT/RED + INTER/RED) I think I'll bail out on that one.

Could always jump over to black, but that's looking even worse : )

I've got HONEY/ALPHAINT/RED and HONEY/INTER/RED (on the endangered list) - if you decide to remove the later (or it becomes excessively expensive) will I be able to remove the first at that point?
One wouldn't be much use for me without the other.

- The 1.5 units *' key has been added because someone wanted it a very long time ago. I can throw it out if nobody uses DK, SE or NO layout on an ANSI-keyboard. I thought that was a brilliant move, didn't expect to be able to do Norwegian layout (apart from <>) on an ANSI board. I'd say, leave it in.

Just to reconfirm, best case scenario (if we reach 50+ orders), the ISO kit alone would end up at around $100 right?

I'd say that would be acceptable, even if it's a bit on the expensive side.
Optimally you might want to split them in two or something? But again, like you say, perhaps that will be just as expensive since we won't get enough volume.

Looks very nice - and the numpad seems to have dimensions that would make it fit nicely with normal TKL. Seems they went with a glossy surface on the numpad though, vs. the matte on the keyboard... but maybe that's a nice contrast.
