Also relieved, but I guess this means we're probably not going to get these this month?

Looks like we're beyond prototype phase now.

If only the picture was bigger, I can't quite search for the Topre logos on the PCB!

USB. Integrated controller on the PCB. Not looking likely.

In that case I just wait a bit longer until someone designs a USB converter for a Teensy 3...

PBT Granite. So sweet, I posted a whole photo set. The most sublime caps I have ever even seen, let alone have!

hasu's TMK_firmware has a USB - to - USB converter code that you can use to reprogram it.

It doens't support LED, but the novatouch I saw doesn't have those anyway.

Yes. The NovaTouch, at least the prototype, is for some reason louder than regular Topre, so it seems optional o-rings will be included.

Yes. The NovaTouch, at least the prototype, is for some reason cheaper than regular Topre, so it seems multiple purchases will be available

should be sometime before end of this year, depending on the market, it took sometime for the irapide to reach most markets, heard in China it'll be in excess of 200 USD

Wishful thinking counts as a source, right? It sure does for Round 5!

Their website's broken. It won't let me type a description where it says to!

Ordered mine right when that link was posted, had no problems (us).
Can't wait, the keycap puller and case is very nice, but at ~$225 (tax+shipping) it would have been nice to toss in at least a double shot/pbt WASD in there... Considering swapping caps is the big deal with this board and its main selling point. O well still excited.

update: they took it off the site, must have been an error in putting it up so soon. They didn't forget to accept my money though :). After two days the order status is "awaiting fulfillment" so I am guessing I will have to wait still for a while :/.
Info: was priced at $199

Hi everyone,

Here an official statement on this regarding the listing on the USA cmstore. It was by mistake online a little earlier as supposed to be so was taken down already again.

As this shows we are indeed getting closer to launch but we are not there yet! For those early adopters who already purchased one on the cmstore-usa.com you will be contacted by the US CM Store representative soon.

For when it will come online again I cannot communicate a new date yet only that it will be soonish and it will be at the same time globally...

Thank you for the understanding and if you have any questions feel free to ask here or via a PM.

Regards,
- Bram

Don't be silly, rindorbrot...199 and 150 aren't the same number at all!

Thanks for letting us know here. Still looking forward to getting one when you guys finally finish it. Would appreciate getting your keyboard here in Australia. Sick and tired of always buying out of Korea or US when it comes to getting any thorpie keyboards.

Just glad there is another thorpie on the horizon willing to take SA profile key-caps :D .
