Oh wow, interesting stuff! Thanks Ellipse!

Honestly surprised the black cases are the least popular. :O

What is "Scumyc ANSI Enter"?

(Also, I noticed I'm not the only nutjob who's going for an 1.25U Enter key! Yay!)

I honestly feel so lucky that layouts do not matter to me... I enjoy using weird layouts! :D

Interesting figures.

Nordic per capita over representation, as always and on everything.
Despite danes slacking seriously.
Swedish-finnish as most popular non-english option is rather insane.

@Ellipse, any news on how production goes? Updating everyday to see if there is some news from you. :-)

Been away for a while. Apologies if this has been discussed. (I did perform a quick scan.)

Would this device be of use in converting the new Model Fs to Bluetooth?

What I don’t understand about electrical circuits could fill a book, I’m afraid.

Thanks for the advice!

@NilesLinus

TMK is used often as a converter, so it also should be possible with QMK, which supports the Bluefruit. But I'm not sure if QMK currently supports converter and Bluetooth.

@Ellipse: are there any updates on manufacturing and dye sub so far? Really looking forward to hear more about it.

I’d love a video. I’ve never seen it done.

Nice job Zed!

But I notice that the "HHKB Front Print" set is missing one key. A replacement for the Enter key which has the top legend "Return" and the front legend "Enter". The HHKB keyboard will output different keycodes for Enter and Return. See https://hhkeyboard.us/wp-content/upload ... yout-1.pdf page 2 for reference.

I am also wondering how to order these and the price. Are the keys ordered as sets or individually?

Would it be possible to order only front-legends for Backspace, Left, Right, Up, Down, PgUp, PgDn, Home, End, Ins, Del, Pause, ScrLck (excluding the keys for the "HHKB Ext. Lite" mode)?

Thanks! Unfortunately, we are not able to do front printing on a 'Return' sized key. There isn't enough room on the templates for another 2.25U key and as I understand how Ellipse has setup the printing jig, 1.5U is the largest size that can front printed anyway.

I believe that the regular HHKB keys are sold as a set and the front printed ones are sold individually but Ellipse will have to verify this and any ordering/price info.

How do you buy the caps? The website really hates my phone.

I see. Good to also know that the front printed keys will be produced by Ellipse. I remember reading previously that the front printed function keys would be produced by Unicomp.

I also remember reading that international keys would be produced by Unicomp. Is that still true? Can Ellipse clarify what keys will be produced and dye-sublimated by him. And what will be done by other companies such as Unicomp?

Yes Zed is correct on the return front legend.

Darkcruix on the dye sublimation: I should have something in a week or so from now. The quality of recent tests was below that of my older tests, and I think I figured out what needs to change with my setup. Will be ready to test next week. Every variable makes a difference in the results.

The factory expects to wrap up mass assembly by mid- to late August. We had some last minute troubles with the foam packaging and boxes (I was not happy with the quality of the production samples and had them remake the samples a few times). Outside foam is finished, but the boxes need another 3 weeks.

The factory also lost some of the classic cases (!) last year during a warehouse move and only discovered the issue this year (they covered almost all of the replacement cost but I still had to cover a lot of the cost - minor price increases for the final round are likely at this point to cover all the overages).

Mass assembly of the keyboards is ongoing. I believe they are about half done.

Muirium maybe try the site in desktop mode in your browser. The mobile interface is not great on the project web site.
