please keep us updated, thanks.

So I’ve bought one of the hyper 7 kits and am def looking at making a PCB and plate to support. Did anyone ever get that far before? Seems some PCBswere made but no pictures and no finished boards....

So the trend is shifting to keyboards that are usable in a zombie apocalypse again?
I don't know if I like this but I sure respect all the amazing effort you are putting into this :)

I would hardly call the Hyper7 a trendsetter. After all, it's little more than vaporware at this point.

Well, I might have a go once I get the caps. I've got as far as getting a PCB design mocked up and about to be ordered. Case I intend to be just a wooden home made affair with floating keys design. No ideas on a plate yet. working with a small group of others that have done the hard work tho so far. All pending those caps though - when will they ship @7bit?

How DID you source the caps? I've found them to be unobtainium.

Posts pass 7K is already rare.

This kit and 7bit's Round 6 (or Round 7) should have a re-run.

I bought the full set from R6 leftovers last summer

I am also looking for Hyper7 caps. But to no avail.

I'm not a big fan of the tiny spacebar. Also if it has a built in trackpoint where are the mouse buttons supposed to go. The logical place would be in front of the spacebar built into the case. The main technical problems are probably gonna be ergonomic, you have such a staggering amount of keys, trying to find the right placement and spacing, row angle is going to be tricky. On the firmware side, do all the keys used on the board have HID codes.
Will Soarers work on this board, how many rows, columns does it support? I've never used Soarers converter but it was made for xt/at right which only used two lines to transmit scancodes. Might be easier to use something else, I would just write my own, its such a cool board it deserves its own firmware.

Hyper7 kit is part of the DSA Ferrous keyset introduced yesterday on PMK. Will a new run of PCBs be on the horizon?
