So after more than a year of working together with John/Heroyjenkins we’re both super proud to finally present you with the M0110 GB. Manufactured in LA, this board is made from 2 solid blocks of US aluminium and perfected with some amazing surface finishes! Scroll down for more info :thumb:
Like the name suggests, Modern M0110 is based on the legendary 1984 M0110 but with a modern enthusiast-focused twist. The OG M0110 is where it all started. Steve Jobs originally designed the this keyboard by hand to be sold with the first Macintosh in 1984, which on its own set out to change the world. Jobs famously chose not to use a nav cluster, which many years later inspired Eiiti Wada to design the now legendary Happy Hacking Keyboard. The HHKB not only grew a huge following within the community, it also pushed many enthusiasts to create customs boards like the Duck Viper. In short, no keyboard has a history like this one.
Modern M0110 keeps the original iconic curves but adds some modern luxury. It supports standard 60% PCBs, support for both MX and ALPS switches and has a precision lasered top mounted brass or acrylic plate for the ultimate (fixed HHKB is in the works ). For Modern M0110 we proudly offer 2 surface finishes. Anodising is the smooth finish we have come to love on aluminium in the past years and will be available in a clean Silver or stealthy Grey. Cerakote is a different story, it is a very high-end finish used most on firearms for its incredible durability. We will be offering Cerakote in a classy and vintage Light Sand or a versatile Dynamic Black. Furthermore, for those who want it we will also be able to offer the entirety of the colours in Cerakote’s H series line! This will allow you to find the perfect match for your favourite keyset to make this board truly next level, never has a keyboard GB had this many colour options!
Just a couple cool extra bits here if you’re not completely hyped out yet :D. If you’re familiar with the original Macintosh packaging you’ll sure appreciate the box Modern M0110 comes in! Designed by the talented Garrett from Dixiemech, this box gives off a stunning vintage vibe while also offering great protection during shipping because of the custom foam inserts.
We are also offering custom engraving and are allowing people to reserve serial numbers, to make this board truly your own! Furthermore, there will also be a lot of complimentary items for sale along with M0110. These range from a USB C 60% PCB, foam inserts to dampen sound, a wide range of switches to a custom Cherry Profile ALPS keyset!

Does the keyboard include a PCB? No, we didn’t find forcing a PCB a good option considering what a wide variety of 60% PCBs is already out there. Some people want ALPS compatibility and will get ours, but some want per key RGB and get a Zeal60,…
How long will the GB be open? Until the 22nd of July!
How much does the board weigh? About 3.5kg unbuilt
Why is the EU pricing so much higher than the US pricing? To put it short, it’s a combination of expensive shipping from our manufacturer to the vendor and 21% revenue tax in the EU. We really wish we could get EU pricing lower, but sadly we already cut profit as far down as we could. If you think ordering from the US will be cheaper, feel free to hit up Deskcandy for quotes however we are not responsible for any import tax.
