Hrmmm, I’m torn.
I like the design as such, especially the non-rectangular top, having separate indicator LEDs in the case, and the T3 Westi on the PCB.
But I’m still unsure about that additional row. I’m not really a gamer (mostly adventures or strategy games, and I don’t use WASD for the few ancient FPS I occasionally play, e.g. Doom) and the only key I currently would put there would be an Escape key… And maybe
]}. Any renders with keycaps to get more of an idea how that is intended to look like?
I also got used to the RGB leds of the MiniVan and encoding things in different positions and different colors. Which seems not possible here.
And what keycap set would be fitting colorwise to black and brass as there seem no other color options? Surely needs to be a dark one, but I can’t imagine that e.g. GMK SkIIdata does fit colorwise. Maybe that MG Ember GB I joined a few months ago on Massdrop? But I currently have no idea if that keycap set has MiniVan compatibility. Would have to dig up that detail…
Also: Does the “PayPal email” field in the form imply that I need a PayPal account for joining that group buy? Or is it just the field for an arbitrary e-mail address that will be passed to PayPal for sending me the invoice?
Maybe I should just wait for the JetVan PCB to show up in the TKC online shop.
Nevertheless, I need more MiniVan cases, preferably metal ones. A @Keyboardbelle MiniVan case would be nice, though, too. But I’m spoilt for choice there (beside current availability).
