Hey all! This is Lbibass here, and I am happy to announce a new keyboard that I have been working on for the last couple of weeks. The BnB87.
This is a gasket mount TKL manufactured by ALF and designed by me. It uses a gasket mount similar to what the 356mini used, with a gasket wrapping around the switches, and the gasket resting on protrusions in the bottom case. It will use a 6.6º angle. These BEAUTIFUL renders are by @Tesletron.
Options for plates will include half plates and full plates. Still deciding on layout support and the material, but for sure the PCB will support a 7u spacebar. Still deciding on whether or not to support 6.25u layouts, as it would compromise the plate. If interest is high enough, then I will add an option in the GB for a 6.25u+7u plate. You can vote here.
In addition, I am still unsure as to what connection will be used, either Mini-USB or USB Type-C. You can vote here for that option.
Right now I have no plans for ISO. Sorry Jae . I feel like it compromises the PCB too much, and right now there are no plans to launch in the UK. That could change if I feel enough people are interested.
I am also planning on having Alps support, for those who enjoy that. Right now I am planning to only support 7u Alps layouts, as that is the most common.
In terms of case material, the two options I am planning on having produced are Polycarbonate and your regular old aluminum, with a brass weight. On the polycarbonate model, there will be brass screw in inserts, so no need to worry about stripping . I will continue to post updates with more renders as they come out. Thanks for reading.
PRICE AND RELEASE TBD.
