[IC] Noxary XRF (Aluminum Realforce Case) - Group Buy Info!

The Noxary XRF is a case replacement for the Realforce R1, a TKL keyboard designed & produced by Topre. You will be able to take the internals of your Realforce, and swap out the plastic case for the all metal enclosure. The included custom daughterboard features a USB C port, allowing you to connect your own cable. This is compatible with the 86u, 87u, 88u, and 89u, however due to the Winkeyless blockers, full disassembly is required to remove two housings on the bottom row.

Please note: The plate is shown for demonstration purposes only, and is not included with this product.

Hey all, thought I’d finally post this here. In case you haven’t followed, originally posted in 2017, it’s finally time to get this thing going. There is just one more decision to make - WK or WKL (or both)! Please vote in the poll, and also leave your comments regarding which way you’d swing.

I’d love to get the lower price, which would sway towards just one, but running both is a possibility. I’m not sure, and need your help! :sweat_smile:

The pre-production prototype is finally arriving at the end of this month barring any massive delays. Hopefully I can show it soon :slight_smile:

Lovin’ the look. We’ve been waiting for this :eyes:

Love the simple geometry and larger forehead!

No way in hell I’m ever gonna afford this thing, much less a RFR1 to put in it… but damn, this thing is utterly beautiful. @cijanzen is right - the larger forehead is essential for a Realforce.

I’m always in favour of Winkey since I don’t think it detracts from the aesthetics and I can always have a software blocker. I’d rather have the option to use the Windows key if I need to.


It’s on the way!

Bueno.

Looks great. I’d prefer a WK version.

50/50 in the poll, good to see how different platforms perform.

Small update - The prototype has arrived and I’ll release some pictures on Friday!

WK and WKL will both run, and pricing will be announced soon (same price for either). :blush:

In the progress of getting final renders done!

When will the actual buy start/end? Nothing is locked in right now, but it’s next for sure.
