It looks like an over-engineering Rama project. It has a lot going on. Possibly too much (visually). What do you think?

Definitely looks like a RAMA. I really don’t like the top two rows aligned like that in general, but especially on a TKL

agreed, that combined with everything else makes it feel like it’s trying to do too many thing at the same time in a very distracting way. It having bluetooth seems pretty nifty though.

I actually like how busy it is in contrast to how simple most designs are. I don’t mind the two top rows being aligned like that only because it’s the F-key and number row.

Don’t care much for bluetooth but if it’s got solid battery life then it’s a plus.

I actually do like how it looks as well. The compactness of it. I don’t see this on their website, are they planning a GB on this?

It was on their Instagram page to drum up interest. Will most likely be a GB after they see what people are wanting from it.

Personally, I like the design, and I find it a little more appealing than the U-80, and I’m normally a massive RAMA hype man. Plus the Bluetooth is really nice.

Same here. Bluetooth would be really useful in my use case scenario of having 3 computers on my desk.
This colour scheme is pretty dope.

I think that once this design would not have passed but it would have been criticized more or less rightly, precisely because it was too inspired, but I see that only with certain people there are controversy. However I prefer U-80

KMK Labs.

Now that MT3 Serika is in IC I might have to pick this up. It does look a little busy and really pushing the boundaries of what I’m comfortable with but I’m willing to give this a try.

Having that F row right up against the number row is a nice choice IMO. I prefer compact layouts with minimal wasted space.

I’m not sure about that groove that goes all the way around the top. Looks like it would probably collect a lot of cheeto dust. It is aesthetically pleasing though.

Does it really need so much space dedicated to logos? Seems like overkill.

It’s like the gold trimmed white Caddy Deville in the 80’s. I like it! :grin:

Well it’s all about preference but I must admit I really like that “heavy” look it has. Would go super nice with GMK Heavy Industry imo!

And this feels / looks like a really good quality keyboard too.

I am really liking it.

I respect Percent’s attempt to try new things. I think with some slight editing this could be a winner.
