Weekly Update - June 19, 2019

Keyboard Kits

  • Ortho48, Ortho60, and Practice60 are in stock! More Practice65 kits should be stocked soon.
  • One new kit is still in prototyping. The Ortho75 is a 15x5 ortholinear kit, that fits into a 60% case. The firmware needs to be finished.
  • I'm working on an app that should make flashing the Blue Pills easier.
  • As a reminder: My source for low profile sockets is now out of stock. The price there was amazing, and I doubt I'll be able to get that kind of rate. I'm working on sourcing more. Moving forward, they will no longer be provided with kits (as half of you guys don't use them anyways!) but will be available to purchase.


  • The Instant60 PCB has arrived, and is now shipping! The latest VIA release has support for it. A Mac OS X binary is coming soon.
  • The AN-C 60 PCB has passed prototyping. It has support for these layouts, and will be configurable in VIA Configurator. It also features RGB underglow. Preorders will start soon.


  • Check out the IC for GMK Peaches n Cream. It will be available for Group Buy on CannonKeys in July!
  • The order for GMK Wavez has been placed. A first round of samples has been received, and we are iterating with GMK to refine the colors.


  • The Satisfaction 75 group buy was a great success! Thank you all for the support. There are more details available on Geekhack.
    • The keyboard cases, RAMA Knobs, FR4 plates, and PCBs are all undergoing manufacturing.
    • OLED screens and CF plates have already finished manufacturing and are on their way.
    • Keep your eyes open for the SatisKracken artisan knob release, coming soon!
    • There are still more custom knobs being developed.
  • The Brutal60 has been completely shipped. There are a VERY limited number of B stock extras. They will be released next week.
    • There are no Tsangan plates available
    • There will be another round of Brutal60 keyboards in a different, secret color.
  • secret new project is currently underway...


    • The GMK Wavez deskmat will be on CannonKeys for a GB soon!
    • I am still planning on stocking Milky Gateron Yellows, they should (hopefully) arrive sometime this month.
    • GMK Screw In Stabilizers have been ordered and should arrive in July. 
    • Keyboard sleeves have been ordered. They will be available in two sizes, one for 60, 65, and 75% boards. The other for TKL and 1800 boards.
