Monoblock Case FRL TKL O-Ring Mounted Keyboard
0. Status
Prototype /#1 is currently being tested, design is based on the earlier version. Prototype /#2 on production, will implement the new appearance as the latest render

  1. Intro
    Hello everyone! I’m excited to introduce Øbliviate, a FRL TKL keyboard layout featuring an o-ring mount within a single monoblock design. The concept behind Øbliviate is to deliver a 60% O-ring keyboard experience by dividing the alphanumeric cluster and navigation cluster into separate sections. The hypothesis behind this design is that by having separate sections between each cluster, the inner wall will create a friction fit with the PCB and plate, impacting both sound and typing feel.
    Interest check is now open.

  6. FAQ
    Q: Why the price is too high?
    A: A nature of production, less quantity less price vice versa, we offer a “the more the merrier” format, the more people join the group buy, the cheaper it will get.

    A: We will provide transparency by sharing the submission sheet with masked privacy information to track the quantity.
