Glad i joined the drop, cause im guessing there wont be a second drop after all the drama?
Maybe Input Club will offer it on kickstarter. Not sure how the rights of this one is negotiated. Input Club would presumably need to find their own manufacturer, and they have one for the WhiteFox. I'm hoping for a black K-Type - the NightFox is gorgeous.
Most likely not, which is why I decided to buy one off someone else. Had planned to wait for next drop.
The drama is over the Halo switches, but if IC and MD will no longer do business together, worse case scenario it seems plausible it will be available through their website or kickstarter maybe with halo switches sold separately depending on how argument settles. Hopefully because the hardware is 'open source' there will be other mods and keyboard based on it available.
The open source nature of this makes me wonder if Massdrop will just continue to make the K-Type on their own.
Kickstarters are nice and I kinda feel bad for IC (although tbh it sounds like they didn't understand what they were signing), but I find Massdrop more reliable than most Kickstarters.
I think the keyboard belongs to IC but the Halo switches name belongs to MD. IC can very well sell the K-Type with another, similar switch on Kickstarter no problem.
It's just a name from what is heard they are exactly the same switch with a different name.
