more_vert
Looking to gauge interest in my venture

Fusekai
"Floating World"
An amalgamation of Fuyu Sekai. Name is inspired by Ukiyo-e movement during Edo period in Japan during the 17th to mid 19th century (Obsessed with Irezumi)
I am looking produce keyboards under my brand (Fusekai) label in partnership with Vortex.

The details are outlined below: Soho62 (Based on the Pok3r 3)
  • 62 keys * Cherry MX switches
  • Dye-subliminated PBT keycaps in OEM profile
  • Qwerty, Dvorak, Colemak layout
  • Metal bezel
  • Price: USD ~$110
Cloud75 (Based on the the Race 3)
  • More info to come
  • Price: USD ~$120
Koi78 (Based on the Vibe)
  • 62 keys + number pad
  • Cherry MX switches
  • Dye-sublimated PBT keycaps in OEM profile
  • Anodized computer numerical control aluminum machined case
  • Price: USD ~$130

Misc
  • All keyboards come with a keycap puller, mac keys, and a micro USB
  • Keyboard and keycaps will be manufactured in Taiwan * Customizeable case colors * Prices are estimates
  • Will confirm production lead time soon
  • Keycaps
  • Thick, solid, and long lasting PBT keycaps in OEM profile compatible with Cherry MX switches. Legends are dye-sublimated so they won’t fade or shine through use
  • Legends will be in a sans-serif Futura typeface

I am looking to release multiple keycap sets with the keyboards and would like to see suggestions of themes. Hopefully the best themes can be included with the launch.

Will be updating with photos of engineering samples once they are available.

Cloud75 with Zealio switches please!! Premium case would be great.
I don't care for OEM profile caps - I prefer DSA or XDA. I understand that I may be part of a small minority here so I can replace with my own caps.

Cloud75 based off the race 3 peaked my interest. Backlight it, aluminum case it, you have my interest. The race 3 aluminum case always struck me as thin. If this doesn't get off the ground I'll likely just add my own LEDs to a race 3 and hope for a better case.

If you're doing Futura anyway, a Wes Anderson/Life Aquatic style cap set (like Belafonte Terminal, https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=61661.0 or Life Aquatic https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=83914.0) would make it an insta-buy for me.
Any option for non-Cherry switches? I'm in love with the Kailh BOX Pale Blue, would love to get them on a board like this.
