Pre-Production Sample

We received a couple of the pre-production samples of the SHIFT last week. This is one of the key milestones for getting the keyboard ready for mass production. Here is a side-by-side photo showing our original SHIFT design and the new updated one.

Our next steps are to update the firmware on the new SHIFT along with ensuring the various mechanical / electrical parts are to spec. I’m pretty excited about checking off this step and we will be updating as we hit more milestones. Let me know what you think in discussion!

Hopefully when the Shift is released, the Massdrop configurator's LIGHTING OPTIONS (MORE ANIMATIONS/EFFECTS) and QMK FEATURES LIKE TAP DANCING can be included. As it stands, a $250 board with at best, basic level QMK stuffs and lighting modes accessible to noobs like me who has zero coding experience, might as well I purchase a random redragon or Ducky One 2 SF or a Razer. At this point, using the QMK configurator from QMK site no per key LED /Effects customise, forcing me to use MD's BAREBONES configurator. Is it a curse I'm a keyboard enthusiast but doesn't know how to code in C for QMK? Powerful as it sounds, feature reach as it sounds, if 80% of the features are locked away in coding that the average layman like me can't understand/don't have time to learn but would like a powerful keyboard that's inhibited by a firmware configurator that offers the barest of basics?

My dudes, please include higher feet. The only reason I gave up on the Alt is it's not angled enough and I hate wrist rests which are not attached.

What’s the deal with the dropped arrow keys? Can’t imagine a benefit to the keyboard layout or ergonomics.

Would definitely be a lot more interested in a high profile version.

The only way I'm getting this board is with a high profile case! DITCH THE LOWPRO!

When will they be back in stock? really want to order one of these. Also, will there be an option for nordic keyboard layout? really a dealbreaker for me.

I've been waiting on this too. But based on the previous post it sounds like these will be available again for purchase around late January time.
