We are very excited that the R1 Space65 has been very well received. Since keyboard was sent out, we have received a lot of positive feedback, which prompted us to further improve the keyboard and make a sequel. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Motivation for the Sequel: Cyberpunk The word ‘Cyber’ comes from the cybernetics theory and sciences. In 1948, Robert Wiener coined this word to define the control theory, with a focus on how animals and machinery control and communicate each other, including the synergy of human brain and machines. Therefore, Cyberpunk typically comes with a touch of sci-fi feel in the popular culture. I got to know the Cyberpunk culture from the the science fiction True Names by Vernor Vinge. The book depicted a future world wherein individuals use virtual identities to control real world resources and fight each other. After this novel, I got to know more hardcore Cyberpunk works, such as Neuromancer(The best cyberpunk science fiction in my heart), Bladerunner, the Matrix, etc. The Cyberpunk pop culture also influenced my designs, as it is a unique type of visual effects. Typically, a cool-toned background comes with a high contrast and high situation warm subject, which creates a strong contract effect and leaves people ample room to imagine. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Coming back to the Sequel to Space65:CyberVoyager
I have always regretted that Space65 V1 was not perfect enough, and therefore I want to create something based on V1, but sufficiently different so that it is a refreshing design.

Design Inspirations Modify some external design as well as structural (internal) design.

More specifically, in the upper left corner where the light stripe was, I added a replaceable badge to make the design smoother. And I kept the left-side light stripe. In the back of the board, I designed a weight that comprise two parts seamlessly combines to create an effect that I am very pleased with. For the plate, I will continue to include carbon fiber as the material (there are some good videos on Youtube), and people have been happy with the typing feel and sound. And this time I will also offer aluminum plate. In addition, I plan to add a vibration reduction pad in between the PCB and the plate to further enhance the typing experience.

And under the PCB, I also plan to include a noise reduction pad, even though there is really no issue of echoing with the R1 Space65. We will also be upgrading the accessories, such as the silicon pad under the board and a custom made screwdriver. In terms of pricing, I can say that they will be a bit more expensive ($299) than the R1 Space65, given many factories were shut down now, and also the cost to produce this will be much higher given upgraded materials and the weight, etc. We have perfected the anodization process, and this time the anodization will be in line or better than Think6.5 quality anodization (many people have praised the quality of Think6.5). Mounting Method: Top mount with sound dampening pads

Think6.5 was a very complicated GB. and this one only comes with Aluminum so should be more precise in delivery estimate! Thanks again.
