more_vert
Hi everyone!
We’ve been super excited about how the Varmilo VA68M has been recognized and received in the Mech Keys community.
We have been working on bringing the next batch of Varmilo VA68M in more colorful varieties, switches will be available in Cherry (Black, Brown, Blue and Red), as well as Gateron (in all).
We would like your help to us finding the 3 new colors: https://www.massdrop.com/vote/Varmilo-VA68M-in-COLORS2
And here are some of the previews for the new color options! I'm having quite a difficult time choosing myself o: What are your favorites?

Something that I've wanted Varmilo to do for quite some time: Offer keysets with transparent characters. Any of the above keysets would be better for me if the LEDs were visible through the letters.
I also notice that Varmilo has a predilection for light pastel colors. It's a kind of signature for Varmilo, isn't it?
The blue and pink keyset looks good aesthetically -- those keys and the gray case would match a suit, tie and dress shirt combination perfectly -- but I can't really see myself typing on a pink keyboard. Perhaps if the blue and pink were reversed and blue were dominant, I'd think about it. What about light purple keys for black cases, light orange and gray keys for gray or black cases, and two different shades of blue for white, gray and black cases? Also, I'm not really a fan of mint green. Chartreuse and black might be nice with a black case, though chartreuse doesn't really match your aesthetic.
One last thing:
A fair number of people have bought more than one VB87M. Here's why I haven't: the battery isn't removable and the USB connection is only for charging. It annoys me that once the battery dies, I won't be able to use the keyboard. If the USB connection could be used for typing as well as charging, I'd be more comfortable buying an input device with a bluetooth feature that could become useless in a matter of years. I might try tracking down and installing a replacement battery after it happens, but that's clearly going to be a hassle.

Nice if it's the pink word in Cotton Candy. Love the Pantone color of the year 2016.

Woah, I'm late, but the mint green looks absolutely amazing, along with the cotton candy. These are GREAT definitely hope I can get in on the drop.

Mint white choco is pretty nice, but please tell me you you're going to take away the branding from the keyboard... It's not as bad as the space key from before, but still, I don't want Comic Sans on anything I own...

Mint white choco with sprinkles.
I have Jukebox (TKL) keyset coming, would they fit on this keyboard? They look like standard spacing but i worry about the spacebar.

I like the grey and white for a classic feel and the mint green and white because it reminds me of matcha Kit Kat.
