How Do Polls Work?

Vote for your favorite products in an existing poll or create a new one. We’ll make the most popular products available on the site in limited-time events called “product runs.”

We've updated our kits. Consult our talk page for more info.
I didn't know I needed another DSA set, but there it is!
ETA 2 weeks on group buy launch. Cheers

Indeed, we're live!
As someone about to build a Zen I would love this with ErgoDox support.

Unfortunately, no ErgoDox kit... You could always try to source some dark grey (or black) blanks from pimpmykeyboard or elsewhere. Our colour code is GB, but GX is very close as well. NN for black. I believe you need 4 x 2u and 12 x 1.5u spaces. Good luck!
Make it happen. I will buy.
In the Specialty set is there a 1.75 shift? I can't tell from the image. If not, I wouldn't force people to buy the 40s kit for a 1.75 kit (found for example on the whitefox).

Yes, there is a 1.75u and 2.25u Shift in the specialty kit. Whitefox is covered ;)
My fingers are crossed for this! As someone who’s profession is science, I was wondering, will Greek symbols ever be an option? There’s practically non out there and having beta, alpha, theta, omega and gamma as well as the algabraic x and y would make these literally one of a kind - I’ve yet to find any novelty sets with those. I’ve just ordered a vortex vibe and I plan to use these along with some Greek symbols on the num pad section if ever I find any.

We originally had plenty of ideas for novelties, but had to boil it down to the above. For example, a Ti-83 kit, Ducky Pocket add-on and various calculator operations. If you look at discrete math, physics, then the list goes on... Greek symbols is one of the most elegant options. While I would ideally offer all these options, we cannot guarantee that they will sell enough to justify a high "minimum order quantity" (which is necessary with custom legends). Perhaps in the future!

Sounds like we need more MK enthusiastic scientists! Thanks for the reply and taking the time to design the set, I’ll be customer non the less if (when) they drop!
(Edited)
The kits were updated recently, see https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=92780.0 for more details. I'm working on a community "talk" post that explains some of the ideas behind this keyset. More to come!

I see on the GH page that there are kits for alphas and a TKL set but not among the voting options here on Massdrop. Are those two kits part of the main set voting option? I particularly like the extra yellow and teal accent keys in the TKL kit that aren't pictured for the main set option here.

Hey! It will be split like on the geekhack and Massdrop talk pages, with the extra yellow 2nd and teal Esc and Enter. The poll was made before we decided and it's not obvious how to rearrange the options. I just put up a render for the preview thumbnail.
Hi voodoo6k, I see that you mentioned NorDe (aka Swedish keyboard layout) in your key cap publication. Thank you for doing that, a good NorDe key cap set is much needed.
Please feel free to have a look at the NorDe thread I just started here https://www.massdrop.com/talk/10419/white-on-black-doubleshot-keys-nor-de-swedish-traditional-symbols-black-system-for-windows-keys-no-m . If you or anyone would make a great doubleshot white-on-black generic, non-multimedia, blank/"System" as Windows key, traditional symbol keys key cap set would be great, I can't find any anywhere now. Cheers!

@voodoo6k , with "multimedia" I mean the distracting play/pause and similar labels that are printed on the front or top of keys, on front is illustrated by Filco Majestouch 2 Convertible's F1-F8, F12, PrtSc, Pause and right Windows keys (https://www.diatec.co.jp/en/det.php?prod_c=1874), and top print is illustrated by these optional WASD keys http://www.wasdkeyboards.com/index.php/products/keycap-mod-packs/mediakey-modifier-set.html . WASD's CODE keyboard (https://codekeyboards.com/) also has multimedia prints on the front, on the Ins/Del/Home/End/PgUp/PgDn buttons.

Gotcha
For the amazing renders see the post over on geekhack: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=92780.0;topicseen
So because I was only allowed 3 votes, I had to vote for the main kits, but I like and intend buy them all. So... Hope the voting count doesn't mean that some kits will be eliminated.
Okay, I wasn't aware that you were only allowed 3 votes on these polls...

Yes, this 3-vote limit makes it difficult to find out how much interest there is in any specific child kit. A lot of people just vote for the base kit, as that is the best way to drum up interest in the drop as a whole. I just added a Colevrak kit to this poll. Are the two sets of F and J in the base kit standard and barred? If they are dished and barred, then this proposed kit should at least include standard F and J, and perhaps offer both barred and dished for the H, U, N, and T.

Hey. Sorry for the late reply. They are standard and barred (no dished option). Thanks for the info!
