Disclaimer

About the case:

1. Keyboard case - If you see any resemblance of marks or foreign material under 2 mm (tool marks, stain, dent, sand mark, scratch, etc.), you're not eligible for Return & Refund.

2. Brass weight - If you see any resemblance of marks or foreign material under 2 mm (tool marks, stain, dent, sand mark, scratch, etc.), you're not eligible for Return & Refund.

3. Case interior - Based on the production method of anodizing and spraying, the product can lead to some smearing at the surface level, and you'll see some hook marks within the case. Also, the spraying process can not guarantee that the color will look 100% the same on the internal case corners. The color off on the interior case and the interior corners are not eligible for Return & Refund.

4. About the potential coating defects: Because the Faraday cage exists for this type of production method, it's going to be hard to coat the Interior corners perfectly. Insead of kill all the smoothness on the case coating, the interior painting job won't be as perfect as the exterior's.

Attention:
-Make sure to QC your keyboard case and weight before building it. For any issues besides the three above, please get in touch with our customer support agents to get help.
-For anything built is not eligible for Return & Refund.

Case Options

Based on feedback from IC,
we finally decided that users can
not only choose uni-color cases,
but also have the option for two-tone boards.

Mounting System

Tadpole mount

The tadpole mount introduced to us by Korean keyboard designer and manufacturer Geon.

Tadpole Pin D3.0: only 60A hardness is available.

Geon’s tadpole having various hardness ratings, and allows the user to fine-tune their typing experience based on their preferences. If you have other hardness requirements, you can purchase them yourself from Geonworks Web.

Top mount

The classic top mount which gives you a solid typing feel and clean acoustics.

There are 8 mounting points, top 4 and bottom 4.

You can obtain the ideal typing feel by matching plates made of different materials.

PCB

- Basic Features: 1.6 mm non-flex cut Hot-swap PCB; Caps lock key support RGB indicator; QMK firmware, VIA support; USB-C port, with daughterboard+JST cable.

- New Design Principle: the Pavlov PCB is different from that of traditional mechanical keyboards. It is the first mechanical switch solution to utilize the principle of electrostatic capacitance. The switches still use traditional MX mechanical switches, but the triggering mechanism employs electrostatic capacitance, while also featuring hardware-level key debouncing. For example, switches that used to have issues with chattering can still function normally on this PCB.

- Electrostatic Capacitor Solution Compatibility: In the future, we will develop a dedicated set of electrostatic capacitor components to adapt to this PCB.

Plate

Each kit will include 3 plate options giving the user more flexibility: aluminum, FR4, and polycarbonate. (all non-flex cut)
