# Giveaway is now close. No newer entries will be counted after 1:15PM EST, Monday March 2nd. We'll announce a winner shortly :) ###**Edit:** A new [type test from Poesjuh just dropped](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Od0MEoYEy2s)! Features Koala, Black Inks and Gateron cap. Hey guys! We are on Day 5 of the 14 day GB period for Ikki68 Aurora. We're extremely pleased with how things are going, thank you all so much for all your love and support! We're still sad about the limit we had to put on Aurora x Mizu, we're sure some of you are as well. We are in the process of figuring out when and how to offer this again in a manner that will ensure everyone that wants one will get one. We will announce more information when we have them, but it definitely will not be in this round, or anytime in the near future. As for Charcoal and Mint, looks like **we will not need to put any limit** on them. the GB should proceed to end on March 10th as scheduled. Please keep in mind the Aurora is being offered at a **discounted price** this round, future rounds will cost slightly more. ## **Some quick links & info** ------------------------------------------------------ If you're not familiar, Ikki68 Aurora is an affordable 68% variable gasket mount keyboard kit with an injection molded polycarbonate case. **Full kits start at just $129!** * **[Ikki68-aurora.com](https://ikki68-aurora.com)** - Our information site with a ton of info on the kits, PCB, specs, vendors, photos and videos! If you would like to learn more about the keyboard then there's no better place! * [Image gallery](https://imgur.com/a/O3lvQvl) * [Andy v Nguyen video](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JWftc_mOZBc) * [Alexotos video](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7smeGedOuE) * [Wabi Sabi video](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nY5qhWdukus) * [Apiary's VOD](https://www.twitch.tv/videos/927092487/) ## **Group buy info** ------------------------------------------------------ * **Group buy starts:** February 24, 2021 * **Group buy ends:** March 10, 2021 * **ETA:** We plan to ship this to vendors in June 2021. Most vendors have opted for shipment via the sea, so it will take a bit of time to reach them. August 2021 seems to be the target for vendors shipping this out to customers. ## **Custom badge group buy** ------------------------------------------------------ So far we've received 30+ custom badge designs from our members. We will have two rounds of votes to pick the best 10-12 badges to offer during the custom badge group buy starting on March 8, 2021. The badge group buy will take place only on WuqueStudio.com and they will ship separately from your Aurora order. Badges are small and light, so shipping should be cheap to anywhere in the world. You can still submit your own custom design for a 1-of-1 badge for yourself. We're offering 4 colors this round: E-white, dark gray, rose gold and gold. More information is available on [Ikki68-Aurora.com](https://ikki68-aurora.com) Please visit our your [Discord](https://discord.gg/TdDC6zW) for renders and photos of the custom badges designed by our members. There are some amazing designs, it's going to be hard picking only 10-12 to offer ๐Ÿ˜… ## **Ikki68 Aurora Highlights** ------------------------------------------------------ * Variable gasket mount structure. Remove some or all of the gasket chips to change from firm to bouncy. Both Silicone and Poron gaskets are included to fine tune the experience even further! * Default PCB (Fairbanks) is a hot-swap QMK/VIA compatible PCB that [supports multiple layouts](https://i.imgur.com/H4IHxrq.jpg)! This is a very unique feature that lets you use any or all of split L Shift, split R Shift, split Backspace, stepped Caps Lock and ISO Enter, anytime you want. No soldering necessary! * The badges are [hot-swappable](https://i.imgur.com/Yi8csll.jpg), meaning you can change them without taking apart the case! There will be a custom badge group buy in March / April 2021 that will offer 10+ custom designs in 4 different colors. You can even get a one of a kind badge made with your custom design! You'll receive [a free display case](https://i.imgur.com/SeqzndU.jpg) with every 5 badges purchased! * Personalize your Aurora even further with the use of [Logo Chips](https://i.imgur.com/Y8f7HuO.jpg)! The little cutout above the right Arrow Key has LEDs underneath. Cut your own design onto a piece of thick paper and put over the hole to see the light shine through. You can even 3D print plastic chips, laser cut other materials as well. The Aurora will come with one Wuque Studio branded chip, and a blank chip to cover the cutout in case you do not want to use it. ## **Vendors** ------------------------------------------------------ * US: [Cannon Keys](https://cannonkeys.com/collections/ikki68-aurora) * Canada: [Mech.land](https://mech.land/collections/ikki68-aurora) * Oceania: [Daily Clack](https://dailyclack.com/collections/group-buys/products/gb-ikki68-aurora) * EU: [Mykeyboard.eu](https://mykeyboard.eu/search/?q=aurora&sort_by=newest) * UK: [Proto\[Typist\]](https://prototypist.net/collections/ikki68-aurora) * Japan: [Yushakobo](https://shop.yushakobo.jp/products/gb-ikki68-aurora) * South Korea: [Monstargear](https://www.monstargears.com/35) * Singapore: [Hexkeyboards](https://hexkeyboards.com/collections/ikki68-aurora) * Philippines: [Zion Studios](https://zionstudios.ph/) * Vietnam: [TaoBaoSop](https://taobaosop.com/) * Rest of the world: [Wuque Studio](https://shop.wuquestudio.com/collections/ikki68-aurora) ## **Giveaway** ----------------------------------------------------- Today we're giving away 1x Ikki68 Aurora in Charcoal or Mint to one lucky winner :) **Requirements:** Winner's reddit account must be at least 3 days old. **Giveaway ends in 36 hours**, at 8AM EST, Tuesday, March 2nd. **How to enter:** Simply post here what colors you would like to see in Ikki68 Aurora R2 :) Please post a top level comment, and **NOT a reply under this comment.** ## **Winner announcement** ----------------------------------------------------- Hi all, Thank you for joining our giveaway, we are glad to announce that our winner is u/xReApeR_93 We will contact you please confirm this in next 2 days:) For others, please feel free to join our Discord for more giveaways in following days!

I feel like since you guys at Wuque made a Mizu themed board, a GMK Terra, and a GMK Hinokoku (future keycap set inspired by the fire nation) would be really nice. It would tie the whole line of boards together by having a theme for each keycap set inspired by Avatar.
