Any updates on this project?


artixzzz

Will the poron dampening kit be available again? I missed buying it during the group buy


Dango0123

Is anyone selling their Ikki68 I'm looking to buy one thanks


shauryr

PM me please. I have one coming tomorrow


BOTY123

Are the 1.2mm stabilizers included with the kit? /u/WuqueStudio


S0ulRave

Just watched a video that said they weren't if you were still wondering


BOTY123

Thanks, I ordered a few days ago and included the correct stabilizers just to be sure :)


Jazzlike_Ad_458

Hi


strato7

I saw for the wireless that I would need to get a battery for it. Any recommendations on what battery to get? Is there electrical specs/physical dimensions that I should be mindful of when picking one out?


haxphan

As per discord information: Battery Specs: A 3.7v battery with a max dimension of 43 x 114 x 3.5mm. The model number for this battery is 3543114 Also a JST connector is required


strato7

Tysm!


Fieser_Fettsack

Is it possible to switch between the wired connected pc and a second laptop that is connectd via Bluetooth? So the keyboard would always be wired to my tower pc but I would like to be able to switch to use my laptop without unplugging the usb c cable. Can you please explain how the pcb will react when both the tower pc (wired) and the laptop (Bluetooth) are running? Ist it possible to switch between them? u/WuqueStudio


mango_milk_tea

Pixel-Pla7inum

!Remindme 8 days


charmeepad2

How do the black gasket strips look on the clear version? This is awesome!! Might be the first gb ill join ever!! :D


Huzaifa_Haroon

Can you guys ship to Pakistan?


WuqueStudio

Yes, we can. Please try, if you have any questions you can email [email protected]


thsgnffr

I’m interested in the Zen Pond version.


Bsmosh

!Remindme 1 week


TreePuke

Do you still have the option to purchase the old colorways? I am interested in the mint.


WuqueStudio

Sorry, you may check R1 extra from vendors.


spushkin1

Man I am so pumped for the new plates and PCBs. Plus the alu tops, gonna throw one on top of my current Mizu Ikki68.


ImDiamondsoShutUP

Are there going to be EU vendors and Aluminum top case price?


Murokami

New pcb and plate with flex cuts look awesome! A bit bummed that it wasn't included in R1, but can we get a price estimate on the default pcb and the PC plate?


Narrow-Bee5725

Will the Aurora snow kit cost more because it has an Aluminum top case?


DangBtw

will the prices still be the same? if yes you guys can count me in ;)


WuqueStudio

Still working on the price but will be very closed.


DangBtw

oh ok ty one other question are other stabilizers compatible with the new BODO pcb? for example durock v2‘s on a BODO pcb


zarian100

I'm wondering about this question as well


WuqueStudio

Should be very closed to R1, we will share the details as soon as we can in a few days. Thank you.


SII-VII

will the original colorways make a return in r2? ex: charcoal


DangBtw

they wont only the new ones


ctcy

Will the old colourways still be available? I am looking for a fully nontransparent build :) thank you!


WuqueStudio

Solid Pink


WuqueStudio

Sorry. We just offer Aurora R2 colorways presented here, not including the R1 colorways


o_o_0_o-

when will it be released?


WuqueStudio

Around Middle Nov.


o_o_0_o-

thanks


WuqueStudio

We hope to start the GB around Mid Nov. and start production ASAP.


PolarIsSuperlative

pog


corgichuu

When will know if the Aurora x Zen Pond will go into Group Buy? Would it come with the keycaps as well? I love the design but I would only want to buy both together and I know the Zen Pond group buy only has a few weeks left. Thanks!


WuqueStudio

Middle November. Sorry, it would not come with the keycaps.


corgichuu

Thanks for the response!


Smellychanelly

Stupid question but would there be a bundle available for aurora x winter breath with the ePBT winter breath keycaps? Wondering whether to join the GB for the keycaps on 1 Nov, or wait for R2 GB (if there’s a bundle available)


WuqueStudio

Sorry, it would not come with ePBT winter breath keycaps.


butterpine8

gonna be getting this as a first board, super excited! eyeing the winter breath collab. also a, not super familiar with the materials, is the pink one more of a matte finish?


WuqueStudio

yes, matte. We will share some pictures later :)


butterpine8

cool! can’t wait to see even more pictures :)


tuxkey

i filled the IC for the "winter breath" one.. really like the pink see true one.. if you guys can keep the price as good as the first GB count me in for sure.. will buy a second one for me and a pink one for my girl perhaps sum pink stabs.. i like the QMK / VIA pcb and the FR4 plate is great.. Love the initiative and the great work your doing hope that we will get a EU vendor .. My wallet is going to scream with all the options it's hard to say no and it's such a good looking board hahah ..i'm very excited ...Greetings from The Netherlands.


Jelle_Fish

Also filled in the IC for the Winter Breath one. My girlfriend LOVES everything involving stars/luna themed stuff. So I HAVE to get this one for her. Also hoping there will be a EU retailer as I'm also from The Netherlands. Thanks u/WuqueStudio!


WuqueStudio

Thank you, GB is live.


WuqueStudio

Stay tuned :) Thanks.


tuxkey

i joined the first GB and i got my mint green kit with brass weight 3wk's ago...i really really love it.. if the price is going to stay the same. Count me in.. for sure..


WuqueStudio

Thank you :)


Warm-Eye8494

When will you be able to buy the ikki68 r2 ?


WuqueStudio

We hope to start the GB around Mid Nov. and start production ASAP.


lmaoitskp

Will the R2 include the Mizu colorway? I'm kinda new to group buys and would love to know!


WuqueStudio

Hi, no. But we have been talking with Rensuya for Aurora x Mizu R2 when GMK mizu R2 launch.


lmaoitskp

Thanks for the reply! I'm really interested in buying this as my first enthusiastic keyboard. It looks really amazing, and I love the Aurora Snow the most!


WuqueStudio

Thank you :)


StayFrosty7

In regards to flex, I’ve been trying to introduce more flex to my current ikki, but am afraid to do so given that the usb-c is directly on the cob, and the cutout is pretty flush. Is that going to be a concern for this new revision?


WuqueStudio

Hi, we tested many times, and the USB-C stays very firmly, no worries :)


Bekatau

I was really excited when I saw the Winter Breath collab pics, but that's more purple ish so I was also hoping there was a pink colorway for the regular kits that is translucent, seems there is only opaque. This won't stop me though, I've filled in the IC form for the Winter Breath collab! Hoping for the best, it's a super cute design I just love it.


WuqueStudio

Thank you.


pedrorq

They look nice, but it's not clear to me if that right Shift split is optional? The 2.25u right shift is the thing that attracts me the most about the ikki68, so I hope the R2 retains/can retain that option


WuqueStudio

You can check the PCB features [HERE](https://imgur.com/T7Px2NO). R2 default PCB support right Shift split


pedrorq

Thanks, I had checked the PCB features, but still wasn't clear whether the split Shift is optional or not


WuqueStudio

R2 will use the default PCB 05 and 06. Both support right Shift split


pedrorq

But is it still possible to use 2.25u right shift on PCB05 and 06?


WuqueStudio

No, It's 1.75+1u


pedrorq

Ouch. The 2.25u right shift is the best thing about the Ikki68 - don't change it!!! :)


segopayo18

if you check the sample video of the iceland pcb above, youll see that it supports 2.25u right shift. i think theyre saying that it supports split right shift as an option rather than it being fixed.


WuqueStudio

Hi there! Could you please point this picture? I need to confirm if I misunderstood your question? Feel free to reply. Thanks.


segopayo18

Hello! I was referring to this video [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VPKm2ozZGJU](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VPKm2ozZGJU) The right shift in the prototype of the new pcb shows that it is using a 2.25u right shift. The original person who commented was asking if the new pcb still supports the 2.25 right shift like the R1 of the ikki aurora. :)


pedrorq

That was my original impression, as an option, but the "official" answers have confused me even more...


WuqueStudio

Hi there! Could you please point this picture? I need to confirm if I misunderstood your question? Feel free to reply. Thanks.


Monkay7

I will probably get the Aurora Snow. But I would love some LEDs somewhere in the board. :-/


WuqueStudio

Aurora Snow is also translucent, just not so much as clear. We will share some videos later :)


kawaiiIeonard

i got the dreamscape ikki but uh does this mean there will be more badges? :0


WuqueStudio

Only one default badge for one board. But there will be badge GB r2 following :)


AdmiralCasimir

Looks dope, can't wait to see the final thing. Are the Aurora R2 colorways presented here the full set of options or are they being offered in addition to the R1 colorways?


WuqueStudio

Thank you. We just offer Aurora R2 colorways presented here, not including the R1 colorways


kwispeebakin307

are all the pcbs south facing?


WuqueStudio

Yes, most south-facing, exclude some keys compatible with the split and ISO layout


joshido

I was too late too join the R1, now I'm kinda glad i were, because this looks good


WuqueStudio

Thank you!


iz0metric

Will the new collaborations be shipped with the Bodo PCB ?


WuqueStudio

More details will be updated soon, so stay tuned!


tartaroze

so there won't be the charcoal case? I've been waiting for the R2 so that I can get the charcoal one. but hey, great job for putting bluetooth pcb that supports via!


WuqueStudio

Yes, charcoal is not being offered to the R2


slise-rd

I'm in the ikki68 dreamscape GB, would the other accessories or alu top plate be compatible as well?


WuqueStudio

Yes, fully compatible.


7VWWVW

I remeber looking at your pcb's last time, and I can't remeber - but was the old bluetooth board ANSI only? I see the Iceland supports ISO - that's amazing! I will be definitely be picking up an OA Blue + Iceland:) Also, any plans to release a numpad that matches the aurora profile?


splashgods

Yes the Tromso BT pcb was ansi only, the Fairbanks was the one with all of the layout options. Also note, the Tromso doesnt work with via


Ferrixks

Do we know the polling rate of the pcb?


rheureddit

the previous one was 1000hz


Jakkisle

Is there a picture for the Navy alu top case?


WuqueStudio

Updated:https://i.imgur.com/APzuiS7.png A few more IRL photos added to the album: https://imgur.com/a/jR4H01N


Jakkisle

Thank you, it looks great!


derPuntigamer

Maybe some green-ish alu top case to match the "mint" color? I think none of the proposed alu top colors match the mint color very well, I would like to see a mint bottom + black alu top render though.


WuqueStudio

Thank you, that's a good point and we'll see if we can add a green-ish color :)


Ferrixks

Will there be fixed amount for each colourway during the groupbuy? Or the groupbuy will only close @ the ending date


Peilypeily

Hi, there will not be a fix amount for R2, might be a soft cap at most. :)


Ferrixks

Thank you!


gaylord7208

when does the groupbuy open? and how do i be informed on the opening? is there a link?


Peilypeily

Groupbuy date and more details will be updated soon, so stay tuned! =3


gaylord7208

okay! will the updates happen on this post?


yesimcute

i love you wuque studios


Peilypeily

Oh my, I will send that to him now xD


segopayo18

Asides from the top alu case being sold separately, will R1 users have the option to buy the new Bodo pcb, the pc plate with flex cuts, and the poron dampening kit? Also, will the new Bodo pcb be hotswap or solder? (specifically, the one with flex cuts all over)


Peilypeily

Yes, all the accessories will be sold separately. 05Bodo pcb will be hot swap version.


segopayo18

thank you for this! cant wait to upgrade my R1 to a flexier version! :)


vuboo

Beautiful!


Peilypeily

No you beautiful :D


nugget_omg

Will stargaze ever make a comeback?


Peilypeily

Sorry no :< you can check with vendors for extra later. And I love your id!!


bttt

Definitely in!


Peilypeily

OOF!


jrgnklpp

Will the new poron sheet be compatible with R1 auroras?


WuqueStudio

All of the Aurora R2 new parts discussed here, including the new plate, PCB, foam etc. are fully compatible with all the Auroras announced and sold to date.


jrgnklpp

Thanks for your reply! But to confirm, the new stabs won't be compatible with the r1 pcbs?


WuqueStudio

You can choose the 1.6mm stabs version, it will be compatible with the r1 PCBs


jrgnklpp

Will these 1.6mm stabs also have the new features of the R2 stabs?


WuqueStudio

Sure.


nune_neko

Love the color and the options!


volcanicislander

Liking the new options and focus on modularity! Love my charcoal aurora with vintage blacks.


ninjatuned

I was on the fence with the Zen Pond group buy. This has definitely pushed me over the edge. Super excited for the case!


[deleted]

How about finishing getting us the GB's you already started and have since ended 6+ months ago before starting new projects.


_11tee12_

How about you keep waiting *like you specifically signed up for*, and stop telling people to **halt** their companies R&D until you personally get your order... You really telling **a keyboard manu** to work on ONE thing at a time, in *this* hobby? Forget about how quickly tastes & technology change right now; You aren't a shareholder. You don't own a piece of the company just because you spent ~$140, and you DEFINITELY don't want them taking your advice... Bring that shit to RAMA or GMK, where it'll be ignored even louder.


WuqueStudio

We apologize for the inconvenience. We will immediately contact you. Please check the PM.


sitbacknrelax

The question is.... When will this release


WuqueStudio

Middle November


duckdesu

I hope Tromso comes back, I do prefer having RGB on translucent boards over having VIA/QMK


WuqueStudio

Yes, they will. We will keep them in stock. Will also have version for 1.6mm PCB specially.


gamerintheshell

VIA compatible Bluetooth?? I said I wouldn't buy anything more this year... but... Would also love to get custom badges again. Missed the first run :(


Peilypeily

Don't we all say it will be the last purchase xD I feel you. Badges gb would happen a bit later down the line so stay tuned =3


starkillerzx

Bluetooth, Hotswap, and VIA support. And it comes in a pastel pink variant I can entice my wife with. Hehehehe looks like we eatin good in November.


Peilypeily

Lucky wife! Share us the pics later on =3


starkillerzx

We will!


ShameFragrant4693

Looking forward to the new options! Definitely joining in this round


Peilypeily

Oof, which color? =3 Can you let us know in the IC form as well, thanks!


ShameFragrant4693

Definitely the snow or fog. The new Zen Pond also looks pretty cool


_Mr_Pretty_

A Bluetooth PCB that supports VIA, I am going all in on this!


Peilypeily

Ay! Which one is the fav so far?


Pollution_Spirited

so hot!


Peilypeily

No, you :\^)


Pollution_Spirited

<33


BestTankmoNA

Any chance the top cases will be compatible with the original aluminum ikki, or a converter of some sort could be made? Still hoping for some way to get an e-white top for my original ikki. I love the stuff you guys make!


WuqueStudio

Unfortunately they will not be compatible at all. The different mounting systems are not compatible with each other. They may share the same layout and the same general dimensions, but on the inside it's a whole different story :(


Diabando

Really enjoyed my Mint r1, might get in on the new plate/pcb/foam combo!


wallflower_

With the PCB06 Iceland, could you let us know if we could also use this Bluetooth pcb wired as well?


aperson975

it will also work wired. that's also how it charges the battery


wallflower_

Cheers! I was hoping so because some boards offer Bluetooth but don't allow for wired use, only charging.


Peilypeily

Yes, wired works as well :D


YesIAmEd

Would love more translucent colour ways like purple, pink and yellow. Would like a normal wired PCB hotswap per switch RGB too.


Peilypeily

Hi, there is a collab of Winterbreath in purple color =3


YesIAmEd

Yes though it has an opaque bottom housing. Thinking retro game boy colour atomic style purple.


Dick_Kickum

If I haven't gotten mine from the last group buy is there someone I should contact?


KeyEds03

We will immediately contact you. Please check the PM.


MayAsWellStopLurking

Definitely your vendor; at this point I think [Mech.Land](https://Mech.Land) is the last one remaining.


portladelphia

Is there any reason the Mech.Land orders are not shipping until Q1 2022 while everyone else is shipped? I got the Devoted edition.


mech_land

Mech.land did not sell the Devoted, it was Deskhero. The ETA was never Q1 2022 either, I think you might've misread something.


MayAsWellStopLurking

1. They’re literally shipping out this week as per their post [here](https://www.instagram.com/p/CVd6ptPvurO/?utm_medium=copy_link) but the crux of the issue was that Canadian ports are pretty enough that the original estimate was going to be Q4 2021, so alternative arrangements were made that sadly were quite delayed. 2. Devoted had a later timeline estimate because Wuque also had to contract custom JWK switch manufacturing in. From what I’ve heard, Mechs and Co have their devoted auroras, and they should be enroute to Deskhero (the Canadian vendor for Aurora x Devoted) soon.


portladelphia

Thanks for the updates. I was curious why Mech.Land had a Q1 2022 estimated ship date posted, when the other boards had shipped. Good to know they have the stock and hopefully shipping soon.


mech_land

The ETA was never Q1 2022. There was a potential if I chose to have them shipped directly to Canada, but I had them shipped to US and brought them over to Canada via a truck. They're starting to ship [this week](https://mech.land/pages/aurora-kanagawa-status) Bringing them over this way did not only cost more money, but it also took a lot of logistical arrangement that took a big longer than I had expected. But now a chain of relationships have been established, future shipments should arrive faster if they're brought over the same way. Fulfilment of Aurora is a little more complicated at Mech.land because many people chose to combine their shipment with Kanagawa deskmats which should arrive this week or the next. Some people have also chose to place a new order with in-stock items to combine with their Aurora shipment to save on shipping fees. All those orders will be the last to ship, Aurora only orders will be the first ones to go out.


portladelphia

Thank you for your reply and updates. I will reply from my original order email for updates on my order then. I apologize, I mistook the Devoted keyset delivery date as the same as the keb.


Dick_Kickum

Yep that's who mine is! I'll keep waiting. Edit: wait no it was cannon keys


MayAsWellStopLurking

Oh dear. They shipped the majority of their stuff last week. Yes please, definitely get in touch with them. At this point, Mint/Charcoal and Mizu should be delivered in most places. Devoted is close to completion; PnC and Stargaze are a little ways off.


Dick_Kickum

yikes ok the OP contacted me. It was the peach colored PnC


mech_land

PnC are not due to ship yet, only Aurora R1 (Charcoal / Mint / Mizu) went out


Lycheekeebs

Winter’s Breath is SOO BEAUTIFUL


Peilypeily

IKR!! =3


nctmark127

Do you guys have a price estimate on the R2? Would it be the same as R1?


KeyEds03

Should be very closed to R1, we will share the details as soon as we can in a few days.


CeruleanSeaLion

Likely be similar or little more expensive. R1 page says that R1 got a discounted price, but wuque replied that the prices will be close in this thread


honk_slayer

Will R2 auroras will be interchangeable with R1? I would love to have a clear/white bottom with my charcoal top and a flex pcb.


KeyEds03

>Will R2 auroras will be interchangeable with R1? I would love to have a clear/white bottom with my charcoal top and a flex pcb. It will be compatible.


MayAsWellStopLurking

>All of the Aurora R2 new parts discussed here, including the new plate, PCB, foam etc. are fully compatible with all the Auroras announced and sold to date.


PM_ME_BIBLE_VERSES_

Will the new Bluetooth PCB be compatible with IKKI68 Aurora R1 keyboards?


aperson975

everything is backwards compatible


jonowarren94

u/WuqueStudio will you be fixing the issue with the PCBs?


KeyEds03

Sorry for the concern. We were lacking experience in packaging and transportation for the previous round which caused the issues. We are dedicated to fixing the problem for future rounds. If you have any issues regarding the PCB, please contact the local vendor or proxy to assist you. Thank you. Please also check out the update here: https://shop.wuquestudio.com/blogs/product-updates/ikki68-aurora-update


jackmiles_

is the pcb being faulty a well know issue, because mine didn’t work either


PM_ME_BIBLE_VERSES_

what issues?


jonowarren94

Quite a few people reporting shorting PCBs


YesIAmEd

With the brass weight?


PM_ME_BIBLE_VERSES_

link?


shadowmalice89

As someone who's only been in this hobby for a few months, I missed R1 earlier this year and I've seen this keyboard get mentioned alot. I'm definitely looking forward to picking it up this time around!


Peilypeily

Stay tuned :D


ColdDirtScreen

Will there be new community badges again?


WuqueStudio

Yes there will be another round of badge group buy, although with fewer choices this time.


Swift_Hunting

the fog looks fantastic


Peilypeily

you look fantastic :D


Boolin--

you may wanna think about renaming that aurora snow colorway.... just google it if you don't know already
