GMK LUX

An elegant and luxurious black and gold GMK set

    Proposed Kits*
    Core
    The Core kit is your starting point and provides layout coverage for fullsize, 1800, TKL, 75%, 65%, FC660-like layouts or 60% keyboards. Some notable inclussions are 1.00u, 1.25u and 1.50u Lux keys; the gold accent esc, enters, and arrows; 2.00u, 2.25u and 2.75u space keys; a second B for ergonomic keyboards and UK-ISO layout support.


    Space Bars
    The space bars kit extends Lux’s layout support by including two 6.00u spacebars so you can cover your HHKB, and Cherry G80-1800 keyboards. The kit also includes accent space bars for standard and split keyboards.


    * Kits are not final and may be subject to change.



    Q: The previous Lux IC (RIP) had a red accent kit, are you considering adding one?
    A: Yes, but I think the set looks good with just black and gold. There are other more important things.

    Q: RAMA Caps?
    A: Yes.

    Q: Deskmat?
    A: Already designed one. No, it's not a hexagon gold.

    Q: Why does the core kit include X but not Y?
    A: Because I thought that including X was more preferencial than including Y.

    Q: I don't like the Lux keycaps.
    A: That's not a question. I like them, and they are not going away.

    Q: Icon mods?
    A: No.

    Q: Numpad with sublegends?
    A: Yes, I don't mind those.

    Q: [Sublegends] kit? [Alternate alphas] kit?
    A: No and no. Let's keep it simple and easy.

    Q: Why Alice layout coverage on the base kit?
    A: Because there's like 12 clones of that board on the IC stage and it's just a B. The split space bars can also be used by other keyboards.

    Q: Colemak, Ergodox, Norde?
    A: No.

    Q: Forties kit? Minivan?
    A: Possible, but unlikely. No.

    Q: Why two tabs instead of X?
    A: It's a chunky base kit, and this would allow you to reuse the leftover mods.
