What's the group buy status?

Last updated 12th November 2018.

The group buy is currently not active, awaiting further development.

The M0116 and Mac Portable plates are complete and accurate. All other plates (M0118, M0330, both NeXT (non-ADB), IIc and IIc Plus) have been drafted and require testing.

All designs were reworked due to a change in case design and relative dimensions, hence the lack of recent updates.

Yiancar will be developing a dedicated QMK-compatible PCB for the ASK55.

Alas has developed a cracking case for the ASK55. A prototype will be developed shortly and renders will be available soon.

Stay tuned.

What is the ASK55?

Have you ever considered making a 60% out of that broken Apple keyboard you salvaged only to find that the keycaps won't fit an ordinary 60% PCB? Look no further.

ASK55 Plate Prototype C

With one universal QMK-compatible PCB, a choice of plates and a very special case, the ASK55 will reinvent the 14.5u layout.

The ASK55 will offer direct support for Alps layouts including the M0116, M0118, M0330, Apple IIc/IIc Plus, NeXT AAE/ABP (non-ADB) and Mac Portable.
