It'd be nice for this drop to come back since there was a recent drop for HHKB Pro 2 :)
I need this ...
Will this ever be made?
Was there a JP layout version?
Support for Bluetooth version? :D

I just want the case idc about bluetooth.
Vloshko
Either way, I would be happy. I have a Type S as well, but the BT version is what I primarily use at the moment.
Please?
The problem with this case design is, that it's an rectangle brick and therefore not very ergonomic.
Hey guys, I'm currently in the process of developing my ideas for a custom HHKB case into designs --> prototypes. Specifically I'm looking to completely hand-craft each case, with providing a variety of exotic woods and customizable options to choose from. I plan to begin my first "round" of production in the relatively near future.
However, in order to make this happen I need your help. To my knowledge, every attempt at an aftermarket HHKB Case has ended in some degree of failure. Please express your interest in my project, as well as provide any feedback on my ideas, and suggestions of your own by going to either my GeekHack forums post https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=86167.msg2313745#msg2313745 or my Reddit post: https://www.reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/5ga2pi/custom_hhkb_exotic_wood_cases/. My schedule dictates that I move quickly, so it's important that I have several perspectives to help determine the right steps to take for the project. (for example: custom wooden plate vs milled).
Thanks, David
Does anyone have this installed on their HHKB? Care to share some pics?
I mean if they're not going to do this ever again can we just get the cad files so we can mill it ourselves? selfish to just hold on to the files like that if we can't support you and you can't provide
relisher
100% agree.. in dire need of these files right now for my project...
325 requests. So yes?
They definitely need to do the small requested revision to a more standard form factor, and then this drop will instantly fill up!
For anyone want this to happen: if there aren't a redesign for this case it's never going to happen.
Hey drop! You hear me? Happen!!!
'[Enough] users have requested this product.'
...need 13 more "Request Click" and it's done ... ^^
I'd love to see this come back.
did this successfully drop or not?

Someone is still listening, thanks!
kingrama? :O
All right, so I've been trying to work the case into my economy, but on the last day we haven't even reached half of the MOQ, so it seems like I won't have to. It really is sad that the massive support for a metal case from GH didn't carry over to MD's design.

Actually 10 have already joined so this could still make it through.
The HHKB "Brick" has to be done and it's a serious case for those wanting desktop protection from any adversary.
I couldn't resist smacking someone down with this case and knowing full well that my Thorpies shall be fully protected ; )
Ty Elrick and Air_tree,
very nice to start the day with fun and a big smile!
I want to see a picture of the feet.
It's confirmed, anything linked to the HHKB is doomed to FAIL outright ; )
Always knew it wasn't that popular here on MassDrop, thank gawd for that.

True the HHKB is way too small for me so it's size stops me from using it at all.
All 60% sized keyboards are in the calculator sized category and can only be used with one finger at typing. Hence forget about any adequate typing speeds when the keyboard is the width of one hand.
Thought having an aluminum case would solidify the shape into a brick so that when the keys are pressed I wouldn't damage it. Without a solid case this keyboard looks so delicate, that I would crush it under my index finger and no store would take back a damaged HHKB.
Elrick
Sorry, Elrick, I guess we didn't figure you were so manly, that you had to deal with physically being unable to use an HHKB.
My condolences.
I wish someone from massdrop would at least say something, considering the amount of feedback and unpopularity of the current design...

I doubt they're paying attention to the comments at this point.

I don't know the reason for the silence or what they should say, but i would bet my ass they're paying close attention for constructive feedback. Some people here underestimate them, of course they're salesman and have to make a living, but from my experience it's no way close to, that they don't care.
아...
이 미친놈들 이제 이런것까지 내놓다니..
I am out due to design. It is just a box, a metal box. The designers would have gotten 1.000 pledges if it would have been designed more like the original plastic shell. My opinion. It is sad.
DanielFerrer
Some people also enjoy the aesthetic of this case, and hopefully at least 20 people order because this is a really cool, rare item,
phoxxii
"Some people"
A whole 7 out of hundreds that own the HHKB
And it will definitely be rare because there's only going to be the one or two prototypes seeing as how this drop isn't even on course to succeed.
Would anyone who's buying one be willing to sell their stock plastic case after they receive it? I need one for a project.
Got one in black! I for one think they're beautiful
I'd like to get this just because elite HHKB reasons, but I'm quite afraid of the extra weight this will add to the board. I recently got a Tex Yoda and was a bit turned off by the weight of the board. I'd actually rather see a plastic/acrylic case for my Yoda to lighten it up than a metal case for my HHKB to weigh it down.
It looks like this drop is going to fail just due to poor marketing skills: no video, no sound test, no picture of others colors, crappy color scheme in the drop's banner...
Come on, Massdrop!
ramnes
Its basically as if Massdrop wants $215 with 5 pictures ..........
Is the slope of the keys changed? I would get this if the profile is left intact.

Now that you mention it, it also looks like my old refrigerator but without the doors.

The funny thing is, that the original cheapo plastic casing was way too light for some users and they cried about how it moved when they typed with it.
No more excuses when you install the guts of it into this casing, it should stay put in one place.
Bonus is that any intruder should easily get his head caved in with this new keyboard, although you'll have to spend time cleaning out all their brain juice from in between the keys ; )
