U80 SEQ 1 PCB / M6-B Proto / Lumen Proto

U80 Prototype PCB

A lot of people have been waiting for an update on this project, along with us! Finally received in the prototype PCB's today. Will be doing fit testing this week so then we can move quickly with the vendor to getting the product to a production-ready state. Here are some pics of the prototype PCB & Enclosure.

M6-B Proto

LEDs in action! Rainbow mode. Completely programmable via QMK and can be used to indicate a miriad of things.

Lumen (Utility) Light Prototype

A few weeks ago, we teased a concept image of a product we are working on without revealing what it is. The Lumen is an RGBW utility light controllable via HSV (Hue, Saturation, Value/Brightness), the interface consists of two dials which can be clicked in to control different parameters, Hue / Saturation, Hue / Brightness, Pulse Rate / Speed etc.

Today Wilba (our Hardware Engineer) brought over the prototype test-board to play with and we are now confident we can miniaturize it and create a neat product from it.

A lot of people have noticed the deskmat we have in the background of a lot of these images, we have stock arriving at our warehouses in the following weeks, expect something soon!

It's named the Canvas and it's perfectly ratio'd to compliment 60% sized keyboards.

M60-A SEQ 4 / M6-B / WAVE SEQ 2

Hey all! Apologies for the late update, been meaning to post one for a while but caught up in accounting, unfortunately, always the things you don't want to do. But back to what we love now!

M60-A PCB's

All the m60-A PCB's are in as of last week. Currently unboxing them all and sending them in batches to our in-house Hardware Engineer Wilba to program and test over the next few weeks.

They will then all be packaged and warehoused until the enclosures arrive.

M60-A Enclosures

All M60-A enclosures are all machined and currently undergoing Anodising by colour batch. A few colours have already been completed. All PVD coating and hand-mirror polishing have been complete on the brass components. We estimate all enclosures to finish around early September - and we will be visiting our suppliers to do a final QC before they are forwarded to our warehouse for final assembly and packaging. We will be away for a week and a half from the first week of September and reachable via our contact support email: support@rama.works. Sea-Freight should take roughly 2 weeks and we will promptly pack each order in batches of Country, Colour and Contents. 

All stainless steel fasteners and black hex screws are in and we are also creating a manual on how to assemble the M60-A. Here is an artwork we commissioned by the very talented Janne Iivonen which will be used as the front cover for the manual, it shows the diversity and playfulness we strive for within our products and customers.

We are looking forward to shipping these out and seeing them customised in their own unique ways by the new owners!

Excited to launch the new variation of the M6-B, it includes all the great features of the previous revision but now with RGB lighting! The PCB is also backwards compatible with any existing M6 enclosure.
