On March 15, 2023, Wuque Studio, a custom keyboard store based in China, launched a group buy of the [M•ONE STUDIO] GINKGO65 PRO KEYBOARD KIT custom keyboard.
Prices start at $259.00 for the base keyboard kit.
The application period is from March 15, 2023 to April 3, 2023, and shipping appears to be scheduled for the third quarter of 2023 (October to December 2023).
Considering the fact that this is a high-end model, with three layers of sound-absorbing material and a gasket-mounted structure, we had the impression that it would have a very gentle keystroke feel.
This new product has many fans in Japan and is likely to be popular.
