Epomaker Alice QMK/VIA DIY Kit
To be an exceptional DIY keyboard kit, Epomaker Alice adopts the ‘arisu’ layout which is slightly different from the traditional alice layout. It is splitted based on a 65% keyboard, developed from the original Alice layout to meet the demand for arrows keys and some function keys on one side.
Gasket mount keyboards are well-known for giving a cushioned typing feel, as the plate is not in direct contact with the case housings. Compared with other mounting systems, a gasket-mounted keyboard, especially with a PC plate, can provide a rebouncing typing experience because the gaskets cushion the shock from each keystroke. As to the sound, we go with the sound absorption cotton in between the plate and the PCB board, so the keyboard sounds and feels soft.
Epomaker Alice DIY kit is programmable by VIA/QMK. For users who are not used to the alice split layout, there’s nothing more convenient than remapping the keys by VIA without reflashing its own firmware. The changes can be saved on board, and be worry-free about losing the saved memory while unplugging and replugging the keyboard. Being compatible with QMK, there's a great potential of being programmed and modded in the Epomaker Alice for you to discover.
As a DIY keyboard, hot-swappable sockets on the PCB are convenient for changing mechanical switches at will without having trouble soldering. Being both 3 and 5-pin hot-swap, you can install or change the general 3-pin and 5-pin switches to the keyboard at will. The Epomaker Alice DIY kit indeed includes a variety of features that appeal to gamers and DIY enthusiasts. Customizing your own Alice keyboard just sounds right!
The stabilizers that come with this DIY kit are refinedly tuned to prevent rattling on large keys like spacebars and modifiers. With the general 2u stabilizers which are easily to be found around the market, Epomaker Alice DIY mechanical keyboard kit offers a premium stable typing experience as well as providing another option for DIY enthusiasts to unlock more fun of changing stabilizers.
Acrylic-based keyboards are cool to typists as they can be much brighter with backlights. Epomaker Alice DIY kit applies full acrylic pieces stacked to a complete case and installs LEDs and RGB modules on the PCB. The backlight can shine not only through the sockets but also from the sides of the keyboard, creating a visible environment even under dark conditions.
