The big update | Lekker update #5

29 May 2020

This month's update is big. In the last update I had introduced a few different topics that were holding us back. I wasn't able to share all the details due to negotiations still taking place. But now that's for the most part behind us, I can start openly sharing.In the meanwhile, we sold out all 1000 Wooting two Lekker Editions.

Big thanks to you and fellow backers! This made the update so big, that I had separated it into 2 parts. Part 1 is about the business side of things. And part two is the lekker update itself.

 

P art 1: The business topic and future

Part 2: The Lekker project update

TL:DR

  • Lekker edition sold out (THANKS!)
  • We share various sales numbers.
  • New and better switch.
  • Bottom case needs to be changed.
  • New Timeline.

Factory, switches & logistics | Lekker update #4

15 April 2020

As captain of this ship, I want to make sure we can sail our boat through these heavy weathers without making hasty decisions. Confidence, security, and trust play a vital role. A big part of that is sharing the information I have at hand and let you know what lies ahead. Regardless of a positive or negative weather forecast. Transparency in communication is key.

 

Learn all the details in the blog

TL:DR

  • We decided to work with a different assembly factory.
  • The Lekker switch is pending final tooling.
  • Worldwide logistics has significantly slowed down.
  • PCBA improvements.
  • Delay on delivery (more info soon).

Free gift to all lekker editions

25 March 2020

We want to give our Lekker Edition backers a major thanks for the patience, trust, and support. It’s a long journey that we’re extremely thankful we’re able to take. It’s not only to deliver an awesome keyboard but also to push Wooting a step further.

That’s why we’re adding the Snackbar – Dye-sub PBT spacebar to all Lekker Edition orders for free. This doesn’t require any action from your side, we will add it inside the packaging.

Other than to continue to do our best to complete the project and deliver the Wooting two Lekker Edition, I feel this is the least we can do to show our gratitude.

Cable, switches & virus | Lekker update #3

14 February 2020

Chinese new year came to an end, or well, did it really?

The coronavirus (COVID-19) is a growing concern and the factories are not back at work yet. Not to worry, progress was made.

We made a custom Lekker Edition cable in real Lekker style and received the now hot-swappable Lekker switch sample. We’re getting close!

 

Learn all the details in the blog

TL:DR

  • Tested the cables
  • Received hot-swappable Lekker switches
  • COVID-19 trouble

Switch & New Timeline | Lekker update #2

If you paid close attention to the timeline, we would finish a trial production in November. However, that’s not the case because we had to a few items still pending:

  • (minor) Aluminum top plate color confirmation.
  • (minor) Revised PCBA.
  • (Major) Mechanical change to Lekker switch.

We had spent a significant amount of resources and time on the switch mechanical design with little avail. Until recently, we were able to make a final decision on a major change (more on this later). This time spent impacted our decision making and development in other areas, causing an overall delay from our original schedule. Learn all the details in the blog

TL:DR

  • New delivery date May 2020
  • Final sample top plate
  • Better PCB-A
  • Switch improvements

Thanks a lot for supporting us, you shouldn’t underestimate the impact you have with the pre-order. It gives us a real boost for development and reconfirms our efforts into innovation over something like boosting marketing and sales. Something we’re total noobs with. We sold more than 410 Lekker editions and more are going out every day. Before you know it, it’ll all be gone. That’s good news for the Lekker switch.

Speaking of, we visited different partner factories, checked out the switch assembly machine and confirmed a few final color samples. It’s crazy how complex colors can get once you do something else than black and white. We made a bunch of vlog material at the factories, which will release in due time. In the next update, we’ll take a closer look at the Rapid trigger feature, it’s a real game-changer.
