July 2021 Update
The 3x8 switch mod plates fit perfectly inside their updated Brush Kit V2, which I noticed after buying the V1 unit. It's a great value piece of kit and has enough space for your lube, films, other tools and of course, the mod plate.
More products will be listed in the future, as well as products going to other vendors. If you would like larger mod plates, I custom cut these to order, check out the Switch Testers page for more info.
A long project has recently been completed, two custom high profile tented wireless cases for the Sofle V1 PCBs (what a mouthful). I will be making simpler cases for the Sofle V1 and V2 in the future to go with PCBs sold by Custom KBD.
Tented iris cases are available right now as well, just send me a message on discord. The iris page on this site is sorely in need of updating.. i'll get around to it soon™.
In the mean time, I have an imgur album with pics and info: https://imgur.com/a/0V3lUTj
Switch films are still available from the treehouse.
Updated the site a bit and added some new pages, actually installed custom fonts and changed styling. Been meaning to do that for years. Also been meaning to get an actual laser ninja domain instead of using my personal 'kennui.com' domain.
There's so many awesome platforms and technologies including the pervasive squarespace, but for now, i'm going to keep on truckin. I don't plan on setting up a store as I want to sell to vendors more than selling directly myself. Some pages will still be out of date like the iris page, sorry for that. Anyway, it is what it is. Thanks for reading.

23rd April 2021
My switch films are now on the treehouse, fulfilled from their warehouse.
They have a cheap letter postage option (cannot be combined with other items). It can however be combined with other AEBoards items from the warehouse (click on Makers menu then AEBoards).
Note: the site defaults to USD currency, you can change it to AUD in the top right corner.
September 2020 Update
Hello friend, I apologise for the lack of updates. I will be posting major updates on instagram as well as snippets of what i'm up to or into on my insta story, appreciate the follow - instagram.com/laser_ninja_kb.
I've updated my contact page to also be an about page. Please direct all enquires to discord. If i've missed your message, feel free to bump it, I won't mind.
The lasercave is being upgraded to handle production and order fulfilment better. Space is limited so working out a more efficient floorplan/layout was important, my materials and supplies were all over the place before.
Regarding product releases - I will be selling some products on Keyboard Treehouse, a community focused store created by AEboards. I'll be listing smaller items initially.
I've sourced and tested an excellent new material to use as rubber feet (where the keyboard rests). The previous rubber pads I used were good, but I wanted to fine tune the properties, in particular the hardness and to get a custom size made. What I had now is perfect - good grip, high hardness to withstand very heavy boards without budging and slightly larger to give it better overall adhesion. These are aspects I pay close attention to because I want to design the best stand possible (within reason).
Hardware will also be changed from M3 to M4 - this will make it easier to grip the square nuts, which I found to be a bit finnicky. They're easy to drop and simply moving up one metric size makes it so much easier to handle, improving the assembly experience.
Unfortunately, it will likely be exclusively sold with the upcoming Constellation custom keyboard by AEboards. More details to come.
13th October update: Finally got my order of premium frosted acrylic and will be pumping out as many as I can by the weekend. I'll be dropping my stock off at the Keyboard Treehouse HQ to be sold with the Constellation public release. If you bought a constellation earlier in the F&F round, sorry that I didn't get this out in time.
Tented Iris Case (for V4 PCBs)
There has been a lot of interest in my tented case design and I have an updated version of my 2018 first release. New and improved hardware has also been sourced, which arrived recently.
I'll be making a list of all the people who have contacted me and offer the case first to those who have waited the longest. Get in contact if you're interested in a case.
1st October update: Forgot to order screws for the tenting system and china is away for autumn festival. If i'm lucky, I can submit delivery once I receive them at my proxy. This is the last piece of hardware I need before I start taking orders. I've also got some 10mm black, white and frosted acrylic coming in so i'll be able to do those for mid layers.
A big photo album is being prepared so that all the options are thoroughly shown. Thank you for your patience.
13th October update: Compiling acrylic colour options and photos. High profile design also completed. I'll be making a big chart of renders to show off colour combos because it can be hard to visualise.

Switch Modding Plates
Frosted acrylic seen in photos is unavailable for the time being, so I will be offering gloss clear at a small discount. These are made to order with info on the Switch Testers page. Message me on discord to order.
An improved model will be listed on Keyboard Treehouse when I restock frosted acrylic. This has a new feature - the ability to clamp lube tubs to the plate so they don't move around. It supports different sized tubs as well. A simple solution that I hope you'll appreciate.
I haven't announced this or even talked about it anywhere. For the past month+ I have been developing my own switch film.
My films have a distinct shape to identify them and good compressibility. Other films may be too thin or too thick, leading to loose films or making it difficult/impossible to close the switch. The thickness of my material should be a good middle ground to support most if not all switches.
Hong Hobbies has been an immense help during the testing phase. He is a fellow enthusiast who provides a switch modding service and has a lot of experience with the switch films on the market. Expect to see my films offered through Hong Hobbies soon. Release on treehouse will be around mid september.
Fellow aussie enthusiast Idyllic has a great video on switch films, check it out - https://youtu.be/RiecBEnHYPA
13th October update: I have decided to remove the LED hole from the design. A small stock with LED holes will be available at a higher price to those who wish to solder in through-hole LEDs. Production is ongoing and will launch soon™.
