[Photos] Alps chicklet keyboard on membrane

Thought this might be of interest. My Tomy Tutor computer (from 1983) has an Alps keyboard but not what you might expect :) It is a chicklet pressure sensitive membrane keyboard.

Here are some pics.

Nice, I had no idea that Alps ever made any chiclet style boards like this.

I proxy anything, including keyboards (キーボード / 鍵盤), from both Japan (日本) and China (中國). For more information, you may visit my dedicated webpage here: https://www.keyboards.es/proxying.html

Man, the color scheme of the board fits perfectly with the chicklet keys! What an awesome looking board! How does it feel btw?
