Wow Ellipse, you don't do things by halves! I might as well make an ambit claim like __red__ and Vizir... sphericals would absolutely rock. I like the idea of sphericals too - but only if they look like they were made before I was born. Basically the aesthetics of a Honey Well or some other sexy vi...

I got in touch with hasu. Basically I asked him if he would be able to add SMK support to his 60% and was told the demand was too small; which I can understand. Since he provides everything needed in a Ki-Cad file how difficult would it be? Is it simply a matter of adding holes and traces to them? E...

Speaking of Alps, Does anyone know how to get a hold of hasu on GeekHack without becoming a member to that site?

So if you are making your own keycaps does this mean you will be able to make swappable control / capslock keys?

I've got a question that I think is brilliant and am sorry I didn't think of it until now ...

Is there a way to put a "lo-jack" type device in the keyboard - possibly powered by the keyboard itself - so that in the case of theft it can be tracked down by the authorities?

CM Bram,

You would probably also give everyone a great big boner if 55g domes were available to swap in.

Just a thought! :)

The final round closes 6/30/16 but you would need to wait until August/September for them to ship :( I prefer the additional delay so the factory workers can make sure everything goes out the door correctly and well packaged. Interestingly only 17 black unprinted key sets have been ordered, but 33 ...

This is why I'm exclusive with buckling springs.

People can talk all the crap they want about Unicomp; I'm willing to wager my 103 will outlast all your Cherry boards.
