Ahhh, this is great stuff, thank y'all for your input! Keyboard.io gives you one palm button for each hand. But this nifty device can easily give you three per hand. Even elbow keys could now become a thing!! Now I'll just have to find one in reasoably appealing condition...

Oh my F***ING G*d!

Just saw this 'Creative Labs Prodikeys DM' keyboard (!) for the first time ever. If I could somehow program those musical keys, this would be sort of like a wet dream of my keyboarding "career"! Does anyone know if that's at all possible - or do they just produce sound from some internal speaker? Ma...

Re: 'Vaporfly' switches - I want'em!

Thanks for chiming in! It would seem then that while concial springs could approximate what I want, the MX platform isn't designed to accomodate them. Spirit's progressive springs therefore achieve progression with a fixed diameter but increasing distance between coils; not sure what the technical t...

Re: 'Vaporfly' switches - I want'em!

Yes, a non-linear spring would do that, except non-linear springs don't exist according to this very interesting bit of keyboard science that I just managed to dig up. This supports Bjerrk's and my contention above that, really, a second element (spring, foam or whatever) is needed to properly manag...

Well, the idea is that it should be bouncy rather than mushy. There is a difference...

Tactility isn't what I'm talking about as it is supposed to signal actuation rather than the physical end of the movement so it is usually placed far above the switch's bottom.

Re: 'Vaporfly' switches - I want'em!

Yeah, of course, a second spring might work even better than something involving foam, though it would mean a complete switch redesign as opposed to just sticking some kind of foam in or around the switch somwhere . I have a feeling that a leaf spring might be particularly well suited to the task, b...

Thanks for your input.

Re: Colleagues say my keyboard is too loud...

Get those O-rings if you're set on keeping your current setup for a cheap and quick fix. If hardware can be changed, I second XMIT's praise of box switches in general and the silent browns in particular.

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

The G80 version of the 8038 is not a Cherry model, but a modification made by a third party (don't remember the name at the moment), according to which they make them only with MX browns.
