I'm bumping this thread to hear if anyone has seen reports from it? Any news about possible updates to the HHKB BT? I'd love if they added the possibility to run it via USB, or hide the batteries internally :) The main takeaway from the event was the collaborative Realforce they put out. The red HH...

Previously unseen Chinese Realforce sublegends

I recently came across something that piqued my interest - a few people are aware of the Realforce 103Us that came with Zhuyin sublegends many years ago that 002 has documented on the wiki - from what i know these were primarily marketed in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Macau. They seem to be very difficult...
