Re: NMB RT101+

NIce! I love mine- it seems to be a mid-transition board that has the newer style case, but the older, stepped keycaps as yours has. NMB really did make some amazing shit back in the day.

Re: The World is going Pro

Sounds slightly similar to the clicky HTK Switches I have in an old board- quite a unique switch as well.

Re: Who knows about this switch?

These are Oak Full Travel Membrane switches, meaning that, like the Model M, they use a membrane sheet underneath the keys, instead of a PCB. I've always been interested in trying these out- how are they, I assume not too great? The wiki has a little write-up on them: https://deskthority.net/wiki/Oa...

There might be a couple of boards in there worth having. I do see an MCK 500, which should be an Ortek with white alps or clones. I definitely would not say that they are all trash.

The font, the lock LEDs, and the metal backplate all suggest foam and foil.
Yep! The only way I could tell is the keycap font. I know the early XT space invader boards had a near identical case and backplate, but the font is definitely the giveaway here.

Re: Unknown Brand Keyboard on Ebay

When I first saw it I got linear space invader vibes, but looking closer at it I am 99% positive it is foam and foil, probably linear. I can tell due to the very distinct font.
