Re: HHKB refresh in 2019?

Knowing PFU/Topre, there's virtually no chance of that happening.

Re: HHKB refresh in 2019?

As far as I know, Norbauer is working on a case for the Pro 2.

Noxary also has the Evija (also Pro 2) in the works:

Re: HHKB refresh in 2019?

I kinda hoped for MX stems, it didn't happen and I am not even mad about it. During the Shenzhen meetup: Q: Will HHKB be native MX caps compatible in the future? PFU: Yes! In the next or next next generation of HHKB, depends on users’ feedbacks I haven’t noticed such behavior, and to be honest I st...

Re: Tokyo60 v1 HHKB-like Keyboard Kit

Cookie, If you would like to get an approximate idea on how Zilent V1s can sound (obviously depending on the many factors going into the keyboard build/configuration) when broken in and tuned up, in my opinion these two videos do a rather good job at that: - Zephyr Sound & Typing Test with GMK Keyca...

I think if more people could try them, the popularity of the switch would really take off.
The popularity took off ages ago — Zeal's switches are very well known within the community. Love him or hate him he knows what he's doing with his products.

@ PixelNinja Oh god! You were right, 12 bucks for 10 mx clones... times have really changed! I wonder what makes them so pricey. I am not sure about the tactility of mx switches, I always liked the mx reds but after years and years of massive Topre fanboyism they feel very scratchy to me. I think I...

Re: Tokyo60 v1 HHKB-like Keyboard Kit

Cookie,

As of now you'll be hard pressed to find the Zilent V2s elsewhere than Zeal's store (brace yourself for that non-GB price). If you are looking for V1s they are now discontinued, so your best bet would be the second hand market.

IMHO the font used for the thread titles is not ideal — it's not very easy on the eyes and quickly becomes fatiguing when browsing the topics.

According to Zeal, the sale is confirmed. No mention on iMav's side of things.

I don't think we will be seeing those just yet as Topre is focusing on rolling out the JIS variants of their keyboards at the moment. ANSI is set to follow.

If they are going full tilt towards RGB Vegas Lighting, then I fear that ABS spacerbars will be it's future.
