Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

The label is the same as on my keyboard from the Leanord Elan computer. This one is obviously older, though.

Re: daskeyboard product management

I come across people who just want a MS Natural (Ergonomic 4000) clone but "mechanical" almost every day. Their options are extremely limited to the best of my knowledge. If they don't want to learn a different layout like ErgoDox, it's only Kinesis Freestyle Pro (Edge if they want backlight), Matia...

Re: daskeyboard product management

Das Keyboard was originally advertised to typists and I can get onboard with that for the most part: so, make an ergonomic keyboard. Okay, that might not have the mass appeal, but there's certainly a big demand for something like Microsoft Natural, which has been a mainstream success too. On technic...

Re: SafeType keyboard review (seriously, what the hell)

Probably the stupidest aspect of this keyboard, and Chyros doesn't mention it (I think), is that the vertical parts are at a fixed distance and in parallel… and you can't change it… and if you could change it, the mirrors would be even more useless. BTW the note about it being only black, while the ...

Re: Input Club Beamspring-like? new board

'Scratchiness' is a result of unevenness typically in the stem of 'linear MX switches'. It's visible in measurements like these (though I've seen comparisons of different generations of MX switches as well). Velocity might matter in more complex types of switches, but it's not impossible to measure ...

Re: Input Club Beamspring-like? new board

Force curve is just part of the story. The force curve on modern linear MX switches is the same as vintage MX, but they feel so much scratchier you can’t believe it side-by-side. That's recorded in the force curve, if the measuring device is set up accordingly. Then there’s things like materials an...

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

The whole argument is probably moot, because other people will give up as soon as they want to use arrows or any other key that isn't physically present or the layout places it somewhere else (e.g., thumb Shift). At that point, just leave a standard keyboard lying around. This is normal for specialt...

There are only alternative blank sets: both painted and unpainted, so you can paint/laser them by yourself, if you insist.
