REALFORCE R2 "PFU Limited Edition" impressions thread

Thanks for the write up. Is this really Limited Edition or is R2 going to be the only one offered by Realforce in future?

Re: Geekhack sold to—probably—ZealPC

He said he has 3 mortgages. Imagine some Chinese offering enough to settle one of the mortgage. It’s a hard offer to refuse. As someone said up thread - go for gold iMav.

Re: Delete my account

If that’s the case, Deskthority will probably ceased to exists. It’s ok. We love it when you spend money on keyboards as compared to other sissy hobbies like audio.

Didn’t realize it is a AT pin instead of a PS/2! A serious keyboard hobbyist will probably have a shoe box full of cables, converters, and adapters. Forget a shoebox, far better to have a crate full of them, if you want to collect and use older keyboards ;) . I am ashamed of myself for not having a...

I like mine a lot. The switches do have to be broken in a bit though. I've had to really whack on some of them to register or kick loose and had a couple keys like control stick a bit. It's getting better as I use it more. At first, it wouldn't even keep up with my typing. Lots of skipped letters i...

Re: Crypto-currencies and Alt-coins

I have questions about mining though. It goes with the current price right? So my mining will yield me lower coins as the price increase. I'm not sure if I want to add hash power if that's the case.

Don't forget I'm comparing the MacBook Pro (touch bar) with my MacBook Air and the Air is thinner. So I don't understand why the Pro's keyboard has to be thinner!

Re: New Macbook Pro with Touch Bar

I just walked into a local Apple Store and boy, the Touch Bar is pretty cool but what the hell is wrong with the keyboard?! It's too flat. It's loud (and I love a buckling spring keyboard but it's loud even in the Store with so much noise) and it feels cheap! Seriously if I pay for that price, I do ...

Re: Best modern keyboard or company

Best modern keyboard in 2016 has to be the HHKB Bluetooth. HHKB is considered one of the best keyboards out there, Topre feel is one of its kind and now there is a Bluetooth version! For your Mac and iPad, wirelessly. And it runs on 2 AA batteries! How wonderful is this.

I expect a few Clacks to get nominated. ;) Can you give me some specific ones that you think are above and beyond the rest of his artwork? So we are also referring to his 2016 work, right?

Re: Best keycaps

I'd like to nominate EnjoyPBT - this set of key caps surprised me with its superb feel, beautiful legends (especially the Cyrillic set) and closeness to the classic beige colour. I'm not sure if I needed to post picture but it's just beautiful.

Re: Does the USB camera adapter for iPad still work with keyboards?

The USB hub shouldn't draw power when it's not being used, should he? A possible other explanation is, that the capacitive matrix of the HHKB requires a constant current, to recognise any possible keystrokes. That would explain the low battery life with the hasu bluetooth controller (which doesn't ...

Re: Does the USB camera adapter for iPad still work with keyboards?

I have no idea. That stupid USB hubs are useless anyway, I can't even plug a USB pen drive into it. What was going on in PFU's mind when they designed this? What a bummer that it renders the HHKB useless in this context. I'd love to get HHKB working with the iPad.

You are correct although that Reddit wiki is already 1 year old and is now archived. I was hoping that the new USB Camera Connection kit, which also have ability to input power might work.

So I bit the bullet and bought the $39 kit. My Korean custom 60% keyboard, 2TU did not work when just connecting to the USB port. But the beauty of this $39 port is that I could plug a lightning cable into it, thus supplying power to charge the iPad and to also power the USB device. This allows the ...

Thanks for informing it works with app. I brought my 2TU keyboard to the shop but unfortunately they refuse to let me test it. Damnit. I'm not sure I want to risk $39 so, I don't know. Shit out of luck, I suppose.

I use the adapter to connect a Pok3r to my iPad Air. Works like a charm. When you said it works, does it work across all apps or just Apple apps?
