Ha. I didn't know that. I guess you could do a similar thing with shift and do Shift/Esc instead of Ctrl/Esc.

Interesting! A bit more ambitious than my own ideas, but looks very cool regardless. Is the blue button on the right side a space ordoyouplantotalklikethisforever? :P And is Nm a Function key? It seems a little daunting to me, but that's probably partially due to never having used Dvorak before. I ...

Goldilocks reduced size

Reading through the workshop posts and experimenting with KeyRemap4Macbook has got me thinking about building my own compact keyboard. Some of the 40% keyboards seem a little daunting to me, so I started thinking about a layout that would be smaller than a 60% layout, but would reduce the amount of ...

I think there are two separate questions here. 1. How much does the cost structure for producing Topre capacitive switches play into pricing? In other words, is the pricing driven by the cost of production or simply by what the market is willing to pay for the product? To this question, I have no id...

Wow. Great to see Keyboard Co. supporting the site.

Heh. The syringe is from when I had to clean off an open wound from surgery twice a day with peroxide.

The thing between the monitors is the support column for the Ergotron arms.

Apple Magic Trackpad

I feel like typing on my new RealForce, so I've decided to write some reviews. Last month, I had surgery on a finger on my right hand. This made it difficult/impossible to effectively use a standard mouse. Rather than gimping along or taking sick leave, I decided to purchase some pointing devices wh...

One additional brief comment on the keyboard ... The keypuller and keylocks provided with the 'board were top-notch. With a keylock in place, the key feels like it's just a part of the keyboard structure. The keypuller was fairly easy to use and effective.

No doubt, its still one of the best keyboards you can get. Leaving out the build quality and going entirely by the keyfeel the Topre just was not "mechanical" enough for my taste. A $15 keytronic is not much worse than a $250 Topre if you ignore the look and build quality. I think the "mechanical" ...

I found the blue LED lights way too bright on my 103ub, and ended up having to cover them with a movie ticket. Are the ones on the UW different? Maybe the black color provides that much more contrast that it's annoying? The blue LEDs on the 103U-UW don't seem any brighter than, say, the green LED o...

Topre Realforce 103U-UW First Impressions

Things have been fairly rough at work and my personal life, so coming home to a new keyboard was something of a refresher.
