Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

Saw this in a "viral" video stop motion of a man eating his previous keyboard. Anybody got an idea as to what this board may be?

Just've made bluetooth firmware for this thing (BLE/Gazell timesharing), maybe it could revive this IC.

The only minor note - vertical ФУНК looks crammed in, it's okay to use shorter ФУН instead.
The opposite about УД - он 1.5u keys it's okay to use УДАЛ

It's rather КГБ - soviet era, ФСБ - post-ussr. And I love the idea about the cross and maybe even Putin. Either his face or a "Put In" key. Also what about sculpted SA profile, is it harder to manufacture, is it more expensive for the buyer?

I'm ok with ВШ instead of ЗАБОЙ because the former is apparently standard and I can't find keyboards with "ЗАБОЙ" though it's very literal and accurate. Also it would be nice to have russian novelties, such as СБ (служба безопасности, security service) and ФСБ (Federal Security Service) such as here...

Just to clarify things you asked.

Absolutely you can't. It's rather ЗАБОЙ. You have to be super accurate with russian unless you're intentionally making a hollywood-style absurdity. Better get a reference soviet era keyboard.

After getting a second HHKB I started wondering why it feels so much better than the dentalbanded one. Got a digital caliper and measured dental bands I used on my old HHKB for an year and a half. They ought to be 1mm thick! I thought they're 0.6-0.8 mm, tops. That's why it felt so nasty. So yeah, g...

Did you ever remove the domes from the PCB? The underside of the PCB looks quite different from any Topre I've ever seen. Ofc, though I'd better glue them to the board, it's a huge PITA when it all falls apart, almost lost a couple of springs while swapping keyswitch boards. Springs and domes are t...
