Oh please, that is the Space Cadet keyset!

And yes, now everyone understands why it is the best ever. When my caps arrive, my board will look like this:

Hmmm this is confusing me to the max, usually 7bitbot shipping takes around 49 months...

On a less grumpy note; nice set indeed! Hmm if I order now...

I do live in Germany and made "other experiences" with his shipping. Of course he's not the only one selling nice keycaps.

I know virtually nothing about custom keycaps, I think I heard of a set like this a while ago come to think of it, but I thought that was long gone. Is this an on-going thing? =o

The history, as I understand it, is this:

1. 7bit's Round 4 gets a Space Cadet colorway added (called "SPH"), the only spherical set in a GB otherwise comprised of DCS keycaps. 7bit announces his intention to eventually create the special Space Cadet legends for a future GB.

2. xblackdog is inspired by this to create Symbiosis, which has the greek characters as secondary alpha legends, but suffers from being uniform R3 and somewhat "inaccurate" in other minor ways.

3. 7bit completes the Space Cadet legends and makes them the centerpiece of the Round 6 (formerly known as Round 5a) group buy.

The Round 6 group buy also included a re-run of the Round 5 Honeywell colors, but due to funding complications, only the Space Cadet (blue/gray) and purple/cream keycaps from Round 6 have been produced so far. They are shipping to customers as we speak.

As for being an "on-going thing," that is only true to the extent to which there are blue/gray leftovers from Round 6 still available for people to snatch up.

Nice board! why the shift legends do not match?

Upon my admiration to the legendary Space-cadet keyboard, this is the endgame key set that I have already missed.

:( The shift key is from the ISO kit. There was no Cadet ISO kit with black legend 1.25u shift. I didn't pay attention to this one enough, might have missed a single 1.25u cadet shift key...

Edit: there was never a 1.25u cadet space :(

Yeah. MX mount is so passé. When are we getting Topre and buckling spring? (I'd add beamspring, but their stock caps are what SA is trying to impersonate in the first place.)
