Both pics are of the same board, just different plates and keysets.

Thanks, basically some of the nicest I own. Too bad I don't even know what the case for that keyboard looks like. :roll:

either my 360c or HHKB. I'll vote HHKB because I did the work myself (purple sliders, 55g domes, lube), not really ricey but its quite different from stock :lol:

Artisans are like the carbon fiber hood scoops of the keyboard world.

I really... can't wrap my head around typing on split keyboard?

How long does it take to get used to it?

I'll take a video tonight. It was quite quick, I'd say about 2 months of 5 days a week working on the keyboard got me up to speed with the keyboard. After about 4 months of using it I switched to Colemak then another 3 months later I moved all the symbols under a "layer" which is just like a special shift or Alt-Gr button that is fully programmable. Note that I am a web developer and spend 8 hours a day on my computer.

I'd say they are more like the spinning wheel rims of the keyboard world. Except twice as gaudy and less than half as cool.

It doesn't help that most of them look like the little kiddie toys you get from a Cracker Jack box. :roll:

Agreed, but let's make one honorary exception for DT's sake:

There is a story of one being sold once but since I don't know the details I cannot divulge.

I kinda want one of those multi colored clear resin artisan keycaps, the ones that are just the size and shape of a normal cherry profile keycap. Like a tastefully done body kit for your 96 Toyota Camry.

The company that manufactured these caps for the (hall effect?) switches of this keyboard must have gone bankrupted because none of the modern manufacturers are kind enough to use so much materials to create key caps with comparable thickness - that is how they make profit perhaps.

Remember that hardware was much more expensive in the 1970's and 1980's.
