Not working :o That's pricey. Hopefully it can be brought back to it's former glory. It would at least make a neat display piece.

Damn it! I've been looking for one of these for so long. This is literally my end game keyboard. You can't ask for more than a relegendable 122 key beamspring.

I'm so salty about this.

Nicolet Instrument Spectrometer Keyboard

https://www.ebay.com/itm/184073109259

Looks like Oak full-travel with blue double shots. And high-end rotary encoder on the side. Missing key probably a deal breaker.

Coincidentally(?) just a few days after a mixed (+ cool looking, + solid build quality, ± weird layout, - crap switches, - doesn't work with Soarer's) review of one of these by Chyros.

Here is another one with way more dials. Same switches though.

Going to admit, I was willing to go up to $1K for it, but I gave up when it got to $1K because I realized that the guy put in his max bid probably well beyond I was willing to pay. So I didn't want to be a dick and raise it even more

Felt bad that I got it up to $1K =/...sorry about that whoever bought it

Hi webwit, are you telling us it's a piece not between your own belongings? Noah, I don't believe you!

Haha I don't have that one, and it's very nice, but I'm trying to get less, not more ;)
P.S. The Internet says it's the heaviest desktop ever at 48 kg. That would explain the pickup only.

Wow. Even full of bricks it doesn't seem like it would weigh that much.

If nothing else, this seller's listings have some pretty great teardown photos.

On the one hand, I'm sort of intrigued if it has super-robust build quality (like an old CH DT225 trackball or the original PS/2 mice). On the other hand, most Soviet consumer electronics weren't that competitive to begin with. (I've heard some of their very best hi-fi stuff was comparable to mid-line Japanese)

I wonder what's going on behind the funky connector-- if it's designed for a nominally PC-compatible machine, maybe it speaks a familiar protocol where it could be wired through a chain of adapters to a modern machine, but it could equally well be wired to run on odd voltages or require a unique driver that only existed for PTS-DOS in 1990.

I own one myself, easily adapted and plugged with teensy 2.0. The UNDO (CTRL+Z) Key is unpayable!

I beg your pardon, even though it'd seem a non sense referring to an MX black as tactile and not linear, these late '90s version MX blacks, so gummy on actuation made me think of them as they were tactile. :idea: : climbing-mirror

I got one of these from the same seller in worse condition. Expect crappy packaging and to pour dirt out of the case.
