Very nice prize. I wonder what Matteo calls them, in general? Like how Clackfactory has Clacks, Matteo makes…?

See, collectors gotta have a name! What else are you going to prowl the internet with? You can just tell these are only the beginning of his wares.

I'm sure he'll find a decent name for them, or it will develop on its own. I really hope to see more keycaps from matt3o, these look awesome so far.

You could put them as "prize"s in a cereal box and call them Matt-e-Ooooos.

(My cunning plan is coming along well: to prompt him to come up with a name before one of ours sticks!)

if we really have to find them a name I would call them "bots"... but there's already "brobot"... so maybe I should come up with something better

Here is a photo, please excuse the bad image quality. My camera is out of charge, so I had to take the photo with my phone.

glad you like them Nuum!

beware that the arc reactor has a specific direction. The bottom bolt should line up with the side stripe.

Cheers!

Interesting keycap puller you have. Was it curved like that when you got it?

Nope, it wasn't. It's one of the first keyboard related items I ever bought and as foolishly as I was I got it underneath a PCB-mounted switch and pulled quite hard. As it slipped of the switch the keycap I was intending to pull flew across the room and I found it three days later. That's why there is a kink in the wires.
Also, since I pulled some larger keycaps with it, the two parts are a little bit too far away from each other, but it was curved when I bought it new.
