Change the Reds tagline to
>It's a GAMERâ„¢ switch? Jack up the price!

Blues should be known as Babby's first switch because it's literally the most common cherry switch in existence.
Browns should be labeled as a compromise switch for people coming from rubber domes, because it feels like shit and satisfies nobody.

i see red on so many mech keyboards out there because the market for gamers is huge in comparison to the market of mech keyboard enthusiasts.

>It's a GAMERâ„¢ switch? Jack up the price!
I haven't noticed reds themselves being more expensive. They're just common on expensive gamer boards thanks to marketing.
>Blues should be known as Babby's first switch
They may be more common, but they're still respected enough that even snobs use them for years. It's also not a very useful thing to label it for unless you're a hipster.
>Browns should be labeled as a compromise switch
The yellow label clearly explains what's so bad about it.
The babby sticker is there because it lines up with all green labels. It's the most boring, normal yet shit thing you could pick. At least blues have some character with their click.

The HHKB.

Or something about form factors in combination with layouts (e.g. non-standard bottom rows)

Or different switch types like the other anon suggested.

Any experts here?

would it be possible to just put in like a Teensy or Arduino instead of the second PCB and have a perfectly working keyboard?

>> No.53436480

>>53436378
You could certainly do that with a teensy.

You just have to look at the PCB and check which connector corresponds to what row or column of keys so you can program it accordingly in the firmware (most people use Hasu's TMK firmware for this kind of stuff).

I've seen people do the same kind of stuff with old apple keyboards and an HHKB. There was also one guy with some alps SKCM board around here some time ago who did that kind of thing.

It's not the easiest thing to do, but it's far from impossible.

It's not a normal keyboard but one like this (but 8 rows), will that make it different when it comes to a teensy? I mean 120 buttons can you imput that?

>> No.53436611

>>53436508
That's not really a problem as long as you have enough pins on the teensy to hook up the cables coming from the pcb with. You just need to make an according keymap in the firmware, shouldn't be a problem at all on a hardware level.

>> No.53436700

>>53436633
Good news for you then: Almost all the work on the hardware level (e. g. a keyboard matrix and soldering) has been done for you already. All you have to do is attach those wires to a teensy, look at the PCB traces and configure your firmware accordingly.

Cheap tai-hao pbt caps show up on massdrop regularly for about 25 bucks. They're not amazing, but pbt for 25 bucks in a fun colorway isn't a bad deal.

Otherwise you can find a shitton of cheap stuff on taobao or aliexpress. Obviously it won't be amazing quality either.

Ok, if you've got a Razer you're gonna have to find special keycaps
If you look here: http://www.maxkeyboard.com/mechanical-keycap-layout-and-size-chart.html for Razer Blackwidow Chroma you'll find that the bottom row is custom as custom gets

So be sure to get something that fits.

Your keyboard has a nonstandard bottom row, you'll have trouble finding keycaps to acommodate for that.

>>53437067
The relegendable keys aren't sculpted at all, so to get an as real as possible feeling when hitting the keys I took some cherry doubleshots I got lying around.
I replaced the keycaps of the rest to go easy on them until I put them on a nice, actually good keyboard.
