i do a lot of programming, and i have a swedish keyboard layout where the curly braces { } are awkward to type, so i have them on dedicated macro keys on the left which i can hit with my left little finger without leaving the home row. perhaps i could reuse the ÖÄ keys since i don't use them when programming, and maybe i could use caps lock and the key above tab for copy/paste, but i will have to think about it more before i get a keyboard without extra macro keys. i don't want to switch between layers or just key combos just for curly braces since i use them so much when programming.

Actually, I wanted a black Ducky One TKL with no backlight, but the store had nothing left with Brown Switches, and after looking for anything related I found the white one.
It wasn't in Ducky's website, so I emailed the store asking for more details. They told me it was legit, so I bought it.

While searching right now I found the Ruyi Bird (RuyiNiao) K-26, but I'm finding little info of it. Anyone has an idea of them?
Apparently they use Gateron switches (which are Cherry clones, right?), as either blue and black switches, sport an either white or black chassis, and I can set the backlight to a single fixed color (thank god for that at least).

Sadly, this is all I could find on them. Nothing on key rollover or even actual confirmation on switch type, for instance.

Cherry switches are plastic garbage. Plastic on plastic on plastic. Tactile cherry are absolutely disgusting to type on. Lubing helps, but then a Topre feels better anyways.

Alps are better in almost every way. Metal leaf springs, dampened or undampened. Higher actuation point for you gaming kiddies too.

Then we have Buckling Springs are superior over all of them for when you want actual mechanical typing experiences.

Best option looks like a custom 3D printed cap. Models of keycaps of all profiles are available online, and you should be able to easily modify an extension onto one (it'll probably only be a simple shape) and find someone to print it. If there's nobody local, maybe try shapeways.

That's a good thought actually. I've been using a TKL for a good year now, and a board with custom modifiers and F-keys and stuff with normal arrows before that. Maybe being on that pok3r for a while would make it a non-issue, given that you have to fudge around to get arrows anyway.

Interesting.

And cheers. I'll have to give the pok3r another look. After something a bit smaller I can get before uni. IIRC they're pretty simple to disassemble and paint, which is a plus. Going for enamel white and SA Chocolatier keycaps on my next board I think.

Nice, some time ago I thought it would be nice to have analog switches. Too bad the layout isn't ergonomic at all and PCB-mounted sensors will make making DIY keyboards a little harder. Also, I'm not sure if we can call them mechanical when they're using IR sensor. Supposedly Topre is also working on analog switches.

The switch consists of a slider in a housing over a rubber dome over a conical coiled spring over a printed circuit board. Switches are discrete components, but built as sheets.
The rubber dome provides most of the resistance and tactile feel. (Some Topre-switch keyboards also have differently weighted domes to compensate for individual finger strength, similar to the Key Tronic ErgoForce.)

Original original.
I found an old keyboard in the tech disposal bin of my uni (I was taking apart printers, looking for coils for a project), and there it was.
I don't remember the brand (leopard? Jaguar? It was an animal name for sure).
Piss yellow, battered. The cord was broken.
But the keycaps (double-shot, real nice) and the switches (old white alps) were good. I tried to restore it, but the pcb was hopeless. I kept it because I wanted to use the switches to build a keyboard from scratch, but sadly someone threw it to the trash thinking it was, well, trash.

Alps are not bad, but I wouldn't really say they were amazing. Maybe the modern replicas are better, but the originals were not amazing, I think.
