Saying that MX Reds feel like Topre is like saying that fish tastes kind of like steak.

Topre feels like a really good and consistient membrane keyboard. It's comparable to older membrane keyboards except that it's lighter and the key registers half-way down. The feeling isn't guaranteed to wow you in the same way that an MX switch might. Best way I can describe the feeling is "pleasant and unintrusive".

A rubber dome has a conductive nipple underneath it that needs to make contact with a membrane, hence why you should be calling it a membrane and not a rubber dome as the rubber is just a part of the actuation. It'd be like calling a cherry MX switch a "spring" switch, you're just naming a single part of a system when you should be addressing the system as a whole. With Topre there is no nipple, but a capacitive spring that is always in contact with a board. Topre is considered mechanical due to the requirement that the spring that causes the change in capacitance must be compressed. A rubber dome (or membrane as it's correctly called) has no physical change to cause an actuation. Membranes have to simply touch each other to actuate and this is not dependent on the rubber domes. Again Topre uses the spring to actuate and not the rubber domes (or cup rubber as the officials like to call it) so calling them rubber domes when the domes itself don't do any of the actuation is absurd.

First of all, there exist two types of rubber dome switches, neither of which work as you described in the first part of your post.

The typical rubber dome switch that you come across in most modern keyboards uses two membrane sheets which are separated by a sheet of plastic which has cutouts for the membrane contacts. When you bottom out on the rubber dome, a small rubber nipple presses the two membrane sheets together.

A variant you typically find in older rubber dome keyboards is the rubber dome with the conductive pad. These domes have a conductive pad that presses down on a second pad which is on a PCB. Technically, you could have NKRO like you do on regular mechanical keyboards with these.

Furthermore, rubber dome =/= membrane

Topre does indeed not rely on physical contact when it comes to the actuation, but saying that topre is a rubber dome with a spring is not incorrect in the slightest. It's fairly accurate actually.
Referring to topre as a rubber dome is omitting some information as to how it works, but I'd argue that this still is valid since the rubber dome is what gives the switch almost all of it's weight and tactile feel.

>> No.58619079

techkeys for gaterons
aliexpress for keycaps
banggood for the GH60 PCB

There are also kits on ebay that include everything but the keycaps for 100 bucks

>> No.58620484

>Except they don't.
So why enable them? A lot of people come here looking to be spoonfed, just don't do it and let they do their own research instead. There's plenty of information on the OP for that. Those are the same kinds of people who then come back here later complaining that mechanical keyboards are shit because they made a bad uninformed choice.

I'm not saying the pastebins can't and shouldn't have more added to them, quite the contrary, but I think the buying template is pretty thorough as long as people actually use it properly.

>> No.58620513

>for 100 bucks

That's too much.

The switches should be about 15€ at most. I have no idea about the PCB, but could a pcb and a keyset cost about 80€? I'm really reaching for the shittiest materials here.

>> No.58620538

let's split is super cheap for a pcb diy keyboard, gaterons are cheap enough and good, so if you don't fuck up too bad you will have fun with it.

>> No.58620579

The 100 buck kits have an anodized aluminum metal plate and a plastic case as well as either cherry or gateron switches. The PCB comes pre soldered and is fully programmable.

If you really want to cheap out you can get a gh60 plate for 15 bucks some gateron switches for 20, some resistors for $2 and then you handwire the whole thing to an arduino

>> No.58620640

I want to solder too, part of the experience.

How much is the arduino/teensy? I'm looking at prices around 15$ after a brief search.

That would make

>plate - 15
>switches - 20
>resistors - 2
>teesny - 15

>total - 52

Not bad. I think I could still cheap out on the switches, though. Also, keycaps are a bitch, too expensive.

>> No.58620686

You can get cheapo pad printed keycaps bucks on elitekeyboards

>> No.58620708

the cheapest keycaps are the ones you salvage from used boards. just make sure they are pbt.

>> No.58620749


I no caps I can salvage.

I can see pbt sets on aliexpress for as low as 9€. Seems like a good deal.
Also forgot to say, I'm from Europe so I will refrain from ordering from the USA

>> No.58620763

Get a used cash register for like 20 bucks that way everything is already done for you, then cut it up and turn it into whatever layout you want, or desolder the cherry switches and use them and the keycaps

While trying to get out the sliders I broke some of the black pieces.
Now they don't hold on to their rubber pads as well. The keyboard still feels and works correctly.
