The first-ever custom set for our first-ever custom profile, MT3 /dev/tty is a collection of keycaps that invoke old-school computing and retro typing. Now, this trailblazing throwback set is returning for a third round—with a few updates worth mentioning. Those include expansions to the Base Kit, Triumph Kit, and Lost and Found Kit, as well as several small legend refinements across the set. As always, you’ll find a satisfying spread of beige-grays with occasional splash of color, depending on which kit you choose. On every kit, your fingertips will be treated to our exclusive MT3 profile, which features scooped keycap tops and a sculpted shape between rows to create a vintage typing feel with a modern flourish. (After all, “tty” stands for “teletype” or “teletypewriter”—and the entire name is a subtle nod to a certain file type for Linux users.) There’s never been a better time to type /dev/tty.
Our first-ever exclusive profile, MT3 is a reimagining of retro typing experience—with a look and feel that’s made for the modern user. Designed in collaboration with Matt3o, it’s based on the original beamspring terminals from the 1970s and heavily sculpted: meaning the contour from row to row forms a concave shape, designed to minimize finger travel. Each MT3 keycap also sports a scooped top: a nod back to beamspring terminals, with a slightly refined shape to better fit today’s boards. Made from durable PBT with dye-sublimated legends, keycaps in the MT3 /dev/tty Keycap Set will last so long, they may become more than just retro-inspired.
