A Dashing Set Full of ‘70s Nostalgia

In its heyday in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, Data General’s “Dasher” terminal was part of a computing powerhouse. As the mech keys community has been known to do with historic typing machines, the terminal has been resurrected in the form of the Dasher keycap set—a striking, two-toned blue colorway reminiscent of the Dasher’s iconic keyboard. Originally designed in SA profile by community member zslane, Dasher is making its comeback in our exclusive MT3 profile: a tall, curved profile with scooped tops. Known for its unique slant across each row, MT3 offers a typing experience like no other. To keep you engaged for years to come, the keycaps feature a doubleshot ABS construction with legends that won’t fade.

Feel the Difference of MT3 Profile

To understand the appeal of MT3 profile, you have to understand its history. Many old computer terminals were constructed with a slanted switch layout from front to back. Because of that slant, the keycaps sat at an angle atop the switches. MT3 profile is a reimagination of that unique slanted build, but optimized for modern keyboards. Based on iconic IBM beamspring terminals of the 1970s, it’s sculpted with a prominent curve that extends across each row. On top of that, MT3 features scooped keys to help orient your fingers on the keyboard. Thanks to some significant design work from Matt3o, 3D modeling, and a whole lot of elbow grease, we're proud to continue bringing this innovative profile to life.
