I ended up ordering Cherry MX Clear switches. I intend to install LED lighting for the switches and under the board, will these switches come with translucent tops?
Also, are LED light "animations" i.e. pulsing/temporary changing brightness on press of certain keys possible?
MX clear switches have black housing, but the LED sits on top of the housing, so you don't need to worry about that. You do want to make sure the light can get through the keycaps though.
Animations are certainly possible. The LED driver chip in this thing is really quite powerful. Right now there isn't much support built into the firmware though. I'm working on it a bit in my free time, but I don't have any experience with programming micro controllers, so it might be a while before I get anything rolled out.
