What is your Perfect Keyboard?

more_vert
This isn't a question asking if you could have any keyboard what would it be, i'm asking what is your ideal keyboard. My ideal keyboard would be something with a small form factor that is still very functional. Massdrop has already sold many of these keyboard such as the ever so popular Planck, one of my favorite keyboards, I told you my ideal keyboard whats your perfect keyboard I'd love know. :)

usb-c 65% QMK thick plate, aluminum body. I have a couple that meet this criteria, they just a lil spendy. DZ65RGB is my fave board currently. Currently running one with T1's and MT3 suswatari and love that board. My second fave is a gk61 with holy pandas and sa laser.

For gaming, take the Wooting One and give me a steel plate and aluminum body. Black body and black double shot PBT keycaps. Flaretech Black switches.
For typing, probably the GON Ns NerD 108 but with a steel plate and double shot PBT grey keycaps, and Wooting One level RGB LED customization. Cherry MX Clear switches.

That or the tokyo60 but when the laser alt was running I didn't wanna be limited by the colour. If the Tokyo drops again I'll jump on it.

If you up your budget 20 bucks you can buy DZ65RGB from KBDFans. They're in stock, you might have to sign up and go on the list though if I don't sign in they won't let me order if I do it shows every color in stock, I have two of them currently great boards.

Why not just get a 60% and a macropad?

Something like the Dactyl Manuform but without any of the thumb cluster switches behind each other, and a premade case so that I don't have to 3D-print it.

64% with a metal frame, bluetooth and wired, and above all, a trackpoint--without asking me to pay $300 for it and build it myself...

Same as the Gigabyte Force K85 : - full size - trimmed right around the keys (no excess, no palm rest) - floating keys design - static colour, or off (the other modes and effects are not necessary for me)
BUT with : - all characters moved to the top of their key cap, over the led - all the key caps with 2 characters, have the characters side-by-side at the top of their key cap, over the led (like the row of numbers on the Sharkoon Skiller Mech SKG3) - per key true RGB colour selection (not just a few colours), by entering the 6-digit hex colour number on the numpad (yes, even for the numpad keys) and with per 2-digit hex pair (R, G, or B) up down adjustment via the arrow keys - copy/repeat last colour in per key RGB mode - super fine brightness configuration - all configuration possible on the keyboard itself, no software (just built in a Pi or Pine64 SBC) - super key caps for Windows, Linux, and OS X (FFS, how much cost can this add?) - characters on key caps should not wear off - no finger print magnet - Cherry MX Clear switches (not a must though; other MX, or MX compatible is also OK) - sturdy aluminium top plate - firm plastic housing at the bottom - grippy rubber feet at the bottom of the keyboard (when pushing against the keyboard), but come off easy (when lifting the keyboard)

If you're talking absolutely ideal, why not go for a full aluminum housing with a brass top plate?

Bluetooth TLK but with the arrow/insert/pg keys section on the left side of the keyboard. That way I can have my typing area centered with my monitor without crossing over onto my mousepad. I’d also be able to use the arrow keys and shift/alt + arrow keys with my left hand without having to take my right hand off the mouse - would be sooo good for After Effects / Illustrator work.

My perfect keyboard works with a font generating software. Pressure sensitive keys allows me to inflect emotion into my messages. Harder strike, or push longer might make the font more spiky, and slower, softer strike might make it more billowy. Holding a key in a direction could have other effects on the font. For form factor, I’d prefer a ‘just the basics’ but low enough profile that I can use with a tablet. Ironically, I like using laps but find small kbd wobbles, so, a fold-out cover could allow me to use my lap on a platform, then have it protected for travel.
