Low Profile Cherry Switches, Anyone?
Just wanted to drop this in here: http://www.guru3d.com/news-story/cherry-releases-new-mx-low-profile-rgb-high-precision-switch.html
" Cherry is announcing the MX Low Profile RGB. A shallow switch that features a brand-new design with a low profile. This allows the implementation of mechanical keys in a much more compact format, making the CHERRY MX Low Profile RGB suitable not only for use in notebooks but also for building unusually thin high-end keyboards.
The CHERRY MX Low Profile RGB is the first truly new development in mechanical switches in more than 30 years. The company's R&D department has invested a lot of time and effort in achieving a total height of only 11.9 millimeters without compromising on characteristics and quality. The MX Low Profile RGB is about 35 percent shallower than the standard MX switches, and thanks to its unique design it can be used just as easily for mechanical keyboards in high-end notebooks as for unusually thin mechanical desktop keyboards. The new CHERRY switch was fully developed and built in Germany, its the "Made in Germany" seal representing the best product quality and the highest manufacturing precision. "
- More info in the link - thought it was cool.
I saw this and it got me thinking I might want to try swapping one of my #pads switches out to low-pro's or something, might be kinda fun.
*Edit* - Just realized that it appears the dimensions of the bottom are different between the Low-Pro's and the normal ones, so maybe you can't swap them out D: That'd be a shame.
