Kinesis Advantage PBT Keycaps
more_vert
EDIT: I'm not longer planning on doing this. Feel free to leave interest here in case someone else wants to pick this up. I bought Ducky PBT double-shots and they've been great. Some tips if you do the same:
Use the ]} for the 3# key so it's the right profile. Likewise, use the KP8 key for 8* instead of the 8* key. Use alt/ctrl/win as the modifier keys on the left and right. Use KPenter and KP0 for the thumb buttons. Ask mechanicalkeyboards.com (where I bought my keys) for an extra KPenter/KP0 if you order from them, they were able to help me out with that for an extra $5. I decided to leave some keys properly labeled rather than have them be mislabeled and PBT. I don't know of where to get tall PBTs, so those are still OEM.
Here's what mine looks like:

Hey all,
I'm just gauging interest here for now, but how many of you would be interested in buying a PBT Keycap set from Signature Plastics? The price would likely be ~$100 plus or minus depending on # of buyers.

Also, your FAQ is 401. The set looks nice! A set w/ legends would be fantastic.

Hey signed up to Massdrop just to say I'm interested! How long do you think it's going to take to get enough people to place an order? I'm sure plenty of people are interested in this.

I actually ordered a set of Ducky Doubleshot PBT caps. They cover most of the keys. It's not perfect, but I don't think I was going to be able to get a perfect SP set either, so I think this is as good as it's going to get. Unless someone else wants to take this over, I'd say it's dead. Sorry!

ALF DC60
ALF's DC60 has completed an alpha run private GB and an international GB in GH. DC60 features an elegant and pragmatic design with a myriads of customization opportunities. Given the current success, it is ALF's ambition to take it one step further to make it available for more customized keyboard fans. Therefore, we'd like to share the design and information about this project to the Massdrop community, to gather feedback, to prepare for a possible collaboration with Massdrop if enough people are interested. Let us know what you think! And maybe it will happen on Massdrop! [image] DC60 features a tray mount design, with a case, a plate (CNC alu or brass), and a highly customizable PCB. This PCB allows for layouts such as standard ANSI, Standard with arrow clusters, Split shift with 2u left Shift, Split Backspace, Minila, and more! Here is one with Minila layout: [image] 10 different colors are currently available, including a much-anticipated Everest white color. I will...

THINK6.5° -- Polycarbonate 65% Keyboard
Hey my keeb friends, it's your boye oldcat here, to present a design in collaboration with airpotter from Gray Studio. Krauth summarized René Descartes' philosophy succinctly, "That cannot doubt which does not think, and that cannot think which does not exist. I doubt, I think, I exist." As a fan of and heavily influenced by Descartes' Philosophy, I combined the key term with some design choices of this board, and named it "Think6.5°". Think6.5° has been more than 3 months in the making, and the prototype is currently being made. I think it is a good time to gather some final feedback for a potential production version. My original plan was to make about 10 boards (at a relatively high price) for myself and friends, but PCB maker is not willing to just make 10. Potter asked me about doing a GB to lower cost of production, if enough people in the community are interested. So here it is:  [image] [image] [image] [image] Motivations and Design Choices 1. It is a design that I...

Doro67, 4mm integrated plate 65% keyboard
Hello friends of Massdrop, We are happy to present to you Doro67, an integrated plate 65% customized keyboard set. The test run of this keyboard will be in ALF discord, and possibly GH, if there is enough interest, we will talk to Massdrop and make it happen for more people! Doro67's look is inspired by RAMA's M65A. The purpose of this design to build an aesthetically simplistic everyday workhorse keyboard. To achieve consistent keypress feedback, Doro67 adopts an integrated plate that is 4mm thick, which is compatible with a few layouts. In order to achieve a comfortable typing experience with high-profile keycaps such as the SA caps, Doro67 applies a lower keyboard profile (height) than a majority of the keyboards on the market. Further, to keep a stable connection, the USB connector will use a separate sub-board from the PCB. One key design feature of this keyboard is the 4mm integrated plate. [image] [image] Features: 1. 6061 Aluminum Case 2. 4mm Integrated Plate 3. QMK...
