After 5 years working as a keycap maker, this is the first time I try to make a cherry profile spacebar, yes, the spacebar in cherry profile…
a bit of history
What do we talk about when we talk about 8-bit? Well, there’s one thing we’re sure that it was, has been, and will ever be the golden era of the gaming world. Flashback 37 years ago, we wanted you to take a trip down memory lane, to reminisce about the very first time you held your console that’s taking the world by storm during that time and marking the start of the third generation of video game consoles. This period saw the dawn of 8-bit handheld consoles originated from Japan, and their legendary games coming along.
another world unravelled
To human’s eyes, the 8-bit gaming world seems to be only presented with the more improved visual and sound capabilities than the previous generation, but somewhere in 1983, up in...

This is my dream combo for my desk, hope to make it a reality soon.
May from the Gray Studio has designed and prototyped a premium, 60-key CNC milled, acrylic switch lubing station. The lubing station has been optimized a few iterations and prototyped to work very nicely with various switches.
Potter will consider holding a GB on Graystudio.club soon if there is enough interest. The cost will be a bit higher than 3D-printed ones but affordable.

Hello keeb friends,
It's been a while since the Think6.5 GB! Hope you are doing well and staying healthy.
I have started this design last year but was not able to start an IC due to personal reasons. Now things are much better, I now decide to start an interest check for R2 Think6.5 named '2020.' For those of you who are curious about how the R1 design looks like, here is the original IC: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=99634
Importantly, please let me know if you prefer the original badge position or the new badge position. And board material suggestions. Any questions, please feel free to ask. And welcome any constructive feedback.

Updating more details:
1. Mounting: Gasket-mount. Designed a new type of gasket design that I am personally very excited about (more details to come)
So I'm going back and forth between using Drop's config utility and QMK Configurator. While it's great that Drop has toggles to select between underglow, backlight and both (something that qmk configurator lacks), they don't have key choices to change hue and saturation? Something that QMK has.
It's incredibly frustrating that a few extra key options for lighting couldn't be coded in.
Thank you for purchasing your Drop SHIFT Mechanical Keyboard. We hope you’re enjoying it so far. If you’ve landed here, you probably want to take full advantage of the keyboard’s features so you’ve come to the right place.
We’ll start with the basics, then we’ll move on to complete custom configuration.

When I try and install firmware to the alt using the mdloader, it just tells me that no port could be found. I've tried different cables, different USB ports, all with the same end result of it not working. I'm at my wits end and I don't really know what else I can do at this point, has anyone else had this issue and fixed it?
Hey all, hope you’re doing well. With this installment of Creator Spotlights, we have officially become a weekly serialization! If you’re a first time reader, this is where I scour the internet and find all sorts of mechanical keyboard content creators - video, written, or audio - and share them here with you. My hope is that you find interesting content while helping creators in the mechanical keyboard community grow!
Without further ado here is this weeks around up!
Why can’t I hold all these switches? With so many switches being released onto the market you’ll need to figure out which one is best for you. Our first community submission from @erickong is about theremingoat. This is a blog where Goat dives deep into particular switches. Their history, sound, feel, wobble, and anything else relevant. If you’re a fan of knowing every single detail about a switch, this is a blog to keep up with. It’s mind boggling that he has a...
