HuB Profile Sees First Light!

more_vert
The HuB keycap profile has been a passion project of mine for the last three years. It's something I care deeply about and would like to see gain more exposure. Earlier this year I spent a large amount of my own money to produce 500 prototype sets, 250 black and 250 white. Those sets are now complete.

What is HuB? Simply put, HuB is a cross between DSA and Cherry profiles. With row profiling matching Cherry, but spherical tops similar to DSA and SA, HuB not only looks great, but also feels great to type on.

I've long enjoyed the typing experience of Cherry, but there is something about a sculpted spherical set that just looks amazing. I wanted to take the features of all my favorites and put them together is a cohesive manner. I also designed a new spacebar that slopes towards the user for maximum comfort without looking out of place.

The prototype sets include support for most 40% keyboards including MiniVan, JD40/45, and Planck. The set also supports the Preonic keyboard. What are people saying about HuB? “I'm very much tempted to order a second set of hub” -sirknighting “I never realized how close to cherry they are. I need to get my Hub on a board” -Jake | P3D Store “I'm hoping HuB gets enough attention as well. I really like the profile and would like to see some place like TKC make it super accessible. It really is the best of both Cherry and DSA.” -mattyice “I cant get over how nice HuB feels on my fingertips. My fingers fit perfectly within the sculpt of the homing keys.” -mattyice “HuB is pretty nice” -Window Dump “HuB on emma! Looks good, feels good ” -hOnK Sr. “Hub bars very comfy indeed” -hOnK Sr. “HuB has improved my WPM” -PsychicTaco13 “Hub feels awesome” -atari_zero “Finally getting a chance to try HuB out. Really digging it. Feels really natural to type on. ” -Annihilator6000 User Photos

I'd love a copy of this keyboard base - it's sooo hard to find an 1800 mini layout for sale.

Please do! An 1800 mini base ready for switches and caps would probably sell really well. I've been waiting for one to come out for awhile now. I've read other people asking about them on Reddit too.

That'd be an interesting profile to test, since I find Cherry perfect for typing, while DSA usually looks great. Hope all goes well so maybe there's a set with legends later on. Nice work!

why spherical caps? why not something like MDA with huge surfaces, which are fantastic to type on, and standardized profiles no matter the row like XDA, so that users can easily swap keys from diff keycap sets?

i do like how they are spherical and short compared to SA. that is one of the downsides of SA is that it is way too tall. looks funny on my exposed switch board

Love the idea, especially if they are smooth to the touch like SA instead of rough like most Cherry keys. However, I will wait to purchase until I can buy a set of labeled keys.

It's called the Garbage Truck. I'm planning to run a GB after the hub caps sell through.

Upgraded my Drop Alt with a cheap EVGA Z15
When I saw the hotswappable EVGA Z15 keyboard was only 40 bucks and the same price as buying just the KAILH Bronze switches I wanted to try in my Drop Alt, I went ahead and bought it from Amazon. On prime day it was even cheaper at only 35 bucks, I can't say I regret paying the extra 5 for the value I got out of it though. I basically got a whole spare keyboard, keycaps, 8 free speed silvers, a switch and keycap puller, all for the same price as 110 Kailh Bronze switches I was already doing to buy. I used the keyboard for a few days before popping the switches out, and found the stabilizers on the spacebar to be much nicer than the ones in my 2 year old Alt (I understand Newer drop alts have a better stabs included). Out of curiosity I looked at the stabs in the Z15 and found them to be a match for the drop alt, and swapped them over, I didnt even have to unscrew anything, just popped them out with the tabs. My spacebar feels so much nicer now, and I didn't have to pay another 25...

Hypothetically, imagine DROP could get any licensing rights for any past present and future GMK set, and make it in DCX, what would it be? (ima start stirring the pot with DCX Nuclear Data)

Drop Control Connection Issue
When I plug the keyboard into a computer, it usually takes anywhere between 10 to 30 seconds before the LED’s power on and my inputs go through. Is there any reason for this? Thanks!
