The Realforce portfolio seems to have some holes in it. I'd like to see them release the following:
A special limited edition Realforce 87UB Silent with 30g domes. They've released a few ANSI 104 boards but nothing 87 ANSI. This board would counter the compact 35g Plum boards that have popped up. They already make 30g NIS boards in Japan so they already have the formulas/domes.
A full size 104 55g board. Realforce already has two SKU's for this so I don't know what the hold up is. The only unsubstantiated theory I have is Elite Keyboards has some sort of deathlock or contract on the 55g domes themselves. My guess is Topre has a huge MOQ on these that EK won't buy into but at the same time EK won't give permission for anyone to use the 55g domes in any keyboard but theirs. Stalemate and the consumer loses. Topre needs to figure it out because the clones are getting closer by the year; In Korea you can now buy 62g EC models for example.
Also, I would like to see more options for Devlin Q-Series low profile caps. The sticking point is they do not have the molds for 6.25" space bars. Mechsupply used SP DSA for that but I think an even better option would be Devlin L-Series which is currently used on the Cherry G80-3850 models.
Speaking of low profile, I would love to purchase a board using Kailh's new low profile ML clone switches.
Also I would like to see a group buy for Cherry MX Silent Red switches.
I think that's it :)

The first "TRUE" mullti-layout keyboard - Vintage60s
Hi everyone! I am Gary, the designer of G-Concept, long time no see! My studio had join venture with Gugu Studio who specialize in mechanical keyboard switch. So the new studio called "G Square Studio" This time I would like to introduce you my new project "Vintage60s". Another vintage look typewriter design, which is my fav! Outter shape very simple with a touch of decoration by PVD copper bits, which will look more elegrant. So what's new? and what is the special of Vintage60s? I had spent nearly a year on 60s! The reason is I want to make it special, unique, and user friendly! For the past experience tells me, some peope like the 60%, as it is small and delicate, but with the limited keys layout, it is not good enough for work or for gaming! So the 80% may preferrable. Sometimes when you want to buy a new keyboard, you may like the shape, but the layout may not suitable for you, then you start struggling buy it or not! This time I try to get this problem sort it...

Anyone else want a Squid Game keycap set? 🦑🎲
I'm not a designer, but hoping someone else could be inspired. It would be cool to have a set with colours from the show, either the pastel colours of the sort of castle maze they walk through, or perhaps from some combination of the colours of guards' and players' uniforms (there is a great scene where it is just their uniforms contrasted with a white room). A Korean alphabet would be fun, or perhaps English + Korean. Some way to feature the globe of money, perhaps ₩ (Korean won) could feature somehow (Esc?). For modifiers, maybe the images from the sugar cookie game ⭐️, ☂️, etc. It would be nice to work in the guards' symbols as well somehow (🔺, 🟥, ⭕️). Thematically it should be somehow dualistic (players vs guards, childhood vs death, friends vs enemies). Bonus points if I get artisans of the guy with the low-poly-count mask, or the red-green robot girl. I think this series had a great first season and there is some gas in the tank still. I anticipate some more attention due to...

Mac requests keyboard setup everytime
Hi all, I am using a DROP ALT with Macbook pro 14 inch with Monterey 12.0.1. The keyboard is plugged into a CalDigit TS3 plus thunderbolt hub and the computer is connected to the hub. Everytime after I unplug the computer from the hub and reconnect, the computer runs the keyboard assistant program asking to identify the type of keyboard. I was wondering if there is a way to aovid this? Thanks!

Is there any way to change the current keyboard layer from an app?
Specifically, I'd love it if I could use a modal editor like Vim, and have the keyboard colors change whenever I change modes in the editor. Thanks!

Decent starter. Loses value quickly on the market. Not innovative or unique.
