Looks awesome, but ther is one issue I’m concerned about and it’s not mentgioned on the page about the keyboard at all.
If this is the typical plastic keys with a black coat of paint and then laser etched to let the light shine through, or laser etched and fulled with white paint (Sidewinder X4 does this) then that is not good enough.
I’ve worn out lettering on 2 keyboards here, and all within the warranty time. It’s fine by me as the warranty is new for the replacement keyboard so in theory I could keep getting a replacement keyboard for all eternity (will get expensive in the long run for the store/manufacturer though).
Silk printing, or clear coated/epoxy coated does not last long either.
Sublimation die on the other hand should be much more durable, but difficult with backlighting.
Then there is injection moulded, and there exist a inverted double injection moulded technique out there. But it’s more expensive.
Also, is it possible to get a Nordic (or preferred) Norwegian layout as well? Considering that my named has “å” in it’s name it’s kind of important.
I’ve looked long for a good keyboard, but none manages to retain the lettering. Right now the third Sidewinder X4 here is starting to bleed through on several keys. (the white letter paint has vanished which isn’t that bad, it’s just brighter there, but it’s much worse when the N key for example becomes a big bright blob instead.
Since double injection moulded is so expensive I’ve been looking for keyboards that have clear keycaps but with letter inlays.
Depending on how the cap inlay is done it could even be backlighted.
And you’d never scratch through a chunk of pure plastic, that’s for sure.
And a language variant of a keyboard could be done as simple as providing a sheet of alternatives to slot into the keys.
There exist such caps out there.
But if an idea is needed on how to do such then one could simply have a keycap with a “sticker/inlay” on top of it, and then over that just pressfit/click on a clear top cap. Cheap and no need for injection moulding and easy to customize for languages/regions, and ever wears out. Some POS systems has this. I’d love a keyboard like the CODE With such keys.
