I simply disagree on principle with adding one more thing to the ever increasing list of data trackable to an individual.

I'm sorry if this seems like I'm picking on you, but I just want to understand the viewpoint.

This seems to me to be a very opt-in program, so I don't quite understand the concern.  If you don't want CtrlAlt knowing you've purchased a cap from someone, can't you just not tell them?  There's no way they can force you...  This is just a way to know that it's genuine.  Or am I missing something here?

I have no problem having a rational discussion around my views, so there's nothing to be sorry about.

So the weaker version of this authentication method which would be privacy preserving would be to have authentication stickers that simply have a model ID on them, e.g. "ChemBroV2" or a model #. This would allow an anonymous cap to be verified with a few pics. I assume this was rejected because if you fake the sticker you can pass it off as genuine.

Now let's talk about serial numbered caps. Theoretically this solves the problem, except the serial numbers aren't secret, you have to take a picture and send it to someone so they know it's genuine. But here's the rub, if it's not a secret someone could simply dupe a serial number and sticker. So here's where the trade depot comes in, it's all authenticated and chain of custody is tracked! But then we're back to the previous problem for everyone else. So if you have a cap that has spent time off the grid it's suspicious.

And from the reaction to me for even thinking there's an issue, you can imagine what will be said "oh you traded off the depot, do you have something to hide???"

Again I don't think this is ill intentioned I just do not like the direction.

Personally I think the first is acceptable, but find the second not. We all get choices, happens to be mine.

This seems more like a points system than an authenticity mechanism. Those hologram stickers readily available and easy to recreate. A counterfeiter would only need to buy one  key and then resell that serial repeatedly.

The points are a fun idea though!

Actually, each number is specifically tied in with the cap style and stem type. So you can't simply guess numbers and try to pass them off. Every number can be verified. I can also speak more on the holograms themselves and the distinguishing factors. These aren't cheap off the shelf solutions.

I stand corrected then! Nice work!

ohh ohh I just wanted to ask you know since the bro points is a thing, will we get a point for just participating in a sale but not winning anything so for example people that are like 0/10 still have a few points and get some cool swag like a keychain?


Also Bro point lottery please, but more the first question so losers can still be winners, because being a loser isn't that bad :3

i think you severely underestimate how hard it would be to duplicate these at such a quality you could get away with whilst being cost effective, even to after market prices

everyone is entitled to an opinion, but you are thinking way to hard about this, and completely missing the point

Ok, that simply reinforces my feeling in that a unique serial number would be overkill to prevent successful (and profitable) counterfeiting.

everyone is entitled to an opinion, but you are thinking way to hard about this, and completely missing the point

(This isn't directed solely at you and more my exasperation at the complete overreaction of some people)

I don't know how many times I need to reiterate that I don't think you or Bro are doing anything underhanded, untoward, and instead have the best intentions. I don't know why everyone is having difficulty understanding the fact that I can agree with a motive but not with a method. The examples of unintended consequences are legion.

Either way, it's no fun shouting into the wind, and it seems like the vocal majority of your customers likes it so best of luck on the new method.

i think a point i wanted to get across but didnt, is this is just introducing the concept, but that you should reserve judgement, and theories, until it is all implemented and in action, as points you raised will be a non issue

Looking forward for a Gold Bro Card like my Gold Starbucks Card :D

Pff. I have one of those. But do you also have a Costco Executive card?
And I'm not talking about a regular Executive card; I'm talking about Executive Rinne Tensei Madara Uchiha with the Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan and Rinnegan doujutsus (with the rikidou paths ability) equipped with its Gunbai and control of the juubi and Gedou Mazou, a complete Susano'o, with Hashirama Senju's DNA implanted in its barcode so it can perform Mokuton kekkei genkai and yin-yang release ninjutsu as well as being extremely skilled in taijutsu and bukijutsu.

Oh yea man? Do you happen to also own a Boating License like me?!

My set is available. The person who bought it off of me is trying to start a PayPal claim a few minutes after they paid, and its not worth dealing with it. If you buy it from me, I will cover shipping. 122 for the base set.

It has been fixed, no longer for sale

Definitely a very cool and innovative idea. I love the idea of having COA, I'm always paranoid when trading that I might end up getting a forgery so this is a very welcome addition.

I guess my only question is, these are embedded in the plastic of the key? How will this affect translucent and transparent keys? Thinking of something like the clear BBv2 from the liberator set, wouldn't the hologram be pretty noticeable? What about the effect this might have on backlighting shining through the key?

Upthread Bro mentioned that it is embedded into the switch, so even on a transparent key, it is not noticeable.

It is embedded within the keycap itself.


It wouldn't be noticeable if its mounted on a switch, as it sits right above where the switch housing meets the cap. If you are looking at the key not mounted from the top, it wouldn't be too much of a bother, as there's a lot of plastic in between it and the outside.

How would it affect transparent keycaps?

Especially how would it affect the backlighting, as the LEDs are often towards the top of the switch, where the hologram is.

I love this idea. Thanks for all the thought and hard work bro.

Any chance we could apply for certificates for older caps we purchased from you? Even if it's just the certificate of authenticity and colour/name, obviously there wouldn't be anything on the actual cap and no points. I know this would add a bit of work but it would be great for those of us with decent brocap collections already ;)

In the art world, people spend tons of money for authentication service. It is very time-consuming and requires some serious provenance.

For sure! That's why I am asking  :p  I'm guessing it would have to be kept to caps bought directly from Bro and more limited caps that he knows well. But I would see this as a strictly on request thing and maybe even for a limited time so as not to overload Bro.

Unfortunately, there will be no ID for past products. The trade depot will be for caps with Tru-Bro ID's only, as we just can't dedicate the time or resources to looking into, and verifying, each instance of every trade that doesn't have an ID.

I would imagine that I could just not register any trades or participate in any of your trading methods and when I send someone a picture of a serial they can type it in and your site spits out that its "X cap in Y color with Z stem from this date of runs and is authentic" or something similar correct?  Why all the conspiracy cries.

Also... this gives me broboners.  :p

Think this is great, both from a trading and collecting perspective. Really clean stamp that gives it a more personal vibe. Noice/10

It's simple, the world is full of hypocrites that would flip one or the other thing for hard cash but at the same time they don't want people to know. It's in the human nature, you can't change it.

For me this is awesome, I think all of this increases the Coolness Factor  :cool: Can't wait to get the first one with this ID (with my luck it will take a while :)) ).

Multipass.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

Exactly!

Every time someone says "multi-something" at work there's a round of "multipass" :))

This is awesome - there should be a companion site on ctrlalt.io that tracks your "Brochievements". Something like: "Collect 1 of each new style: Cherokey, Brobot V3, etc..." When you complete a collection or "Brochievement" you get bonus points that you can use toward purchases on ctrlalt.io.
