Title: [IC] CRYSTAL KEYCAP? | OEM profile
Post by: Crazy Designers on Fri, 16 April 2021, 11:14:47
Hello! As you might know, we have launched a keeb called CYBERBOARD. At that time, we put a keycap set in the rendering of the CYBERBOARD, and it unexpectedly gained attention  :)) 
 
so we tried to do some drafts out. Any thoughts (⊙_⊙)?

I honestly dig the blue and red one. They do look really nice for rgb and they might be really nice keycaps to put on a translucent board.

Cherry profile will be great. I hope your Cyberboard has another new round of GB,waiting for the "car".

Iím in on this if we can keep the colors reminiscent of fluorescent acrylic from the early 2000s.

I like the idea but I'm not sure about oem profile...

Looks cool; It will be great for macropads if the keys actually come as in the renders.

I'm definitely interested in seeing what this looks like when you get samples in!

I'm not a fan of the OEM profile. Would be more interested if it were Cherry, KAT, or MT3.

Regardless, looks awesome! Color choices look great. Love the clear/orange cap.

EDIT: Would love to see a render with just a clear-cap/black-legend theme.

I could use some completely clear caps with legends for a build I'm doing so badly. I'd be in for some of those for sure.
Title: Re: [IC] CRYSTAL KEYCAP? | OEM profile
Post by: Willtato on Fri, 16 April 2021, 20:08:03
If this keycap set would come out and I were to use it, I can imagine myself getting a fixed layout plate cut. I would expect these caps to show the gaps in the plate as well as it does the switches...

Need more information, not just show of concept.What material would this be, profile, target pricing and kitting.
Title: Re: [IC] CRYSTAL KEYCAP? | OEM profile
Post by: ab042896 on Sat, 17 April 2021, 11:55:49
plastic that is clear is in fact a thing that exists

anything known about type of plastic, infill legends, pad printed legends, etc.?

also cherry > OEM

This is neat but like the others, oem profile will limit what you can use these with quite a bit.
Title: Re: [IC] CRYSTAL KEYCAP? | OEM profile
Post by: Cornelius240 on Sat, 17 April 2021, 14:05:14
Iím definitely interested.

What's wrong with OEM? I like OEM. If you like cylindrical shaped keycaps but think Cherry profile is too low, then OEM can be a option for you.

Post by: 1391401 on Sun, 18 April 2021, 23:33:10
YES but I'd have to see what it actually looks like before buying cause the render looks like a cartoon.
Title: Re: [IC] CRYSTAL KEYCAP? | OEM profile
Post by: HappyB0T on Mon, 19 April 2021, 21:41:54
renders are so clear - I would really be interested in seeing what the actual kaps would look like. If they are 80% as clear as the renders I'm in.
Title: Re: [IC] CRYSTAL KEYCAP? | OEM profile
Post by: Havattack on Mon, 19 April 2021, 22:36:31
I like them. They'd probably work great as just "accent" keys too.
Title: Re: [IC] CRYSTAL KEYCAP? | OEM profile
Post by: santela on Mon, 19 April 2021, 22:59:31
Agree the renders look too cartoonish and Cherry profile will definitely be more popular.

Also this could come out looking awfully cheap, so I think we'll need to see some prototypes before we can decide.

The concept is great and if it were possible they would look very cool on something like the Glitch.  That said I don't think current production methods would allow it.  Keep investigating and if you are able to get somewhere, I think people would buy.
