Gifs of Cherry Keycaps
« on: Tue, 28 August 2012, 10:06:43 »
The old guide to mechanical keyboards used to have a collection of GIFs showing how the various keycaps physically moved. I found these gifs again (http://www.leopold.co.kr/?doc=cart/item.php&it_id=1325563447) but would hate for them to disappear again.

Those and the force diagrams (http://www.wasdkeyboards.com/mechanical-keyboard-guide has them, maybe they'd let GH use them) were some of the most useful bits of media I could find when explaining the difference between a membrane and mehanical keyboard. There were even ones for buckling spring and alps, IIRC.

Thoughts?

I think you mean key SWITCHES instead of key CAPS. 

Anyways, you could dig through the old Wiki, as is archived here: http://web.archive.org/web/20101102213030/http://geekhack.org/forumdisplay.php?f=34&redirect=no
tp thread is tp thread
Sometimes it's like he accidentally makes a thread instead of a google search.

We should make 3D animated gifs, for the sake of "because we can".

I'm sure if you ask Lethal Squirrel, he'd let us. I know that he put them on Geekhack before for use by us. Just ask him first, like everything.

I seem to remember that he may have made a BS and Topre model too... I really want to get them for my private archives. If you get his permission, ask him for the Topre and BS models!
