[GB] Long Boi - A 30inch or 7ft keyboard
« on: Mon, 20 November 2023, 15:17:37 »



Long Boi Group Buy


Background

Hello everyone! Jack from Pikatea here. It's a well known fact that bigger is better with most things in life. This keyboard comes in 2 variants, a 30 inch (762mm) or 7ft-2in (2184mm) size. The 7ft version can be converted to 44 inches (1117mm). It features 2 numpad positions with layout options that you'd expect from a mechanical keyboard plus a rotary encoder and a small macro cluster. Both versions are gasket mounted. The 30 inch version is made with 3mm stacked matte black acrylic. It hides fingerprints and sounds great! The 7ft versions is printed in matte black PLA. It takes a week of constant printing!

Unironically this. It doesn't have enough keys. You omit either numbers or function keys and things like break.

There's space there. I would genuinely purchase this product for the lulz if it was even fully functional as a keyboard.

Pretty much my thoughts too.

I'm not sure what you mean... It's a fully functional keyboard.

I think they're complaining there's no function row. But like, put them on one of the number pads.

Or a normal number row.

I'm also thinking not just missing Fx and number rows, I'm thinking using a mouse with this would probably be pretty uncomfortable.
