I fear we won't be able to get enough people in on this to make it worthwhile.  But a nyancat number/function row would be epic as hell.

We could probably get gizmodo, etc. to post about it even.

If the keys for Nyan cat set would be possible (as in not look horrible), I wouldn't mind getting a set.

You can do all the colors on one svg. We're probably going to have to do a really medium blue, but guys. I just had the most EPIC idea ever:

NYANCAT AS BACKSPACE

RAINBOW OF KEYS GOING ALL ALONG `1234567890-=

basically, 2 different rainbow keys, one where it waves up, one where it waves back down, alternate the keys and it looks like a rainbow trail!

Edit: looks like some of you had similar ideas lol.

The SVG doesn't need the lines for the pixels, since the size of the thing is way too small to be able to see the lines between them... it'd probably just mess it up somehow knowing how complicated the process is.

You sir are a genius.

Why stop there?  Nyan cat is infinite!  Make the whole alphanum cluster be rainbow wake, and the modifiers can be stars.

Hey RCT, you want to start a separate threads for keycap ideas. I'm worried we got a bit off topic and are spamming this thread.

To be honest the end of an interest check is where this stuff normally forms. This thread is going to be dead/closed by Monday so I don't really mind.

I'm interested in about 5-25 normal cat keycaps, depending on price.

... That's why we're doing it as a modifier or potentially a capslock, so it won't be square.

And every key being LOD would be absolutely hilarious.


I was only half joking about this. I've recently come across a small cache of funds I had neglected to blow on retarded stuff in a paypal account.

Could you ballpark exactly what the price would be to get LOD on every key for a TKL Leopold board?

Uhh... probably quite a bit, since they'd have to be several different sizes and the quantity for each size would be relatively low. It'd be 3 figures I'm pretty certain.

I could ask Melissa in my next email to her, hopefully I remember!

I was figuring it would be quite a bit. If it's not a pain in the ass, i'm just asking for a rough estimate.

If you wanted to not do modifiers I'd imagine it'd be a fair amount cheaper... and if you wanted to just use all row 4 keycaps (instead of row 1 2 3 and 4) you could just use the existing keycap and that'd be pretty cheap, you'd just order a ton of them from one of the group buys.

The group buy orders are being taken in a separate thread. Two and a half weeks remaining before money is gathered.
