Announcing the winners of our Pimp Your Filco Contest
« on: Thu, 12 June 2014, 07:59:33 »
After 43 awesome entries, were happy to announce the winners of our Pimp Your Filco Contest.

Our first place winner is Jocke, who contributed his custom Filco MiniLa.





The Swedish board has MX Brown switches, with custom keycaps from WASD. Jocke did his own design (using the WASD template), with legends in Open Sans (color #5EB1E7) on #D0CCC0 keycaps. Some keys were kept black to match the spacebar. A red ANY KEY keycap and a red custom cable from Paranoid on Deskthority complete the look.

Jocke wins a Max Keyboard Blackbird with MX Brown switches for his entry. Congratulations!

Our runner-up is plasticchair, who submitted his custom Filco Majestouch-2.





He has extensively modified his Filco over the past two years in order to make it more unique. The case and keycaps have been custom painted many times, with the look pictured being his favourite. Vintage MX Black switches have been soldered in, stickered and lubed. He has also added a shelf liner to fill the case, and even changed the LEDs.

plasticchair wins an Orthomouse and has promised a review of the same. Congratulations!

hanks to everyone that entered there were many great entries, so it was very hard to pick just two winners! Well be showcasing some of the best submissions in a later post, so please stay tuned.

In the meantime, Id encourage you to follow us on Twitter and Facebook so youll hear about upcoming contests, news and promotions.

Very nice entries, well deserving of their prizes!

Congratulations both of you :)
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thats incorrect. Its in HHKBs slogan, but when Americas 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
