Which set of GMK keycaps do you want to be Shine Through ?
« on: Wed, 09 June 2021, 20:46:51 »
Hey,

We have seen a lot of GMK keycaps with matching colors, which one or which several do you think they shine through is also great!!!

Hope you can leave a comment to discuss, preferably with a picture!!

I like the Dots, but it seems difficult to get shine through

If you mean gamer shinethrough-maybe wob or bow but that's it.

Please don't tell me yall are planning to clone gmk sets with shine-through legends, that's not the appeal of GMK

But if you are asking about like caps lock, sroll like og shinethrough, then only really og sets tbh, even then I don't have much boards that can take advantage of it

ew no not like gaming rgb shine through if that's what you mean, although i would very much like shine through on keys like Caps lock, scroll lock or num on the classic beige colourway or keycap sets inspired by vintage keyboards. I don't think it would work with the fancy GMK colour ways though.

Interesting that a lot of the community sees this as "gamery" and unappealing in general. Backlit keyboards/caps have been around a LOT longer than the current RGB/gaming keyboards, your laptop probably had one 15 years ago. Patents for this technology go back 40+ years https://patents.google.com/patent/US4449024
