Excellent keyboard and would be one of my favorites if it had a more standard layout.
You think the Monterey layout isn't standard enough? Oo

I'm currently using the Bastron Glass Keyboard.
At first it was frustrating to get tpying fast on it or touchh-typing. It takes a bit of getting used to, but I like using it. Makes me feel like I am using the keyboard from IronMan.

Do you actually prefer that over a mechanical or even a rubber dome? Is that your go-to, or are you just using it for the novelty.

wear gloves

Wearing gloves or not I touch something covered in germs - if I then touch my face that's bad.

If I'm not wearing gloves I pull out my hand sanitiser, clean my hands and the bottle, and the germs are gone.

If I'm wearing gloves I have to take them off without touching them, else my hands get covered in germs anyway.  I then have a pair of germ infested gloves that in the best case I put in a bin - which was likely touched by someone else doing the same thing.  Then I have to wash my hands anyway.  Or, if there is no bin handy I have some germy gloves to put in my bag or pocket, infecting them and requiring another hand washing session later when I take them out...

Gloves just seem to waste time and add another level of risk, not to mention the commonly seen rubber ones are bad for the environment.

What am I missing that makes gloves so great?

So, this sold out in a hours in Europe but is still at 20% everywhere else?

Can we have more sets?

It's a group buy so it can't sell out; the more sets are ordered, the better. Either the set hasn't gone live in Europe yet, or Jae temporarily marked it as sold out in order to adjust something on the product page.

Yep it was the Coming Soon page that was visible until the GB went live. GB is now live on the site :D
I might get away with it ... good one on the left, broken on the right.

And it kinds clips over the bump at the bottom of the cylinder.

I know I'm unable to help you with this damage, but could you please give the keyboard's dimensions (width, length, height), as I'm in the process of recreating these terminal in 3D? Thank you in advance.

OK, I'll bite. Are you saying that it is safe to eat messy foods while using it?

 :)) :)) :))

Well, I would say that you will be able to... It cleans up easily. I use window cleaner.

Of course I should explain my phrase. I'm sure a British person will understand it.
Marmite is something that is sold in stores in England and its colonies. It is an extremely sour paste that can be used to make sandwiches, a broth, etc. It has an acquired taste. So some people like it and others don't.

So I was using it as a metaphor to describe the Bastron Glass Keyboard. Some people who like it and there are those who don't.

Also see the sticky in announcements.  Not sure if it still applies, would be good to know if it doesn't so it can be updated :thumb:

That's exactly what I ended up doing: cleared cookies and switched VPN regions. Everything is hunky dory. This is the problem with large VPN provides, I guess.

EDIT: Damn, I think it's not in the good thread.

Sorry if it has been already suggested.

Is it possible to split the IC and GB into two others sections?

I mean, it would be 4 sections at the end; Keyboards IC/GB and Keysets IC/GB.

They are so much of both that it could be easier to navigate (at least for me...) if there are dedicated sections for Keyboard and keyset.

I don't see any argument against it that beside to time it would take. Feel free to let me know why it would not be a good idea!

Weird request, but any chance we get alternative wob kit? Like a "dark" kit or is ePBT still not doing reverse dyesub?

I wonder if they have proxy in the UK or EU. Shipping this heavy boi from the US would be costly.

They do, they actually keep a list on their website of their European resellers:

Currently only two, one in the UK and the other in Germany.

Yeah, but there's a small-ish problem: they don't take custom orders. You can only buy what they have in stock. So, if you want a custom keyboard or something they don't have in their inventory, you need to order directly from Unicomp in the USA.

I wonder if they could work out a deal where you specify what modifications you want, and just wait for whenever they're replenishing some stock in Europe and just send it in that shipment, then have one of the European locations ship it to you. I imagine you could save a lot of money that way, by sacrificing a lot of time, if they're willing to work with you on it.

I'm not sure they're willing to start offering this kind of capability. It's a great idea, but it's up to them.
