Where did he get these white keycaps for HHKB?
« on: Thu, 16 February 2017, 15:53:16 »
I was reading a deskthority post about the HHKB and this guy modified it to have white keycaps and said he got it from a blue topre? What is that? I was wondering where did he get them if anyone knew. Link below

It looks to me like he is using caps from a Realforce set. Notice the "Insert" key on the top row 'cause there is no 1u "\|" key in the Realforce set. These sets are very hard to find now.

It is the blue topre realforce set just a really bad quality picture.

yeah it's the blue realforce set, but with terrible white balance.

you can find coloured realforce keysets on ebay/rakuten/etc but they're pretty expensive ($130+)

Damn, I guess I would just have to browse ebay or rakuten and see maybe someone eventually drops a set. Are they different feel though? I see some people maybe just bought 2 HHKB and mixed and matched them haha.
