I wasn't on geekhack during April fool's but damn this actually looks really good. This might be my favorite keyset of this year actually.

The iso enter shouldn't just have a dot onto it but rather a line (like the 2u numpad keys)  ;)

April Fools Day joke, meme set, call it whatever but I really like it! If this becomes reality I'm so down for a set! The only question I got is, isn't this set gonna require pretty much all custom molds for the legends or does GMK actually have molds with dots & oblongs already?

That ISO Enter key needs to be adjusted. All other >1U keys have a bar, and both numpad+ and numpad Enter have a vertical one. Why does the ISO Enter have a simple dot?

At 40%, you will stop dots -- until then, you will throw more dots

Throw more dots, more dots, more dots

Come on, more dots

That's the regular red dot key. We need another one as an accent key for the Esc key. Ain't it obvious enough?  >:D

I'm a fan. If I could have one request it would be for an all gray modifiers kit, or at least the bottom row keys (like Penumbra), but I totally get that's not something most people would want. Might be in regardless if I have the cash at the right time.

Was about to say the same: an optional dark gray dot mod kit for those of us that like muted colourways (with a few selected dark red dot keys for the accents).

The iso enter could have a blob with a corner, roughly following the outline of the keycap (sort of an L-shape but rotated). Not an iso user but that could look cool!

It will require an additional 150MOQ kit.
Same for Ergo/Assembly kit.

I'm not sure there will be enough interest for that :(

Another serious, if possibly unfeasible, idea:

Could there be optional six seven "color" kits with, say, 12 keys (4 R1, 2 R2, 2 R3, 4 R4) of the same color be made available, so anyone that might be unsatisfied with the base kit's offering could complete whatever he or she had in his or her mind regarding a particular keyboard layout?

That's a bummer. Keep it in mind if this blows up though, maybe.

Based on the base set, shouldn't there be a R1 1u yellow (Del), R2 1u purple (PgUp) and R3 1u orange(PgDn)?  ;D

If it were for me, I'd code Backspace and Del as red dots... which means we're also going to need a 2U red dot key.  :eek:
