What?
A keyset inspired by Micro Switch's Halleffect Keyboard that I had the privilege of typing on when I visited the Kono/Input Club office last year. Featuring Cherry's vintage R012345 profile.



When?
November 2019

Where?
US: Kono.store
EU: MyKeyboard.eu
ASIA: zFrontier.com

Money?
TBD

Ships?
16-20 Weeks after GB closes

Colors?
Stock colors, 2M on 2B.

Kits?






Pics?


























Comments?
I'm not exactly sure why Micro Switch's keyboard does not feature ASCII sublegends on all alphas, I did complete it using the standard ASCII table

Nice.  This would probably look great with Modern Dolch mods.

R0 and R5 :D

Is this the first set with both in the base kit?

No, GMK Carbon R2 had full R0 to R5 profile.

Would you consider adding a windowed stepped caps lock? the windowed caps always makes a board seem more retro, so would fit well with the theme IMO.

This kit has 150 keys already. Just stepped windowed Shift Lock alone wouldn't make sense, I'd also have to add regular Shift Lock LED, Lock LED and Num Lock LED. So an additional 4 caps. Plus they'd be pad printed. Doubt I'll feel like adding those tbh.

Ah, oh well, no worries. Thanks for the fast reply! I also didn't know GMK's windowed caps were pad printed, more reason not to lol.

The transparent part of the key replaces the first shot that is usually the legend, and since GMK does not have triple shot tooling, all shots are used up by the time the window with the surrounding key is produced. Leaving only the option of adding the legend via pad printing then.

I like it! Good kit as well.

Any chance you could have a color comparison with for example Oblivion or Modern Dolch greys?

 i have a proposition. It would be nice if others agree to it. Something like desko (or any color) rgb + accent enter/esc pack to 'accent' the set to perfection

That would be a pretty funny set: GMK Unit, and just have the side-printed unit measurements.

Cool.

Has 2B been used on other sets?  I can't seem to recall if so.  Any idea how close it is to the custom color of gray used for Space Cadet?

Definitely interested, though I haven't found R0 to my liking after trying it.

Please consider an R1 row kit as well as a different modifier (text+icon) kit for Backspace, Tab, Enter/Return, Shift

you can just put it next to other grays like honeywell mods, modern dolch alphas, and space cadet (if you have them).

I'm not exactly sure why Micro Switch's keyboard does not feature ASCII sublegends on all alphas, I did complete it using the standard ASCII table

I can only speculate, but ^H = Backspace, ^I = Tab (HT), ^J = Linefeed (LF), ^[ = Esc.
Seems like there are already dedicated keys for these so the Ctrl+Char is a bit redundant.

Nice looking set!  :D
