Gateron Spherical ABS Double Shot (GTR Keycaps)
« on: Sat, 12 October 2019, 08:28:27 »
So I was browsing instagram today then I saw this ad:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/woo-dy/woo-dy-a-67-keys-mechanical-keyboard-that-is-breathing

Then I was like cool nice keyboard, though it's not dramatically different than most keyboard in this layout/form factor.

But then I was like wait a minute, are those SA keycaps?  The angle seems different, so I read the description lower in the page.  Gaterons's first double shot ABS keycaps in OEM angle but spherical top.

Anyone know about this?  I always find myself hitting the edge when switching rows when using SA keycaps, so this actually sounds interesting to me.  Granted I'm generally leaning towards cylindrical than spherical, but if the price is not too high I might try it.

I also wonder if I can buy the keycaps only for full size keyboards.

Might have to wait till other vendors to carry them.

I guess they're called GTR Keycaps. I guess GTR stands for Gateron.

Anyone know where to get them?

I've been looking around at this stuff before, about a half a year ago.  Best I could tell, the caps are renders and/or photoshopped existing keycaps.  I went down the rabbit hole long enough to find a facebook page for the company and it had no posts.  Seemed like a scam.

I saw that too and thought it would be similar to JTK HSA caps. but looks like profile is different a bit.

Yeah I think this is "OEM angled" as oppose to SA's aggressive angle.

I find I still type faster with OEM and Cherry profile so I was looking forward to this.
