[IC] 'tISOstupid
« on: Tue, 31 March 2020, 18:26:26 »
Good day fellow enthusiasts

I've spent years in this hobby trying to perfect my crafting of bespoke input devices. Combining the knowledge I've absorbed through lurking pools of wisdom like #kb-kustoms I feel like I have finally reached absolute summit game. I'd love to present you the pinnacle of custom mechanical keyboards: 'tISOstupid.





Layout

We have long come to the conclusion that the superior key in keyboards is the ISO enter. Users like Blacksimon and Pwner have gone on daring expeditions trying to extract the purest ISO juice out of this marvellous key. Building upon their great research I realised that the key was to arrange said keys in their natural shape. This strongly magnifies the magical powers these little bricks of plastic posses. Running 1 click simulations in Fusion we estimate by up to 96.9999 fold (please note hitting 97 kind of power is not yet possible as it requires the cost of our own humanity and emotions).

Mounting

'tISOstupid will use a whole new type of mounting we named mattress mount. Each key has an individual plate. The plate holding the switch is pressed into an upper plate by 4 individual springs with a gasket in-between the top and middle plate. Using 4 springs on each plate makes for a sort of "switch within a switch". The total sandwhich would be upper plate - gasket - mounting plate - springs - bottom. Users can also switch out these springs to adjust the typing experience to their needs. To keep all these plates separate each switch will also have it's own PCB connected with short JST cables in-between. This way the typing experience on each of your ISO enters will be identical with no issues like a flexier plate in the middle.

FAQ

Will you actually make this?

Yes

This seems kinda useless?

Yes

Won't this be insanely expensive to manufacture?

Yes

Won't this probably sound awful from all the metal on metal contact in the mounting system?

Yes

This is so stupid


Yes

Will I be able to set my mattress number different than my partners mattress number? We like to type differently so we’d prefer to have our own mattress firmness.

You really should have considered the pair programming audience. I guess I’ll have to stick with my Serta ANSI mattropad for now!

Suggesting the blocking of ISO keys is non acceptable behaviour. We prefer to not do business with people with people who hold hateful beliefs like this and are obliged to inform you your customer account has been suspended.

At least in the image as it stands now, the leftmost keys are rotated in the wrong direction. I assume your plate/PCBs will allow 180° rotation so this can be set up by the user the way he or she sees fit.

Do you also request a Big Mac while sitting in a 3 star restaurant? We don't talk about low quality keys like that here.
