Excellent set.

+1 for glossy

There is a typo in the Spacebar kit, are we getting (2) 1u keys or (1) 1u & (1) 1.25u?

Is base color the same with KAM Wraith?

If yes then we can mix & match. The novelties look great!

Wow. Never before have I felt the need to get every kit from a keycap set. GLWIC

Edit: OK, maybe not all the mods but still.  ^-^

Looks like another winner!

I thought I would join some others in requesting a small homing kit for the alt layout crowd:



Also, adding non-homing X, V, and J would serve the same purpose as the additional B in the Spacebars kit.
More
X  -  for Dvorak
V  -  for Colemak DH, Colemak DHm, and Workman
J  -  for QGMLWY

B remains in the QWERTY location for Colemak, Norman, and QWPR.


Edit: saw others have already requested a homing kit.

This keyset is just amazing! Looking forward to participating in GB soon!
BTW, I might mislooked but any pricing and estimated timings for GB to begin?

Thanks for your suggestion.

This trend worries me.

The argument for second B is for typists on Alice layouts who type "incorrect" and also don't know how to customize their layout.

I'd say anyone who would switch to an alternative layouts would also take the time to type each key with the correct finger, or at least choose one side. Additionally, since the default layout is usually QWERTY, they probably also know how to put the key in that position key in whichever place they want it.

The beauty of this kit is that there's so many novelties and macro keys that you could literally put any on the spot which you are not using to type B.

I will absolutely concede this point to anyone who uses an optimized typing layout and still would like to have this key for both index fingers. For the time being, I'd say the whole extra B key is a bad trend and we shouldn't compound it.

+1. I don't own an Alice, so chafes me that I have a gazillion extra B keys sitting around while also being told "you use a weird layout (Colemak), which I'm not supporting" by many designers. I don't want to see even more useless keys added to cater to the Alice crowd (Sorry not sorry).

I don't have TAB or ESC in R3, so I use a novelty for R3; Alice users that use non QWERTY layouts can use a novelty for their not-a-B key.

In sculpted sets it's one additional B for alice and a whole load of additional keys for colemak though

With non sculpted it's pretty easy though

No, it's the same amount of additional keys for extra B/not-B. Sculpted or uniform makes no difference.

Sorry, don't take it seriously, it was just a joke related to the simple and straight answer "No.".

The joke is that someone will ask Zambumon something and Z will often simply respond with "No" with no further explanation or justification. K wasn't saying KAM Playground itself is violating Z's IP.
