The set looks great! I think this will be the endgame keycap set for all the different layouts I want to try since there are no legends. Maybe it's finally time to try DVORAK? 🤔
I wish there was a light desk mat to match the light base, though!

Been waiting for round two since I got into the hobby, thanks for running a light and dark set!

Hi biip,

Can you provide a comparison with Dots 1? (matter, thickness, profile, colors…)
I have the Dots 1 and I wonder if I can mix :)

thanks

Honestly, with all these garbage sets and weeb sets getting pushed into GMK's factory. This should take priority. First decent set to come out in quite a long time. Excited to add the white to my r1. Everyone spam GMK till they pushed this through to the front of the line!

This is the coldest take I've seen on GH in a long time. If anything, its crazy popularity will make it so that the manufacturing time is considerably longer.
No need to **** on other people's sets just to complement another. Could say something like "I really like the white base kit, thanks for adding it to compliment the original!"

Love that the Rainbow dots kit is essentially enough for a full ortho. Have some 1u spacebars lying around too, so it's pretty awesome buy on its own for split and ortho lovers. Thanks for doing this Biip! :)

When I click on the picture, Geekhack expands it to full-size.  Does this not work for you?

It looks lovely. I think I like the dark set more, but can't help but wonder how nice it would look if I would combine light alphas with dark modifiers or the other way around..

Seems colorful RAMA is close but not certain to reach MOQ. Will vendors purchase the remaining caps as extras, or will it not be shipped if 500 MOQ is not met? I’d like to get that cap  :)
