[IC] KCH (Keyreative) Hipparcos
« on: Sat, 13 April 2024, 05:06:38 »

IC Form | Discord

Good morning everyone, KKB Outer Bounds was not able to sate my curiosity for the cosmos (after reading Wikipedia extensively), and so I’m back with another space themed set: KCH Hipparcos.

The set is inspired by the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram which describes the composition of stars in galaxies. I hope that this set is as colourful and vibrant as the night sky.

Short Q&A

Q: What is a Hertzsprung-Russell diagram?

A: In summary, the Hertzsprung-Russell diagram (or H-R diagram) is a scatter plot which maps the luminosities of a body of stars against their effective temperatures (which determines their colour). Through H-R diagrams, astronomers are able to discover evolution patterns and anomalies in stellar populations. For the curious.

Q: What is Hipparcos?

A: HIPPARCOS is the first satellite dedicated to precision astrometry, i.e. the measurement of properties of celestial bodies. HIPPARCOS is also named after the ancient Greek astronomer Hipparchus, who has achieved significant breakthroughs in astronomy. I believe this name is apt for a set inspired by stars and the measurement of stars. For the curious.

Q: What is KCH?

A: KCH is Keyreative’s cherry profile offering - currently only available in dyesub, but doubleshot is expected to enter production later in the year. Keyreative’s quality is no doubt excellent, especially in colour reproduction and level of details; we understand there are concerns as to long fulfillment times, which is why the set will be available in stock.

Hertzsprung-Russell (Base Kit)

Love this. Looking forward to seeing samples. Keyreative is gaining my trust again with the communication and customer service on their discord and direct-to-consumer sale of new keycaps (esp kat operator).
