I don't know. I think the colors sort of mesh with the show/characters well. Maybe because of how the opening credits come across to me?

There are actually keyboards specifically built for video editing.
You mean like the Da Vinci Resolve?

Show Image


It's a great keyboard from what I've read, but I've never used one myself, because it costs 30 grand.

That looks more like what a rocket control station would use. Really, video editing?

Yea I just used the colours from the opening creds.. maybe not to your liking but if not something like that, I think it would have to be just black&white

The only idea i've really had is to make keys that look like legos. either the normal key shape with studs on top or a full square shaped enter or escape or something. i wanted to make them but the very idea of what that would entail was enough to make me tired so i never did.

I know this isn't exactly what you're looking for but I thought you might still be interested. QWER is selling these which I thought were cute.

I'd like to see a League of Legends custom key cap set with the "L" game icon as Esc. Maybe QWER in the same font and icon style as the "L"?

Show Image


The D and F keys being an assortment of all the different summoner spell icons:

And B being the recall icon:

Could add a few others maybe, like A and V for the attack move and retreat ping cursors if people would want those. Thoughts, anyone?

Kinda distracts from the post, doesn't it ;)
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

I have the WASD sampler caps and the profile is different than the OEM caps which come standard on a Leopold FC200R. I think WASD may have their own profile.

What I'd really love are keycaps with the flags of the world, and each flag's respective country starts with the letter.  For example, C would be the Canadian flag, Q=Qatar, etc. etc.  I think this has to happen – I'm a huge vexillology buff.

I realize the opinion some of you guys have in regards to razer but I just sent them an e-mail asking them permission to use their logo for a keycap.  I think this would look nice in the toxic colors or as a backlit key.

Edit:  Also just talked with a GM for Blizzard asking them about using some of their faction logos for keycaps and he told me that I would have to contact their legal department via snail mail.  If anyone might be interested in this the address is as follows

Blizzard Entertainment

Be sure to include all of your contact information (name, address, telephone number) so that they can respond back to you.

the sword over those keys seems like an odd choice, might be better to have that on the space bar rather than the logo and move the logo to another longer key like shift or backspace?

Alright, I'll think about that. Just in case I order one and want to try out the other style, is there a place where I can order custom individual keycaps, or would I have to purchase a full set from WASD?

Edit: Just for reference, it was inspired by this design, but I decided to clean it up a little. I love how the sword looks because it's so different from the standard design and makes it pop out, so long as she can touch type (which I believe she can).

Edit 2: Hmm, I don't know if I like it as much. The Zelda theme is much less apparent unless you look at the modifier keys.



Here it is!
