There is so much going on... what about just an addon kit without a base?  Just do the mod/fn keys that you want in colors with a simple legend color?  Then buyers could add that visual/functionality to any base set.

yeah, we wanna do that ,but there are much work to do .

It'd be pretty cool if there was a giant panda themed key set, that's not having to buy that whole varmilo keyboard. And I don't like the fonts used on it, either. I can bet someone can make a better version of it. I also don't know how well it would do, there's a handful of green/black/white kits already. At the very least, it'd be cool for a desk mat.

I want a keycap with a tiny bear trap on it. And not some wimpy spring in a plastic trap, I want it to hurt. Full steel construction with heavy leaf springs and pan mechanism.

Has anyone attempted to make a keycap set that's based on or draws inspiration from Firewatch? I think that'd be pretty slick. Oranges, yellows, and black.

I like both of these ideas.

The latter is probably easier to implement in plastic, considering there's also a very handsome Firewatch text editor theme: https://github.com/rakr/vim-two-firewatch.

I would love the idea of Firewatch themed keycaps, especially as that top picture is my desktop wallpaper.

I'd do it myself, but I am too new to the community to, one, even know what I am supposed to do in regards to vendors, and two, try and get people to trust me because of my newness.

Usually not a problem nowadays with vendors mostly doing all the work, I bet some experienced keyset-runner would help you out if you asked!

I'd love some R4/R5 1.5u diamond/super/sys keys. I know I'm probably a minority here though.

Id love to do a DEC PDP themed set in doubleshot MT3, probably using PDP 11 colours.

Beige on black alphas, mauve and pink modifiers and some novelties with the PDP logo. I think itd work really well.

I've been into cars since I was a little kid and something I always enjoyed was exploring the vast array of decals that people could put on cars. Something I am looking for and having a hard time finding is blank Keysets with "decals" on them. Like a blank keyset with one image chiseled over the keys. Touch-typing doesn't require correct icons on the keys anymore once you get good enough. So I would like a keyboard that blanks out all the keys and has each one be apart of a mosaic of one larger image spread across the keys. You could have all the novelty keys done with smaller images especially the larger ones, then across the alpha-numeric keys you could have one large image.
