[IC] Clear keycaps set
« on: Sat, 31 August 2013, 13:55:46 »
The recent GB by kinruan for switch cover top had clear switch covers and these look great with clear caps from SP, specially if you have applied stickers.

You can check out the images here: http://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=46446.msg1023490#msg1023490

So I'm jest gauging if there is enough interest for a GB for these keycaps:


If there is we can have a GB for these

Dont SP already sell this fairly cheap like $40?
unless they have some unforeseeable downside (like they're actually made of cream cheese cunningly disguised as ABS)

Yeah, they do for 104 keyset.

I figured, if we have good numbers we can get better pricing, and more options, maybe with legends?

feng sells the kbc clear sets also

i have those, due to their darker tone, unless you have LEDs installed the sticker color doesn't show on the transparent covers, only the color of the cover shows through.

I am interested. I don't know whether we need legends for these - they would limit the see trough effect wouldn't they?

Maybe engraving is an option?

I'll contact SP and find out.
