vintage Keytronic capacitive spotted in the wild
« on: Fri, 20 December 2013, 17:36:41 »
I spotted this at work today, I figured Id share it. I believe its from the late 70's. I think the switches feel pretty good. Linear, very hard bottom out.

Excellent looking board, love that real hexadecimal numpad. Shame the keys aren't easily transferable to more modern boards, but still very cool.

Awesome caps! Does the inner part can be separated from the outer shell of the cap?
(some old IBMs are made that way)

ALWAYS looking for cool and interesting switches
I take requests for making keyboard converters (i.e. *old keyboard* to USB).
