I am looking for some American keyboard manufacturers to create a new brand of keyboards. Trying to get a business off the ground and this is literally ground zero.. please drop any info you have, topics or projects in geekhack, or any crumbs that can eventually lead me to the right rocks to look under.

Thank you
Regards

you're gonna get a lot of meme responses because this has historically gone poorly

the saying is that there's no money in keyboards

We don't know you.
You currently have nothing.
You offer us nothing.
You ask us to send you business ideas and opportunities for free.
So that you, not us, could make money.
So yeah,
Seriously bruh

that's some people's business model and it worked out pretty well for some here... :D

not the first time I hear "send me your switch plate designs, I sell them to you for $50 from a manu someone else gave me earlier"

Generally I'd like to think this is a community first, so when someone with zero community presence asks "hey i wanna make money off of you, tell me how to do it," it probably is not going to be perceived very well.

Don't you have anything better to do with your life than yammering away on the minute details of a keyboard? I have both an M and an F that I picked up at goodwill for nothing 15 years ago and for the first time yesterday I googled about them and found 'enthusiast' (here an euphemism for retarded) websites where idiots bounce off the walls telling each other about the orgasms per second they have when using them.

And 'using' is an overstatement with 90% of those morons. Most are busy opening them, cleaning the last atom of dirt off them, 'restoring' what doesn't need any restoration, 'upgrading', thinking of names for them, 'modding', taking photos, showing them off, in general jerking off about the clicky sensations and the superb accuracy of their typing and other general uber-dorkiness. What I never found there was anything useful to do with them, ie. actually program a computer.

Go type 'messenger lectures' in youtube and see what smart people look like, then kill yourself disassembling your One True Keyboard (TM) for the nth time and swallowing all the buckling springs.

And then mail one of your remaining model Fs to me.
The great question is, shall we surrender to our surroundings, or shall we make our peace with nature and begin to make reparations for the damage we have done to our air, our land, our water?
Restoring nature to its natural state is a cause beyond party and beyond factions. It has become a common cause of all the people of America.

My bad didn稚 think of it like that, yeah honestly I just been re-reading and thinking over and I just want to delete this, cringing so hard at myself rn, this site is amazing and I feel like I知 disrespecting it with the angle I came in at. Definitely have love for this community and want to learn a lot more about all of the parts and process and pass it onto others
