KEYSET PRESENTATION BELOW!

Hello GeekHack.

I'm Lyqu1d from /r/MK and I came here to present you guys an electric feeling keyset. The PuLSE Keyset. It brings the contrast between a shocking blue tone and a black tone, over ABS DoubleShots keycaps, on the SA 3-1-2-3-4-3 profile. If there's enough interest, I'll run a group buy with Signature Plastics, /r/MK, deskthority and you guys.


Base Set - SHIFT KEYS ARE ROW 3

F-Row Stripe

Novelties


60% Stripe

ISO Pack

Numpack

Tsangan

Halfadox


Blanks

PuLSE Keyset Overview w/ Novelties and F-Row Stripe

Profile Overview


Shocking.

I hope y'all like it,

MiTo, aka Lyqu1d @ /r/MK

This is so similar to a set I've been experimenting with that I think I'll just give up.  You've obviously done it better than I could.

You said "light grey" in your description, but this looks pretty dark to me.  What profile were you considering?

Oh... That went straight into my feelings, seriously. Maybe you shouldn't give up already!

I mentioned grey and indeed looks dark. Its the GEW grey tone from Signature Plastics pallet. About the profile, I gotta talk to Melissa but maybe DCS.

It's the Cherry Replica font that's used on many keysets that exist. A lot of keyboards from the 80's and 90's feature this font and a lot of people love it!

Great idea! I think I can do an Orange GeekHack but I'm not sure about the G and H. Too many novelties I believe. But it's a possibility, I gotta check with SP how many Novelties are they willing to make.

EDIT: Added you sugestions, check OP for the pictures.

My advise:  don't pander to every whim of the community. You dilute your sets and could be in danger of not meeting MOQs.

Despite the lack of yellow, this set is strangely alluring.
"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

Have all these novelties been cut already? Custom legends will be cost prohibitive.

Regardless, Tsangan kit should include a stepped caps lock with a standard legend. It will look weird having one icon legend and a bunch of text mods around it.

I totally agree with this! I think it's getting to complex already. Too many extra keys that increase the costs too much.

Yeah, the novelty kit will be pretty expensive.

Therefore I think it's better to move the "~" and "\" keys to the regular Mod Kit like in every other GB  :thumb:

I like it, i'd definitely be in for a set of base, alpha. novelties** and tsangan :)
However as a nurse, I can't say i'm a fan of the pulse logo, looks a bit like right bundle branch block :P(works great for the set though! don't change it ^_^)
Personal preference time: DSA with centered text would look amazing in my opinion, however if I recall, not many people are fans of that.

** why is it a standard for the tilde(~) and backslash(\) keys to be part of the alpha set, it's very nonsensical, and means we have to get the extra set to get it to look nice :P

You might consider adding reverse mods and reverse alphas.

Problem is: if I offer inverted options for the Alphas and Mods, I'd be basically seling two keysets at the same time. They would compete with each other. Some people would buy the grey alphas, others the blue alphas. Some people would buy the grey mods and others, the blue mods. That said, I don't know if any of the options would tip. I think I'll keep it simple even though both look insanely great. Gotta hear more opinions about that.

I just emailed Melissa and now I'm waiting for her answer regarding the custom legends. Let's see how many they can allow me to create without hurting the costs.

Because a lot of people like this look. Also, by getting the Novelty Pack, you end up with a whole buch of fancy custom keys.

I think I'll keep it simple even though both look insanely great. Gotta hear more opinions about that.

I suppose you can look at it like that.

 But offering the reverse might also get you more orders by appealing to more people.

I agree with you but I'm looking at the inverted keyset right now and it's basically looking like a Black Miami.

Prefer original colors. Inverted doesn't give me as much punch as the blue text on grey.

The orange tons in the GH and the pulse is pretty good.
Someday somebody will best me, but it won't be today, and it won't be you.

I find it very difficult to really evaluate colourways on white backgrounds so did a quick comparison mock up:



Personally I prefer the original (top).

The blue alpha legends really pop and act as highlights whereas the concentrated blue in the Inverted scheme seems overwhelming to me.

Edit: the inverted navigation keys do look pretty sweet though ...

Nice job Hucifer. We share opinions and I believe most people prefer the top one version as well. We'll stick to it.

We will stick to top one, I don't believe inverted is gonna happen.

Are you talking about the iconic Windows flag?

Win 8 Logo!

Also I like the idea of inverted alphas because it would look cool on the Ergodox.
