Ducky PBT caps and Backlighting
« on: Fri, 29 August 2014, 12:01:10 »
Specifically the ones with etched legends -  are you able to see the lettering with backlighting ? I am tempted to get in on that MD if it works the way I think it would.

You can sort of see the legends, if the lighting is right.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís 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

Don't know if you are talking about these but here is a picture of the blue and grey one backlit. Just a heads up though these colors are not available right now only the pink and whites I think.
