Bro Bot V1 Image / Information Thread
« on: Sat, 15 August 2015, 20:21:42 »
I always thought of creating a thread for my favorite design, the Bro Caps Bro Bot V1. Bro Caps experimental and testing phase design. Before he made his amazing V2 design.
Seeing Vespersaints thread inspired me to finally create this. I've collected many many colors over time with a lot of hard work and messaging people like crazy.
I have also gone through all posts on the forum and I think I have most of the photos posted. I have uploaded them all for your convenience.

If you know anything about V1s that I dont have in here, please feel free to let me know and Ill add it!  :thumb:

Dustin, I didn't realise that your collection was so immense.

Fantastic work!  :)

I sadly wasn't around for the V1 iteration, but if you would educate me, where they as hard to come by as Bros latest designs today? I know the fan base has increased, but still interested how hard they where to get.

Thank You Sir! Unfortunately I caught the very tail end of the V1s. But, it was sort of easy for people to get rid of them because V2s were a big new thing. They were pretty rare though, 1-3 of each color it seemed. So very hard to get a collection going. From reading the old posts it seems they sold quick but not as quick as now a days. Someone that was around can chime in maybe and mention how quick it was.

I barely got in the game before V2 was retired and V1s are rarely seen so I thought there weren't many, but clearly there are.  Unsurprisingly Dustin has lots of them, but every pic?  That's dedication!

Looking forward to seeing them all in one place :)

I feel like this should maybe be merged with Vespers thread, though how did you manage to get the text under the image?? When ever I tried the text just sat next to the image, which makes for strange spacing

This thread needs more pictures.

Where have all the V1s gone?
"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
