[Computex 2016] Zeal's picture thread
« on: Sun, 29 May 2016, 14:04:54 »
Let me know what you want to see.. Will be heading over in about 30hrs from this thread post.

For your reference, last year's picture / Q&A thread (non-mobile friendly, beware): https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=72472.0

Cherry Booth:




Jackpot



NOT MX clears :P





Ducky/Vortex Booth

Ducky Year of the Monkey. Dual anodized aluminum on the surface in black & gold.




Ducky Shine 6 poster. Includes built in adjustable mouse bungee.


Ducky Air. Bluetooth 3.0. LEDs turn off when in Bluetooth mode.


Ducky Calculator. Works as a calculator and numpad when plugged in.


Ducky Dyesub PBT keycaps


Ducky Secret M is around 10% lighter than the original Ducky Secret. Back part is now double shot PBT plastic for the extra RGB LED to shine through.



Japanese Omrons


Vortex

Clone of SA profile PBT from Vortex. Left handed TKL.



Clone of DSA profile PBT from Vortex. Extremely smooth surface compared to SP's DSA caps.






Not sure if Vortex OEM brand or subdivision...Split 60% keyboard felt a bit uneven (OCD triggered)






Flaretech clicky & linear wooting keyboard (left on the table of Ducky booth)
The clicky switch didn't have any tactile feeling or kickback. Just the sound of a click and the faintest click feedback ever.


Apparently Ducky designs the PCB for Flaretech, which would explain why it's at the Ducky booth. They could be sharing the same OEM as well.


i-Rocks Booth
MX stem ALPS-like switches
The clicky blue switch had the alps high tactile point, but lacked the 'umph' of the strong kickback. Depressing the switch past the tactile point also felt effortless, as if the stem collapses to the bottom like Topre. Weird feeling for sure.






KBParadise Booth

JD45s




Topre Booth

Topre told me only 200x of the following keyboard will be made... "just for fun"


Realforces


Can set different actuation points, namely 1.5mm, 2.2mm, 3mm. Topre rep told me that the "A" legend on Realforce RGB's will use the /\ legend. Expected release date is October 2016, before Christmas.





Varmilo
1.8kg (4lb) full brass keyboard...Covered in a firm and shiny coating, not rubbery. Moulded brass with a brushed finish.



Totoro!

Hard case for your keyboard. Final production version will use EVA foam top and bottom.

Wooting keyboards is supposed to be there. Probably Adomax also, who makes their switches -- they were there last year, and they are based in Taiwan.
Do please try them and tell us how they feel. Off-centre key presses, stabilisers and switch grittiness would be interesting to know about. In the long run, switch internals and what kind of plastic the sliders are made of.

I have started geeking out about mini-ITX format PC cases with interesting layouts. Cryorig has a couple new ones that they are showing at Computex, and Jonsbo also probably.

New 40% from vortex?

https://www.instagram.com/p/BGDGyEIJDNV/

Just looked at their instagram.
Pretty sick that they have their own molds for DSA and SA profile caps.
I wonder if we could do a groupbuy for those since IvanIvanovich He-who-shall-not-be-named has used Vortex caps for buys.

Those DSA and SA profile keycaps is a welcoming thing for the community. If they are able to make good quality stuff that are same or better than SP, we could have more sets for groupbuys at a faster rate.

Hey guys, sorry, collapsed as I returned home at 9pm (headed straight to Computex right after I came off the 5am flight). It's now 3am and what better time to kill during jet lag than to edit/upload pictures? Will be updating OP shortly. I didn't take many pics of babes yesterday, usually do that on the last day.

Quick question: Was kind of hard to tell in the Year of the Monkey pics, does it have those stupid "fins" on the top of the board like the Shine 6 does? And were you able to tell if they had the PBT caps on the two boards? Wondering what those are like.

No fins for the mouse bungee. Only the top case is anodized aluminum, base is still plastic. Both YOTM and Shine 6 used ABS DS caps.

Awesome, thanks for the reply! The Ducky promo they put out last week said PBT caps on Shine 6/YOTM, which is why I asked. I figured it might be a little early to have them in production, though. Really hope they have them available when they go on sale. Would definitely step things up.

Oh ****, I just noticed the Shine 6 promo booth shows a side view with a cutout on the side of the case to let the RGB through. That's really interesting. Was that on the YOTM too?

Wow nice to see topre is bringing the adjustable actuation point to market.  I remember there was a lot of speculation about it last year.

Also ty for booth babez, you really know how to make a man happy.

No, I think you're right. This is maybe a subsidiary. The contact info at the bottom of the site has the same address as the Vortex business cards.  I think the phone number is the same too. Also, if you try emailing that address then it just bounces back as a non-existent email address.

Clone of SA profile PBT from Vortex. Left handed TKL.

Show Image

Yay, yet another keycap design made by cloning a clone of a wrong/broken clone of a pretty good original. This is what happens when people with no understanding of human hand anatomy or biomechanics make input devices, without comprehending the point of the design or the relevant constraints.

The original sculpted spherical keycap designs by IBM were great:


... as were other similar designs from the 1970s by Honeywell, SMK, Teletype, ITW, Alps, etc. e.g.


In the 1970s, pretty much everybody was at least able to copy something without screwing it up (except Fujitsu, sadly), even if they weren’t ambitious or creative enough to invent something new.

But then somehow Signature Plastics’s precursor applied their tilted-stem sculpted keycaps to straight-stem Cherry (and other) switches, and in the 90s–present, all the sculpted spherical caps have been this kind of bull****:


Topre’s version does this. Now Vortex too? :(:(

(The stupidest part is that SP has two keycap shapes, SS and DSS, which are pretty good. They just don’t make them anymore.)

Whats up with dat Totoro keyset Zeal?
Is this an actual keyset by any chance or a personal board for display at computex?

You can't just post pics like that without a backstory.
My girlfriend is a huge fan, and the pressure on me has been real since she's seen that pic...  xD

Edit: Are these the totoro pbts that were on taobao arround 2013? Would definitely appreciate it if anyone has some info on these!

Because it has an XInpute mode so it can be used like a controller, including analog inputs.

Thanks for the pics, Zeal!

That Flaretech keyboard don't look like Wooting. Their only model is TKL and has an exposed plate.
So that means that there will be a Flaretech keyboard from Ducky?  ;D
Too bad that the clicky switches aren't very tactile...

what the **** realforce. take that backlight **** back to the mx peasants.
I don't mind that they build them, but I do think that they shouldn't soil the Realforce brand name with something that flashy in a less than stellar case.
If Topre owns the Typeheaven brand then they should use that.

Why does the "just for fun" realforce have playstation and xbox buttons on the side labels?
Those enable gamepad emulation mode, turning the WASD keys into an analogue gamepad in Playstation or Xbox mode respectively.

Topre switches are actually capable of being analogue, as long the electronics support it, and this keyboard's electronics does.
The use of the conical spring over the capacitance pads creates a practically linear relationship between travel and capacitance. In normal typing mode the switches actuate when capacitance has reached a threshold.

The reason why there are two buttons and not just "gamepad" is because Microsoft (and I think Sony too) made their protocols proprietary.
Microsoft has been promoting its Xinput API heavily to game developers on Windows, and that API supports only their proprietary protocol. The older API that supports USB HID gamepads is called "DirectInput".
Many games support "XInput gamepads" but not "DirectInput gamepads".
I am not entirely sure how the Sony's gamepads work... and I think that the XBox uses DRM to lock out third-party gamepads, but I am not entirely use.

You can use Xinput with every gamepad that I'm aware of. Even the Sony controllers, through use of third party software. Sony doesn't have official PC support, so windows just recognizes their pads as generic HID gamepads with DirectInput.

I am disappointed in that mini-ITX systems are missing from this Computex. Almost every motherboard, graphics card and PC case has been huge. All desktop PCs have been water-cooled gaming-monsters or NUCs -- nothing in-between.

- Oh, is that a mini-ITX case?
- No, that is yet another GPU enclosure.
- But why is it then so much bigger than a graphics card?
- That is for the RGB lighting.

Last year the market was super saturated with MITX cases.
Considering those cases don't appeal to the primary demographic I doubt they have much more coming.

But then where are the really good ones? The ones that can hold their own next to the NCASE M1?

The "primary demographic" wants a laptop ... or they buy a mITX or mATX desktop from Dell or Lenovo.
