Photo request: blank caps
« on: Sun, 05 March 2017, 12:58:14 »
A friend was visiting and I was showing him some of my boards. When I brought out a board with blank keycaps he doubled over with laughter, thinking it was a joke. I tried to explain that lots of people, including me, like the clean look of blank keycaps and that typing on them is not an issue. I'm not sure he believed me so...

Help me impress my friend with how great a keyboard can look with blank keycaps. Show him your blank boards.

I'll start...

not even close to my most egregious blank setups, but here are some recent shots.





i've been using blanks exclusively on my daily board for like 5 years now. occasionally i used to switch it up when i was using cherry stuff but since i went topre, i haven't bothered with legends.

These are known as "otaku" keyboards, if you want to throw the correct colloquial term at your friend.

https://deskthority.net/wiki/Otaku
"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

Almost all my boards are blank with the exception like 3 out of 9. Only scrubs have legends Kappa
