NEW Custom Orthogonal Pattern PLUM Layout USB Keyboard








I don't imagine the switches in this are anything special (scissor, at best?). But at $19.99 + shipping, and being so specialized, I thought it might interest a few of y'all.

It's ortholinear, BTW, not orthogonal as the seller claims.

Fortunately, the ortholinear layout is so revolutionarily efficient, you could have Futabas in there (or even Peerlesses!) and it wouldn't matter, right?

If I could put some 3rd Gen FLS switches in this monstrosity, I'd be on it in a heartbeat!

It's PS2? Pick yourself up a PS2 to USB converter from Hasu and you'll be golden!

Nope,it's usb,a usb to usb converter would probably work,I'm leaning towards eventually grabbing another set of BFO-9000 pcb's and some Kailh Choc Jades  to make it a much nicer board.

Hasu does sell a USB to USB! And good to know, please post if and when you do the conversion!

I love how the middle row almost says "DON'T READ THIS".

Goofy how they photographed an unused product against a clearly used background, isn't it? Marketing's such a subtle art.

Well, I'm glad this post didn't get much attention. I've been looking for one of these for the better part of 2018.
