Another week, another new keycap profile

Melgeek announced their new, Cherry-like “MCR” profile. Could be fun. It is only .4mm taller than Cherry and has a wider surface.

Coming in double shot ABS first, before PBT. Launching by September.

No colorway details. Could be good!

Looks similar to DCS? It would be fun to try this profile out.

There’s a bit of sphericalness to those tops. Pretty freaking cool.

Yeah, they remind me quite a bit of what I’m still working on. A low-mid spherical profile. Some of you may remember my early stages here. Can’t show the progress just yet.

Anyway, the more the better.

If these are compatible with north facing switches, that’d be awesome.

Melgeek just posted some pictures on their discord. I don’t have high hopes tbh but am curious to see what their kitting looks like.

The profile looks super interesting. I wish everyone’s eyes weren’t trained for Cherry fonts, which I expect to see on a set like this. The font would take some getting used to.

I see “MCR” and I think My Chemical Romance…

I wonder what MCR stands for. Keycaps look alright I guess :thinking:

Might be better in the ‘things that make us go hmm’ thread but I felt because the standout feature here is the keycap profile that it would fit in this thread. Kinda looks like a modified version of the typewriter style keycaps to me.

My kid would love that :smile_cat:

Melgeek launched their group buy today. A very interesting profile - the font, which they highlight as a differentiator, is bound to generate strong feelings.
