Let’s see your coolest boards for example some crazy IBM custom or cool resin keycaps you made just anything you find interesting.
I don’t know what I’m looking at but I know it’s awesome why is it so different are there advantages to the shift and tab and caps keys.
I got the switches working on a modern keyboard build since they are essentially just ‘recoloured’ SKCC switches with minor differences (yes, recolouring isn’t a new concept). Here’s a cursed picture.
But no, there are zero advantages to this layout…it’s just weird to me lol
Not exactly unique - but probably the most interesting board in my collection is an old “breadbin” Commodore 64 that’s been converted into a functional USB keeb.
I have a Rackmount MiniVan - a low profile tray mount Minivan case with a handle. Probably my most unique one for now, until I get my hands on @Dr.Doof 's PooPooPeePee Keyboard Carnival Round 3 in about a month or so!
Speaking of poo poo, this is probably my favorite board right now, my hhkb poo poo pee pee 3d printed by a friend, very bouncy, accoustically decent, and I love that color!
I’m quite proud of this Reuters, however, I wouldn’t use something like this as a daily driver.

(P.S.: I was very lucky with this one and managed to get it for a few bucks only which added to my excitement.)
Here’s a unique build I did that was fairly cheap but I ended up loving in the end. It was a G81-1000, but I put a G80-3000 repo PCB in it & painted the case grey. Used hyperglide Reds with 55g prog spring in them for the switches.
This is my favorite thing now, so much fun.
Love Metropolis on this!
I think thats metropol-ish
Lol yeah … that’s why I didn’t highlight the keycaps in the description should’ve responded when someone did, though in my defense I am waiting for metro r2. The keycaps are that hk brand, but I had bought em before knowing the story of the company and wasn’t about to just throw them out. Might be a bit heretical but I def am enjoying the feel of pbt at least compared to a set of gmk nines that I’ve thoroughly shined.
Is this a custom case or did you get it cnc’d? id love to get my hands on one and what are the caps?
