Going along with my goal to build a Modern bezel-less keyboard, I’d love a new key cap project similar to Devlin’s out-of-stock and ortho only [Teletype Z-series] but hopefully having non-ortho mods and more compatibility. The caps harken back to the old-style typewriter caps, and the first mech caps at the dawn of the PC industry. I’d hazard a guess that they’d pretty much have to be flat/uniprofile.
Here’s Devlin’s TeleType:
and Apple’s original iigs/iic and bashful prototype keys,
and Tandberg’s keycaps (though Tandberg seemed to favor only 1/1.5/2u caps:
and rounding out the keycap porn, Rama’s GRID caps (again, only good for ortho boards):
I really enjoy this aesthetic, especially as it pertains to making bezel-less keyboards more streamlined and good looking re: the possibility of having the edges of the caps align with the case.
Thoughts? Is anybody actually doing this, and I just have bad google-fu?
