Wild dreams thread

Honestly, have you tried the XMIT Hall Effect switches? They’re insanely smooth.


#43

Meh, I think ISO enter as a keycap can be better than ansi, but the big issue is that it is 1u further away on a standard iso layout. I think it’d be great on smaller biards closer to 40% where you can move enter and delete closer to the home row.

Keyboard dreams:

  • GMK Penta-shots with 4 different legends in 4 difference colors
  • SA with Maxkeys pricing but GMK-level compatibility, also maybe multishot legends
  • A cable that is literally 6ft of thick coils
  • A program/gui for QMK that does basically everything that BootMapperClient does including flashing, keymapping, macro-mapping, and led control
  • A tool that works better for USB connector crimping

IRL dreams:

  • 6th gen F100 shortbed stepside, built and turbo’d 300i6, T-56 magnum, flipped 9inch rear with 5.13s and at least 40"s, power disc conversion, AC, power windows, power locks, decent system
  • Late S30 with RB25DETT, stick R35 drivetrain + suspension, AC, power locks + windows
  • Rally Fighter
  • 1949-50 Power Wagon(gee, I might be a car/truck guy), built Cummins crate drivetrain, longbed
  • No student loan/other debt
  • Earn enough from my business to support myself and help support my family

Now that is a wild dream I can get behind!


#46

All you listed was negatives. How exactly is it better?


#47

I haven’t yet, unfortunately. But I’m talking about an absolute abscence of friction.


#48

They come about as close as we’re going to get in the near future. No contact leaves, just magnets. The only friction is the little bit against the housing

I want to recreate a mechanical version of the Fang gamepad using Cherry ML switches for the small keys (1-12) and 3d printed keycaps.


#51

MT3 Godspeed

Come on, @MiTo and matt3o. You can make this happen! :smile:


#52

+1!


#53

Transparent/light diffusing BKE Redux domes so I can satisfy my dumb desire for backlighting on this EC board without cutting off a corner of the dome :stuck_out_tongue:


#54

I’d like to design my own TKL with wood trim and off white aluminum body. Would go so well with a lot of the retro keycaps.


#55
  • I would love to have a switch with a lot longer than 4mm of travel distance to make it a really floaty sensation when typing.
  • Gmk Calm Depths
  • SA Calm Depths rerun. Row 3 and sculpted.
  • Matte black 60% QMK pcb with no bloat at a solid price
  • Available cherry profile alps caps

#56

Do you use right alt at all? I don’t and I’ve mapped it to windows key on my WLK boards.


#58

I’m a simple person.

  • Pandas under $3.50 per switch. Please hurry up Panda rerun.

  • The Mercury Rocketeer with the backspace in the HHKB spot.

  • NightFox keycaps to be not sold out.

  • A hot swap HHKB layout board to become widely available

  • Plastic HHKB replica case for MX switches with integrated plate and true 6u space

That’s it for now.


#59

Now that GMK Space Cadet is dropping, I am dreaming of MT3 Space Cadet :no_mouth:


#60
  • EnjoyPBT Terminal
  • More split-spacebar love in keysets, PCBs and plates
  • QMK support for everything

#61
  • Fully programmable 75% topre clone, with standard keycap sizes, that’s easy to mod/domeswap

  • Alps revival: new blue and brown alps available, and the production of new AEK-style PBT keycaps

  • I’d like if cherry started using their clear molds to make brown switches

  • Id like to see box royal switches come with 62g-67g weights stock

  • Id also like to see a thick-click box switch with a spring weight between jade and navy

Edited to add:

  • forgot: I want to see more polycarbonate/plastic top-mount (or integrated plate) options at KBD-fans level prices for 75%, 65%, and 60% boards. Id like to see more FC980 style cases available in general, too.

A programmable 3x3 (9 digit) macropad for the Roguelike game genre?
