Speaking about the Canvas XDA keyset group buy, on my last update I mentioned that I wasn’t happy with the grey/beige combo we had while the colored (Bauhaus) colors were spot on. This morning I received many different samples and shades of beige/grey from the manufacturer and I chose the tones that truly represent our project and are true to the concept. Photos aren’t great but I experimented looking at the keycaps in various lighting environments and I came to the conclusion that the combination below, out of everything we possibly have as an option, is perfect.
I also noticed that the color samples are very close to the Godspeed SA keycap set that we created last year – shipping should begin in just a couple weeks, hopefully you’ll be receiving the set soon! Due to some similarities between Godspeed and the samples I’ve got for PBT, I’d like to research if there’s any interest for a PBT/XDA version of Godspeed. Some people missed the keycap set group buy, others aren’t too fond of ABS so I think that it could be a good combination. Let me know what you guys think, if there’s enough interest I’ll go ahead and start a regular interest check in the platforms you’re already used to. Leave a comment below telling me what you think about it! I mocked it up using the Klown Keeb layout, hope you enjoy it.
I’m also going to be hosting a small keyboard giveaway next week, bundled with a couple items that I believe starters in this hobby would love to own! I love the mechanical keyboard community and I’d like to giveback with this small giveaway. I’ll share the specific rules when I announce it in a couple days, but for now I’d like to invite you to sign up to my newsletter so you won’t miss a thing.
