I used to like the heavy PS2 keyboards. If I remember correctly, they had a solid clunk.

I dig Topre I’ve always thought about pulling the trigger on a Happy Hacking but just couldn’t pull the trigger. I think I’ve landed on my happy endgame anyway.

I’ve tried quite a few layouts and the one that I like the best is the OLKB Planck. I’ve tried it’s bigger brother the Preonic and Let’s Split and a few ergo layouts. All really cool all worth checking out. But I enjoy the simplicity of the Planck and the one piece unit. I always wanted to force myself to treat my computer like an extension of Vim and with the QMK firmware I can program everything to work “just right”.

So I’ve already sold a bunch of my old keebs and caps and just have a few different versions of the Planck in my collection now, and I couldn’t be happier. OCD satiated for now.

I’ve been sorely tempted by Ergodox, myself. Now that I have a dedicated desktop machine it even makes at least a little sense!

The sound of each key has carefully been sampled, and is played back while simulating the proper distance and direction for a realistic 3D sound palette of pure nostalgic bliss.

I want to build this with Bluetooth. https://reddit.com/r/MechanicalKeyboards/comments/90v55e/assembled_centromere/
