So, I'm designing a system to produce 1:4 scale keyboards that are as close as possible to the look, feel, and sound of the full scale originals. The first version will be used in miniature VT100 terminals and I hope to reuse much of the work for other designs and scales.
This is the head of a threadlog about my process, goals, mistakes, and progress.

4.75mm key spacing is spicy! My index finger is 20mm wide so hunt and peck typing won't work unless I implement some of the touch UI tricks like waiting for a cluster of switch events and then filtering out all but the most centrally positioned switch. So, my big finger would mash fghvt but the keyboard would only send g since it's the center switch.

Test plate en conditions réelles : la disposition est ultra confortable. Il y a juste un petit bug : les "modifiers" sur le côté sont en 1.5u au lieu de 1.25u. C'était donc une bonne idée de tester.

Drop has a new dark Solarized (my open source colorscheme) keycap set. It looks great & is discounted right now. (No affiliation with this set, they produced it on their own. Not a sponsored post, this is just me proud that my colorscheme continues to be loved by many).

Nouveau batch arrivé! J'attends les contrôleurs pour le début du mois prochain, et il va bientôt y avoir à la vente :

  • 4 Redox filaires
  • 3 Redox wireless
  • 7 trackballs 4 boutons + scroll ring

Customisation possible mais avec un à deux mois de délai d'attente (les pièces ne se trouvent pas au supermarché du coin)

Kailh Box Black are waaaaaay too hard!

I can feel my fingers getting more tired each keystroke I make.

I've now ordered some Gateron Milky Yellow Pro for my Planck, which I still need to get used to anyway...

I made a slight change… This required more work than I was anticipating 🫠

Now the theming is all tied together! Beware of my dessert themed battle stations!
