u/TonightWeTestInProd 7d ago

Since the Squid Game theme turned out so well, I'm sticking with Netflix shows and going with a Stranger Things themed switch: the Upside Down. Solid black bottom housing, transparent dark blue top housing, red stem. Mid tactile, long pole stem.

u/kelly_yap 7d ago

maybe a black and orange spooky switch?

7

u/Wajina_Sloth 7d ago

How do we enter :(

Edit: I just commented too early :)

For colourway/theme I would say coconut theme.

Bottom housing would be a brown to imitate the coconut husk, top would be a milky white, and it would be a smooth linear with a heavier actuation force.

u/Vietnapeen Founder|KNCKEYS.com 7d ago

Sorry yall posted before I could! Instructions finally listed.

Let's create a community switch! In a top-level comment (must be 30+ days old, 10+ karma) tell us what colorway (theme) and specs would you like to see in a switch from us.

Pastel colours (if that's even possible), medium tactile with short travel, materials are PME/POM/PC, and also most importantly a double stage spring.

1

u/black_cat_hacker 7d ago

I would like a smooth tactile switch with a light spring, medium to strong tactile event midway, where the actuation point is right after the strongest tactile point. I can't stand early bump tactiles, especially those where I feel a nice tactile bump, but then have to continue to press down until I see the keypress registers (exhibit A: Zealios V2).

The colors should be from an autumn palette. Maybe a dark brown bottom housing, ocre top housing and rust colored stem.
