I saw this numpad on Drop and I absolutely want a whole keyboard board with that translucent look πŸ₯Ί

It took me less than a week to go from "gee, i love these new keycaps" to "fuck it i want to build my own translucent/old-Apple-lik keyboard"

It dawned on me that I guess you _could_ repurpose the A1048 Apple Keyboard with a modern PCB/switches/caps but... I have no use for a numpad 😞

I guess you could cut the plastic but that sounds...risky (and you'd need to put it back together and that'd be ugly af)

@Eramdam the fonts on those keycaps are πŸ”₯ tho, ngl

@Eramdam the switches beneath them however, ehhhhh. not a huge fan of how mushy mine is.

@null yeah, my only exposure to a keyboard from that era was, like, the desktop transculent one that shipped with the white iMacs and yeah, they weren't great switches

@Eramdam full numpad looks nice tho… but yeah x.x

heck this keyboard is peak aesthetic tho

@null i mean full numpad looks nice i really have no use for it and it's not worth the space loss :P
