Rubber Keycaps

 Share

Hello, I have recently been looking around for a new set of key caps for my keyboard. I was looking around for some good quality ones, and stumbled upon rubber key caps. but it was only for 18 keys. this immediately caught my eye and i want to get a full set of them. BUT i cant seem to find a full set anywhere. Where can i find a full set (10 key-less or full size) of cherry MX rubber key caps.

These are typically used as accent pieces to make gaming buttons stand out, which is why they are only sold in such small sets. I've not seen a full set of these.

I thought that was true, but it seems like such a cool idea! using rubber to type on instead of plastic? is probably way more comfortable i assume.

all I know is that rubber, when used for a long time, tends to get sticky

It's also probably cheaper to make keycaps with plastic.

i've never used rubber keycaps, but i can't imagine that typing on them would feel great.

Judge the product by its own merits, not by the Company that created it.

i'd imagine they feel like a slightly tactile, slightly heavy rubber dome 

not a pleasant typing experience by any means

dont think they would feel mushy at all unless is really soft rubber

 

actually kinda interested in trying some rubber ones out might have to find these keycaps to try out
