Like you can't get a light-up Unicomp keyboard (imo a feature because it feels gimmicky to me), which is a non-starter for a lot of people.
If they made a discrete switch design (one not coupled to the keyboard) that would be cool, but it would also be quite the engineering challenge since I think the switches would have to be big and it would take a shit ton of work to get similar feel.
@a_breakin_glass That doesn't bug me a whole lot, honestly. The older Model F's had full N-key rollover, but they were capacitive and not membrane-based. Wish they'd bring that shit back. It was the bomb.
@a_breakin_glass not for the N-key rollover aspect, but because they felt even better than the Model M's.
@a_breakin_glass They're not common, and only one manufacturer makes them in the entire world... and they're /not/ cheap by any stretch of the imagination.
@woozle it could potentially have use on a battleship type keyboard
