We've updated our FB page as well as the KS page with latest news regarding where we're at for the keycaps and the internal A1200 keyboards.
We need to delay these campaigns, as of now we haven't found any suitable solution regarding the overall manufacturing costs of the keycaps.
As some of you may know, Amiga keycaps have a special "mount" made by Mitsumi back in the time. And mitsumi stopped manufacturing these a decade ago. As this kind of mounts are not manufactured anymore, this lead to build 8 types of diff keys molds!
Why 8 types ?
Because the Amiga line of computers have 5 diff profiles of keys (diff height), and there is also 3 special keys.
So based on our last month work, a full Amiga keycaps set compatible with all Amiga computers (Except the A600 and some early A500,A2000) would cost around €141! And that is for a minimum of 1000 ordered sets.
You can find more infos regarding this issue on our FB page or over the KS page.
We still continue to work on that to find a better and less costly solution.
Thanks for your support and share our efforts and KS page with all your contacts and friends
