Update follow up: keys!
Following our previous update, thin on the keyboard, here's an update to that update (Inception!) with the photos of the keys at last.
These samples are en-route to the UK to undergo Phil's (Rick Dickinson Associates) scrutiny and feedback. They are missing the glossy finish on the lower step, and the texturing (including print) on the top. These are done once we give them the OK for the samples, and it's a straightforward surface job.
With this out of the way, we move to the T2 stage, which means the keyboard assembly and testing on the case.
Progress at last!
Here are the pictures, we should have a few more in time for the next update in two weeks with surface and print done.
Come to think of it, the last time keys such as these were made, it's some 32 years ago with the end of the Sinclair QL! This is reason to retro-celebrate!
