From the IBM Terminal to the Desktop

Based on the profile from the iconic IBM beamspring terminals of the 1970s, this custom set is fully sculpted from dye-sublimated PBT in Hi-Profile. What's Hi-Profile, you ask? Many computer terminals of old were constructed with a slanted switch layout from front to back. Because of that slant, the keycaps sat at an angle atop the switches, too. This set is a reimagination of that unique slanted build, but optimized for modern keyboards. Thanks to some significant design work from Matt3o, 3D modeling, and a whole lot of elbow grease, we're proud to bring these innovative caps back for a second run.

Dye-Sublimated PBT Construction

Made from PBT plastic—long considered the superior keycap material—this MX-compatible set is both long lasting and resistant to the shine that occurs after long hours of typing. The legends are dye-sublimated so they won’t fade over the long haul. As for the layout, the set comes with two separate bottom row profiles for those who want a flat bottom row or prefer an angled one. The colorway is a combination of neutral grays and colorful accents for a subtle look on your favorite board.

About Matt3o

If you’ve paid attention to mechanical keyboards in recent years, you’ll know Matt3o. The designer of the WhiteFox keyboard, Granite DSA keycaps, and Retro SA keycaps (to name a few), he’s become fairly recognizable among the mech keys community. With this set, he saw an opportunity to explore the possibilities of Hi-Profile. It's not only an act of encouragement to other designers, but also an expression of Matt3o’s vision to “do Hi-Profile right.”
