Step into a world full of bright lights and dark shadows, and artificial intelligence and genuine ‘80s nostalgia with MiTo’s latest set: GMK Laser. Designed by the creator of XDA Godspeed, XDA Canvas, and DSA Legacy, GMK Laser is dripping with futuristic colors and cultural references from the cyberpunk past. Look for allusions to William Gibson’s Neuromancer, Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner, and even Stranger Things. The alphas, done in violet, pair gracefully with the midnight purple modifiers. Brought to life by hot pink and teal legends, the set looks like it was shot straight from the barrel of a laser gun.

Made in Germany using custom Cherry tooling, GMK Laser is compatible with a variety of different keyboards, including those with non-standard and standard layouts. The keycaps themselves are made from 1.5 millimeter-thick doubleshot ABS for longevity and strength.
A complete pack of US ANSI and UK ISO alphas and modifiers, including keycaps to cover virtually any 40% keyboard, ortholinear devices such as the Planck and Preonic, various 60% layouts, tenkeyless, 65%, 75% and full size keyboards. There’s an extra 2u SHIFT, 2.25u SHIFT for Leopold users, various 1.75u keycaps including an R3 ENTER, an R3 1.5u FN, an ISO ENTER keycap, and non-standard 6u (center stem) and 7u spacebars. Depending on your desired layout, you may need to add the Spacebars kit in addition. The Cyberdeck kit already comes with a 6u center stem, plus 6.25u and 7u laser purple spacebars.
The Gaijin kit offers a mix of state-of-the-art doubleshot Latin and Japanese legends, plus numbers and punctuation symbols. This kit will cover ANSI and ISO layout variations, and it was conceived after iconic cyberpunk aesthetics like loud streets flooded with neon lights and electronic displays projecting streams of code. Due to the manufacturing techniques implemented, the legends will never fade.
The Kobe kit delivers a streamlined minimalist look inspired by the iconic architecture of the Japanese port city of the same name. It features clean lines that effortlessly communicate the message. Japanese alphanumericals and punctuation symbols are available, together with symmetry keycaps for a more consistent look. The doubleshot legends won’t fade away even under the most challenging conditions.
This kit features classic designs from ’80s pop culture and the cyberpunk genre, which was the inspiration for Hands on Deck: The Laser GMK short story by MiTo & JoTo. Created based on extensive community feedback, the set includes extra accents for the ESC, WASD, ENTER, as well as arrow keycaps.
First presented in the XDA Canvas project, this all new doubleshot kit contains a special selection of modifiers, featuring MiTo’s futurist hand-designed iconography.

This kit contains a selection of keycaps to appropriately cover the majority of European keyboard layouts such as Nordic and German. There’s a hot pink accent ISO ENTER keycap included.
Consisting of blanks, this kit has enough keycaps to appropriately act as modifiers for split keyboards such as the ErgoDox. The Ergo can be combined with Gaijin/Kobe kit to provide full support to split ergonomic keyboards. There's also a pair of R3 blank keycaps included, so Planck users can combine this kit with Gaijin/Kobe and achieve a blank layout.
Appropriate keycaps to provide coverage for the Colemak and Dvorak non standard layouts are available in this kit, which is best combined with the Cyberdeck kit.
This kit has convex 1u and 2u keycaps (for ortholinear keyboards), 6u center stems, plus 6.25u and 7u spacebars. There’s also midnight purple 1.25u, 1.75u, 2.25u and 2.75u (neither of them are convex)keycaps to offer spacebar coverage for split keyboards such as the VE.A. and DZ60.
