Want Oblotzky’s GMK Space Cadet keycap set on a compact, reliable keyboard with all the bells and whistles? This version of the Tokyo60 mechanical keyboard is just like the original, only now it’s decked out with the Space Cadet keycaps, which are based on a computer used at MIT in the 1980s. What’s more, the keyboard features an anodized Cadet-gray case to match the caps. As for the frame, the Tokyo60 sports a sleek, seamless design. Constructed with just two pieces of 6000-series aluminum, the case is machined at a 5-degree angle. This angle, in combination with the keycaps, is optimized for an ergonomic feel. Thanks to the hot-swappable PCB, you can swap in new switches in minutes. With no need for soldering, the Tokyo60 is a fun, easy-to-assemble side project—not to mention it can be completely reprogrammed and comes with bottom-lit RGB LEDs.
The idea behind the Tokyo60 was to create a keyboard that focuses on one design, one layout, and a handful of colors, rather than offering countless combinations that can lead to complications. Everything from the feel of the case to the anodized finish to the sound of bottoming out is a reflection of the time and effort that went into the design. Plus, with the GMK Space Cadet keycaps, you get German-made ABS plastic with custom legends that won’t fade over time.
Though it comes fully programmed (once you assemble it), the Tokyo60 can be completely reprogrammed via the QMK firmware. It also has customizable bottom-lit RGB LEDs, or you can add the LED diffuser to make it stand out even further. What’s more, at checkout, you’ll be able to add on a wide range of switches to get just the feel you want. The switches can be popped into the plate with ease thanks to the hot-swappable PCB.
