If anyone is interested woodkeys.click has a case and pcb for sale now. Its pretty expensive but really pretty.
I hope it doesn't need a bottle of lube to be smooth..
I want one... and don't have a CLUE what I would do with it... can someone please tell me, using small words, so that I understand? I'm not into electronics, although I could possibly figure it out, with instructions... and lots of pretty pictures...

HELP!

i have one sitting right in front of me, next to a pen and my usb-stick and some stuff lying around on my desk. it doesnt serve a purpose other than looking good ;)
just get one and be happy looking at it, pressing it, its awesome even without a real function!

That's what I may need to do with mine.. just have it sitting on my desk.

For those interested, I found the datasheet for the switch, which includes the dimensions that will be helpful in designing a PCB for it. If it's one key only, you won't need to mess with key matrix etc., so it should be easy. I'll probably do one when I have time. I think I'm gonna be using a pro micro and flash qmk firmware in, maybe try to put some RGB leds on the board.

All the spec sheets for the Big Switches are available directly from my site. :)

Alright, just ordered 1 for each. Now how do I make the switch functional? Is there a PCB for them?

Wowww~ Thanks for the link m8! I'll make it as play/pause media button lol
This is lit.
Can someone post a banana next to the keycap for scale

I don't own one of these, but if you watch this video at
https://youtu.be/HE0un0BoUwo and go to around 10:30, you can see it with PCB in a guys hands for some perspective.

Hope it helps!
Here is a shoutout; maybe have the drops for artisan keycaps during the big switch drop? So people can actually buy? (I'm still very sore about that drop failing because it got 9/10 orders.)

Also I hope we get a nice pcb/stand like the woodkeys one soon. I really wanna use it as an alarm clock somehow.
I did a writeup of how I programmed mine!

Here is a picture of it in action (gif, massdrop doesn't like anything > 10mb).

Paired with a woodkeys PCB & Case, you can program them to do pretty cool things!!!
I have mine set to send (WINKEY + L) to my desktop, so when I'm getting up from my computer - I hit the button & It locks my screen!!!

Dude. That looks pretty dope.
And intimidating. LOL

If MassDrop sold them like that, I'd buy one. Fricken awesome!!!!
I wish whoever did the photo copy for massdrop would put a hand or a banana or something next to these so we can get a feel for how big they are.
