@hughrawlinson Yes they’re actually 40% slimmer! Here’s the comparison below👇

I got the k3 with red optical switches but ordered an extra set of white ones to switch them. Here’s the full optical switches specs: keychron.com/collections/low-p

I believe that machine learning is inevitable and that it will be incredibly useful in a variety of ways, but "training it by stealing artists' work without their permission" is both unethical and not likely to lead to much value. There are other, better ways.

@ParadeGrotesque Ohhh that will truly change my appreciation of this haha. I have to go watch it now! Hopefully it’s the real thing 😅

@hughrawlinson Totally, I was so not expecting that before I started shopping for one haha 😅 It was a fun rabbit hole to fall into though. There’s even douzaines of Youtube videos of key sound tests!😄

I really like my k3 so far. It’s extremely soft with the white optical so I barely have to touch the key to register the stroke (which I like). Super quiet too. I only wish they had a laptop layout but I changed the keycaps for regular keys (instead of low profile) on the right column and it does the trick!

Just rewatched Back to The Future 2 and what troubled me the most was a 2015 where everything flies but no one has a smart phone.

Also when are we launching the double-ties trend? We’re 7 years late on this already!

@hughrawlinson Let’s start here! I got a sweet Keychron k3 with optical white switches this Summer and I love it.

While shopping for it, I discovered about half of the *entire Internet* is dedicated to mechanical keyboards apparently. It was somehow both troubling and comforting all at once 😐

@erwinrossen Clothes and doors can also be used by criminals. Where do they draw the line?
