Which keycaps would you most like to see in a new keycap set?
More keycaps for FPS games like crouch, grenade, knife, etc. 22%  22%  [ 8 ]
Mac keycaps to fit my remapped keys (i.e. Command key for Caps Lock location) 3%  3%  [ 1 ]
Blank keycap sets with less keys than the full set so I can make my own and not pay as much...who needs 80 standard size keycaps anyways?! 3%  3%  [ 1 ]
Keys for programmers (Emacs has been suggested, any others? What are the legal implications if we wanted to do this for your suggestion?) 0%  0%  [ 0 ]
More skull keycaps! 5%  5%  [ 2 ]
Keys with homing bars (think F and J keys) for DVORAK or other layouts (specify layout) 5%  5%  [ 2 ]
Full sets with inverted printing (letters are dark, rest of keycap is lit up) 30%  30%  [ 11 ]
Other (please specify) 32%  32%  [ 12 ]

UPDATE 07/13/09: Polls are closed, we have the necessary info. Not sure if a new set is on the way anytime soon but we know what it will be when we do.

Just as the title says we are taking suggestions for new keycaps to be sold as add-on keycap sets here!

The most popular keycaps that I found in the forums are listed as choices as well as an 'Other' choice - if you pick that please post a suggestion below, I can't read minds (yet)!

Once we have a decent set of results we will consider offering new sets, probably in the $10 price range just like the others and will contain 10-15 new keycaps each with a keycap puller (to view the current sets click here).

Here are some quick links to threads that fueled this topic/poll to be posted:

I'd like to see the Mac set get upgraded with both a "Ctrl" and a "Command" keycap that fit the Caps lock key.

And...though it doesn't really do anything for me since I'm a sixer and not an EMACS guy, I bet there are those who'd see the Linux set get upgraded with "Meta" and "Super" keycaps and a "Ctrl" keycap that's the size of the Caps lock key.

But, you know, a set of caps lock keycaps with a blank, a Ctrl, and a Command keycap would be a definite "buy" for me.

Actually, I should have said that "meta" and "super" don't do anything for me, but I'd still want the big "Ctrl" in the Linux -- er, ^nix -- set.

Voted for homing bars, but I'd specifically want blank keys with them, since it seems like one problem with a full blank set on the 82-key keyboard is that you might end up hitting the wrong F key. This isn't such a big deal with a regular keyboard, of course, because they're split into groups of four.

Everything else I could use would, I think, only be of any use to me. (Maybe this would be, too, if nobody else is interested in a blank 82-key keyboard, but at least this has the potential to be used by other people.)

This is great news. I can't wait to see what comes out! I'm voting "other" because I would love to see a keycap set for the Legend (Mac version) in the sans font.

Specifically fantasy keycaps that would be good on games like Everquest, World of Warcraft and the like.

You know what the best keycap of all would be? A tiny light table. If the keycap had a removable base, so that you could print whatever image you wanted onto transparency film, then put it into the keycap and close it up, it'd be an easy way to get a presentable design.

Here's how I imagine it going together:

Code:

   ____
  /    \        <--- keycap with transparent top
 /      \

   ____         <--- design printed inverted on transparency film

   ____
  / || \        <--- key itself (snaps into keycap)

How about different colors of keys. Maybe a red, blue, green, white with a black stroke around the letters.

Unfortunately the results from this poll haven't pointed towards any one set and releasing multiple sets because one person wants one keycap would be very cost ineffective. As of now we will not be releasing any new sets of keycaps. Once demand for another set is great enough we will consider making a new set.
