Gherkin with Panda switches and Semiotic keycaps
- Gherkin PCB plates
- Invyr Panda linear switches
- Alien Semiotic G20 keycaps from PMK
- WS2812B RGB LEDs
- Funko Pop Ripley and Alien
The Invyr Panda switches have very little wobble/twist. It is very obvious with the Semiotic keycap legends if your switches are not perfectly straight. I tried them on some Outemu Blue switches and it looked horrible with all the keys crooked. The keycaps look very straight and aligned on the Panda switches.
There are only 10 WS2812B LEDs instead of the 22 I used previously. The WS2812B LEDs are on rigid PCB strips, not the normal flexible adhesive strips. They are otherwise the same spacing as the 30/meter strips.
There are also blue 2x3x4 LEDs inside the switches. They shine up through the slot in the switch tops.
