SA Symbiosis 2.0 Keycap Set
Note: this is a preorder. Orders are expected to ship in September 2019. Check for weekly updates here. Extra stock is available for pre-order.
SA Symbiosis 2.0 is inspired by the famous Space Cadet keyboard, a massive and complex Hall Effect input device used with innovative LISP-based machines.
To follow along with a keyboard re-creation process paired with this project - check out the Input Club Symbolic Keyboard Waitlist.
LISP was the first programming language to treat code as data (word of the day: homoiconicity). That paradigm shift allowed for boundless creativity in applications and data structures. The Space Cadet's tumultuous development alongside LISP, and its ultimate rarity, mark the language's unique impact on computing history.
Geekhack's xblackdog designed the first round of SA Symbiosis, which used uniform R3 profile, in 2015. With his permission, hhkbp2 is raising the bar.
SA Symbiosis 2.0 provides an updated experience with full sculpting and improved legends / sublegends (which more accurately reflect the Space Cadet keyboard). It's also available with uniform R3 in the CADR keyset. New novelties, a Vim pack (because not everyone uses Emacs), Ergodox keys, and other options round out the expanded selection.
