like that UV?

yeah, they make uv led's, i've used them in some other projects, i'm not sure how easy it would be to find 100+ 3mm flangless ones though.

find some reactive caps, and paint your plate a nice neon color, would be sweet.

Well i would like purple backlighting on my keyboard but kinda hard to do that on a buckling spring.

I can understand the high price on feng's silver snakes and caps like that simply due to "artisan crafting" and material cost, but not for limited edition plastic. no offense intended towards those who are into cc caps. I've spent loads of money on other things that plenty of people wouldn't agree with. to each their own. I'm just trying to understand what's up with those specific caps is all.

you know each CC is done by hand from Clackfactory himself right?
The detailing and what not for the mold and everything.

Some people decide its a "Rare" piece of art, so they believe its valuable. Yes its "plastic", but its still hand crafted plastic.
Also because they are done by hand and aren't mass produced per say, that gives it a limited number of availability.
With demand high and limited availability, prices will be high.

Also with many collectors not willing to part with specific "rare" clacks, when one of the rarer ones go on the market, it causes big bidding wars.

I myself had never purchased a clack before not from CC himself, i've traded clacks for clacks in the past. But I can admit last week i paid $125.00 for the dark grey clack that was put on sale by jcrouse at GH because of how insanely difficult it is to find one of those clacks these days. It just matches perfectly with my Graphite 700R so i had to scoop it up.

most of my friends and family think im crazy for owning 7 keyboards but what can i say, its the mindset of a collector when they're passionate about their hobby. (though i really should sell my unused ones to give them homes for people who would use them)

'Tis the season for materialism. And the door is that way.

Somebody should make a Christmas keyboard with Green and Red switches in a checkerboard pattern. I don't think anybody would have a practical use, but I'd do it for the novelty. Okay, maybe if I'm switching all Red to all Green I would stop halfway through and try it out for the lulz, but nobody in their right mind would use one. I do need a good soldering iron and a single MX Green switch for my spacebar though.
