The chassis of the Machenike KT68 reminds me of the transparent electronics popular in the 90s-2000s. I also really like the cyberpunk style key inscriptions on the keys. I also noticed that there are versions with a configurable display. Nice. Though the input latency does probably make it unsuitable for gaming and the only keyboard they sell with a numpad doesn't have any of the style the KT68 has.

I had a roommate back in the day that got one of those all-membrane rollable waterproof keyboards, and when I tried it I had the same reaction as Linus. It technically functions as a keyboard, but it's so bad. Like, you know when you find the exact right keyboard, everything works the way you want, and pressing the keys just feels right? It's like the opposite of that.

Man, some years ago my work replaced ALL the shop floor computer keyboards (dozens) those those exact rollable rubber membrane key boards. They redefined what a terrible keyboard was to me, and I got my start on those wierd chiclet keyboards on the computers in the early 80's. The spa e bar is a bar shape but only in rubber, there's two single buttons inside that bar, and you have to hit one exactly to have it register a space. Same with return and backspace and the other big buttons - there's no brace or anything, just a gummy membrane switch somewhere in the overall "key".

Back around 2014, our school had the "genius" idea to replace all keyboards with those rubber keyboards cause kids would take out the keys and swap them or they'd get lost entirely. Not only that, they were also glued onto the desks. I was one of the people who deployed them (I was paid for it). Could immediately tell that was an awful idea. Programming on those was utterly impossible. They were vandalized even more because of how absolutely dogshit they were, and this time they couldn't easily be replaced. They lasted maybe two weeks until we un-glued them and went back to regular keyboards.

I had one of those rubber roll up keyboards once since it seemed like a good idea at the time.. The trouble with them is that they ship rolled up or folded so they are never quite flat, but quite aside from that, once you get them properly flattened, they are still very spongy to type on and the key lettering for the most common keys wears off in almost no time.

The Canadian Museum of Science and Technology had lazer keyboards for their guest interactive computers as far back as I can remember. It's super cool and fits the theme, while also meaning there's just a little ledge to wipe down when a child inevitably spills something on the keyboard. Of course, with recent renovations they just went to touch screen.

The like, "1/3 of a keyboard" is honestly great. I've used a mid quality one for years (not the one reviewed).

I got the H20 variant of the H18, it has the touchpad on one side and a *real* keyboard on the other. You use the gyro to switch between them. It actually functions pretty nice, and is the only wireless keyboard I have which doesn't drop inputs, which isn't exactly a high bar I know but I can appreciate its reliability. Man I would hate having to use a capacitive keyboard.
@eskibars 8 aylar önce
FYI, some of these (like the laser keyboard) *do* have some generally unconventional use cases for them. I worked in an emergency room at a hospital once and there were computers/keyboards. But due to the serious risk of transmitting infection, keyboards were often treated as one-time use and dozens were discarded every day. So to avoid e-waste, washable and laser keyboards were sometimes used. Yeah, they were slow/hard to type on, and there are undoubtedly better solutions for most modern hospitals now, but even then, they were much better than the alternatives (in some ways)
They never had the genius idea of putting a clear plastic bag/sheet over the keyboard?

We use washable keyboards at the hospital I work at specifically because the hospital is as waste conscious as they can be. It was before my time, but it was apparently a big deal when they switched because the hospital was so large and they replaced every single keyboard in the entire facility. Every time someone complains about the keyboard, a nurse who was there during the switch makes sure to remind them that "at least they weren't there during the transition of keyboards" because it was 'that' big of a deal for infection prevention.

I replaced some extremely expensive industrially hardened keyboards with those soft rollable keyboards a few years ago (Not AliExpress ones obviously) and really don't have any complaints. Yeah they suck to type on, but they're in locations where people are typing a quick log entry at most. And so far they've lasted a few years at $30 a pop versus literally a few weeks for a normal desktop keyboard or a similar timeframe for 15-20x the price for a hardened keyboard. Always remember the actual real world use case and the advertised use cases of products don't always align.

The most interesting part of the Machenike keyboard to me is the 2.4 Ghz wireless connectivity. I currently use a Keychron K8 and like that it's wireless and RGB, but the Bluetooth only option sucks. It sometimes doesn't wake my Linux machine up or takes several keypresses to connect. Was that a generic USB 2.4 Ghz (transceiver) extender? Or just a dongle for the PC end with the transmitter inside the keyboard?

The infrared laser KB has been around for 10 years but it used to cost over $150SGD to own one. It totally has NO FEEDBACK, but at least its not terrible feedback like the waterproof keyboard. That 6-key "mechanical keyboard" thingy is an esoteric "game controller", think of it as a sort of streamdeck for games, gotta program the keys yourself. The thing is its a product designed for a problem that doesn't really exist, or does but everyone is already used to a keyboard so this tool is the one that ironically takes learning. ...I'm of the opinion that the current best foldable keyboard is the RK925 from Royal Kludge. The Machineke is actually regarded as an artisan product and has a price point in line with Ducky keyboards of the same size. I haven't had the priviledge of using one tho.

Yeah, you can't type fast on it, but it's obviously not designed for big typing tasks. The touchpad works great and the keyboard is fine for typing simple few word searches or passwords. It's tiny so it doesn't take up any room in the coffee table, and the battery life is surprisingly great since it powers down on its own. Last time I charged it was months ago.

12:33, Also have one of those, by far my biggest complaint is how hard it is to see the keys, the second issue is that using any surface tends to hurt the fingers, though that should be fixable by just carrying around some cloth or something similar to lay out where the keyboard is projected

That last one looks pretty decent, I have considered bringing one of my spare keyboards to work to do a typing test while at work vs at home because there's a theory around the office that I type much faster than on the typing tests when i'm not doing the typing test xD

19:48 on the 45% keyboard, i can also justify the existence. i bought one of those a few years ago, back when my desk space could barely fit in a mouse and keyboard side by side. it was great for mouse+keyboard games. gives you more room like linus said, for mouse movement, or to fit a drink or snack instead on the tiny desk lol. but I specifically bought it to use with my drawing tablet. i got used to keyboard shortcuts on the left hand tablet pen in the right. and the 45% was the only way to fit both on my desk at the time haha
@freemansfreedom8595 8 aylar önce
The first one looks like a perfect fit for a shop keyboard,. No amount of aluminum chips would break or make the keys stuck on that one. 18:15 I'd argue the trackpad is not an issue if you use it for a tablet. Good enough for you to do something without raising your hand to touch a tablet screen.

I work in a factory that use a keyboard kinda like the roll up one, that goes for one of the computers connected to our molding presses (for pressing plastic parts out of a mold). It's pretty much the same as you say, it feels bad to touch, and it doesn't really work. To make it worse, the keyboard has a built in mouse, but it's one of those track ball ones where you spin the ball around to move the mouse and press down for left click (no right click)

I have something similiar to that gaming keyboard... I set it up for F5, Shift-F8, F8, F9... it makes stepping through code super easy. I love it. Software was not quite as sketchy, but the programming is stored in the device so you can set it up on a something you can wipe if you have concerns.

Yea, this, plus the one i had as a kid had a plug around its PCB where you could suck the air out of it, which is what made their keyboard bounce. There was some air between the layer in the keyboard and when he pressed on it the air had to go somewhere and changed the shape of the silicone outer layer.

I was playing around different keyboard/number pad configurations for wooden panel framing software. Most of my input is numberpad related and it's annoying swapping back and forth between a mouse and keyboard with my right hand. So I ended up just getting a seperate mechanical number pad and keyboard so I could have the number pad on the left. If that half keyboard had been a numberpad surrounded by programmable buttons to allow for the huge amount of shortcuts I need to be done left handed, I'd use it instead.

I used to use one of those half keyboards (a better quality one). They’re very useful in certain circumstances. In my case, I wanted to game with friends but only had a laptop and limited desk space at the time. I got a cheap half keyboard off Amazon and it worked perfectly. It’s not an everyday use type of product, but it’s great in specific situations. You just need to avoid the low quality ones.

I agree with you, my setup make me a bit of a "couch" gamer in that my main monitor for my PC is my room TV and I sit in a recliner to use it, I have a trackball mouse on one arm of the chair and a half keyboard or gaming keypad on the other arm. Works amazing for gaming and when I need a full keyboard I just use a full one in my lap.

@@crh18 Oh boy. You know, traditional trackball mice might be technically obsolete and somewhat inferior compared to a good modern mouse when it comes to gaming, but back when there was no alternative, everyone played FPS' (or RTS', or ARPGs... plenty of mouse skill was required back then eh) with them, and they did basically just as well as modern gamers. It's not that much worse at all, and you can even do stuff that modern laser sensors don't allow - like using it on any surface good enough to get the ball rollin' (hehe). Sure, I probably wouldn't go back to shooters using a trackball, but that's what I used for a long time while playing CS, Halo and many others, and I was _pretty fucking good_ at it.

18:44 These half keyboards, (the good ones) are great for laptop gamers. If you ever gamed on a laptop you know how much actual pain they cause when playing demanding games like FPS, MMOs or even MOBAs. (Using ctrl alt or shift combos for example) A normal keyboard needs space in front of you so you have to move the laptop further, a half keybord perfectly fits on the left, symmetrical to your mouse on the right, with your laptops keyboard in the middle so you can still flame your team when they feed.

I'm also a super low sens player playing at 400 DPI and 0.21 on in game sens (aimlabs). I used to angle my keyboard upward just to give space for my mouse. I don't think I'll ever get the logitech one since I don't necesarrily need a thumb stick since the games I play don't require them.

Kept it in my forensic hard drive imaging kit as inputing evidence numbers and custodian information using the absolute horrible built in method provided by Tableau or LogiCube was painful. It wasn't great, but when physical space is a premium something that rolls up that small and is a full 104 key keyboard is a great add.
