The mechanical keyboard market is huge, with numerous companies offering a variety of designs, switches and keycaps but perhaps you just can't yet find the perfect model. One answer to that dilemma would be to build your own keyboard from scratch and TechSpot just published a guide to help you do just that. In part one they provide a bill of materials you can build a shopping list out of, with an impressive amount of choices for each component. In part two they cover the build process as well as a large gallery of designs which just might inspire you to take this project on.
"In the world of mechanical keyboards, big brand names like Corsair, Razer, HyperX, etc., take the bulk of the limelight. But what if I told you that every part of a keyboard can be customized? This goes far beyond the aesthetics, so if you're not one for making compromises, it may be time to build your own."
