May I suggest a wise old owl for F1?

You know, I tried, but for the life of me, I can't make birds lol

How about a crab for Esc? When crabs are stuck in a bucket they pull any climbers back in.

HIGH_PRESSURE_TOILET t1_jcdhe16 wrote

Did you know that when you put a lot of crabs in a bucket, they actually don’t try to pull each other down to stop any single one from escaping? That was something we projected onto them based on our own cynical and selfish attitudes. Just another example of anti-crab propaganda that your humble author hopes to challenge.

There's a great instructional out on the internet on how to draw an owl. Good place to start.

Probably because they don't even actually exist so that makes sense.

You should work on your birds because a vulture for F4 would be badass.

Why F1?

Lee1138 t1_jcl8ec0 wrote

What is the universal function of the F1 button in applications?

1

nanoH2O t1_jcldtmw wrote

No clue that's why I'm asking. I'm pretty computer knowledgeable so if I don't know a lot of people won't. I would guess it's help but what normal person uses that over google?

Friend: Hey man can you tell how to do this thing?

Me: Yeah man it's alt + frog.

Friend: ...

Me: you could also try ctrl + fox

Friend: yeah... That raccoon suggest of yours got me a bunch of rabies shots and the computer problem's still there.

Very cute and well done! You may want to check out r/mechanicalKeyboards! I’m sure people over there would love these

Hell, plenty of us would want this.

I do have an Etsy, robotkeys.etsy.com, but they aren't up for sale quite yet. Probably by the end of the month I'll have made enough to list!

Edit: I post shop announcements/more pictures on my instagram

I would LOVE to get this set for my fiancé, he loves stuff like this. Luckily, his bday is in July, so you have time. But I favorites your shop and will be checking regularly!

Oh God you are going to get slammed for these!

They are amazing.

I'm so afraid to ask... but what do you think you'll list them for? And will you do sets?

robotmon OP t1_jcg2r5l wrote

Honestly, I have no idea as of now. But I do know they will be the most expensive item in my shop, based off of the time/effort/materials required.

You use it to close programas, instead of alt+F4 you press Alt+F.Fox /S

mechmind t1_jcc1wsc wrote

Aside from how cute this is, which everyone has mentioned profusely, I got to say this is a brilliant fresh new take on artisan keycaps.

You have upped the interactivity to new heights

Fanfics t1_jcbtjro wrote

*goes to press f3*

*ow*

seriously though, usability aside it's stellar work.

and hey as long as f2 is usable for the rename file shortcut it's probably fine

27

Tast3sLikePanda t1_jcbz2uj wrote

Yeah, this is cool looking and all but absolutely not practical

OP will find themselves flicking the animals off keycaps by accident in no time just by reaching for the keys

SirVanyel t1_jcd9oxb wrote

Only if they plan to use those buttons

My only relevant keybinds at my home computer are F6 and F7 unless I'm playing sc2, so for the most part this would be fine

My daughter would love these. Unfortunately, our cats would love them more.

It's a squirrel! It didn't show up too well from this angle, but here are some better pictures!

My addled brain read that as "kneecaps." I had a brief WTF moment as I had to remind myself that I've been reading for over 55 years, and need to just slow down a little, especially when I'm sleepy.

llDurbinll t1_jce3n9r wrote

This reminds me of the Budweiser frog magnet my dad had on his fridge when I was a kid. There were 3 frogs and if you pressed the button they'd say "Bud-Weis-Er" as each frog raised up saying their line. I think you could take the frogs off their mount too.

What did you use? An epoxy putty that air dries?

robotmon OP t1_jcg1dwo wrote

I originally sculpted them with sculpey, then made a silicone mold, then poured in UV resin to make copies. Then a hole is drilled to fit a magnet in, covered with more resin, then painted!
