After I heard that a friend of mine is designing a new board for his old Cherry G80-1800 keyboard and that it works quite well so far, I offered to render him a small teaser as well as some product images.
He provided me with the model of the board, I just tried to create a little more realism by adding some “impurities” in the form of normal maps and textures.
With the new board, the 20 year old Cherry keyboard now also offers a USB C port, Bluetooth as well as support for an OLED display.
In the meantime, Cherry shared the project on their social media channels and PC Games Hardware also wrote an article about the project.
More details about the project can be found on Moritz’s page.
