        Yes, no matter where you put it in your house it will begin to sun yellow within one year of purchase.

      Pretty cool. I kinda want this.

      Problem is, this $3 logitech keyboard from Goodwill is working fine.

      It looks less like a snes than I expected. Just doing the colors isn't enough I guess, or maybe you need to keep the proportion of colors the same too.
      Like you need more grey, less light purple and way less black.

        I guess you could order custom key caps

          Interestingly their keycaps are a different shape than you usually see. They've got angular sides you can see in a couple of the closeups.

          Though they're still cherry MX style switches, so you could of course replace them with whatever you wanted. Hyperkin has posted about the board in /r/mechanicalkeyboards.
