One of the best crowd funding campaigns has begun for the C64 and this time it is not a special music album, or a new game but a hardware based improvement that every C64 owner should be looking into. An Indiegogo campaign started by Michael via Austria which features brand new Keycaps from a multiple choice of colours, such as black, white, red or even green!
You may wonder why this is so special for C64 owners, well one major factor is our C64's will not always stay as pristine in colour as they once were. Many of you will or have had at some point a yellowing C64 which needs retrobrighting, as the flame retardant in the plastic reacts to time and direct sunlight. Usually the first to go yellow are the keys and this is where the Keycap campaign comes in.
A unique opportunity to order brand new, 100% factory-made in Austria keycaps for the Commodore C64 in a variety of colours (€19 EUR early bird special). Keycaps fit virtually all C64 versions (except the C64SX), but also most VC20 / C16 and some Commodore CBM!
The campaign of €25,000 EUR has 42 days left and already is over 10% of the funding with 126 people pledging in 4 days. So what the hell are you waiting for C64 owners? Get over there and give your C64 a new keycap overhaul!
