New Keycap “PBTfans X-Ray” at Yousha Kobo|Sales Scheduled for July-September 2024


On March 23, 2024, Yusha Kobo, a keyboard specialty store, released a sales page for the new “X-Ray” keycap from PBTfans, a keycap brand made by KBDfans.


X-Ray is a “translucent” keycap that has recently become fashionable.

It has a double-shot structure, in which a transparent layer seems to be overlaid on a white base, and the main feature is that the letters appear to float on top of the transparent layer when viewed from different angles.
