Whether individually or in a set, CHERRY is offering customers a choice between MX Red, Black, Blue, Brown, Green, Clear, Silent Black, Silent Red, and Speed switches. The developer kits contain a full set of 110 switches, which will let users create their own keyboards in the extended layout. For Cherry's developer kits, you'll have to exclusively go through Reichelt Elektronik, whereas switch kits can also be purchased from Arrow Electronics and Greendich Enterprise. The developer kits will be available for €40.
