If you mean the row of 16, I know what you're saying, I want some too.

The Cirklon uses Cherry keys which seem kind of similar, and they've got the integrated LEDs which look ace... I think you can get the switches from Farnell, but I dunno about the keycaps.

I imagine it's something like these, although I've not tried them:

Strangely they don't seem to stock the keycaps. Haven't found any stockists of blank keycaps in the UK, but I reckon these might fit:

They look like old computer keyboard keys, an electronics shop near me sells them individually.
