Tired of modern keyboards promoting more flash and bang than actual performance, Weyman Kwong (from WASD Keyboards) and Jeff Atwood came together to design the Code Keyboard. A no nonsense mechanical keyboard with utility oozing out the sides, it earns a space at your computing station through simple style and unmatched function. We are pleased to announce a group buy for the highly sought Code Keyboard with Cherry MX Clear Switches.
Note: This drop is for the full size and the tenkeyless (-$5) Code Keyboard in Cherry MX Clear switches. The two options are limited to 110 units in total.
The base of any proper board is the key switches, and this version of the Code comes loaded with Cherry MX Clear switches. Clear switches are one of the rarest varieties of switches, and are often described as "stiffer Cherry MX Browns". They are the favored switch of programmers and office workers, since they provide an incredible typing experience, aren't incredibly loud and have increased resistance after their actuation point to prevent bottoming out. The next layer features white LED backlighting- available in seven brightness levels- to illuminate your ABS plastic keys. As for the legends themselves, they were printed in classic Helvetica, because they’re classy guys. If you’re key mashing, you’re good for 6-key rollover using USB interface, or N-key rollover with PS/2.
Underneath all that function, the board is supported by a steel backplate, dual layer PCB joints, and larger rubber pads to keep your keyboard intact and in place. The minimalist case itself has a textured surface, keeping away fingerprints, scratches, and other dirt. Finally, if all that wasn’t enough for you, a row of DIP switches on the bottom allows you customize the keyboard setup to exactly your preferences. Even better, onboard memory will remember your preferences for the next time you plug in.
All orders will be shipped by Massdrop.
Estimated ship date is Sep 25, 2015 PT.
After the drop ends, payment will be collected and the group’s order will be submitted to the vendor up front, making all sales final. Check the discussion page for updates on your order.
