Mechanical keyboard kits offer loads of customizability and make for fun side projects. This one is a standout in more ways than one. To start, the case is crafted from stainless steel with a thick acrylic layer that rests on the bottom. The keyboard’s built-in feet raise it off the desk, which allows the RGB underglow to really shine. It’s also done in a 15x5 full grid Ortholinear layout, a nice compromise between a full-size and something more compact. This DIY kit includes a case, plate, PCB, screws, and a USB cable, but you can customize it even further along the way. Choose from a wide range of switches at checkout so you can get just the feel you like. You’ll also have a wide selection of keycaps if you like.
Note: This drop does not include keycaps. The pictures on this page reflect from two different keycap sets; see below for layout ideas/details. At checkout, you’ll have the option to add a set of 80 Cherry MX (+ $30) or Gateron switches (+ $15). This drop is set to launch on Monday, 8/14 @ 6:00 am PST.
All orders will be shipped by Massdrop.
Estimated ship date is Mar 5, 2018 PT.
