M60-A SEQ 2 Production

L1000552.JPG

The Aluminium enclosures for the M60-A SEQ2 have all finished machining and are onto polishing and surface treatment now. The Brass & Aluminium backweights are still in machining and we expect them to be completed soon. We anticipate that the M60-A SEQ2 units will be completed by August.

Did you know each M60-A takes 10 hours to machine? This is just the top and bottom enclosure, not including the back piece. It’s then further polished, cleaned and anodised (or PVD coated)!

U80-A Buying Guide

Confused about what to order or what you will need to build a complete RW U80-A keyboard? We’ve created a guide to try and help out and show where you can purchase some of the components to make the keyboard your own! We also have a few other guides on how to adjust and make the typing experience for your keyboard unique.

Lumen (Utility) Light Prototype

A few weeks ago, we teased a concept image of a product we are working on without revealing what it is. The Lumen is an RGBW utility light controllable via HSV (Hue, Saturation, Value/Brightness), the interface consists of two dials which can be clicked in to control different parameters, Hue / Saturation, Hue / Brightness, Pulse Rate / Speed etc.

Today Wilba (our Hardware Engineer) brought over the prototype test-board to play with and we are now confident we can miniaturize it and create a neat product from it.

A lot of people have noticed the deskmat we have in the background of a lot of these images, we have stock arriving at our warehouses in the following weeks, expect something soon!

It's named the Canvas and it's perfectly ratio'd to compliment 60% sized keyboards.
