Introducing our second keyboard collaboration project with another Chinese design studio - Pixelspace. Out of fascination with science fiction, Pixelspace incorporated lots of the related symbols into their designs. Endless, a sci-fi themed 80%/TKL keyboard, is their first project and has been loved and well-supported by enthusiasts.
On behalf of founder of Pixelspace, young777, please allow us to introduce Pixelspace's new sci-fi themed project, Capsule. (Kudos to York for support with renders here.)
Capsule has been designed in the popular 65% layout, which is both compact and practical, and the overall style continues the sci-fi theme from Endless.
Two Options for Case Foam
1. 2.5mm high density Poron® foam, for a crisp and bright tone.
2. 1.5mm high density Poron® foam + a special paper, which together provides a more muted sound.
Both options guarantee a soft and bouncy feel as well as making each keypress feel effortlessly powerful. In addition, to ensure the whole kit is beautiful and comfortable to use, we set the typing angle to 5°, to accommodate most enthusiasts' typing preferences.
Due to the constraints of the internal structure, the kit cannot be screw-free on the base. Thus, the kit uses stickers to conceal the screws on the bottom, which will be cleaner in terms of visual experience.
However, the disassembly of the base still requires removing the foot stickers first (extra foot stickers will be provided). That being said, the kit will provide a hot swappable PCB with per-key RGB to reduce the chances of having to take apart the kit.
Considering this advantage of hot swappable PCBs, as well as the convenience for enthusiasts to assemble it, we decided to sacrifice soldered PCBs and the greater range of layouts. The PCB will be 1.2mm thick; the thinner design will give the PCB more of a poppy feel to the overall kit. Stabilizer shims will be provided to compensate for the thinner PCB.
