The designers and engineers at MIIIW have unveiled and launched a new polyclear keyboard in the form of the BlackIO 83. Launched via Kickstarter this month the keyboard sports a “postmodernism design aesthetic” and features, hot, swappable switches and can be used with both windows and Mac operating systems. The wireless keyboard is equipped with a 4,000 mAh battery but can also be used via its integrated Bluetooth connection or using the supplied cable.
Backer early bird pledges are now available for the cutting-edge project from roughly $139 or £118 (depending on current exchange rates), offering a considerable discount of approximately 29% off the final retail price, while the Kickstarter crowd funding is under way.
“Inspired by a postmodernism design aesthetic, BlackIO 83 has see-through keycaps, is QMK & VIA customizable and features an 83 keys design. It’s a stunning keyboard that works like a dream and cleverly combines function & aesthetics.”
With the assumption that the BlackIO 83 crowd funding campaign successfully raises its required pledge goal and the project progresses smoothly, worldwide shipping is expected to take place sometime around January 2023.
