Most mechanical keyboards are quite large in size and include plenty of function buttons for macros and the like. However if you are looking for something a little smaller than the market is a little more sparse.
One new addition to the mini mechanical keyboard market is the new WhiteFox which has been created by Input Club in San Joe California. Once the video below to learn more about its design and functionality.
Features in the WhiteFox (Vera) include:
• Fully Programmable Keys
• Durable PBT Keycaps
• Aluminum Body
• Perfect Compact Layout
• Open Source Hardware
• Our new Halo Mechanical Switches
WhiteFox is a fully programmable, compact keyboard with an aluminum frame and custom keyswitches.A new class of mechanical keyboard, a higher quality and more adaptable device than what you are used to. Every key is fully programmable, our software is open source, and the aesthetic is light and elegant. The keycaps are crafted from highly durable PBT engineering plastics, and the legends are dye-sublimated so they will never wear or fade. The body is solid aluminum, very compact, and can fit on any desk. The rationale behind this keyboard is to provide you with a beautiful piece of functional art that you can customize and fully control.
We also invented two new types of mechanical keyswitches that are available as options for the WhiteFox. Our goal when inventing these switches was to significantly reduce “pre-load” or the initial effort required when you first touch a switch. With this new capability, we were able to recreate the feeling of the most desirable keyboards in the world in a simple mechanical switch.
– Halo True – A smooth, tactile switch that is effortless to push, and becomes firmer the harder you press it.
– Halo Clear – Based on the Halo True architecture, but with a spring weight closer to the very popular Cherry MX Clear.
– Kaihua Blue – We didn’t invent this switch, but it is a wonderful clicky switch so we included it as an option. It is much louder to type on than the Halo switches, with a short, crisp tactile bump.
