Inspiration

From the Designer, Upas

"I actually found the concept of “Ripple” for this keyboard while in the design process. For some boards, I start with a concept and design from there. For others - like this one - I played around a bit with drawings and design elements I could use before settling on the concept of a Ripple - the movement water makes when something is dropped in it. From there, designing the rest of the keyboard fell into place.

The contours of the top case and weight are meant to mimic water flowing, a very wavy look. The stepped corner cuts are meant to resemble expanding concentric circles like those found in a ripple, and the side cuts match the wavy-ness of the rest of the top case."

Design Language

The goal for this keyboard was to have thin top bezel, with a low front height and moderate typing angle. This, in addition to horizontal side cuts to achieve a stunning side and back profile were achieved through several rounds of prototypes to make sure everything was just right.

Mounting System

The mount is a O-ring gasket hybrid mount, with a ton of customizability. Different combinations of top foam gaskets and O-rings can be used to accomplish several different typing feels and sounds.
