Vector

Designed by ai03, Vector is a retro modern PCB gasket 60% keyboard.

Drawing inspiration from distinctly vintage elements from keyboards past, Vector renews these details with modern functions and fresh stylings.

A Leap Across Time

Large seams. Tapered front ledges. Rounded edges. Large bezels. Built in pen rail. 

Vector revives these elements of early keyboards and reshapes them to fit the modern. 

Use the default pen rail matched to the case for an undeniably retro feel or swap it for an accent color to create an entirely new impression that pairs well with vibrant keysets.

Bold Brushstrokes

A deep uniform seam traversing all sides of the case, cohesively highlights the individual case parts, and draws attention to the substantial polished weight. The stainless steel weight is laser engraved with a design that further expresses the retro modern design language of Vector.

With large, blocky faces that wrap around the keyboard’s form create a sense of roundness and overall sharpness, Vector blurs the lines between retro and current.

Timeless Internals
