Flex Group, an Australian startup has announced the Flux keyboard, an insanely clever idea that combines the speed and precision of a mechanic keyboard frame with an embedded display, that allows for a keyboard that is hugely customisable, but functionality isn’t compromised.
Launched on Kickstarter, the keyboard has already reached its goal of $134,000 within minutes, currently sitting at just over $1 million dollars pledged with 28 days still to go, so it’ll smash way beyond that.
Basically, the keyboard uses a magnetic keyboard frame that sits on top of a full high-definition IPS display so that you can not only set cool backgrounds and such, but also have a completely different keyboard display when you shift between applications such as Photoshop and Premiere Pro, or maybe even between games.
The beauty between the frame also being magnetic, is that it’s super interchangeable os that you can swap between tactile keys and linear keys in just a few seconds.
The keyboard also has interchangeable modules which you can find below:
• Triple Key Module, which features 3 extra customizable keys
• Side Dial Module, which features one large dial and a rocker switch
• Triple Dial Module, which features 3 Dials surrounded by a display
• Passive Module, which features a window to view information on the display
• 75% keyboard layout in ANSI or ISO format
• 1920 x 1080 IPS display
• 1,000hz polling rate
• 1-2ms response time
• USB C or USB A connection
• Windows 10/11 and macOS 11+ compatibility, limited Linux compatibility
