Vendor Description:

<p><strong>The Gemini Dusk mechanical keyboard pairs warp speed input with super-bright RGB LEDs and advanced programming features — it's the ultimate gaming peripheral.</strong> A machined all-metal case, custom PBT doubleshot keycaps, and hot-swappable switch sockets set the Gemini Dusk light years ahead of lesser offerings.</p> <h3><strong>twin styles</strong></h3> <p>Match your desk, rig, and peripherals with a Gemini Dusk. <strong>You can also investigate the <a href="" target="_blank">Gemini Dawn</a>, its quicksilver twin.</strong> Both have keys that shine like suns in more than 16 million colors.</p> <h3><strong>durable pbt keycaps</strong></h3> <p><strong>The Gemini Dusk's doubleshot PBT-plastic keycaps are massively better than the cheap ABS-plastic caps used in big-name keyboards.</strong> ABS keycaps get shiny, discolor, and often have painted legends (letters) that wear off quickly. Our PBT keycaps resist shine, shrug off discoloration, and maintain a comfortable texture. Their two-part manufacturing method means that letters are virtually impossible to wear off — each one goes all the way through its keycap.</p> <p><strong>A never-before-seen Cherry profile PBT doubleshot keycap set, with shine-through legends and 1.5mm thick walls, has been sourced for the Gemini Dusk.</strong><span> </span>This provides a substantial upgrade over the keycaps originally advertised with the keyboard. The set will likely appear on future projects as well.</p> <h3><strong>premium features</strong></h3> <p><strong>Comfort and style complement Gemini Dusk's performance.</strong><span> </span>Dual USB-C ports provide future-proofing and effective cable management options. Flip out feet (an irritating relic from the 80s) are nixed in favor of a magnetic angle adjustment bar. Custom-made LEDs pump out extra light. All of those features, and more, are amplified by unmatched control over your gaming experience.</p> <h3><strong>open source advantage</strong></h3> <p>Hexgears partnered with Input Club, a group of keyboard enthusiasts, to make their vision of keyboard precision widely accessible.<span> </span><strong>Optimized Open Source firmware and a powerful microcontroller translate your finger movements into onscreen action.</strong></p> <h3><strong>hot-swap sockets</strong></h3> <p><strong>Customization doesn't stop at the firmware level — you can change switches at will with the Gemini Dusk's hot-swap sockets.</strong><span> Try different mechanical switches easily and quickly; create the perfect switch layout based on your preferences</span>.<span> </span><strong>No soldering necessary.</strong><span> </span>That means you can have linear switches, tactile switches, and clicky switches in the same keyboard (if that's your thing).</p> <h3><strong></strong></h3> <h3><strong>updated gaming / media layout</strong></h3> <p>Hexgears and Input Club are changing a few keys on the default TKL layout to increase functionality without losing features. We will have more to announce in the future.</p> <h3><strong>measurements</strong></h3> <ul> <li>Weight: 1.1 kg / 38.8 oz (keyboard + magnetic angle adjustment bar)</li> <li>Dimensions: 36.8 x 14 x 3.6 cm (14.5 x 5.5 x 1.4 in)</li> </ul> <h3><strong>feature list</strong></h3> <ul> <li>Per-key programmable RGB lighting + animations, super bright LEDs</li> <li>Machined all-metal case and top plate</li> <li>Available with Kailh Box Brown (Tactile), Red (Linear), or White (Clicky) Mechanical Switches</li> <li>Custom doubleshot PBT shine-through keycaps in Cherry profile</li> <li>Mechanical switch hot-swap sockets, right to repair friendly</li> <li>Fully programmable layout via Open Source firmware (Input Club KLL)</li> <li>Dual USB-C ports for optimal cable management (no hub capabilities)</li> <li>Magnetic angle adjustment bar / foot, removable</li> <li>SAM4S ARM Cortex-M4 microcontroller</li> <li>Updated game and media focused ANSI tenkeyless layout</li> <li>Supports plate mounted switches</li> <li>Fulfilled by Kono Store in the US</li> </ul> <ul></ul> <h3><strong>warranty</strong></h3> <ul> <li>1 Year Limited — parts and workmanship</li> </ul> <h3>quickstart</h3> <p>Download the <strong><a href="" title="Configurator Drivers">Windows drivers</a> </strong>(if necessary) and the <strong><a href="" title="Hexgears Configurator Download" target="_blank">Hexgears Configurator</a></strong>, then follow Input Club's <strong><a href="" title="Kiibohd Quickstart Guide">quickstart guide</a></strong> (using the files linked above) to modify your keyboard layout / commands.</p>
