Hey there! I'm so excited to share the design of the AM RGB 65 with you all. This is a 65% layout keyboard that was inspired by the classic Game Boy, and we first unveiled it back in 2021.

Over the past three years, I have to admit that there were times when I almost gave up on this project. But your encouragement and support kept me going. I ended up modifying the design numerous times, and there were even points where I redid the entire thing from scratch. But you know what they say - sometimes you have to keep tweaking and refining, but in the end, you just can't beat the original concept.

After all the long hours spent developing the structure, making demo boards, adjusting the colors, debugging the hardware, and working through all the other nitty-gritty details, the AM RGB 65 is finally ready! This has been a real labor of love, and I'm so proud to be able to share it with the community. I hope you all love it as much as I do!

Inspiration


The AM RGB 80 takes its inspiration from Nintendo's Game Boy from the 1980s. We extracted its classic elements, such as its asymmetrical rounded corner design, integrated screen, and speaker grille. By using a large LED panel and applying CNC machining, we integrated these classic elements into a piece of modern technology. I'm incredibly proud of how we were able to pay homage to that beloved handheld while pushing the boundaries of what's possible.
