The Creation of Freya - From Wuque, Freya Designer

Wuque Studio has not released new products for an extended period. On one hand, we aspire to present perfection to everyone; on the other hand, that comes at the cost of refusing to compromise in craftsmanship, design, and functionality.Learn more


Review Videos and Streaming Plan Updates

The prototypes have been sent to reviewers and streamers. Stay tuned!


Introducing Freya

* Touch Screen Knob with upgraded features
* New Non-Load-Bearing Gasket Structure design
* NEW Spliced Plate
* Left Slider
* Howswap Badges
* Wings Side Profile
* Two Editions: Freya Ultra & Freya

Touch Screen Knob with Upgraded Features

This time, we created a bold design by combining the knob and touch screen. The knob module, surrounded by four raised metal pieces, now looks like an altar, giving it a powerful appearance. Initially, we designed the entire knob in gold to match Freya’s image. After getting feedback, we changed the color of the metal pieces around the knob to match the keyboard case, while keeping the knob itself in gold. The knob is modular, it can also be changed to become the 4 keys cluster.

Touch Screen LCD Functions

1.  5s boot animation, image/GIF upload
2. Rotate the knob to adjust the volume, press to enter the function page
3. Support date, clock, power, information push
4. Alarm Clock
5. Notes
6. Message notification
7. Countdown
8. Other functions are in development

Knob Function - Volume Control

Note: some functions are under development, if you have any ideas please share with us in comment or IC form. We will keep updating.


Connect Pocket Wuque APP

The Wuque self-developed app now also supports connecting to the Freya LCD. You can customize most settings on your phone, and we'll continue to update the app to enhance its functions in the future.

New Non-Load-Bearing Gasket Structure design

Springs play a crucial role in supporting the interior, ensuring uniform settling, and providing consistent localized tactile feedback. Silicon rubbers are strategically placed around the plate to prevent impacts on both the top and bottom case. The limited spring structure achieves a balance between stability and freedom within the interior, offering a newfound level of comfort beyond your expectations.




New Non-Load-Bearing Gasket Structure design

Freya features an inventive detachable structure plate, allowing for personalized combinations in mods and alpha key areas. The inner and outer frames of the plate come in various materials and are entirely customizable to suit your preferences.







Left Slider

Left Slider supports volume control, and it is modular. It can also be 5 keys.




Hotswap Badges(Compatible with Ikki68 Aurora badges)

We are very glad to make it with a magnetic base, and let the badges “hotswap” easily. And Aurora users can use your Aurora badges here too :)
If you are not familiar with Aurora badges, please refer to our badge pagesor our badge discord discussion channel for the photos. We will also release more badge design next time!

We've conducted a poll for Freya badges and chosen the top 5 designs!

Wings Side Profile

Beautiful Wings with Double Anodizing Chamfer

Freya's Feathered Cloak, legendary for being woven from the feathers of various birds, is a powerful artifact that, when worn, provides the wearer with the ability to resist physical and magical attacks. But this isn't just a tale of folklore – it's a reality we've brought to your keyboard. We've meticulously sculpted the shape of wings into the sides of the keyboard, evoking a sense of connection to the mythical power.

Through the application of a secondary anodization process, we've beautifully carved the sides of the keyboard, offering you both aesthetics and texture. This isn't just a keyboard; it's a work of art that infuses your work and play with an atmosphere of mystery and magic. Unleash the power of Freya and experience an unparalleled keyboard journey.

Two Editions: Freya Ultra & Freya

FreyaUltra - including the interchangeable module on the left

Freya - without the interchangeable module on the left

Bottom Case Design

Continuing the design concept from before, we've incorporated a PVD mirror backplate for the bottom of the board. Centered on the backplate is a portrait of the goddess Freya, enhancing the overall refinement and collectibility of the keyboard. Additionally, we've embraced a screwless design, utilizing 4 screws instead of lengthy footpads for a cleaner bottom appearance.

Case colors

10 colorways - Black, Burgundy, E-white, Lavender, Navy, Pine, Pink, Silver, Violet, Ice blue

Please let us know what case colors you would love to see too.

Seems like there is cool things into the board, even if I don't like the design (purely preference, I don't like 65% boards)

Also what is the typing angle and the weight of the board?

Well that's very disappointing. Any reason why the board doesn't support ISO, when the IKKI68 did and the plate looks like it's compatible with ISO enter?
