GLOVE:
Hello everyone! This is Glove Studio,A design team from China.

Open GH and DISCORD accounts starting today.

This is a previous keycap design work:Domikey X GLOVE Studio AvoStar SA  Keycap

We are happy to introduce you to our brand-new design – Apes, inspired by the Planet of the Apes movie series.
The main character Caesar is an evolved chimpanzee who is the leader of the Ape Army and the adoptive son of human.
Caesar leads his fellow apes in a rebellion against abusive handlers and the police by unleashing the deadly ALZ-113 virus.
 Caesar tries to seize dominance over the destiny of his own as well as the entire species.
The iconic scene where Caesar shoutout “NO!” in the first movie series was quite an impression for us!!


Getting back to the design, the beige color in the set is a representation of the bones and the sand coating of guns.
while the black and dark grey not only captures the biggest distinction between human and apes – the fur.
 also matches the dark tone of the entire story.

2.Apes75 Keyboard Kit (collab with Colossus75)
Long before I started to design this keycap set, I had been looking for a keyboard kit which can utilize the sand color gunmetal coating.
One day I was just chatting with Zhou (the designer of Zhou65/Korno65) and he told me Colossus75 will be using coatings that can make this idea come true. So here comes our collab!!



[IC] Colossus75 Custom Keyboard by DiMi Studio

Seamless design

Priced at $2xx (APES-75 will be a little bit higher than Colossus 75 due to the addition of the counterweight nameplate)

Apes75  Introduction
1.See the post for Colossus75 here. One major change compared to the original Colossus75 is that we carved out a small window on the weight to allow for a 7cmX2.6cm customized plate.
2.The bottom case will be engraved with “APES”




We are considering two different manufacturing techniques for the customized plate:
1.UV printing on the anodized coating to preserve the sandy feeling (similar to the small plates from MatrixLab).
2.Laser Engraving on Stainless Steel








Bullet Clip



The idea is to use a dozen imitation bullets to make a resin wrist rest.
In my opinion, we custom keeb enthusiasts installing keycaps is very much alike soldiers loading their bullet clips. Now it’s time to properly load our mech weapon on the desk with this rest.
(Might be cancelled if bounded by some laws)

3.Apes Resin Artisan Keycap




The design is based on the facial express when Caesar shoutout “NO!”, with an emphasis on the fangs to make him even angrier.



Now we are still prototyping the resin keycap and the release will be later than the SA Apes keycap set.


4.Chimp Switches & Bullet Swithes
We would also like to introduce two switches come along with our theme.



both of which will be designed by Glove Studio, supervised by Domikey, and manufactured by Kailh.



The first one is Chimp Silent Linear Switch.
Just like the army of Champs sneaking into the base of enemies, silent, but powerful, waiting for the right moment to charge,
the Chimp switch uses Kailh linear silent V2 mold, and the Chimp Switch is the first one to utilized this mold in the market.



The second one is Bullet Clicky Switch.
 Battle is on!! Machine guns crossing fire!!
Exactly what clicky switches sound like.
The Bullet switch uses Kailh Box Master mold, and the Chi Bullet Switch will be the first one to utilized this mold in the market.

5.Apes Puzzle


For us custom keeb fans, the keyboard is both a tool and artwork, some enthusiasts would even prefer to display the fully built keyboard than to actually use it.
Buy and sell in the mech market is very common but sometimes we would start to miss the keycaps/keyboards we sold.
What if there is an option for us to preserve the memory with a small, inexpensive art piece?
This is where the idea of Keycap Puzzle comes from.



I am a huge fan of art frame, and I would always frame some the small gadgets I love and hang them on the wall,



which inspired me to recreate my keycap design onto a thick paper board and make it detachable like stamps.




[Size of the puzzle] The final size of the puzzle is 1/2 of the size of the real keyboard keycap, which is A4 size cardboard

puzzle sample picture





Note:1.The puzzle may be sent as a gift for the keycap set and the keycap at the same time.
2.The frame is the picture is for illustration purpose and will not be included in the package.

Don’t really understand the puzzle, but everything else looks pretty good. Forced accents on the base kit is something I would like to see changed. Good luck!
