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.

【APES THEME PRODUCTS】


1.SA Apes Keycap Set
2.Apes75 Keyboard Kit (collab with Colossus75)
3.Apes Resin Artisan Keycap
4.Chimp Switches and Bullet Swithes
5.Apes Puzzle



1.SA Apes Keycap Set



The beige color in the set is a representation of the bones and the 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.









The effect of keycaps under different keyboards








[GB Period] TBD
[GB Vendors] DROP Elboard
[Stock Sale] Kprepublic
[Lead Time] The production is scheduled to be finished in Oct. 2021.
[Pricing] TBD
[Specs] Produced by Domikey, SA profile, ABS double shot

Note: This keycap part of the keys will use a new mold, repair the previous similar ">." key character displacement problem.



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

Colossus 75 Summary of Specs

75% layout
Top mount or an unconventional gasket mount, your choice!
7-degree typing angle
Seamless design
VIA/QMK compatible PCB with RGB lighting
Priced at $2xx (APES-75 will be a little bit higher than Colossus 75 due to the addition of the counterweight nameplate)
[GB Vendors]  Elboard




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.





[GB Vendors] DROP Elboard
[Stock Sale] Kprepublic
[GB Period] 2 months later than the SA Apes GB closes
[Pack] Will be sold in 70/90/100/110 packs

[Chimp Silent Linear Switch]
Kailh’s brand-new linear silent V2 mold
All POM
Prolonged 45g spring
More specs on the weights will be updated soon after the tests
Price: TBD


[Bullet Clicky Switch]
Kailh’s brand-new Box Master mold, similar to Jade switch, comes with light diffusion
POM stem, POM bottom, PC top-housing.
Prolonged 45g spring
More specs on the weights will be updated soon after the tests
Price: TBD

Switches are being prototyped and we will release more info later.
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.

Marketing campaign in an IC - Did I just get marketed to? Welp - theme and style are fun. SA caps are not for me the colorway is solid. Great effort on the IC / enjoy the humor of the switch choice. Cool to see a variant of the Colossus - wish it was rebranded to The Great Ape or something stupid. GLWIC - I will certainly keep any eye on this for fun.

Because this isn't an IC. The GB already started in China. Doubt they will adjust to any feedback from GH. This is literally an advertisement.

Wow even.  A good idea, you can stick it on the refrigerator or on the iron plate.  But apea's puzzle is already in production.  I will consider using magnetic puzzles in the next keycap design.  These are your ideas.

WOW. Just WOW dude. The effort of this, and quality of effort is outstanding. One of, if not the best IC i have seen.
The colors and theme don't really do it for me, but i almost want to buy one just to support more work like this..

yes sir. for basic iso support there needs to be a 1.25u shift, which is only available in the mod plus kit. you are forcing iso people to buy a full kit for about 25-30$ for one single keycap.
domikey doesn't seem to care, so no money from me, sorry.

not a big fan of 75% and clickys or silent switches but holy moly are those nice renders and the colours are nice!!! Definetly can see that the people behind it put in a lot of effort.
I wouldn't complain if this IC would become the norm and depending on the soundtest of the switches I would consider buying some
other than that GLWIC

Is < and > keys misalignment issue fixed in this new Domikey set or not?  since this issue was commonly in all Domikey SA sets.  I will be in if the issue is fixed.

Is there a better channel for me to keep an eye on updates regarding the Colossus 75 collab? I'd give my left nut to get a keeb that matched this keyset
