Screwless Quick Assembly System & Magnetic Connection Design

Catchball system GIF

The top and bottom cases can be assembled and disasembled with catchball, there are so many catchballs on the market but most of their elastic will decay after some time.
We spent over 2 months on sourcing a professional manufacturers and finally find one from the 8 we tried. They adjusted the elasticity and gap we needed, making a very good balance to fit into our design.


Magnetic connection system

Normal plug connectors are too big, and we must make sure it can fit our keyboard seamless for the perfect typing feel and sound we want. It's very uneasy for us to find existing one, we tried  about 5, but the whole team felt that we should not compromise on this one.  We really don't want to see it imperfect because of this, so we go deep into the rabbit hole (yes, product development is another rabit hole!!!!) and... CUSTOM IT AGAIN! Result was, 3 more weeks spent...



5 New colors this year, added to old Zoom series: Aquamarine, Klein Blue,  Peach Fuzz, Viva Magenta, Cafe Brown 



All 16 colors:  SE Lavender, SE Black, E-White, Black, White, Sky Blue, Aquamarine, Klein Blue, Blush Pink, Milk Tea, Strawberry Ice Cream, Milky Green, Peach Fuzz, Scarlet Red, Viva Magenta, Cafe Brown

Ok, dang, you finally got me. Those backplates are amazing. Feels like there's too many options but that's what the keeb land is. Think I'll have to grab one of these. Two if I have the funds. Bravo.
