W70
A keyboard with car tail light - designed by WPJ






Hello again everyone, we are WPJ. After a long period of preparation and production, we have finally decided to launch our W70 group buy.

As enthusiasts of both anime and cars, we aimed to incorporate these cultures into our keyboard. Thus, we designed this unique keyboard kit, featuring a beautiful tail light. We are grateful to the many friends who participated in our IC and provided us with valuable suggestions for our design.


For more info please check our IC post
