Keytron: World’s first keyboard to feature voice assistant

The keyboard is an essential accessory in computing. A computer keyboard utilizes an arrangement of buttons or keys to act as mechanical levers or electronic switches. In this era of wireless devices this new ‘Keytron’, an Ultra-Slim Wireless Mac Mechanical Keyboard help you to boost your productivity.

This is not surprising the way we are evolving in the field of technology. Likewise, wireless devices are an everyday invention. Contemplating this fact, a group of keyboard enthusiasts who has extensive experience in keyboard manufacturing designed Keytron.

Undoubtedly, ‘the tactile feel’ using the mechanical keyboard will not merely attract gamers but also typists too. “Nearly 95 percent of mechanical keyboards are designed only for gamers.”

But Keytron creators say, “We, at Keytron, have spent more than a year to create self-contained switches for easier typing in that Magic Keyboard style. And we are here to offer you the tactile feel of a mechanical keyboard with a minimalist design.”

It simply means this keyboard is versatile and can appeal to both gamers and typists too.

A team commented, “The Keytron is designed for productivity as a typist’s dream. After testing of more than 25 keyboard models, we are bringing all desirable features to a single keyboard; an ultra-thin body (18mm) and switches for a great tactile feel.”

It requires less force and uses less finger travel which reduces finger fatigue. Eventually, it provides exceptional typing comfortability as compared to other mechanical keyboards on the market.

Keytron is one of the few that features macOS function keys (F1 to F12) in a Mac layout with the same as conventional Mac systems.

As creators have repeatedly mentioned, its comfortability it discovered in keyboard design. Its layout shows how it makes typing easier and better to best meet your needs. Since it is compatible with both iOS/macOS and Windows/Android, you can switch between the operating systems with the toggle on the side.

Keytron is devised with a dedicated key for Siri on the Mac layout, Cortana on Windows, dictation, and even a screenshot button. No more there is a need to twist your fingers having to hold down “cmd + shift + 4” on Macs or “Windows/alt + Print Screen”  to take a screenshot, just press the dedicated screenshot button.

For several features on Keytron keyboard, you are just a key away.

Looking into the future and user convenience, this keyboard is designed to wireless. To connect this to your computer wirelessly via Bluetooth for 8 – 40 hours (RGB version, varies with brightness and use case) and 2 – 4 weeks (lights off). But still, you can connect your computer by wire via USB type-C.

They particularly stated about its slim design, “After more than a year of R&D and testing of over 5 reputable switches, we finally decided upon the ultra-thin low profile Blue mechanical switches for the Keytron keyboard. These low profile switches are 48% slimmer, at 7.6mm than conventional switches while still maintaining the same tactile responses.”

An 18mm ultra-slim body contributes to the sleek design of Keytron, which meets your desktop aesthetics perfectly. Keytron offers you a quick actuation and comfortable typing with a switch height of 6mm, 45g ±15g actuation, and 3mm throw depth.

“The Keytron mechanical keyboard is engineered with N-key rollover (NKRO) to register as many keys as you can press at once without missing a single character, making Keytron immune to both key ghosting and key jamming.”
