This morning the folks at Razer have revealed their first big play for the iPad Pro in an keyboard case. This keyboard case works with Razer’s own Ultra-Low-Profile Mechanical Switches, the first of their kind. Every one of these Razer Ultra-Low-Profile Mechanical switches works with “a true actuation and reset point.” In short – they’re radical. The case will be shipping immediately straight through Razer’s official store online at Razerzone dot com.
Each of these Razer Ultra-Low-Profile Mechanical switches works with registration of 70 grams of force. This is as close as you’re going to get to a full-size mechanical keyboard, made small enough to work with a mobile tablet. This technology wont just stick to Apple – but with the iPad Pro being such a central platform for mobile gaming, it’s a perfect place to start.
“We’re commonly thought of as a company that makes phenomenal products for gamers, but to design the very best products, we’ve had to innovate from the ground up — even from each individual component such as mechanical switches,” said Razer CEO and founder Min-Liang Tan.
“We’re excited about the potential of our ultra-low-profile mechanical switch and look forward to exploring other applications in addition to the mechanical keyboard we’ve designed for the iPad Pro.”
