Portico Keyboard Case and Plate
The Portico case is made out of polycarbonate, and is available in Mint or Purple.
The keyboard plate is what aligns the switches to the PCB and holds them in place.
⚫ Plate Material: FR4
🟣 Plate mounting style: Gasket-mounted. This gives you a luxurious, cushioned typing experience.
⚪️ Silicone Mat: Included to further your typing experience. It dampens the sound.
🌸 Limited Edition Badge: Magic Girl Portico will have a custom back badge designed and signed by Mintlodica.
Coming Soon in 2020: The Portico Keyboard Kit will be available as a standalone case kit in 5 colors, including Mint and Purple. Please note that the standalone cases in these colors will not have the limited edition badge.
The PCB (printed circuit board) is what powers your mechanical keyboard.
⚡ Hotswap – no soldering required. To install switches, you simply pop them into place. Changing switches is as easy as pulling them out and pushing in new ones.
🌈 RGB in-switch lighting and underglow – a light under each key switch gives individual keys a colorful look. And the PCB itself has underglow lights for a dreamy effect.
🔌 VIA-compatible – Customizing the keymap is easy with VIA Configurator.
Cable and Carrying Case
Portico comes with a starter USB-C coiled cable, and a carrying case with matching zipper accents.
If you're planning to upgrade to a custom cable, you'll only need the 1 USB-C cable! (No TRRS cables or otherwise.)
Switches are the components that sit under each keycap and register when you press a key. Portico comes with switches manufactured by SP-Star that are color-matched to your keycaps.
🟣 Tactile switch with 67g spring. Tactile switches have a "bump" feeling when you press down on them.
⚪ Materials: Nylon housing, POM stem, and gold spring and interior.
⚫ Comes with 75 switches. Portico uses 67 switches, so you'll have some extra.
🟡 Please note: Switches that come with the Portico Keyboard kit will not come packed in a tub.Pre-order Additional Switches
