Razer reveals the world's first Mecha-membrane keyboard

 

Razer has revealed their new Ornata keyboard, the world's first Mecha-membrane keyboard which combines the soft cushion feel provided by membrane keycaps with the tactile click of a mechanical key, effectively giving gamers the best of both worlds.

This keyboard will be available in both green and RGB LED variants, with the RGB variant featuring dedicated lighting profiles for popular games like Overwatch, Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Blade and Soul and a variety of other titles. 

Included with this keyboard is a detachable ergonomic wrist rest, which magnetically attaches to the keyboard if the user desires it. 

 

       The Razer Ornata Chroma features the all-new Razer™ Mecha-Membrane that combines the best of both membrane rubber domes and mechanical switches to deliver a typing experience unlike anything before. While traditional rubber dome keyboards are known for their soft cushioned touch, they fail to deliver accurate tactility due to their mushy feel and lack of actuation control. On the other hand, mechanical switches deliver fast actuations and distinct tactile feedback but cause fatigue during extended gaming sessions.

The result is the revolutionary patent pending Razer Mecha-Membrane that combines the best of both worlds by providing a soft cushioned touch along with a crisp tactile click in a mid-height keycap architecture allowing your fingers to fly across the keyboard ensuring every command is executed instantly.

 

  

Right now this keyboard is available on the Razerzone storefront for some regions, with worldwide availability coming in October. 

The RGB variant of the Ornata will come at the price of $99.99/ €109.90 with the Green illuminated version coming in at $79.99/89.90.

So from the press release I can't figure out exactly what it is?

It sounds a lot like a cherry mx blue, with o-rings installed? What exactly is the patented tech?

Only asking because I'm in the market for a new keyboard and the form factor looks really nice.Quote
