- completely reworked
- clear white light
- usb c
we’ve redesigned the grid, again. but this time almost everything is new, even though we added nothing.
the redesigned keypad is produced by a massachusetts keyboard company. the size is the same, the feel is slightly snappier yet easier to press. the detection mechanics are improved. the aluminum enclosure has been optimized both to use less material and machine time. overall the grid is slightly thinner and certainly lighter. the circuit uses fewer components and consumes less power. the light is clear and neutral. usb c means easy connection without orientation and also is more sturdy.
these improvements have allowed us to radically drop the price while still producing in small batches using trusted local suppliers.
we haven’t added features and the protocol is the same. this new grid simply continues the expanding journey.
pre-orders now live:
we expect to ship roughly 150 units in early june. further orders will have estimates provided.
thank you for your continued support.
ps. monome is 15. more on that soon.
