What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

In workplaces of the world, most of the office workers have already gotten used to sitting before desktop computer, consisting of a case, a monitor, a keyboard and a mouse, which really occupy much space, not inexpensive, not easily be moved and also consume much power. We want to do something, to make change, to convince, to demonstrate: LESS IS MORE!

Inspired by the idea, most of the computer modules decided to be separated from the case and to partner up with the keyboard directly, saying bye-bye to the bulky case. With you and our amazing partners, we can accomplish our goal together.


What’s K2 ?

K2 is such a legacy-free product. It’s more than a keyboard. It combines PCB mainboard, CPU, GPU,RAM,ROM and I/O ports etc. into keyboard, the outlets are all at the back of the keyboard. They are power button, audio jack, VGA, MIC, ethernet, USB3.0, reset, USB2.0, HDMI, DC jack and micro-SD card, besides, this keyboard computer only weighs 1.04 pounds. It's ultra slim and portable. This computer has a brand-new outward design , which leads to more accurate keystroke and more comfortable keyboard input.

Compared to ordinary desktops, K2 is not only slimmer and more cost-effective, but also consumes much less power. For example, K2 consumes no more than 10 watts of power whereas a typical desktop would easily consume more than 60~80 watts. Consequently, K2 requires significantly less cooling and may even be completely fanless. We use heat dissipation module composing of AL alloy radiator and graphite sheet to transfer the heat to the stainless steel plate. You will feel a whole new PC experience.

Hardware introduction

K2 adopts wire drawing process made of 304 stainless steel, with a full chocolate-style keyboard of floating islands. Because of its coolness and portability, we believe it will become the first choice for businessmen and global sales.

Imagine a scene, a group of high-level project leaders come to visit your company, and you have to do a PPT presentation. What you have to do is to connect K2 to the projector, through power, HDMI cable and download the data from the cloud via network, afterwards, you could do the demo. with ease and convenience, by doing so, you don’t have to bring your laptop to the meeting room every time. Moreover, you could connect K2 to any display, which will exploit the performance to the maximum. Amazing, isn’t it? This will make your project more eye-catching and easier.

 

For portability, performance and heat dissipation, we choose Intel Cherry Trail-x5 Z8350 with 4-core 4-thread design and 4GB LPDDR 3 RAM, 64GB eMMC or Intel Celeron Processor N3450 with 4-core 4-thread design and 8GB LPDDR 3 RAM, 128GB eMMC.

Parameter comparison

 

Software introduction

K2 supports windows 10 home system. It could be used in the field of light office such as securities trading, PPT design, as well as sending emails, gaming, shopping, music, business, news and so on.K2 can connect 2 monitors.In fact, it can connnect more monitors.

Reducing friction between hands and desktop which offers you maximum support and more comfortability while typing or playing games.Help you maintain proper wrist alignment,and will help you avoid joint and wrist problems (rheumatoid arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome). Non-skid backing holds pad firmly in place to ensure the wrist pad does not slide when used on smooth desktop. This Rosewood keyboard wrist pad conforms to hand weight, yet does not lose its shape.

In order to achieve a product with appearance simple, strong and durable, ultra-slim and light, with keeping computer’s all the functions working in just a keyboard set, we have gone through nearly a year of design and pilot-run, only we ourselves can understand the painstaking. From the earliest thinking logic and innovative sketch design to the 3D printer model and structural design, until today, the prototype has been basically fulfilled. We have paid a huge cost. 

The reason why we raise funds in the Kickstarter is that the mold, research and development as well as components procurement costs are expensive. All the funds we raise will be directly used for this product’s mass production. We believe that such a product will touch all geeks who like portable devices. We really hope that you will support this project. For keyboard PC, let us work together!

Risks and challenges

We already made a pre-serial production of 30 keyboard computers that we have been testing with media and fans experiences. It works perfectly.

As regards of logistics, the lead time of some material such as CPU is as long as 90 days, so we have to inform you the delivery time shall be in 3 months after ending of crowd-funding.

Concerning of material like stainless steel, since surface finishing is done manually, we need to spend more time in processing the edges of the stainless steel so that it doesn't scratch us.

Besides, we need to spend some time on UL and CE certification for those large-volume orders.
