Angry Miao Launches AM HATSU Organically Shaped Wireless Split Ergo Keyboard

Under its Make Art Not Tech vision, Angry Miao launched AM HATSU yesterday, the world's first organically shaped wireless · 3D · split ergo keyboard, priced at 1600 USD. "Why is nobody using advanced five-axis CNC and the fastest wireless technology to create a keyboard that truly speaks to the user's imagination and actually improves the health of the shoulder and neck?" said Li Nan, founder of Angry Miao. "It's because nobody dares to create a keyboard that pushes boundaries and has no regard for cost".

Westworld is a sci-fi drama set in the future, with a brain-burning plot exploring human nature. Its widely praised opening animation comprises of a futuristic robotic arm sculpting a living organic shape, matched with the rhythm of piano and string music. This opening animation was the inspiration of AM HATSU's design. Aviation-grade five-axis CNC metal crafting and surface treatment technology is used to create the organically shaped AM HATSU, just like the bionic man in Westworld.

Ballistix Introduces the Tactical Tracer DDR4 Gaming Modules With RGB Capability

Ballistix has announced the DDR4 version of their Tactical Tracer memory modules, with the new memory type allowing for the usual DDR4 speeds, starting at 2,666 MHz. Since these share the same brains as the non-RGB tactical modules the company already distributes, one can expect timings (CAS latencies of 15 and 16), speeds and voltages (starting at 1.20V) to be in-line with previous offerings. These include the usual tactical Tracer specs, including XMP profiles, a black PCB, and customizable heat spreaders. The RGB lighting allows users to tailor the look of their memory according to their chosen rig color scheme, while offering at-a-glance temperature control (blue is cool, red is not.) All RGB features are controlled through yet another RGB controller software: in this case, the Ballistix M.O.D. (Memory Overview Display) software.

The customizable heat spreaders don't stop on the RGB lighting options, though; actually, Ballistix is offering a removable module for the heat-spreaders that users can customize by 3D printing substitute parts. The company is providing the 3D printer design files on its website, though you should be able to build upon them with your own. This is one of the most interesting features of these modules, though I wager we'll see a much higher 3D printing penetration once those little machines that can get their pricing further reduced (make no mistake - 3D printing is one of the most promising consumer technologies. Pricing information is currently unavailable, though Ballistix said the Tactical Tracer DDR4 RGB modules will be available in Q3 - with a limited lifetime warranty to boot.
