Exploration begins with observation, and the things we first explore are often the things that are closest to home. For this reason, Kindlestar named their first keyboard after Orion's Arm, a minor spiral of the Milky Way Galaxy that we Earthlings call home. Based on designs of the 20th century spacecraft and radio telescopes that first gathered information about our galactic neck of the woods, the Orion 87 exudes retro Space Age charm.

Take complete control of your hefty aluminum workstation. Program your Orion 87 with macros, layers, and even alternative layouts like Dvorak. Plug in a USB Type-C cable for high-speed connection or use Bluetooth 5.1 for a minimalist desk look (Note - this will require an aftermarket battery). Despite its full aluminum frame, the Orion 87 enables Bluetooth wireless through an included antenna. This means the best of both worlds, a clean surface free of cables while evoking a sleek industrial look.

The Orion 87 is made with a TKL design that is more compact than full-size keyboards without ever feeling cramped. It comes with a polycarbonate plate that absorbs more sound than metal plates and adds a degree of flex when typing. The plate is also gasket mounted with foam for a cushioned feel that manages vibration and absorbs shock. Install your favorite 3-pin or 5-pin switches into the hotswap-ready PCB and create a keyboard sound profile that's out of this world.
