NightFox Keyboard Kit - True Fox
Note: if the join waitlist button doesn't work, here is a direct link.
The NightFox is a darker, more mysterious version of the WhiteFox Mechanical Keyboard. Its singular aesthetic alterations make it visually compatible with black computer peripherals. The case and plate are carefully matched to a dark anthracite color.
Note: keycaps are not included in this kit. They are available separately.
Matteo Spinelli and Input Club collaborated to create the NightFox. Its CNC machined aluminum case and wide switch compatibility are peerless.
NightFox True Fox kits, which may not be compatible with standard keycap sets, are not assembled. You will need to solder and use tools to build them. Community resources and guides to the process are widely available.
True Fox base kits include:
- CNC milled, anodized aluminum case
- Hex screw set (8x 2mm key size)
- Aluminum feet (2) with rubber pads (6)
- Machined, anodized aluminum plate in True Fox layout
- NightFox / WhiteFox PCB
- Stabilizers (1x 6 unit, 4x 2 unit)
You can complete your kit with these items:
- Dimensions: LxWxH 12 ½ x 4 ⅜ x 1.15 in.
- Weight: 1 lb. 9.9 oz.
Input Club recommends Hako mechanical switches for its keyboards. Jacob Alexander (HaaTa), a legend in the keyboard community, designed them to provide peak typing performance. You can view their force curves in The Comparative Guide to Mechanical Switches on Input Club’s website.
The NightFox heralds a new class of open source keyboards. It easily surpasses top of the line gaming models in transmission speed, aesthetics, and key feel. You can find files to make your own NightFox / WhiteFox on Github. You’ll just need to swap some anodization colors around.
The True Fox layout is optimized for rapid typing and quick computer input. Tweaks in KLL, a custom firmware that allows deep customization, enable software-free key reassignments and macros for optimal productivity. The NightFox, which is natively compatible with most operating systems, offers N-key rollover in Windows, Linux, and Mac OS.The NightFox can be programmed in a number of ways. Our easy to use client-side configuration tool is recommended (see this video). If you have questions about specific operating system processes or requirements, please follow this link.
