Happy Hacking Keyboard Professional HYBRID Type-S Snow
HHKB Hybrid Type-S Snow
The printed version features a Helvetica style lite typeface never seen before on HHKB models.
Available with either printed or blank keycaps.
Minimalist, Tenkeyless, Near-Symmetrical Layout
Designed with a lot of white space for a minimalist and stylish design.
The compact size and near-symmetrical layout means your fingers never have to leave the home row, making for greater speed, accuracy and reduced wrist and finger fatigue. Key characters are printed in the center. Lowercase function keys are located at the lower left and lower right.
Topre Silent Key Switches
Comprising a conical spring, rubber dome, electrostatic capacitive sensor and silent membrane, Topre silent key switches eliminate key chatter, whilst providing supreme tactility, extra comfort, keystroke precision and a quieter HHKB experience.
Premium PBT Keycaps and Spacebar
Sculpted keycaps and spacebar made from durable, shine-resistant PBT with dye-sublimation printed legends for long-life and a crisp, professional finish.
Cylindrical Step Sculpted Design
The cylindrical-step sculpted design provides greater ergonomics, with all keycap surfaces facing centrally, feels more natural and helps you keep your fingers on the home row.
Connect to your PC or hybrid device via USB (Type-C), or connect to your PC, Tablet, Smartphone (up to 4 paired devices) via bluetooth multi-pairing, instantly switching between devices with keyboard shortcuts.
Dip-Switches enable you to change keyboard mode to support different Operating Systems.
We adopted the key arrangement following the Sun Type 3 key array. The [Control] key is to the left of [A] for greater usability and maximum productivity.
