Launch uses only three keycap sizes to vastly expand your configuration options. The included key puller makes it easy to pop and place keys where you want them, and extra keycaps are provided in different sizes, contours, and red and blue accent colors. In addition, multilayer functionality gives you up to four layers for personalized application shortcuts, adjusting hardware functions, non-QWERTY layouts, and more.
A wide swath of customization options makes Launch flexible to your needs. The keyboard's thoughtful design keeps everything within reach, vastly reducing awkward hand contortions. Maximum configurability ensures your hands can operate entirely from home row while your fingers rest on soft, textured keys. The split Space Bar brings important keys like Bksp, Shift, or Fn to your Space Bar for quick and comfortable thumb access-without altering your existing habits. A tenkeyless (TKL) layout means your mouse is only a short hand movement away.
In addition to the central USB-C port for connecting to your system, Launch features two high-speed USB-C and USB-A ports. Transfer 1TB of video footage in 15 minutes, compared to 5 hours on other keyboards.*
*For maximum transfer speed, Launch must be plugged into a USB 3.2 Gen 2 port on your computer. Estimate based on maximum potential data transfer speed.
Launch features a chassis milled out of a solid block of aluminum, as well as a custom PCB (printed circuit board). It's designed, engineered, and manufactured in Denver by a team of very particular keyboard nerds. Solid milled aluminum and rubber feet stabilize the chassis and prevent it from moving around on your desk. Type flat or add the magnetic foot for a 15-degree incline. Features such as soothing LEDs allow you to cycle through various light patterns and a large RGB color spectrum. Royal switches offer a muted clack for your listening pleasure as you type.
Launch's firmware is based on open source QMK firmware. Updates can only be initiated by the user, and are available through Pop!_OS firmware settings and LVFS. When your firmware is updated, your keyboard LEDs will flash U-N-L-O-C-K-E-D, notifying you that the firmware is being changed.
