Inspiration & DesignDrawing inspiration from Victorian era design, The Diviner Keyboard is a modern USB keyboard with a natural wooden frame and vintage typewriter key caps. The chassis is carved from a single piece of choice poplar, a lightweight yet durable wood, giving the border its elegant curves and making room for the important internal parts of the keyboard. After carving, the wood is carefully routed along the edges with a Roman Ogee pattern and then finely hand sanded until the wood has a remarkably smooth texture. Then, the wood is cleaned, stained with a deep red mahogany color, and given time to let the stain penetrate and set into the piece. Two thick coats of ultra clear semi-gloss lacquer are applied to the work after it has been given ample time to set, and then it is wet sanded with ultra fine sandpaper to flatten out any uneven material. Finally it is coated again with a heavy layer of lacquer to provide a lasting and beautiful finish.
The four corners and center point are adorned with acanthus victorian stamped brass findings that frame the typewriter key caps and accent the edges of the Diviner. Adjustable polished brass knobs act as risers underneath the keyboard that, when combined with the rubber pads at the bottom, ensure it is secure on any desk surface. The keyboard lock indicator LEDs are covered with refractive red jewel lenses wrapped in brass with a silver coating.
Functionality and Reliability
At the heart of every Datamancer keyboard are electronics chosen for their superior quality and adaptability. German engineered Cherry MX blue mechanical switches are used on each keyboard. These keyswitches feature a tactile click reminiscent of a vintage typewriter, and are rated for 50 million keystrokes. Dip switches allow hardware level support for QWERTY, Dvorak, and Colemak keyboard layouts that work on Windows, Linux, and Mac operating systems. Lastly, function (FN) media controls come standard.

Our keycaps replicate the feeling of using an old fashioned typewriter. Each key is wrapped in a metal housing and includes lettering that will never fade.
