ikbc Poker II
The Poker II is a true 60% mechanical keyboard with real-time macro programming. iKBC removed all the non-essential keys and shifted their functionality to another layer within the keyboard. The result is a compact, aesthetically pleasing and highly functional keyboard.
The Poker II is available in both slim and low profiles.
Even though the Poker II is 40% smaller than a normal keyboard, nothing has been sacrificed in the shrinking process. The extra keys like arrow keys and the function row are accessible on a secondary function layer. Hold down the Fn key and “3” becomes "F3", hold down Fn key and “A” becomes “left arrow” etc.
Cherry MX Switches
For a unique and enjoyable typing experience iKBC has equipped the new Poker II with Cherry MX Switches, available in Red, Black, Brown and Blue.
This keyboard is fully programmable via hardware so no software is needed, just plug it in and start building macros. Since all of the programming happens on the keyboard, you can plug it into any computer and take your custom layouts wherever you go, all settings are saved on the onboard memory.
Here an example of customization:
If you want to program A as 123 starts by entering the programming mode by pressing FN + Right CTRL then the A key, then 1,2,3 and finish by pressing PN. At this point you can continue to program macros or end the programming mode, if you wish to continue programming, for example set FN + A to register 456, press FN + A then 4,5,6 and finish by pressing PN. If you want to exit the programming mode simply press FN + Right CTRL.
In addition to all the programming, there are 6 DIP switches on the back.
The DIP switches number 1 & 2 allow you to switch between the different layouts (Qwerty, Dvorak, Colemak & Workman).
The DIP switch number 3 allows you to change Fn & Pn positions.
The DIP switch number 4 turns on the arrow keys on left Shift / Fn / Pn / Ctrl.
The DIP switch number 5 switches Capslock / left Ctrl.
The DIP switch number 6 switches Win / Alt.
