We absolutely love these! We’ve covered all the top backlit, state-of-the-art keyboards, but now we are looking at throw-back, backlit keyboards with today’s technology. Azio has released the Azio Retro Classic Keyboard in several configurations, and they pretty groovy. How many of you remember the clickety click of the manual typewriter. Well, not many probably. Maybe you remember seeing one in the old detective, smoke-filled rooms in the movies. This is an Indiegogo project which has been funded at 1591%! So there is a high demand for that clicking sound in the office.

These vintage keyboards are the most luxurious typewriter-inspired mechanical keyboard. You will have the sound of the mechanical piece with today’s technology. One model incorporates genuine leather, metal alloy, an backlit keycaps. It is available in a wired USB interface for Windows computers or a wireless bluetooth plus USB hybrid interface for Mac or Windows.

Azio Retro Classic Keyboard Features

  • Genuine and Luxurious: The design was to incorporate natural materials of a high quality build which brought back the nostalgia of vintage goods. Genuine leather was decided for the top plate since it is associated with high-end customized goods and exclusiveness. It reflects taste, craftsmanship, and culture while emitting a unique charm that inspires.
  • Forged, Polished, Plated, Everlasting: The keyboard frame is forged with zinc aluminum alloy, then polished and plated into a beautiful black chrome (or satin copper finish) to accompany the leather top plate.  Hex bolts are added for structural enhancements and to add an industrial vintage element to the keyboard. This alloy frame is corrosion free but through time and use, it will eventually start to bear weathering marks.
  • Clicky, Tactile, Backlit: Each mechanical switch has a backlight LED in the center. This allows the keyboard to illuminate evenly and beautifully.
  • Azio Typelit Mechanical Switch: The Retro Classic keyboard’s key switch was designed to be tactile and clicky just like a vintage typewriter.
  • Exclusive and Exquisite Final Touch: Each keyboard has a custom logo plaque with premium-grade, brushed anodized aluminum. Each plaque is embossed with the product name and filled with a glossy lacquer paint for a classy shine.
