The story of Freya's beginning


Wuque Studio has not released new products for an extended period. On one hand, we aspire to present perfection to everyone; on the other hand, that comes at the cost of refusing to compromise in craftsmanship, design, and functionality. In the current market environment, many utilize silk screen printing, UV, and other techniques to showcase art. However, from the very inception of Wuque Studio, our original intention was to utilize the purest metal craftsmanship to exhibit elegant art.
 
Here, I insisted on personal convictions, leading to excessively long product development cycles. Driven by pure passion, the products are meticulously crafted, returning to the essence of the keyboard itself.
 
However, in the past few years, as the trend of soft tactile sensations has gained popularity, people have started to reminisce about the feel and sound of their OG keyboards. This aligns with our initial vision.
 
While retaining the soft and responsive feel, we have focused on ensuring a crisp sound without the use of additional foam. To achieve more intense tactile feedback, we eliminated elastic gasket sleeves.
 
Instead, we utilized springs to support the plate, minimizing deformation as much as possible. This approach creates a localized sweet rebound, ensuring a soft yet robust feel that’s refreshing and not overly saturated.
 
Simultaneously, we offer a choice between 1.2mm and 1.6mm PCB to cater to individual preferences. Depending on your liking, you can select the PCB that best suits your preferences.
 
Regarding the plate, this time we've implemented partitioning to cater to individual preferences. Personally, I prefer the clean and uncluttered feel of shift keys (aluminum alloy positioning plate). When typing in the alphanumeric keys area, I enjoy the soft tactile feel (PC positioning plate). Using the soft alphanumeric keys area, with the support of the aluminum alloy plate, this results in strong feedback confirmation. This keyboard feels like a drum set; hitting the alphanumeric keys area is akin to beating on a large drum, with the shift keys area resembling that of a small drum. The enter and space keys act like cymbals, providing different tones. Typing becomes a musical experience, immersing you in a world of continuous keystrokes, becoming increasingly captivating.
 
The left five keys and knob add more versatility to the keyboard, catering to diverse needs. We experimented with various rotary potentiometers and ultimately chose the Alps model. After extensive testing over six months, this potentiometer proved to be problem-free.
 
The touchscreen rotary module in the upper right corner required a significant amount of time for research and development. We know that upon introducing such a feature, there will inevitably be critics.
 
However, someone must be courageous enough to explore new ideas. After we released the IC diagram early in the process, we found others attempting similar projects. Instead of rushing the release, we focused on optimizing our software. Until today, I believe there is still room for further software improvement, however, we are committed to continuous upgrades, corrections, enhancements, and the addition of more intriguing features.
 
Of course, if this feature is not to your liking, you have the option to switch to a four-key module, offering a choice between tradition and creation.
 
As for the side wings on the keyboard, they are the aspect of the design that we are most satisfied with. As mentioned at the beginning, we aim to use the purest metal craftsmanship to showcase elegant and atmospheric lines.
