The Vissles keyboard will apply similar optical switches and even spacing as the keys on an Apple Magic keyboard. It also happens to have per-key RGB lighting and a thickness profile of just 7.9 mm at its thinnest point.

USB keyboards come in all shapes and sizes with membrane-based or mechanical switches. Hong Kong-based manufacturer Vissles is looking to shake things up with a super-compact keyboard weighing just 545 g based on optical switches.

Called the Vissles LP85, the 75 percent keyboard is only 7.9 mm thick at its thinnest point to be one of the thinnest USB keyboards you can find. In order to preserve the feel and feedback of traditional keys, the optical switches of the LP85 will offer an actuation force of 50G with 0.2 ms response time, 1.2 mm pre-travel, and 2.5 mm total travel. The aluminum keyboard deck should also have excellent rigidity relative to its weight.

Though rare, optical switches have appeared on a small handful of laptops thus far including on the 2019 Razer Blade 15. Vissles is expecting to launch the LP85 by this October 12 for a price of just under $100 USD which is when we expect to receive more information on the model.

Hong Kong, September 14th, 2021 - Vissles, a company committed to bringing in high-quality electronic accessories, launches an ultra-thin optical keyboard - Vissles LP85, a wireless compact design that brings ergonomic comfort, speed, and a tailor-made user experience to typing. 

Vissles LP85 keyboard comes in a slim and sleek housing that embraces a modern hip style while offering excellent performance for gamers and creators. The thinnest part of the housing is only 0.31 inches, it comes with a durable anodized aluminum chassis. A 75% compact layout delivers battle-tested excellence, precision, and responsiveness.

LP85 is built for excellence and novelty with premium X-optical switches that deliver a light beam of 0.2ms, with an incredibly short actuation distance of 1.2mm pre-travel and 2.5mm total travel, it brings you a similar typing feel like a mechanical keyboard but a lot more ergonomic.

RGB backlit under each keycap, allowing you to choose from unique pre-programmed designs of 19 dynamics and 8 monochrome backlit modes to match battle intensity during gameplay or to reflect the art of calm in the middle of the night.

LP85 is one of the few mechanical keyboards featuring Mac layout media keys. It can be paired with up to 3 devices, allowing you to seamlessly switch between desktops, laptops, and mobile phones. If you are a Windows user, LP85 also got you covered, feel free to choose from the black and white scheme!

“Unlike traditional mechanical switches, optical switches require fewer moving parts and no metallic contacts – only pure light. LP85 has a longer life span compared to other mechanical keyboards. Together with excellent stabilizers, clicky feedback, the switches make the LP85 one of the best ultra-low profile keyboards out there.” said Casey Chan, LP85’s Product Designer
