Datamancer's Seafarer keyboard: brassy, nautical steampunk confection

The latest Datamancer keyboard is the Seafarer:

Coming Soon! We recently decided to try our hands at some brass-casting and this is the first result, "The Seafarer", an intensely ornate, nautically-themed keyboard with a worn-in, weather-beaten aesthetic. It features a gold foil map faceplate, protected by thick acrylic, spiral cut rods, and engraved gold metallic keys.

We plan to make several more cast brass designs in the near future, so feel free to join the mailing list to stay informed of their availability.

The Seafarer Keyboard


  1. Hi everyone, This was a “one-off” I made for a client, but I liked it so much that I decided to make it a standard production model. The keyboard is very usable, but this prototype does sit a little bit higher than most. I’m going to clean the design up quite a bit in the future and make it a somewhat lower, more compact, and more ergonomic design. 

    1. I think if you made this design available in the sub $100 range you might make a gazillion dollars.   

      If you make it better to type on than the average USB keyboard, you might make 2 gazillion dollars.
