We are thrilled to inform you that we’re making great progress on the manufacturing of the Cleave keyboard, and that we are still on track for an estimated delivery date of Fall 2019.
Please note that the pre-ordered keyboards will be shipped as soon as they become available. We will be sending our backers an email just before shipping the Cleave keyboard to confirm the shipping address. At that time we will provide each a precise shipping date.
As with any manufacturing process, we have faced our share of standard manufacturing issues that have been solved, but unfortunately we encountered a major issue with the original palmrest being incorporated into the Aluminum Unibody. The palmrest was perfect in the prototypes, but we have encountered a problem that has arisen during mass production. It appears that the manufacturer hesitated to mention that we could have issues with the current palmrest configuration, and that if we continue with the current design, it would result in a fragile palmrest that does not meet our strict standards for reliable quality.
Consequently, after many weeks of hard work to find a perfect solution, we decided to redesign and enhance the original palmrest. Our solution is to have the palmrest made of a very durable PU (Polyurethane) material which makes it soft and smooth to the touch – this is the same material we used in our original Truly Ergonomic Keyboard (TEK). We believe that this solution actually betters the already great design, enhances productivity, and provides a cushioned and non-slippery palmrest. It’s actually more comfy to the touch compared to the original Aluminum palmrest which could get a bit chilly, while still remaining water, dust, and snack-resistant. As an added bonus, we feel that the overall look of the keyboard has been actually benefitted from this improvement.
Check out the updated images on our website to see the new palmrest. In our opinion, the Cleave Keyboard looks better than ever!
We were estimating that some orders could start shipping before Fall 2019, but since we were forced to redesign the palmrest and create new tooling/molds, manufacturing has been extended by a few weeks, so we now prefer to confirm that shipping is estimated to begin during Fall 2019.
We will continue to keep you informed of the manufacturing and delivery progress of the Truly Ergonomic Cleave Keyboard. In the meantime, please feel free to use our Contact-Us page should you have any questions or require further information.
