On April 12, 2023, Tokai Rika Corporation (Aichi, Japan) announced the ZENAIM KEYBOARD, the industry’s first non-contact magnetic detection keyboard.
The ZENAIM KEYBOARD is said to provide a smooth pressing feel with minimal rattling, and is designed to sense the on/off switch no matter where the key is pressed, and to have the same key press and return load.
The dedicated ZENAIM SOFTWARE can also be used to change the actuation point, etc.
In addition, from the captured images, it seems that it is possible to change the keymap, lighting, etc., as in VIA.
The image shows a very thin low-profile keyboard.
As for the size, it is probably 80% TKL.
The background of the ZENAIM KEYBOARD release is the launch of ZENAIM, a gaming gear brand for e-sports.
