Beetle / UV gel keypad

Beetle

Discipline: Material

Discipline: Material

The Beetle is an extremely thin, flexible keypad, with a beautiful multi-colored metallic effect, similar to a beetle’s back. The range of colors can be determined using different metals, and the surface pattern of the UV Gel layer can be customized using various techniques, such as spinning, to create a smooth, rough, shiny, or dull finish.
The materials used allow for raised keys which still maintain their flexibility, and since the upper surface is transparent and highly scratch-resistant, so there is no problem with graphics wearing off.
