  5. Record of Shenzhen Geek Circle’s Interview of Chassepot’s Product Manager (Part 3)

    We all know about the practicality of several of C1000’s classic function keys, but why can’t these keys support customization?

     

    It is undeniable that this is truly an existing problem, and is also a technical problem. We offer our apologies for the inconvenience caused due to these problems. This is because if there is no need to set up these keys, with the prerequisite of plug and play and through realizing these functions, we will write these functions into the keyboard’s firmware. The result is that these keys are incapable of supporting customization. We also made this kind of choice when we designed the keyboard. At the same time, the data doesn’t lie, as these functions are really frequently used, so we made a choice on the user’s behalf. If you really don’t like this, then I apologize to you once again!

  6. Record of Shenzhen Geek Circle’s Interview of Chassepot’s Product Manager (Part 2)

    After many gamers saw C1000’s layout, they asked why the Windows button was put in such a strange location, and said that nobody else had tried this before.

     

    Yes, the location of this key has been carefully thought out. First of all, we admit that the Windows key is a very dangerous key. This is because if it is pressed, it immediately jumps out of the current screen and enters a system options menu. So, many keyboards have a Windows key lock. Moreover, Windows is a fundamental key that combines function keys. In other words, the large majority of its functions are achieved by combining it with other keys, with the most common combination being Windows+E/R/D/F. Then this location should have the following characteristics: must not easily press the wrong keys and it can easily be used in combination with commonly used keybo

    Hello, Papoose, thank you for accepting this interview with Shenzhen Geek Circle.

    Thank you as well for your invitation.


    Ever since it was released, C1000 has been one of the sources of controversy for the Geek Circle’s peripherals enthusiasts. I have compiled some questions, and of course, I have some thoughts of my own. So my questions will be relatively direct and pointed. Is that OK with you?

    No problem.


    Did it really require 1000 days to develop C1000?

    This product was actually launched in 2012, and at that time, the esports market was not nearly as enormous, while the products also appeared as membrane keyboards. Later on, due to many factors, it was set aside for many years. It was not until 2016 th

  8. Table space Optimization: The Mechanical Keyboard Takes on Convention

    Ah, table space. So finite yet demanding so much function and attention.

    Have you ever had to move your keyboard just to make more room for your mouse?

    Or how about when you had to really consider your table width before buying a new

    keyboard or any computer peripheral for that matter?

    This dilemma is made even more grievous for professional gamers

    who might have to sacrifice performance if their table space is not optimized (D’Argenio 2018).

    It might not mean a lot, but an optimized table space translates to a lot of efficiency,

    which in turn is likely to help you dominate your tasks.

    The perfect place to start with it is your keyboard.

    The keyboard is the single most space taking peripheral on your desk, next to your monitor.

    Its position affects how you u
