Experiments with the joint

by dygma on August 24, 2018

What’s unique about the Dygma Raise is that it’s a split keyboard that you can attach and detach. This means that when it’s attached, it needs to have the sturdiness of a whole keyboard.

We’ve been working on different iterations for the joint piece of the Raise. It evolved from having a plastic joint to a metal joint, and to finally, metal pins! You can read more about it on our blog.

In the last weeks, we've been working hard finalizing the Golden Prototype. Missed our update about the Golden Prototype? Read all about it here.

We’ve been working on the different ways we can connect the metal pins for the joint of our Golden Prototype.

First experiment:

In our first experiment, we had all the male metal pins on one side, and all the female on the other. The attachment of the two halves felt strong and sturdy. It was easy to attach and detach, also because of the help of magnets. But we believed it could be done better.

Second experiment:

For our second experiment, we wanted to see the keyboard’s stability with only 2 pins. We found that it was still easy to attach and detach. But it didn’t feel as strong.

Third experiment:

Finally, in our third experiment, we alternated the male and female pins. This way, the clearance is distributed between both sides of the keyboard. We tested it and found that it felt more solid than the first experiment. It was the best option!

We are going ahead with this version of having the alternated male and female metal pins for the joint of the Raise. We still need to do some tests and adjust the metal pins for mass production, but in general, we are confident with this solution. It works perfectly!
