CYBERBOARD R4 Graffiti (multi-color anodizing)

Sale price$670.00 USD
Variant: Paisley Base Kit

Variant

CYBERBOARD is back in the form of R4 with an adjustable leaf-spring mount and multi-color anodizing. The design is inspired by the Supreme x The North Face collab Paisley jacket, as well as the works from American graffiti artist Basquiat and Spanish contemporary artist Felipe Pantone. This, in combination with numerous upgrades to its internals, makes R4 our most stunning and best sounding CYBERBOARD yet.

From street fashion to street art

From the gangs of the West Coast to favelo graffiti. And from rebellion to the legend of SAMO IS DEAD, to the abstract of OP ART's retro-futuristic style. Contemporary art and works that are perceived as "phenomenal" often emerge from one's surroundings. In order to pay tribute to these great works and artists, we have incorporated multi-color anodizing for the first time in an Angry Miao product, combining these iconic street trends and artistic symbols with the luster of metal, complementing each other.

Paying homage to street art with multi-color anodizing

Street art often involves complex elements such as graffiti, tattoos, clothing, and artwork.

It's hard to apply such elements to metal with conventional metal surface treatment processes. Therefore, techniques such as transfer printing, immersion printing, or spray painting are often used. However, these techniques fail to provide the feel and durability anodizing offers.

This is why we opted for multi-color anodizing.

With multi-color anodizing, we can apply two or more different colors to a metal surface, while maintaining the advantages of anodizing. That means we can keep the look and feel of metal, while applying complex patterns and textures to the keyboard body. Patterns applied using multi-color anodizing will not wear or peel off.

The CYBERBOARD R4 Graffiti marks the first time that multi-color anodizing is used on a keyboard.

Inspired by the Supreme x The North Face Paisley jacket

Paisley

The North Face, which represents the spirit of outdoor exploration, and Supreme, the holy grail of street culture, released their Paisley collab jacket back in 2014.

Upon its release, the paisley pattern-covered jacket immediately became an Urban Outdoor collector's item that's very hard to find.

By the use of multi-color anodizing, we applied the silver pattern on top of the black background color, bringing the paisley pattern to CYBERBOARD. Each pattern is carefully designed using multi-color anodizing, allowing the paisley pattern to bloom on CYBERBOARD's keyboard body. And best of all, it will never fade.

Inspired by Basquiat's graffiti works

Bebop

Jean-Michel Basquiat is famous street graffiti artist. His style takes influences from street art, graffiti and African art.His work is characterized by bold lines, bright colors and symbols, often including skulls, crowns, symbols and words, symbolizing his reflections on themes such as race, power and death.

We got inspired by the style of his works and used the aluminum body of CYBERBOARD as a drawing board with silver as the base color. We applied Basquiat-style graffiti on top of the silver base with multi-color anodizing.

Adjustable Leaf Spring Mount, choose between hard or soft

We have completely reworked the internals for CYBERBOARD R4. Our highly praised Adjustable Leaf Spring Mount, which was first released with AM AFA, is now available with CYBERBOARD for the first time. With our Adjustable Leaf Spring Mount, the typing feel of your keyboard no longer depends on the hardness of the Top Mount or the softness of the Gasket Mount. It's completely up to you.By mixing stainless steel and phosphorus copper leaf springs, adjusting the three gear levels and using different pads, you can achieve your perfect typing combo.

Updated internals, upgraded feel

The best sounding CYBERBOARD yet

With the experience accumlated from developing AM AFA and AM Compact Touch, we believe we have found the perfect setup when it comes to keyboard internals.
