Challenge - Panic, a leading software company for the Mac OS, tasked ATOM with the challenge of developing an illuminated computer keyboard from scratch. The keyboard needed to be unique, having customizable LED’s under each key allowing for the user to create any type of colored shortcuts and effects that they could dream up from video editing programs to custom applications.
Results - ATOM delivered a comprehensive turn-key solution that included hardware electronics, firmware and engineering. Providing these seamless services allowed Panic’s concept to become reality, paving the way for a thorough patent application and opportunities for the technology to be licensed to manufacturers. The keyboard is alive with instantaneous color change - each key delivering an incredible 2096 colors at any given time!
