FILCO's take on Majestouch Ninja
Majestouch NINJA is a whole new concept keyboard. New style of letter printing - front printing.The biggest feature of this front printing is this new look that gives a look of "almost" a blank keycap keyboard. This means, printed letters can be seen only from a user and it is seen as a blank keycaps keyboard from others.This untraditional printing method does not expose you for fading letters on keycaps as there are no letters on top face where you actually touch to cause a friction when you type in. You will never feel stress from fading letters that would make your keyboard crummy. On the other hand, as the feature of this keyboard, front printing, is hard to look at the letters. This NINJA is perfect for the users who are confident in touch typing and also for users who feel total blank keycaps keyboard is a bit of a challenge. To make it match to our concept, we omitted the indicators of "Lock, Num, Caps, Scroll" on LED. Also logo is different from normal lineups to go with the concept and in this way, this keyboard looks "almost" completely black!
