Matias releases sleek Aluminum keyboards
with RGB Backlight for Mac & PC
optimized for working at night

LAS VEGAS, January 9, 2018 — Matias today released RGB-Backlit versions of its Wired Aluminum Keyboard for Mac and PC. With modern Apple-inspired styling, it’s available in Silver and Space Gray aluminum for Mac, and in Black Aluminum for PC.

“We designed this keyboard for pro users who need backlighting, but also require the rock-solid reliability of a wired keyboard, including a built-in USB port to connect their mouse of choice,” said Edgar Matias, CEO of Matias. “With the iMac Pro now shipping and a next-generation Mac Pro forthcoming, our new wired backlit keyboard is a perfect match.”

“Colours are selected by simply turning a dial. It goes from White to Yellow, through the spectrum, then back to White. This lets you dial back the Blue component of White light, when you’re working late in the evening. Too much Blue-light exposure at night is known to negatively impact melatonin levels, which can shift your body’s natural time clock — leading to poor sleep and various other health issues. Our RGB backlight was SPECIFICALLY designed to address this problem,” said Matias. (Source: Harvard sleep study)

The keyboards will be available in a wide range of international layouts (US, EU, Asian) and can be pre-ordered now. They will be on display at CES next week, in Booth 36817, South Hall 4 of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
