A Cyboard to Build On

In a certain dystopian future set in the year 2077, nearly all humans are building themselves into cyborgs. Here in the present, we figured you could do the same for your desk—with the new Drop CTRL High-Profile Cyboard Barebones Keyboard. Devoid of keycaps or switches, this borg-turned-board features the same bright-yellow case as our top-tier Cyboard—making it the perfect foundation for building your endgame typing machine. With extra volume and height to cover your switches, the aluminum Cyboard high-profile case is machined at a 6-degree angle for ergonomic typing with surplus sturdiness. Thanks to the Kaihua hot-swappable switch sockets, you can easily change out your switches whenever you want with no soldering required. And with powerful QMK programmability, you can assign macros or custom keybinds to every key. Connect seamlessly through dual USB-C ports, and customize your RGB look with onboard backlighting and underlighting to create a board worthy of whatever implants you choose to give it.

Optimized Per-Key Lighting With Millions of Colors

The CTRL High-Profile Cyboard Barebones Keyboard is optimized to deliver the ideal amount of light through any keycaps you install on top of it. With its onboard RGB LEDs, you’ll also have your choice from millions of different colors for every single key. So if you want the lighting to  cycle through the entire spectrum, you’ve got it; if you prefer a  two-toned look to match your setup, consider it done. There’s also a built-in LED diffuser with light-blocking material to minimize hotspots found in many other keyboards. Worried about flickering? Don’t be. The backlighting displays at a super-high frame rate (100 hertz), so there's no annoying stutters.

Fully Programmable Via QMK

With mechanical keyboards, half the fun is in the customization—and it doesn’t have to stop at the hardware. That’s why the CTRL High-Profile features a fully programmable PCB designed for modification. Using the QMK-compatible Drop Keyboard Configurator, you have total control over every key. Plus, the Configurator allows you to program macros and customized keymapping, so you can easily fine-tune your keyboard for gaming, work, or play. Externally, the CTRL High-Profile even features dual USB-C connectors (one on each side), allowing you to use one for dedicated data transfer and device charging while typing.

A Thicker, Heavier Frame & Hot-Swappable Switches

The CTRL High-Profile is made from a large block of anodized aluminum—available here in our new Cyboard colorway—which is known for its toughness and ability to hold a  quality surface finish. About twice as heavy as the original CTRL, this is one keyboard that won’t budge, no matter how hard you’re typing. And thanks to the built-in switch plate and hot-swappable PCB, the CTRL High-Profile gives you the freedom to change out  switches whenever you like. In fact, the gaps on the sides of the case are specifically designed for the included switch-removal tool. Most importantly: you don’t need to solder each switch. Just pop them in, and they’re ready to go.

They come with magnetic feet that are in the bottom of the box with the other accessories. Are you positive you didn't get any? I believe that if you contact support they will try in most cases...Read More
