The WhiteFox keyboard is a collaboration project between Matteo Spinelli (matt3o) and Input Club, and previously was produced with Massdrop. The design of the WhiteFox was meticulously prepared and took almost an entire year to come to life. The WhiteFox is a 65% mechanical keyboard with an aluminum case and plate, Cherry profile PBT dye-sublimated keycaps, a huge variety of keyswitch options including Cherry MX, Gateron, and Zealios, and a fully programmable PCB. The PCB is based on the same architecture as the Infinity Keyboards and is programmable using our web configurator, by command line, or with the popular keyboard firmware TMK.

The WhiteFox keyboard is available as a kit you can assemble yourself or pre-built and ready to go out of the box. For more information from Matteo Spinelli himself, read this blog post on the making of the WhiteFox.

The WhiteFox keyboard is the direct descendant of the BrownFox keyboard kit which was born on the Deskthority and Geekhack keyboard forums. This post provided inspiration to keyboard designers everywhere and is considered one of the original DIY keyboard kits in modern mechanical keyboard culture. The design is also the product of years of research and experience and has many little details that separate it from other mechanical keyboards.

Notably, the plate is made with aluminum instead of steel to provide a small amount of flex with every keypress. Steel plates tend to be very firm and unrelenting and bottoming out constantly through use can be tiring. Also, the aluminum plate’s mounting screws are flush with the top of the plate, an incredibly tricky design detail that truly makes the keyboard exceptional. The PCB is colored white to better fit with the overall “WhiteFox theme” and the keyset was modeled after a beautiful picture of an Arctic Fox.
