Endurance Artisan Spacebar keycap: A space odyssey captured in a keycap
Christopher Nolan’s film “Interstellar” is a masterwork that provides us with a lot of cosmic inspiration. The scene where Amelia flies a spaceship to rescue Cooper and they both return to the Endurance as Mann tries to attach his spaceship to the Endurance is one that sticks with us. What follows is very terrifying.
We had a burning desire to make a handmade artisan keycap based on the scenario for a long time. It took us years, countless ideas, and samples to finalize this design. The 6.25u keycap spacebar seems like a lot of canvas to work but we quickly realize it’s not a blessing in disguise.
It’s clear that astronauts play an important role in the SA Profile Moon keycap’s aesthetic appeal. We’ll have to hand-cast and paint all of the teeny-tiny astronauts. This procedure takes a long time to complete, especially when working with small items. One issue is getting them out of the molds; another is the amount of qualifying parts, as we must eliminate any defective ones.
Next is the landscape, there are some sleepless nights we spent making the prototype for it. We choose blue and purple as the main color story then we space out the design with color options on the spectrum to give depth to each detail of the Endurance Artisan Spacebar. The multidimensional floating patterns that make the galactic sky of the artisan resin keycap even more alive can also be seen. Each layer takes between 8 and 16 hours to cast, not to mention that emulsifiers take longer to cast than conventional materials.
We’re thrilled to share this Endurance Artisan Spacebar keycap with those who are fans of Interstellar and the cosmos in general. We hope you enjoy it!
