GMK Chaos Theory has been a long time coming, and dotnick has truly delivered! The inspiration comes from his recent interest in the topic of chaos theory and everything involved, including: parallel dimensions, multiple universes, the duality of chaos and order, and the math/physics that underpins all of this.
The Order and Chaos base kits provide support for 60%, 65%, 75%, and TKL layouts for terminal ISO and ANSI layouts. There is also support for ergonomic/split keyboard layouts (split space bars and a second B). The R4 2.25U shift supports 660-like and type K layouts. F13 requiring boards and 40% keyboards (R3 1.50U Enter, R3 1.25U Tab, R2 1.75U Backspace) are also supported.
The main novelty that repeats in the accent colors is the symbol of chaos. The concepts of ordered and disordered systems are two commonly studied and connected topics within chaos theory that dotnick wanted to represent artistically in the novelties. In the paired columns of novelties, the symbol of chaos and the symbol of extropy (the extent of a living or organizational system’s capacity and drive for improvement and growth) are featured. Continuing down from R2-R4, two columns of novelties depict fundamental shapes (hexagon, square, triangle, and circle/spiral) in ordered and disordered forms. The ISO enter novelty is an abstract rendition of the nautilus shell/logarithmic spiral motif, and two R4 1.25U and 1.50U text novelties commemorate famous scientists who have contributed significantly to the field of chaos theory.
In collaboration with GMK Chaos Theory are two metal artisans: our first collaboration with HIBI, depicting the Lorenz attractor butterfly with a brass base, colourful PVD coating, and luminous glow enamel fill. The second is with our friends over at KeyLabs, whose keycap will have 20 possible combinations of enamel infill! The various infill colours will be a combination of two: pink, green, purple, yellow, and red. The keycap has an aluminum base anodized to match the modifiers’ dark purple.
