The Varmilo Aurora Themed Keyboard
The design of Varmilo Aurora keyboard comes from the Nordic team Mudflat. We hope Aurora can serve as a carrier to present the spectacular polar light of the Scandinavia. Thus, the overall design is minimalist.
Dancing Lights in the Sky
The formation of auroras is the result of the interaction between Earth’s magnetic field and solar wind. The Sun emits a high-speed flow of charged particles known as solar wind, which carries energy and magnetic fields into the outer space of the solar system. When the charged particles in the solar wind approach Earth, they interact with Earth’s magnetic field.
The movement of molten outer core inside the Earth generates Earth’s magnetic fields. This magnetic field surrounds the entire Earth and extends into space. The magnetic field is produced by a huge electric current generated by the motion of the liquid outer core, primarily composed of iron and nickel, surrounding the Earth.
When the charged particles in the solar wind approach Earth, they interact with the charged particles in Earth’s magnetic field. These charged particles mainly consist of electrons and protons from the solar wind. Upon entering the region of Earth’s magnetic field, these charged particles experience the influence of the magnetic force and traverse along the magnetic field lines.
In the polar regions of Earth’s magnetic field, the magnetic field lines enter the Earth, forming channels called magnetic flux tubes. When the charged particles from the solar wind travel along these flux tubes and enter Earth’s atmosphere, they collide with atoms and molecules in the atmosphere.
Unveiling the Mysteries of Auroras
These collisions cause excitation and ionization of atoms and molecules, resulting in the emission of visible light. Different gases emit different colors of light, for example, oxygen produces green and red light, while nitrogen produces blue and purple light.
Auroras are the known name for these visible light phenomena. People most commonly observe auroras in the polar regions near the Earth’s North Pole and South Pole, where the magnetic flux tubes are relatively dense, facilitating the entry of charged particles into the atmosphere and their collision with it. When observed near the North Pole, they refer to as the Northern Lights (aurora borealis), and when observed near the South Pole, they are known as the Southern Lights (aurora australis).
In summary, the formation of auroras involves the interaction between Earth’s magnetic field, solar wind, and the atmosphere. Charged particles enter Earth’s atmosphere and collide with it, resulting in the emission of visible light and the creation of the beautiful aurora phenomenon.
The colors on the keycaps represent the auroras, while the healing comes from the black keyboard casing that symbolizes the night sky. We have incorporated shades of purple, teal, and icy blue to depict the enchanting and vibrant nature of the auroras.
Hidden Star Map
The scattered stars on the keycaps are not randomly arranged but represent a star map of the northern hemisphere’s visible sky. They depict the constellations of Pegasus, Orion, Taurus, Ursa Major, Gemini, and Cassiopeia.
The inspiration for the minimalist wave pattern design comes from the graceful movements of the auroras dancing in the sky.
The Mudflat team has meticulously designed a custom font exclusively for Aurora.
The pattern design on the spacebar showcases a dreamlike scene, evoking a sense of familiarity yet appearing as an otherworldly illusion.
Aurora is a meticulously designed theme keyboard crafted specifically for the people of the Nordic region. It embodies the dedication and hard work of the Mudflat team while also featuring top-notch craftsmanship from Varmilo. It is an exceptionally well-crafted mechanical keyboard.
