Inside the Hermes RGB
Less than a dozen screws hold the frame together, and once removed, we can see the two halves of the frame. The upper section allows for all the keys to pass through, and offers the wrist rest, while the lower section is ribbed to help support the steel plate that rides on top of them.
Picking a random spot on the PCB, we see here that the soldering is done well, and the residue was removed after this process. The PCB is flat in texture, and is what you see around the switches; that is not flux.
Without much to go off of online, we see only that the 32-bit ARM processor of choice is this IC. It shows the model number HSAK3201, but with nothing to follow, not even a manufacturer of this chip, it is hard to say for sure what sort of specifications it has.
Under a few of the key caps, we indeed find blue switches, of the Kailh variety. We can also see that with the larger keys, the torsion bars are fully exposed, and can make key cap removal a bit more delicate.
The caps are molded in white plastic, which allows the LED lighting to pass through them. Their caps are then painted black, leaving the various legends clear, which now show as white.
One of the many options for LED lighting is the Wave mode. Using this currently, we can see the whole spectrum of lighting the Hermes is capable of. Keep in mind, this is only one of many modes, and of course, the whole thing can be made to show one solid color as well.
