The Matias Tactile Pro is a Macintosh keyboard inspired by the Apple Extended Keyboard and other full-sized Macintosh keyboards with Alps switches from the '90s.

Design

The exterior design is inspired by late 90s Apple iMac and PowerMac G3 keyboards, with transparent plastic around a white interior and with USB ports on the left and right sides at the rear. There have also been grey-metallic/black versions (see variations below).
