Colour Scheme - Starry Sky and Imaginations

Lunar Phases Design
The Patterns on the function keys is another innovation - printing light-colour lunar phases on dark-colour keycaps depicting the everchanging lunar phases. To implicitly illustrate the alluring moonlight, the keycaps adopt a 'dark background colour with light printing' design. As the backlight is off the moon fades out, as the backlight is on the moon shows up.
