The inception of Pinstack is a tale of personal resilience, shared passion, and constant innovation. It all started with Chris, the founder, who encountered several wrist injuries related to extended periods of keyboard usage back in 2005. At that time, he was deeply involved in the e-commerce business, selling, and manufacturing monitor arms.
As his wrist injuries exacerbated, limiting his productivity substantially, Chris decided to find a solution. That's when he came across mechanical keyboards and their potential benefits for better comfort and increased efficiency during long hours of work or play. Intrigued and hopeful, he ventured deeper into the realm of mechanical keyboards, buying and trying out different models. Each keyboard, although useful, lacked something. This led Chris to customize his keyboard, incorporating beneficial features of various keyboards he had tried earlier.
It was during this experimentation phase that Chris found himself connecting deeply with the mechanical keyboard community. Noticing the shared concerns among users, he co-founded Cloud Nine Ergo keyboard
, leveraging his personal experiences and valuable input from the community. This keyboard was aimed at providing a perfect balance between comfort, functionality and design based on user feedback and requirements.
