Now, we’re just going to hit the bullet points:

- Cool gadgety knobs
- Multimedia controls
- Fn-layer (dual function keys)
- USB-C connector
- Compatibility: Desktop PC and gaming laptops, PS4/PS5 (standard HID compliant USB device)
And we’ll conclude with words directly from the product developer.
“We wanted to brush off some dust from a “gaming keyboard”. There hasn’t been much evolution happening on keyboards from the computer terminal keyboards of the 1970’s. The “gaming keyboard” of today seems to be mainly a standard keyboard made in black color with an addition of RGB lighting and maybe a couple extra buttons too far away from easy reach.”
“Having them be mechanical is not a new innovation of the last decade, it’s actually going back in time and bringing back the superior technology of old. All keyboards used to be mechanical and later became membrane to cut costs when the home PC market was booming.”
“Now we haven’t re-invented a wheel here either. The Shrimp is also a standard keyboard, albeit its tiny size. There have also been keypad sized gaming devices before the Shrimp™ but they have either been non-standard layout, made to adapt keyboard & mouse on gaming consoles or have had some off-putting futuristic “space-captain” designs. I believe we have made a design that is both comfortable to use and looks great on your desktop.“Kari Vijianen
