INTRO: After much anticipation, Elon Musk (quite dramatically) unveiled the futuristic electric pick-up truck, the Cybertruck back in late 2019 by breaking its window with a metal ball. After revealing, the weird design of the truck kinda became a trend within the market. We have seen companies make a $15,000 Cybertruck-inspired “Cyberphone” and have also seen a YouTuber build a “Cyberbike”. Now, there’s a Cybertruck-inspired mechanical keyboard Cyberboard that comes with an LED screen at the front.
Meet the “Cyberboard”, the world’s first LED mechanical keyboard inspired by Tesla’s upcoming “Cybertruck”. Made by a Hong Kong-based startup, AngryMiao, the keyboard has an unusual design and truly seems like the “Cybertruck” when seen from the edges.
Now, coming to the features of the keyboard, the chassis is entirely made from aluminum and it’s a 75% layout for the keys which have swappable keycaps. It has a Cybertruck-inspired design for its built and appears pretty cool apart from the very fact that it’d be a touch heavy for its size.
A Keyboard With a Custom LED Strip
However, the heft of the keyboard is sensible because it features a unique custom LED strip at the front which enables some fun DIY lighting effects. There are 200 LED light beads inside the display board and users can configure the planning of those LEDs employing a web interface. The company even installed specific chipsets for programmed lighting effects.
Limited Edition Sets Of Cyberboard
With all the cool lighting effects, the Cybertruck-inspired design, and therefore the unique display board , the keyboard looks pretty dope. However, the corporate says that it’ll only make 1000 sets for global sales. So, this makes the “Cyberboard” an edition set for the enthusiasts and collectors.
The keyboard comes in five different colors – Cyber Grey, Purple Haze, Industrial Yellow, Jungle Green, and Vapor White. And you’ll also get extra PCBs and plates to customize your “Cyberboard”.
So, if you’re a keyboard enthusiast and need to urge your hands on the “Cyberboard” when starts to ship, you’ll check them out on Indiegogo and even pre-book one for yourself for a price of three ,178 HKD (~Rs 30,679).
