Cyberboard a Mechanical Keyboard Inspired by Cybertruck?

Angry Miao is a new kid on the block that is trying to make it in the world of  keyboards. Their first keyboard in this busy market is the CYBERBOARD -- a mechanical keyboard inspired by Elon Musk's Cybertruck. 

The keyboard comes with a chunky aluminum housing that is indeed reminiscent of the Cybertruck's angular shape, with the long side housing the keyboard and the 'hood' so to speak, packing a huge 5 x 40 LED array that you can customize entirely to your liking.

As far as typing goes, the keyboard comes with a 75% layout, true mechanical switches, a hot-swap PCB for changing your keyboard's mechanical switches as you like, and a 3.4-mm thick silicone damper to quiet down loud typists such as myself. 

"We believe that innovative products provide not only practical function, but also cultural and emotional values. We want to bring our radical design and concept to the community - that is, the world's first custom keyboard with a DIY LED panel," said Nan Li, Angry Miao's Founder. "In the process of refining the CYBERBOARD, we have constantly pursued the ultimate experience for keyboard enthusiasts, in order to bring a different product to the world while offering exceptional DIY fun and making our mark in the world. However, this is just a beginning. We will launch far more exciting products and a totally new brand line on Aug 26."

But the Cyberboard won't be cheap, even compared to today's best gaming keyboards: currently, the most affordable version costs $410, and that's with a 40% 'early bird' discount on Indiegogo. A total of 1000 units will be produced in this batch, so if you want one, either jump now or get ready for the long wait for batch two, if that is to happen. Color options are Cyber Grey, Industrial Yellow, Purple Haze, Vapor White, and Jungle Green. The first batch are expected to ship in October 2020, hopefully in time for you to use the CYBERBOARD with Cyberpunk 2077 due in November.

Angry Miao promises that a new product line with more cool products is coming at the end of the month... I wonder how comfortable a CYBERMOUSE will be.

    I think the lcd panel is on top and angled away from the user. What would be the point? The "nice" and "22:00" would be upside-down?

    This company is so lost. Nobody is paying a huge premium for these goofy LED keyboards. The very young kids are into this type of thing but the cost and design are going to be way to high. This was just a bad idea.

    Have you seen the types of builds people are doing these days, spending hundreds of extra dollars just on aesthetics?
    These keyboards will sell out their entire limited production run by the end of the year, cashing in on a craze is nothing new.

    It is probably only good for sending scrolling messages to distract your opponents during LAN Parties, "I slept with your mother last night". If they wanted something for the user, they would have put the display in a fold-out wrist rest.

    I have my doubts. This has a young look at me LED feel with a kind of old retro styling. That mix seems a little odd.
