From crazy color schemes, funky moulded key caps to custom wrist rests and lighting, there’s just no limit to their imagination when it comes to making their mechanical keyboards unique and striking. Some like to customize to fit the niche of a particular game or brand, where as others customize for functionality, adding symbolic keys or ergonomic features to make typing easier.
