Whether it’s the satisfying tactile sensation, the responsiveness of the keys, or simply the ability to add a personal touch, people are getting more interested in mechanical keyboards. There are available modern and sleek designs such as the ones offered by AZIO or Lofree, but if you want a personalized touch to it, you’d want to have a mechanical keyboard.
One option is MelGeek‘s latest keyboard, Pixel. As the name suggests, the keyboard has a pixel look, but that’s not its main selling point. The keyboard allows users to customize it however way they want to with bricks.
Customize with bricks
The Pixel includes a set of bricks or LEGO-like pieces you can put on your keyboard. Since the front and back sides of the Pixel keyboard can be fully customizable, you can use the bricks however you want to design the keyboard. You can create patterns on the keyboard, color it with bricks, and even put your name on it. As with the rest of the keyboard, the keycaps can also be customized with your choice of brick. The possibilities are endless.
Pixel’s keys are also hot-swappable so that you can customize your keys. MelGeek uses a premium gasket mount as well as Silicone and Poron materials to make your typing experience comfortable. Apart from that, it offers users two switch types from Kailh. It also has a dedicated area for the dongle on the right side of the keyboard so you won’t lose it.
The Pixel keyboard is available in three designs: Palette, Christian, and Canvas. Palette has blue, red, and yellow as its main colors. Christian is closer to a more classic design with its gray and neutral tones. Meanwhile, Canvas plays around with a blank canvas for the colors of the keys’ letters and numbers to pop.
At the moment, the Kickstarter campaign for Pixel has reached more than $640,000. With 29 days before the campaign closes, interested users can still get one starting at $219.
