The Shrimp is amazing for traveling. When normally traveling with a gaming laptop, you most likely carry a gaming mouse with you. You would probably not carry your keyboard along as it’s way too big. You probably also don’t much enjoy using the keyboard on your laptop. Tiny keys without proper feedback, hand positioned almost touching the laptop screen, yikes! The Shrimp is definitely something that would fit your backpack.
The thing about Shrimp is that you don’t need to learn or accustom yourself to anything new. The Shrimp has a standard layout meaning the keys are exactly the same and in the same locations as on a standard keyboard.
Not only does the Shrimp look good, it feels great as well. Brand new Gateron G Pro switches plated on an elegant Nordic design body which has a bunch of sound dampening magic built inside it. Also there is a detachable magnetically connected wrist rest with soft padding and textured surface. A king’s rest for your wrist.
On keycaps we would like you to notice the classic Cherry profile which is a bit lower (and in our opinion) better shaped than on most industry keyboards using the OEM profile. The keycaps feature an “oversized” lettering which carries more light…which brings us to RGB illumination. Yes, the Shrimp has! And it has plenty of cool effects as well.
The 25-key layout on the Shrimp is a solid amount of keys for any kind of casual gaming. You can use as is or map the keys in-game as you wish. No software or tricks are required. Casual gaming is the best kind of gaming. You game and feel casual while gaming. Just like wearing casual clothes, they are the most comfortable ones. In competitive gaming the gamers sweat a lot. How is that fun? If you feel competitive you can give the Shrimp a go too!
“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.” says Kari Viljanen, product developer of the Shrimp. “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 .”
