In 2017, sitting in front of a computer screen isn’t as fun and exciting as it used to be anymore, mainly because computers are now used more for work and school purposes, both of which are pretty boring. But there are ways to make it fun, either by getting loads of office gadgets to fill out your cubicle or... get a keyboard from the 19th century. For this article I will focus solely on keyboards that will wake up your inner steampunker: The steampunk-styled keyboards of your Victorian era dreams. From Datamancer.
Keyboards after all, are peripherals partially modeled after those good old typewriters – yes, what a surprise! As time goes on more and more of them try on designs that distance their images from those of their “predecessors” – they have become more slick, more futuristic, more minimalistic than ever to bait Apple fans into buying (I kid, I kid).
To counter that, some companies decided that they should produce products for the customers who turned the other cheeks, because they seemed so pitiful not owning the latest trendy things on the electronics market and not to mention the potential for marketing was quite large. So how does one counter the trend of smartphone-like keyboards? You go retro the hell out of it. Came Datamancer with their fantastic steampunk custom designs.
