Nordic Game Supply announced The Shrimpultra-compact mechanical keyboard from gamin made for those who do not want too much space occupied in their gaming station, as well as being easily transportable.
Below you can read the complete press release with the various technical characteristics:
Let yourself be free to position your hands as you wish with this cute space saver. The Shrimp allows for correct ergonomics. You no longer have to twist the keyboard, hands and shoulders in awkward angles to find a pleasant playing position. Shrimp can be used both at home and on the go. At home he will wait patiently for when you play the game.
Shrimp is great for traveling. When traveling with a gaming laptop, you are likely to carry a gaming mouse with you. You will probably not take the keyboard with you because it is too big. Also, you probably don’t like using your laptop keyboard very much. Tiny keys without adequate feedback, hand positioned almost in contact with the laptop screen… Damn! Shrimp ™ is definitely a product that fits your backpack.
The advantage of Shrimp is that you don’t need to learn or get used to anything new. Shrimp has a standard layoutwhich means that the keys are exactly the same and in the same positions as on a standard keyboard.
The Shrimp not only looks great, but feels great too. The brand new switches Gateron G Pro they are plated on an elegant Nordic design body that contains a number of sound attenuating magic. Additionally, there is a wrist rest detachable and magnetically attachable with a soft padding and a textured surface. A king’s rest for your wrist.
As for the frets, we would like to point out the classic profile Cherry which is slightly lower (and in our opinion) better shaped than most keyboards in the industry that use the profile OEM. The keys are characterized by an “oversize” lettering that carries more light … which brings us to RGB lighting. Yes, the Shrimp has it! And she also has a lot of cool effects.
The 25-key layout of the Shrimp is a sufficient number of keys for any kind of casual game. You can use the keys as they are or map them in the game as you wish. No software or tricks are needed. Casual play is the best type of game. It plays and feels casual while playing. Just like wearing casual clothes, they are the most comfortable. In competitive play, players sweat a lot. How can that be fun? If you are feeling competitive, you can try the Shrimp too!
Kari Viljanendeveloper of The Shrimp, says:
“We wanted to get some dust off a “gaming keyboard”. There hasn’t been a big evolution in keyboards compared to the computer terminals of the 1970s. Today’s “gaming keyboard” seems to be an evolution. Today’s “gaming keyboard” appears to be primarily a standard black keyboard with the addition of RGB lighting and perhaps a couple of extra keys too far out of easy reach. The fact that they are mechanical is not an innovation of the last decade, but a step back in time that brings back the superior technology of the past. All keyboards were mechanical and later became membrane to cut costs when the home PC market was booming“.
concludes Kari Viljanen with:
“Again, we have not reinvented the wheel. The Shrimp is also a standard keyboard, albeit a small one. Before Shrimp, gaming devices were made with standard-sized keyboards, but with non-standard layouts, made to fit keyboard and mouse on game consoles or with futuristic “space captain” designs. I think we have created a design that is comfortable to use and that looks great on the desk “
