New 25-key Gaming Keyboard “The Shrimp” Announced

A new, ergonomic gaming keyboard has been announced from Nordic Game Supply called The Shrimp. The Shrimp is a 25-key keyboard that was designed with comfort and visual appeal in mind. As such, they’ve created a keyboard that is as collectible as it appears to be useful.

“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.”

“Now we haven’t re-invented a wheel here either. The Shrimp is also a standard keyboard, albeit its tiny size. There have also been keypad sized gaming devices before the Shrimp but they have either been non-standard layout, made to adapt keyboard & mouse on gaming consoles or have had some off-putting futuristic “space-captain” designs. I believe we have made a design that is both comfortable to use and looks great on your desktop. “ concludes Kari Viljanen.

The Shrimp includes the following Technical Details:

  • Ultra Compact mechanical gaming keyboard

  • 25-key GLOBAL layout with super stunning “oversized” lettering

  • Gateron™ G Pro mechanical switches

  • Cherry™ profile (heights & shaping) keycaps

  •  RGB illumination with a bunch of cool effects

  • Padded and textured magnetic wrist rest

  • Cool gadgety knobs

  • Multimedia controls

  • Fn-layer (dual function keys)

  • USB-C connector

  • Compatibility: Desktop PC and gaming laptops, PS4/PS5 (standard HID compliant USB device)

The exact release date and price for The Shrimp is TBA. Stay tuned for more.
