NGS launches shrimp gaming keyboard

Give yourself the freedom to position your hands however you want with this damn cute spacesaver. The Shrimp can enable good ergonomics. No more twisting your keyboard, hands and shoulders at awkward angles to find a viable playing position. The Shrimp can be of service to you both at home and when traveling. At home, he patiently waits for you to start playing.

The Shrimp is great for traveling. When you normally travel with a gaming laptop, you probably carry a gaming mouse with you. You probably wouldn’t carry your keyboard around because it’s way too big. You probably don’t like the keyboard on your laptop either. Small keys with no good feedback, hand almost touching the laptop screen, yikes! The Shrimp is definitely something that would fit in your backpack.

The thing with Shrimp is that you don’t have to learn anything new or get used to it. The Shrimp has a standard layout, which means that the keys are exactly the same and in the same locations as on a standard keyboard.

The Prawns don’t just look good, they feel great too. Brand new Gateron G Pro switches clad on an elegant Scandinavian design housing that has a whole lot of sound dampening magic built into it. There is also a detachable, magnetically connectable wrist rest with soft padding and a textured surface. A royal rest for your wrist.

On keycaps, we want you to notice the classic Cherry profile which is a bit lower (and in our opinion) better shaped than on most industrial keyboards that use the OEM profile. The keycaps have “oversized” lettering that carries more light…which brings us to RGB lighting. Yes, the Shrimp has! And it also has plenty of cool effects.

The 25-key layout on the Shrimp is a solid number of keys for any kind of casual gaming. You can use the keys in-game as they are or map them however you like. No software or tricks are required. Casual gaming is the best form of gaming. You game and feel casual while gaming. Like wearing casual clothes, they are the most comfortable. In competitive gaming, the gamers sweat a lot. How’s that fun? If you’re feeling competitive, you can try the shrimp too!

“We wanted to wipe some dust off a “gaming keyboard”. There hasn’t been much evolution on keyboards from the computer terminal keyboards of the 1970s. Today’s “gaming keyboard” mostly looks like a standard black color keyboard with an addition of RGB lighting and maybe a few extra buttons too far away from easy reach.” says Kari Viljanen, product developer at The Shrimp. “The fact that they are mechanical is not a new innovation from the last ten years, it is actually going back in time and bringing back the superior technology of yesteryear. All keyboards used to be mechanical and later became membrane to cut costs when the home PC market was booming.”
