The appeal of a mechanical keyboard is not lost on us given that so much of our time is spent poking keys. Then if you go and make it an all-metal, CNC-machined, highly customizable keyboard, you’ve just about guaranteed we’re paying attention. The Keychron Q8 QMK Mechanical Keyboard also goes beyond the casual, aesthetic reasons you might want a mechanical keyboard. It’s constructed to maintain the stereotypical tactility of a mechanical with a few features that should appeal to developers. There’s a sound dampening double gasket system so it doesn’t sound like your code is being written by a blacksmith. Latency has been reduced to almost nonexistence and macros mean the keyboard is programmable to the point down to individual keys. It even comes with a programmable knob.
