If you’ve never had the pleasure of cranking out some emails, a TPS report or, say, the latest and greatest Cool Material post on a mechanical keyboard, you don’t know what you’re missing. There’s just something supremely satisfying about the clickety clack of a mechanical keyboard that makes you feel incredibly productive while simultaneously pissing off all your co-workers (which just makes it better). Until now, the only good options for full mechanical keyboards were big and bulky, but that changes with Keychron’s slim and minimal mechanical keyboard. After successfully being funded on Kickstarter, the minimal mechanical Keychron is now available for purchase in a number of styles and layouts. There are Mac and Windows versions with dedicated layouts and Siri / Cortana keys, along with 87 or 104 key versions (basically with or without the Num Pad on the right) that all feature extra-loud blue switches attached to the aluminum body. What’s more, there are built in RGB lights with four adjustable levels and more than 18 different color effects so you can customize your workspace accordingly. If you don’t want to work wired, it can also be attached to up to 3 different Bluetooth devices simultaneously, so you can work on just about every device under the sun.


In short, this is a key-shaped multi-tool built of stainless steel that has all of the tools you need for everyday repairs for everything from light switches to bicycles. Bit driver. Protractor. Metric and Imperial rulers. Imperial and Metric closed wrenches. Bottle Opener. File. Scoring tip. Wire bender and bike spoke key. Wire stripper. Screwdrivers. 1/4 hex driver pocket. So you might need to throw in some hex bits for specific projects, but otherwise, the Geekey has you covered for almost all of your everyday repair needs. As if that wasn’t enough, the hexogon can also serve as a smoking bowl, with the shaft of the key hollowed out to serve as a pipe.
