While their software for programming it only officially supports Windows and Android, the 8BitDo Retro Mechanical Keyboard sure does look awesome. I need this. Supporting connecting up via USB, Wireless 2.4G and Bluetooth it has a range of options for whatever way you wish to use it.
- 87 keys
- Kailh Box White Switches V2
- Hot-swappable PCB
- Support n-key rollover
- Dye-sublimation PBT keycaps with MDA-like height
- Programmable buttons
- Fast-mapping on programmable buttons (no software needed)
- Top mount style
Hopefully at some point someone will be able to provide proper drivers for it on Linux, just like we've seen for various other vendors (like OpenRazer and ckb-next) to get the full use out of it. I always love the build quality of 8BitDo too and their 8BitDo Ultimate Controller is my current favourite gamepad.
It will actually be available in two different versions with the "N" and "Fami" editions:
Plus there's also those two huge red buttons you can connect up with it but they're an extra.
