Adesso Inc has announced the release of its AKB-636UB mechanical keyboard that offers a truly unique design. The desktop mechanical typewriter keyboard is aimed at users that love efficiency with a “retro” design.
For increased productivity, the Adesso AKB-636UB features silver colored mechanical keys. With N-key Rollover, you can press up to 6 keys at the same time. Providing quick access to all your media player tolls are multi-functional hotkeys on the top. The mechanical keys used on the AKB-636UB are claimed to handle up to 50 million keystrokes and deliver tactile feedback with 45-50g of actuation force. If you are a gamer however, you should stay away from the AKB-636UB as it hasn’t been designed for the needs of a gamer.
The keyboard is spill-proof, just as you would expect from a modern mechanical keyboard. You can also adjust the height of the keyboard using the adjustable keyboard feet. Adesso is using Kahil Blue switches on the AKB-636UB, which are mainly used in cheaper mechanical keyboards. The keyboard has been priced at $99.99 and can now be purchased from the Adesso website.
