Does this lightning bolt make my escape key faster?

A company in the US has created sets of custom keyboard keys that will give your rig just that extra smidgen of panache.

Looking to make your boring old keyboard as debonair as you? TechKeys has the solution. It offers a range of swanky keys that can be used on any mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX switches.

Mechanical keyboards have an individual switch for each key, and they feel crisper and act more responsively than the more common dome-switch keyboard, which feels mushy and sluggish in comparison. And, of course, the other benefit of mechanical keyboards is that the keys can be interchanged freely between boards.

The range isn't huge, as yet, but we do like the billiard key set, and the blank greens look like they have a whole range of possibilities if you're the type of person who likes to get fancy — we immediately thought of spare Warhammer decals and Citadel paints.

The best part is that TechKeys does, indeed, ship internationally.
