Is that cardboard in the relegendable key in the extension kit? It seems like the theme this year is cardboard, I've seen at least 3 cardboard ICs this morning already!

10/10 would buy if this becomes a reality, and probably put it on my keyboard at work just to mess with my coworkers  :cool:

"...can't touch type!"

It's the adult meme set that's funny if you know, yet doesn't look like rainbow vomit on your keyboard to be funny.

Yes, obviously. This set is only for the most swag typers out there and anyone who uses it automatically hits 150 wpm (may or may not be true).
