What you see here is a mechanical keyboard with all its keys replaced with custom food keycaps. Questionable real world use aside, I got to say it looks fantastic. This food keycaps filled keyboard, nickname ‘smorgasbord‘, was created by Tiny, an artisan keycaps maker.
The creativity is strong with this keyboard. It is not just fun and not just about cutesy miniature food; this keyboard full of food keycaps is also a pop culture thing and very hunger-inducing.
You can find stuff like Lotus Biscoff for the ‘lotus’ key, Boba Tea for ’T’, donut for D, cheeseburger for ‘B’, BLT sandwich for ALT key, and a super long Subway sandwich for the longest key, the SPACE bar – just to name a few.
Basically, these are food we are all too familiar with and writing about it makes me have cravings that will threaten my cholesterol and weight.
As far as practical use, Tiny demonstrated that her Keyboard with Custom Food Keycaps is actually usable. But obviously, it is not the most practical given that the uneven nature of the keys and also the lack of letters, numbers and symbols.
If you are good at touch typing, you should be good. Well, not that you can buy this.
