Nemeio’s new gen keyboard has e-paper displays for each mechanical key and lets you customize each one
Imagine not only being able to switch keyboard typing layouts but also being able to customise each and every separate key to switch to a meaningful layout for your favourite games. This is way better than just changing the colours of keys like most gaming keyboards do.
That said it is early days for this keyboard and I hear the key travel may not be ideal yet and the price is expected to be over $300. So hopefully this keyboard kickstarts better innovation to come and a lower price point (although I expect separate displays like this is not going to be cheap).
Nemeio uses a backlit e-paper display, ideal for preventing eye fatigue day and night. You can control the light intensity, magnify the letters of your keys as you wish. It will be possible to interchange each letter, import custom characters and use characters from any language.
It is a Bluetooth keyboard but sounds like the USB-C port not only charges it but can connect it to the computer. I hope it can connect too as I find Bluetooth can be finicky and I've gone back to a cabled keyboard and mouse myself.
It will be interesting to see what actual reviewers have to say after testing this keyboard. Due to the nature of the keys (small e-ink displays) I'm just wondering if the key travel is going to be OK in the early versions. I love the idea though.
