Designed by Etsy seller Keycapper to replicate the look of NVIDIA’s high-performance GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card, this is a metal keycap designed to fit the right shift key of keyboards with Cherry MX switches. It costs $50 and includes a fan you can spin with a finger, making it an integrated keyboard fidget spinner!
You’ll have to be quite a fan of the GeForce RTX 3080 to actually spend $50 on a keycap that looks just like it. Of course, if you’re spending $800+ on a graphics card (if you can even find one), what’s another $50 for a matching keycap? Besides, that’s a small price to pay to be the envy of everybody who even knows what an RTX 3080 is (I thought it was a new Acura SUV).
My right shift key doesn’t even have a keycap, I just know where it is because it’s the button that’s missing a keycap right below the return key that’s also missing its keycap. None of the number keys work at all, so I have to copy and paste them from Notepad whenever I need to use them, which I avoid. Is it time for a new keyboard? Not yet, but I feel like I am getting close.
