These ‘blurple’ Discord keyboards look cooler than they have any right to


As someone who typed on blank keycaps for years in a cheesy attempt to impress people, I know a little something about keyboards as they relate to being or not being cool. And yet, despite my experience ruminating on the fashionableness of clicky-clacky mechanical devices, I cannot decide whether or not these Discord keyboards from Kono are cool.

At a gut level, it’s hard to feel like spending $190 on a keyboard with a social media platform’s logo on it is cool. It’s like paying for the sort of swag companies give influencers for free. Or, if that’s too harsh, it’s at least like going to an NFL game with a hat that says “NFL” on it: funny when Rob Lowe did it, but probably only that one time. The only logo I want on a keyboard is the logo of the company that made it, but ideally, I’d rather see no logo at all. (Or no markings at all, at one time.)
