The Shrimp gaming keyboard launched: Features, pricing and more

The Shrimp

Nordic Game Supply has launched The Shrimp, a new portable mechanical gaming keyboard that can be used with a gaming laptop, especially when travelling. An alternative to a large keyboard is the ultra-compact mechanical gaming keyboard called The Shrimp. The Shrimp was inspired by NGS’s desire to provide alternatives to the conventional standard-looking keyboards.

The Shrimp gaming keyboard: Features

The Shrimp gaming keyboard has a standard layout that is similar to a traditional keyboard in terms of layout and keys. The 25-key keyboard can be used as-is or modified for gaming purposes. The Shrimp does not require any software or complicated installation procedures to function. It features Gateron G Pro switches as well as an elegant Nordic design body. The keyboard has sound-dampening features built in. For added comfort, there is a detachable, magnetically connectable wrist rest. The wrist rest is padded and has a textured surface.

The Shrimp’s keycaps feature large letters and improved RGB illumination. The keyboard has a traditional Cherry profile (height and shape) and is more shaped than most industry keyboards. The Shrimp features a USB-C connector and is compatible with desktop PCs, gaming laptops, and standard HID-compliant USB devices or game consoles.

Pricing and availability

Nordic Game Supply, the Shrimp’s vendor, says the keyboard will be available in markets once it has reached the highest level of development. This milestone has not been assigned a specific date by the company. Pricing and other information are also unavailable at this time.

Kari Viljanen, product developer of the Shrimp gaming keyboard, commented on the keyboard:

We wanted to brush off some dust from a “gaming keyboard”. There hasn’t been much evolution happening on keyboards from the computer terminal keyboards of the 1970’s. The “gaming keyboard” of today seems to be mainly a standard keyboard made in black color with an addition of RGB lighting and maybe a couple extra buttons too far away from easy reach. Having them be mechanical is not a new innovation of the last decade, it’s actually going back in time and bringing back the superior technology of old. All keyboards used to be mechanical and later became membrane to cut costs when the home PC market was booming.

Now we haven’t re-invented a wheel here either. The Shrimp is also a standard keyboard, albeit its tiny size. There have also been keypad sized gaming devices before the Shrimp but they have either been non-standard layout, made to adapt keyboard & mouse on gaming consoles or have had some off-putting futuristic “space-captain” designs. I believe we have made a design that is both comfortable to use and looks great on your desktop.
