There is no shortage of choice when it comes to gaming keyboards. Since the spawn of mechanical keyboards, there have been many variations, most recently with the addition of RGB practically everything. Now, the Dygma Raise keyboard looks to offer those two similar aspects while creating something more ergonomically pleasing.
A normal keyboard forces the wrists to bend towards the pinky side of our hand. Rotating Raise’s halves lets you keep your wrists at a neutral angle, decreasing pressure and strain over time. You can also adjust the width between the two halves, placing them in front of your shoulders to reduce internal shoulder rotation. Funded in its first 4 days on Kickstarter, Early backers will get a 30% discount (€165) while supplies last.
Dygma’s founder and CEO is Luis “Deilor” Sevilla, former head coach of the Fnatic League of Legends team. The goal in designing the Raise was to alleviate the neck, back, and other bodily harm that playing for long periods of time can cause.
The Dygma Raise is currently has a Kickstarter campaign. At this point, the keyboard has already exceeded its goal. However, if you’re looking to back the device for specific tiers, you can expect the first shipment to be sent out at a tentative July 2018 date.
