AUSTIN, TEXAS – A standard Windows keyboard has 104 keys. Think about how often you use all of them, especially if you use your PC primarily for gaming, or producing and consuming music or videos. Even the finest keyboard has a lot of wasted space, which is why Trickey, a new Kickstarter campaign, offers a fully customizable keyboard with as few or as many keys as you want.

I went hands-on with Trickey at SXSW 2015, and while it’s not the first customizable keyboard on the market, it’s easily one of the most granular. The project bills itself as a “building-blocks-style” keyboard, and the name fits. You can place keys anywhere you like on a grid and swap them out at-will.
