nerdytec, the creative minds behind the well-known Couchmaster, enrich their range with a special input tool: CYKEY – An RGB mechanical keyboard equipped with QMK/VIA technology and the latest Gateron switches.
The advanced keyboard is designed for both avid gamers and professional users. It redefines performance, adaptability and ergonomics. Thanks to first-class craftsmanship and simple nerdytec design, every setup is enhanced. CYKEY’s specialty is its compact 75% design, which is functionally complete and requires minimal space on a sofa master or desk. The keycaps highlight more than 20 different RGB lighting modes with high-quality lighting in characteristic nerdytec style and thus enhance the optical effect of the keyboard.
In terms of performance and customization options, CYKEY offers mechanical keys that provide excellent haptic feedback for accurate and efficient typing. With the latest G Pro 3.0 Yellow switch from Gateron, nerdytec relies on longevity and reliability. The hot-swap feature makes it easy to replace the switches, which improves the customization and maintenance of the keyboard, and makes it easy to change the extra keys included in the package.
Shortcut keys work smoothly with both Windows and macOS. A simple press of a button activates important functions such as audio control, search features or quickly locking the computer. Built-in QMK/VIA technology allows extensive customization options for RGB lighting and key mapping directly in the browser, without additional software installation, with only one-time initialization of the keyboard on the VIA website. This open source integration allows keyboard enthusiasts and developers to create custom keyboard firmware.
CYKEY offers more control options thanks to innovative multi-control knobs They can be adjusted individually, for example to adjust the brightness of the screen, enlarge it or change the desktop. Multi-Control Knob 1 is located at the top right of the keyboard, while the second knob can be flexibly placed in one of three positions. A highlight for everyone who likes to be in control!
“With the introduction of CYKEY we mark another milestone in nerdytec’s history. This is not only an extension of our product range, but also shows the development of our market. More models with different switches, alternate keycap sets and other features are planned. We want to win the hearts of tech enthusiasts, gamers and professionals, hence the choice of open source firmware. Our goal is to expand the nerdytec product range and become the top brand for everyone who values innovation, quality and a special user experience. Couchmaster and CYKEY are just the beginning,” said nerdytec CEO Chris Mut
