2. For such poker layout Poker 2, Pok3r kind of 60% keyboard, custom is messy, because they are without driver software, only have hardware programming.
3. If you want to custom your personality keyboard, such as GH60, then customization is a very cumbersome work.
Product original idea 2: from poker mechanical keyboard
1. 60% keyboard, portable
2. On aftermarket, replacing the poker layout mechanical keyboard’s keycaps is easy.
poker 1 keyboard: can’t be programmable.
poker 2 keyboard: Without full RGB backlit. Its programmability is weak.
POK3R / poker 3 keyboard:
1. The programmability is higher than poker 2, but because of its hardware programming, it is much cumbersome to program and control RGB LED light effects.
2. Only has metal case and Cherry MX switches edition. It’s more expensive, and users have no more choices for different mechanical switches, custom kits, PCB and other parts.
3. On the present market, all poker keyboard without hot swappable switches, switches customization is not easy.
