Nowadays, the market is flooded with countless keyboards that offer excellent experiences, but whenever an ultra-thin one is announced, it garners my interest. Recently, a company called Vissles revealed the LP85. It's less than an inch thick and is made from machined aluminum. The keyboard also features optical switches so you can use it for gaming or typing.

Optical switches are usually found in gaming keyboards and laptops. The LP85's designer, Casey Chan, said the following about their inclusion. "Traditionally, optical switches have been used by a small handful of gaming laptops like the 2019 Razer Blade 15. However, due to its high price, users are often hesitant to give it a try." Luckily, its available for $99 on Kickstarter right now. After the campaign ends tomorrow, the price will go up to $139.

The LP85 easily beat its $12,000 goal because the company has currently raised over $159,000. If you're in the market for a compact, well-built keyboard, be sure to check out the LP85. There are still a few hundred units available. There are Mac and Windows layouts to choose from.

I've been using this keyboard for the past month for gaming and regular typing. Vissles provided me with a review unit to test out. It's withstood the dozens of hours so far without any issues. My favorite part has to be the multicolored backlights because they add a little bit of flair to the grey, anodized aluminum, and black keys.
