Glorious drops first exclusive KeyCapsule keycaps set

Recently we ran an article about Gaming peripheral gear company Glorious and its new monthly keycap program, KeyCapsules aimed at gamers who wanted to get their hands on top-quality, limited-edition keycaps for their gaming keyboards.

As part of our continuing feature to create the ultimate unique game room, there is no easier way that changing up the look of your board with something cool that virtually nobody else on the planet has so with exclusive keycaps generally being in the domain of serious collectors with deep pockets, KeyCapsules definitely piqued our interest.

Today is the first Tuesday of the month and Glorious has announced that the first set of limited-run keycaps is the rather stunning GPBT Sketch which features blank tops with the key legends printed on the side. Colored accent keys are provided for WASD and arrow keys that allow backlighting to nicely glow through the cap.

Glorious describes Sketch as “A signature design where art meets gaming, GPBT Sketch is the first in the KeyCapsules series. With only 1,000 sets crafted, it’s available first-come, first-served starting on May 7. Doodling, sketching and scribbling are fundamental acts of creativity. Inspired by that love, GPBT Sketch features bold colors and an illustrative vibe. The 138-key set is compatible with most keyboards, including Mac.

“With the KeyCapsules launch, we’re not just releasing keycaps, we’re inviting gamers to join us on a journey of discovery and personal expression. Each set is a
canvas for individuality, designed to inspire and elevate the gaming experience” said Pat Wachendorf, CEO, of Glorious.
