The IDOBAO ID80 Crystal Gasket Barenones Keyboard is transparent in all the right ways. Its see-through acrylic case highlights onboard RGB lighting, and its PCB and premium components provide you with a solid foundation to create any kind of typing experience you’d want. The gasket-mounted build gives you a subtle and soft feel with each keystroke—and you can choose between a polycarbonate or brass top plate to suit your preference. While this kit doesn’t come with keys or switches, it’s hot-swappable with a 5-pin Kalih setup so it can easily accommodate a wide range of components. Plus, it’s QMK/VIA programmable, connects using USB-C, and gives you an ultra-typable 6 degrees of tilt.
If you’re like many in the Mech Keys community, your keyboard is your baby. Few manufacturers understand this better than IDOBAO, which takes its name from the Chinese phrase “ai duo bao”—or “make many babies that you love.” Bridging both sides of the globe, the company also stresses that the name can be translated to “I do bao”—“we do treasure.” With IDOBAO’s impressive quality standards across its extensive product line, it’s clear that both translations apply. From popular keyboards and kits like the ID75 and ID80, to beautiful keycap sets, accessories, and more, IDOBAO has earned its reputation by putting user experience first. Among the many manufacturers that don’t always deliver, that commitment—and consistency—is a true treasure.
