The ALT Gets a Cyberpunk Twist

Missed out on MiTo’s futuristic cyberpunk keycap set, GMK Laser? Looking for a sleek, compact keyboard with all the bells and whistles you could ever need? How about both. This version of the Massdrop ALT mechanical keyboard is just like the original, only now it’s decked out in a digital ‘80s look. This time around, you’ll get to choose a case color, too: Go for Laser Dusk or Laser Dawn to match the caps. As for the keyboard, the ALT allows you to swap switches whenever you want with no soldering required. It’s also fully programmable via QMK, meaning you can assign macros or custom keybinds to every key. With dual USB-C connectors, it has the latest connections. What’s more, it’s got customizable RGB backlighting and underlighting. Set it to a single color or light it up with a rainbow wave pattern.

Note: The base price for the keyboard (which includes the case, PCB, and GMK Laser keycaps) will be $239.99 with additional price drops listed below for the Laser Keycap Kit. At checkout, you'll have your choice between a Laser Dawn and Laser Dusk case. If you don't want GMK Laser keycaps, the Barebones version will be ($139.99). You can also add a set of switches. Pricing will vary for each. See checkout options for more details.

Optimized Per-Key Lighting With Millions of Colors

The ALT features light pipes built into the switches that are optimized to deliver lots of light. You’ll also have your choice from millions of different colors for every single key. So if you want the lighting to cycle through the entire spectrum, you’ve got it; if you prefer a two-toned look to match your setup, consider it done. There’s also a built-in LED diffuser with light-blocking material to minimize hotspots found in many other keyboards. Worried about flickering? Don’t be. The backlighting displays at a super-high frame rate (100 hertz), so there's no annoying stutters.

Fully Programmable Via QMK

Customizing your keyboard is a lot of fun. That’s why the ALT features a fully programmable layout, designed for modification. Using QMK firmware, you have total control over every key. Plus, the configurator allows you to program macros and customized keymapping so you can easily fine-tune your keyboard for gaming, work, or play. It’s also outfitted with two USB type-C connectors (one on each side), allowing you to use the spare connector to transfer data and charge devices at USB 2.0 speeds.

Hefty Aluminum Frame & Hot-Swappable Switches

The ALT is made from a solid block of anodized aluminum, which is known for its toughness and ability to hold a quality surface finish. Heavy enough to stay put when you're locked into an intense FPS match or hammering out an essay, the frame also has a low profile to complement your desktop. Thanks to the built-in switch plate and hot-swappable PCB, the ALT gives you the freedom to change out your switches whenever you like. Best of all? You don’t need to solder each switch. Just pop them in and they’re ready to go.
