Copied, Pasted, Improved

Last year, we brought Stack Overflow’s iconic April Fool’s joke to life. Advertised as the new (and only) way to copy and paste on the site, it was an ultra-compact macropad called The Key. The punchline-turned product was a huge hit, selling over 10K units and earning a nearly 5-star average review. Now, we’re back with a second act: The Key V2. The same size as its portable predecessor, this punchline-turned-product has a few notable changes—including an acrylic case to accent its two built-in RGB LEDs. Plus, we made it hot-swappable, so you can easily change out the switches for a truly custom experience. And just like the original, a portion of all proceeds from The Key V2 will go to the data-driven social startup digitalundivided.

Hot-Swappable, Acrylic, LED-Equipped

Sometimes, a joke is even better the second time around. With The Key V2, that joke even has new, community-requested material. When it comes to features, this tiny macropad is a serious sequel. Like the original, it’s incredibly portable and fully programmable. It’s also equipped with custom XDA profile keycaps sporting the Stack Overflow logo. Unlike the original, The Key V2 is hot-swappable—which means you can change out its switches without soldering. Another new addition is a V2-exclusive acrylic case, which elegantly accents onboard RGB LEDs previously hidden within V1’s black case. Stylish, performance tested, and about as space-efficient as it gets, The Key V2 is one macropad fit for any setup.

Limited Quantities to Benefit a Great Cause

Since its inception, Stack Overflow has stood by a singular cause: empowering the world to develop technology through collective knowledge. In line with this mission, The Key V2 will benefit an equally great cause. A portion of proceeds from every sale will go to digitalundivided: a social startup with 501 (c) 3 status that merges data and heart to develop innovative initiatives that catalyze economic growth in Black and Latino communities. If that isn’t reason enough to add the The Key to your arsenal, our limited quantities might be. Don’t wait to unlock your desktop’s true potential.

29 dollars for 3 keys? I could buy a whole keyboard for that price, why does everything have to be so expensive nowadays. And besides that, the shipping will also be 15 dollars. 44 dollars for 3 keys, what the heck.

Consider the amounts of code that you will be able to copy and paste with it! That's worth. No doubt.Read More
