The Marsback M1 is the only keyboard you’ll ever need

It’s able to handle everything from gaming to writing, on multiple devices at once.

The Marsback M1 mechanical keyboard will ship in July following a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign that ends April 6.

This keyboard reached its funding goal within 10 hours of launching on March 2 and has raised more than $117,000.

Why? The dazzling light displays speak for themselves.

Each of the M1’s three different models — Dark, White Pudding, and Sakura Pink — looks stunning when lit up.

The Dark model brilliantly mirrors the color scheme of Nintendo’s classic NES gaming controller.

Flashy RGB mechanical keyboards are a go-to item for gamers and casuals alike, and the M1 is can do anything, connecting via USB or Bluetooth.

The 6,000mAh battery can last up to two months without using the LEDs, but even with full RGB effects, 12+ hours on a single charge is still impressive.

The satisfying clack and bounceback of the keycaps feel great on your fingertips, yet the M1 remains relatively quiet.

The sturdy polycarbonate base has a mostly clear matte finish like smoky ice that lets the vibrant colors shine through.

Each of the 84 PBT keycaps in this 75-percent layout presses smoothly down thanks to double lubrication switches.

The draw for many will be the customizable, vibrant RGB displays. The M1 can visualize any sound coming from your computer, be it music or gaming.

The M1 pairs with up to three devices via Bluetooth. Swapping between them on the fly is a simple button press away.

Its greatest innovation, however, is the Marsback Pro software that lets you totally customize every aspect of the keyboard.

Reprogram individual key lights or keystroke shortcuts and save the settings as part of up to two custom profiles.

Unlike most of its competition, the M1 supports Mac with special shortcuts. Yet for some reason, the software is not compatible with MacOS ... yet.

Get an M1 for the early bird pledge price of $179 via Kickstarter or wait for the wider — but potentially more expensive — launch this summer.
