HyperX announced that they were releasing refreshed HyperX Pudding Keycaps compatible with mechanical gaming keyboards. These are available in both black and white editions. The Pudding Keycaps employ a translucent dual-layer design, which enhances LED and RGB lighting and allows more light to radiate from the keyboard.
HyperX claims that the dual-layer “pudding” design’s double shot construction using polybutylene terephthalate (PBT) will lend keyboards “style and reliability, ensuring long-lasting durability, resilience and keycap legends that won’t fade like standard keycaps.” HyperX Pudding Keycaps are compatible with all of the company’s mechanical gaming keyboards as well as any that feature Cherry MX style switch stems. Additionally, the Pudding Keycaps include a keycap removal tool.
The product is manufactured using a seamless double shot injection molding process, a construction said by HyperX to result in “thicker keycap walls that are ultra-durable and oil resistant.” Finally, included with the product is a two-year warranty with HyperX support.
An obligatory warning for the times: COVID-19 may introduce problems where shipping and availability are concerned. Still the new HyperX Pudding Keycaps are available through the HyperX online shop for $24.99. You can learn more about the product and its availability at HyperX Pudding Keycaps product page.
