The novelty was a continuation of the Machenike KT68 Cyberpunk Smart Screen Keyboard model released in 2022, which also has a screen, but already at 9.1 inches with 325 LEDs. Additionally, the Machenike KT84 has a 1.47-inch high-resolution screen that displays PC temperature, weather forecast, time and date, keyboard battery level, and other service information.

The second feature of the device is transparent keycaps with an OEM profile. Thanks to them and the 20 modes of RGB lighting in the dark, the Machenike KT84 looks great. At the same time, the keyboard uses high-quality Cateron North Pole 2.0 5-pin switches with a resource of up to 100 million clicks. There is also hot swapping and support for 3-pin switches. Machenike KT84 is a compact solution with a form factor of 84% (84 buttons).

Switches and Noise Isolation System Features

For additional convenience, the novelty has a volume control wheel with an instant mute mode. And since we have a mechanical keyboard in front of us, the manufacturer also took care of noise isolation for quiet and comfortable work. The device uses 5-layer noise insulation using foamed foam, soft pads and silicone filler.
