RGB has been the main ‘feature’ of the gaming PC market of late, with all the fancy lights adding to the ‘bling’ of a standard machine. But what if that bling was actual bling, and we started moving into precious metals being used for the most random accessories? Well ADATA has you covered with its 24-carat gold keyboard design.

ADATA told us that they initially received the request from someone with enough money, and they designed their aluminium Summoner keyboard to have 24K gold plating. After building it, they built a few more: six to be exact. The retail price of the unit, we were told, is $10k. Unfortunately ADATA isn’t sampling this one to press.

The gold on the keyboard is a plating, rather than making it solid gold. However, behind the gold is aluminium, which makes it heavier than a standard keyboard. The unit was actually quite cold to type on, given that all the keys are metallic. The keyboard isn’t plated at the bottom, in case anyone was wondering.

If you have money burning a hole in your pocket, then give your ADATA rep a call.

I forgot to ask if it comes with a warranty.

    That looks so cheap. You could achieve the same effect with a rattle can of gold paint. Reply

    The thing about these sorts of bling items is that they don't attract wealthy working individuals. Many people with wealth prefer to fly below the radar and have no interest in broadcasting their assets to the public in the form of purchased status symbols. Besides that, in order for middle income sorts to even attain wealth, they have to exercise a considerable amount of self-control when it comes to expenditures so as little income as possible goes to bills and as much as possible goes into wealth-building efforts. Something like this goes against that philosophy and would probably attract either a company purchasing one for giggles or someone that has worth that was not self-made -- perhaps someone that is known wealthy and has an image to maintain like a celebrity sort might also be attracted to one as an investment in their fame.

    I can think of no other place in the world where a gold-plated keyboard wouldn't be more of a thing you just (resignedly) expect to encounter.
