Higround's new sneaker-themed mechanical gaming keyboard is now available exclusively via COMPLEXLAND. The IP Banned 1 was made available on December 8 at 4:00pm PT. Those interested in purchasing the IP Banned 1 must create an account on the official COMPLEXLAND website to receive the alert that will allow account holders the option to purchase the keyboard.
Virtual conventions have been all the rage since the COVID-19 pandemic forced many a shutdown around the globe, specifically in the instance of large gatherings, and COMPLEXLAND's free five-day virtual event is one of many examples of the increase in quantity of online gatherings.
Because the IP Banned 1 is only available via COMPLEXLAND's sim-style virtual convention, demand should be relatively high for those looking for a street-style take on a classic esports aesthetic. If someone is only interested in the keycaps, which use the standard Cherry MX design, Higround has also released the keycaps on its official website.
The IP Banned 1 is a 60% keyboard, which means it only is 60% of the size of a standard keyboard. To compensate, many 60% keyboards have buttons with multiple functions or simply smaller buttons across the board. For example, Higround's Sandstone Keyboard, which is also a 60% keyboard, has a smaller right Shift key to accommodate space for the Arrow keys. When compared to the Sandstone, the Banned 1 has a slightly more similar design to a standard laptop keyboard to make space.
Pricing wasn't announced ahead of the drop, but the Sandstone keyboard was priced at $135. Those interested in checking out and potentially purchasing the Banned 1 should follow the instruction's in Higround's tweet regarding the drop and head to COMPLEXLAND to create an account.
