I'd hardly consider most of these super high end keyboards anything remotely close to art, which is how they're being priced. It takes very little actual skill to CAD something like a mechanical keyboard and have it CNC'd at a shop for $300, have it anodized, and shove a PCB and everything else into it. $1000 maybe, but just because someone does a fun color scheme and decides to make 30 of them doesn't mean people should clamor for them and pay 5x what they're actually worth when being generous.I agree but from what I’ve read at that point it’s not about using it. It’s about an investment. Almost like buying a painting or something. Those very low runs by highly regarded people are sought after in that community. And that community is full of people with tons of disposable income. I do think it’s fucking insane and would never buy anything like that.
People can obviously do what they want with their money, but for this particular hobby I think spending a lot is rather dumb.
