The Epomaker NT68 is a compact mechanical keyboard designed to sit on top of your MacBook’s keyboard

If you're a fan of mechanical keyboards, but feel forced to use a scissor-switch keyboard instead (or, worse, Apple's butterfly keyboard!), then Epomaker may have just unveiled a worthwhile option for you.

This new mechanical keyboard (via The Verge) is a compact option, designed to be easily portable so you can bring it with you wherever you might need to get some typing done. The idea is pretty unique, albeit not exclusive: a small keyboard that's designed to sit right on top of the built-in keyboard on your MacBook. Size wise, it'll fit right atop the 12-inch MacBook's butterfly keyboard.
