Other features include blue backlighting and Cherry MX Red switches. There is no numeric keypad.
The device can be connected to a PC or laptop via Bluetooth or a USB adapter with a frequency of 2.4 GHz and with 128-bit AES encryption. Another option is to connect via cable and charge the battery simultaneously.
The cost is about 160 dollars.

Wuque Studio Mammoth75
This is a luxury keyboard – one of the most expensive on the market. Its base price starts at $359, & the complete set costs $719—such a difference in price because of materials and the number of functions. For example, the wireless option is more expensive than the wired one.
Like many other custom models, it needs to be assembled. The keyboard comes with a separate number key module, but switches and buttons must be purchased separately.
