I Want to Replace My Entire Keyboard With Fidget Spinner Keys

2017 was poised to be one of the most disappointing years in history, filled with a non-stop barrage of depressing developments and defeats. But then, with a last-minute, game-winning buzzer-beater, a company called Hammer revealed a series of replaceable fidget spinner key caps for your keyboard and partially redeemed 2017.

If you don’t understand why upgrading your keyboard with 26 or more tiny fidget spinners is a good idea—nay, a great idea—then I’m afraid 2017 has already sucked your soul dry. I’m sorry for your loss, but the rest of us who are totally willing to pry all the keycaps off our keyboards will never find ourselves lacking a distraction when we’re procrastinating on responding to an important email.


Hunt and peck typists need not apply, as these replacement keys don’t come labeled in any way. They’ll essentially turn your keyboard into a blank slate, requiring masterful touch typing skills to get any actual work done. They’re also incredibly expensive, and at $20 per key it will cost you over half a grand to just replace your A to Z keys alone. But without them, that fancy mechanical keyboard you custom-built is really only half complete at best.
