Ducky is no stranger to Computex, and at this year’s PC trade show, the peripheral company showcased three new products. These include the brand new Shine 6 full-sized keyboard, a 65% Bluetooth keyboard dubbed Ducky Air Bluetooth, and of course, the Ducky Pocket.
The Shine 6 is Ducky’s latest mechanical keyboard, and as far as appearances go, it’s not that much different from the Shine 5. That being said, it does gain a mouse bungee now, which can be attached to the left or right side of the keyboard. Naturally, the Shine 6 has RGB lighting, high quality PBT keycaps, and is available in four choices of Cherry MX switches: Blue, Brown, Red, and Black. Ducky also had the Ducky Year of the Monkey keyboard on display, which is essentially a limited edition Shine 6 with a more premium aluminium construction.
Also shown at Ducky’s booth is the Ducky Air Bluetooth, a compact mechanical keyboard that can be attached with an optional Bluetooth module. In Bluetooth mode, the keyboard can be paired with iOS and Android devices, although the keys will not be lit to conserve power – it is powered by two AAA batteries. If the Air is connected to a PC with a wired connection, it works just like any regular mechanical keyboard, although it only has a single colour LED lighting. Just like the Shine 6, the Ducky Air Bluetooth is available in Cherry MX Red, Black, Blue, and Brown.
Last but not least is the Ducky Pocket. As its name implies, the Pocket doubles as a regular calculator – it is powered by a button battery – and a numpad when it is connected to a PC via a micro USB cable. It also boasts n-key rollover, RGB lighting, and the usual four choices of Cherry MX switch.
According to a Ducky representative at the company’s booth, the Shine 6 will start shipping in Taiwan this August. The Ducky Air Bluetooth and Ducky Pocket, however, have not received any tentative launch date or prices yet. Rest assured, there is a very good chance these products will be coming to Malaysia; this post on Ducky Keyboard Malaysia’s Facebook page seems to suggest so.
