CES 2011: The Most Unique Products We’ve Seen

The Marquee

The Marquee is a custom-designed keyboard with a polished bronze frame, old style typewriter keys, and inlaid with aged leather. The lock LEDs look like they could have been taken off of a 1950’s control panel. The style of the keyboard is called “steampunk,” also known as the old new style. It is not only the keyboard that is unbelievable: its price ranges from USD 1200 to USD 1300.

This keyboard was designed by Richard Nagy, who is an artist that specializes in the steampunk style and works on a commission basis. On his website he commented that he is thinking moving to a larger workspace so that he could produce more pieces at a time, but as of right now he is producing only one keyboard at a time upon request.
