Angry Miao Releases CYBERBOARD R3

CYBERBOARD R3 is priced at 570 USD for Budapest Pink, Aquatic Green and Basalt Black and 620 USD for the Cloud White variant.

"CYBERBOARD is a product for nerds in the know. Many of its early supporters came from tech companies like Google, Tesla and Facebook." said Li Nan, founder of Angry Miao. "However, street fashion and unique sub-cultures are something we're truly interested in. Hypebeast's coverage on our AM HATSU keyboard only further strengthened this interest. Thus, Wes Anderson inspired this generation of CYBERBOARD. We hope that the striking shades of his color palette - pink in particular - would interest new female users. Although we may find out that buyers are still the hardcore geeks afterall."
