What you need to know
- Stack Overflow and Drop have a new keyboard that is three keys big.
- Those keys are C, V, and a bursting slinky spring toy.
- The three-key board is available for $29 at Drop and will ship by December 13, 2021.
There's not much to say about The Key. It's a keyboard that is three keys big. Though its superficial gag is that it's only for copying and pasting (hence why two of the three keys are C and V), all keys can be reprogrammed to do whatever you want. It's available for $29 at Drop and shipments are expected to go out by December 13, 2021.
While three keys might not be enough to give The Key a real shot at being on our best keyboards roundup, it's not like this thing is trying to be the most functional gadget on the market. It's just trying to be a fun little surprise for tech enthusiasts. If you want to learn more about The Key, like its bizarre meme backstory ("lore," if you will), check out @cassidoo's informative coverage.

And while you're checking out her stuff, get a load of the box art for "The Key." The quote on said box is just icing on an already impossibly small cake. "Good artists copy. Great artists steal. Greatest artists copy, then paste." Spectacular. Whether you plan to buy the macropad that equals out to about $10 per key is your call, but really appreciate the quality advertising copy.

I would hope the stack overflow button on there would be a key to open your browser by default. That way I can set my home to their website. I'll let you know in mid December.
That's the kind of enthusiasm and investigative drive we need more of on this site. Godspeed, Copiondor.
This is ridiculous and I love it.
Should have been 4 keys, so you can spell a few 4 letter words.
I like the disclaimer at the end
oh and this keyboard is really great and should definitely be your main keyboard if you copy paste 24/7 for literally everything you do 👍
