If you were wondering how to incorporate mechanical fish into your PC build, then Akko’s 3108v2 Monet’s Pond may be the opportunity you have been waiting for. The case is made of ABS plastic, with PBT plastic keycaps and a steel plate inside to give it strength along with your Akko, Gateron or TTC mechanical switches.
The picture shows some of the available buttons that you can swap out to replace more traditionally labeled ones, although omitting the kettle keycap is rather disappointing. You can easily change the ornate keycaps with the included metal pulling tool, which TechPowerUp values that the keys are not damaged when exchanged. You were also pretty impressed with the matching palm rest and desk pad, which you can pick up separately.
You can’t remap the dedicated volume and macro buttons above the number pad, but you can actually record and trigger macros in a snap. These Akko peripherals will cost you a little more than the competition, but if you’re looking for a unique and interesting keyboard it could be well worth the cost.
