Finalmouse Prototype Leak shows off a keyboard with interactive skins + its own CPU and GPU


Computer hardware continues to evolve and innovate over time. NVIDIA’s RTX 4090 cards usher in new levels of performance, like the cards being powerful enough for 13K gaming. Keyboards are no exception; mechanical keyboards, wireless keyboards, etc., are populating the market healthily. One of the manufacturers in question is Finalmouse.

We’re going to be discussing a new keyboard model leaked today, and this one is a doozy. Found online by Jake Lucky on Twitter, prop maker Finalmouse has an Alpha prototype in development, with images circulating online. You can watch this video and additional information below.

Besides being a very obvious prototype right now, the visual detail of the keyboard is something to behold. Skins can be built in Unreal Engine 5 on PC and are completely interactive, displaying on the body of the keyboard (as shown in the video above with a preview of the fish on the board).

Continuing the thread reveals more specs about Finalmouse’s keyboard. On the one hand, it has an in-house built GPU and CPU (although the specs for those parts have not been disclosed), a glass module stack that runs at 8khz (with 2k and 4k options) and the ability to take skins from a collection on Steam and redeem them on the keyboard.

This prototype could also very well be Finalmouse’s Freethinking mechanical keyboard project that they announced last January. You can see that tweet below for context.

Finalmouse’s Twitter also pointed out that consumers should wait until December 17 (the date listed in the tweet above) before “speculating too much,” only adding more credence to this leak. You can see that tweet below.

This kind of hardware advancement is quite impressive and begs the question: what hardware will self-power next, like a mouse with similar functionality? Regardless, this story is still in development and we’ll continue to update it as more information about it becomes public.
