Even if you can honestly say “I ain’t afraid of no ghosts,” does that mean you’re brave enough to hit the Gozer or Shandor key on this Ghostbusters keycap set? Maybe that’s not how you summon ghosts, but we don’t know if it’s worth the risk. Now you can show off your fandom with officially licensed Ghostbustin’ keycaps that convert your keyboard into a phantom-fighting phenomenon. Pick up the NovelKeys 195-piece keycap set for $99. How thrilling would it be to type out the best movie quote of all time, “Back off man, I’m a scientist” on this Ghostbusters keyboard?
As you can see in the above pictures, the keyboard has plenty of extras in addition to the usual letters and numbers. While we recommend putting those in their usual QWERTY format, you can decide where to place the extras you like best. The novelties and accents include the famous Ghostbusters logo and the angry face of the ultimate villain, the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. Will you be the Gatekeeper or the Keymaster? You can also rep the Venkman, Stantz, Zeddemore, or Spengler name patch depending on if Peter, Ray, Winston, or Egon is your favorite. The keys even have the unmistakable silhouettes of the Ghostbusters car and proton pack ghost traps. Or if you’re into the new movie, Ghostbusters: Afterlife, there’s also the R.T.V. (remote trap vehicle). The keycaps are compatible with Cherry MX key shapes.
Don’t fret if Ghostbusters isn’t your favorite franchise. You can choose from plenty of other nerdy keyboards and keycaps. What about these gorgeous Pokémon keycaps? Or maybe a keyboard you can customize with LEGO bricks and minifigures? And if you’re interested in geeky alphabets, you can type on versions that use Elvish or Dwarvish from The Lord of the Rings or Aurebesh from Star Wars.
