German Electronic Design GMK Retrowave

Its 1987.

You’ve just come off Venice beach on a hot July afternoon as the sun is setting. But your day has only just begun. You run to the arcade. You grab a cola, your quarters and head to your favourite seat. You strap in, load your coins, hands on the wheel and wait. 3….2….1…. DRIVE. You pass each car with ease, changing the station on the radio as you note the time left on your clock. You speed up level by level as day turns to night but you’re not slowing down. You look out beyond the cyan palm trees, towards the jagged hills as their glow increases and you begin to dream. It’s just you, your F40 and a never ending road, driving towards that neon sun.

GMK Retrowave has several kits made to fit your board as you need, 1800, HKKB, 65%, GMMK Pro, Ducky, Leopold, anything you might have, you name it, it will fit with the right kitting. Just be aware there is no full ISO layout support, only ISO Hardware keys that provide some flexibility for us EU folks.
