8BitDo NES-Themed Keyboard

8BitDo have just opened pre-orders on an NES and Famicom-themed “Retro Mechanical” keyboards.  They offer bluetooth, 2.4GHz RF and USB connections and also come with two buttons that you can map to basically anything using their software.  The price is $100 and they’re due to ship by the end of September.  Select which edition you’d like in the link:
