Editor's impression: The tech industry has always been fascinated by the first of April. By this I mean we are seeing an ever-increasing number of products becoming real products. The latest Stack Overflow site programming example is provided. Not everything is practical, but it is elegant.
Last spring, Stack Overflow had a gag where every time a user entered a keyboard command to copy site characters, they received a popup informing them, which is almost without a free version. “If they wanted unlimited copy-and-paste access from Stack Overflow, they would buy that key,” says Ben Popper, Stack Overflow's Director of Content. p>
Lots of stupid people liked, but few others were interested in buying the key. In response, the team quietly began developing the product, which was only submitted for pre-order.
Stack Overflow collaboration with keyboard enthusiasts Mechanical Cassidy Williams, together they came up with the idea of developing the final product. The result is the large $29 palette you see above.
The key has three programmable keys that are equipped with Kailh Box Black keys and have custom keys with Stack Overflow specifications under the XDA brand.
The first case is a set of simple consoles already in use, but Drop still agrees to pre-purchase the second wave, which should be ready by December. Stack Overflow donates a portion of its revenue to Digital Undivided, a nonprofit organization that supports the economic growth of black and Latina women entrepreneurs. Drop also donates five percent of its revenue to the cause.
