Klingon keyboard

In a world where there are both custom keyboards for blondes and insanely over-devoted Trekkies, this was inevitable: the Klingon keyboard. British custom peripheral maker Cherry Keyboards offers a mod of its G83-6000 that sports Klingon characters where the standard Western alphabet keys usually reside.

This will come in handy for making all those veiled threats to the office manager who never seems to order raktajino for the breakroom coffeemaker, no matter how many times you ask. Just combine the keyboard with the Klingon Translator service and the Klingon typeface to get the full, nerd-encoded effect. I'll be over here taking bets on the likelihood your genotype ever gets passed on to a second generation (odds 761:1 against currently).
