The Drevo Calibur 72, also known as the KeyCool 72, is a compact mechanical keyboard with a couple of interesting features: Bluetooth connectivity and RGB backlighting. The former allows the Calibur to be used with a wide range of devices, from desktops and laptops all the way down to tablets and smartphones, while the latter ensures that the keyboard looks pretty.
