The collection is called Mercury Capsule: a nod to Higround’s unpredictable and exciting designs, and a cheeky nod to the element mercury (whose chemical symbol is HG). Continuing the original 100 Thieves x Higround collaboration, this collection tells the story of perseverance, growth and innovation. The Mercury Pod is an updated and improved version based on feedback received from the first 100 Thieves collaboration.

Along with the new collection, Higround is thrilled to announce that Kyedae Shymko, a Canadian-Japanese Twitch streamer with a cross-platform following of over 3 million. Chosen for her style and prominent voice within the gaming community, Kyedae will join Higround’s first creator, Timmy “iiTzTimmy” An, as the second member of Higround’s Creator Council. Together, they will bring their unique insights into creating future products and partner with Higround for future initiatives. Its announcement coincides with the new Higround collection as part of a celebration of parent company 100 Thieves.

The Mercury capsule includes four unique keyboards, a mouse pad, two sets of keys, clothing, and a multifunctional bag with dedicated pockets for computer peripherals. The PBT dye-sub keycaps feature an extension of the original mountain range featured on the first collaboration’s keycaps, while also featuring a map leading to and alluding to Higround’s origin past. Two of the four keyboards feature Higround’s usual 65% shape with the reintegration of Higround’s co-designed switches with TTC called White Flames. All keyboards feature dual-damped material, OEM profile, and hot-swappable circuit boards. The similarities end there. This collection also features a keyboard that’s meant to last.

Named after Higround’s mountain designs, the Summit 65 Founder’s Edition keyboard is the main dish of the mercury capsule. The Founder’s Edition is the first release in the Summit line and is priced at $290.

Also inside the frame are Summit 65 exclusive RGB side panels and a brass medallion with the Higround mountain logo on the back of the board.

Beneath each of Higround’s uniquely designed and printed PBT dye keycaps is a Higround designed and created switch – a first for the company – called Geo Switch. Combined with a gasket-mounted design, screw-in Durock V2 stabilizers, and south-facing LED lighting, the Summit 65 is the luxury keyboard any collector dreams of.

The unveiling of Higround’s partnership with Kyedae and the Mercury capsule will take place November 16 and can be watched on Kyedae’s Twitch channel, 100 Thieves Twitch channel, and other video watching platforms.
