Roccat Studios, a European peripheral maker is no stranger when it comes to gaming peripherals. Recently, it released in Germany, the latest addition to its gaming keyboard line up – the Roccat Isku Illuminated Gaming Keyboard.

Unlike other standard keyboards, Roccat’s Isku is larger, measuring 24.7cm x 50.9cm with a thickness of approximately 2.5cm.
