ASUS ROG X Evangelion Project EVA-02
Keyboard and Mouse
ROG Strix Scope RX EVA-02 Edition
Having such a heavily themed system is only half the equation though. Cue an EVA 02 desk pad, and input devices. First up, the Strix Scope EVA 02 edition.
Remember how we were saying about attention to detail? ASUS could be forgiven if they just went with a keycap set, but they’ve gone the whole hog. It’s not for the faint of heart, but we love the commitment.
It does make you wonder why so many keyboards are so bland when you can have one that looks this incredible. Or, *snicker*, inc-RED-ible.
The chassis, and even the lock indicators, have got the full Evangelion treatment.
Come the f on. Dual-colour feet. Remember when you paid Â£100+ for the regular ‘sombre black’? Why don’t we get one like this? Wow.
Even the key puller is matching to the rest of the theme. It’s stunning. We’re running out of superlatives.
If you want different keycaps there are some alternatives available too.
ROG Gladius III Wireless EVA-02
Just like the keyboard, the Gladius III mouse has also had the full EVA-02 treatment. We loved the regular model.
Similar to the keyboard this has a level of design detail that must have been a joy for their graphics team.
It’s not just getting ‘yellow’ or ‘red’ in the colourway, but getting the right ones, consistently. Shame about the buttons and side panel not going for a full red plastic look.
