Mechanical keyboards can make for an excellent typing and gaming experience, and now they’re coming in a hyperthin package.

Razer, the company responsible for a number of gaming hardware products, announced its new Razer Mechanical Keyboard Case for the iPad Pro today. This is a thin cover that features Razer’s world-first “ultra-low-profile mechanical switch.” The company claims this is a new evolution for the world of mechanical keyboards, which are known for their longer-lasting keys that also provide better feedback. The case is available now on Razer’s website for $170.

“We’re commonly thought of as a company that makes phenomenal products for gamers, but to design the very best products, we’ve had to innovate from the ground up — even from each individual component such as mechanical switches,” Razer chief executive Min-Liang Tan said in a statement. “We’re excited about the potential of our ultra-low-profile mechanical switch and look forward to exploring other applications in addition to the mechanical keyboard we’ve designed for the iPad Pro.”

Razer provided the following specifications for its newest product:

  • Razer ultra-low profile mechanical switches
  • Optimized actuation and reset points
  • Slim chiclet keycaps
  • Designed for iPad Pro
  • Metal kickstand
  • Detachable polycarbonate protective case
  • Bluetooth
  • 10 hours on a single charge with backlight on maximum brightness
