Alienware’s latest marketing exercise involves its AW420K mechanical keyboard and AW720M gaming mouse, but it’s not the conventional one: the company has in fact fabricated a supersized versions of both models by a 14:1 scale (meaning 14x larger in dimensions), and invited the guys from Team Liquid Dota to try them out.

According to the host, this peripheral set is 3D printed; the keyboard’s spacebar itself weighs almost 20 pounds (~9kg) on its own, with a 1-inch copper pipe acting as a stabilizer. The keys themselves are fully functional, and involves a whole 4 inches (10cm) of actuation distance, although unlike its original counterpart, this replica uses a rubber band instead of a spring for actuation, and uses a separate metal plate made out of measuring tape to simulate the actuation feedback.

As for the supersized AW720M mouse, it comes fully functional – with sensor, mouse wheels, side buttons and RGB lighting all replicated exactly to the original. It also happens to be incredibly huge and heavy, requiring at least two people to operate.

The members of the Liquid Dota is pitted against their coach for a match for the prize; and prior to that is a quick bit of training to get familiar with the size of these things. As seen in the video, they were struggling to operate the mouse in drawing on Microsoft Paint, though typing test fared slightly better, achieving 14 words per minute in their best result.

You can watch the video here and see the chaos ensue – in any case, this is a fun marketing exercise to promote Alienware’s latest peripheral offerings.
