After launching the Haylou smartwatch, Xiaomi has now added two more products to its crowdfunding platform. This time we’re looking at the Xiaomi MIIW wireless mechanical keyboard and a wireless mouse. The smartphone maker has launched two different mechanical keyboards in its homeland i.e. China. The MIIW Elite wireless keyboard comes with an 85-key design having scissor keys. For connectivity, it supports two different modes namely Bluetooth and via a dedicated wireless receiver.
Coming to the design, the keyboard has rounded corners, rounded keycaps and has a thickness of 7.8mm. Furthermore, we’re looking at a compact design with hardly any extra frames on the sides. You will find a voice key between the “Alt” and “Ctrl” keys to the right of the space bar. Pressing the key will activate the HKUST Xunfei Voice Pack. This will allow users to input text by voice by simply long pressing the key. It can also be used to activate various smart commands such as querying weather and opening tables by double pressing.

Apart from this, the company has also launched MIIW dual-mode keyboard 85 which, as the name suggests, also follows the 85-key design. The appearance is almost similar to the one we talked about previously. Unlike the Elite, this one does not come with the voice key. Xiaomi has also added a wireless mouse to the platform. The MIIW Elite mouse comes with dual-mode connection – Bluetooth and USB wireless receiver. The company is touting symmetrical design, non-slip texture, and a magnetic back shell. It supports height elevation to achieve different grips.
Coming to the pricing, the MIIW Elite keyboard is priced at 299 Yuan (roughly $42) while the dual-mode Keyboard 85 costs 179 Yuan (roughly $25). The Elite mouse also comes with a price tag of 299 Yuan ($42). All the products will be available on YouPin crowdfunding platform. The Elite keyboard and mouse will be up for on February 25 while the dual-mode 85 keyboard will be available on March 11.
