We’re giving away our Aimpad R5 review unit

If you've read our review of the Aimpad R5, you already know that we're pretty big fans of the concept behind this keyboard. If you haven't read it, be sure to check it out, because the Aimpad R5 is no ordinary input device. As much as I'd like to keep using the prototype I reviewed, it's time to send it on its way. Luckily for one of you gerbils out there, we're not sending it back to Aimpad. We're going to send it to one of you, so you can own one before anyone can buy one. We don't have any regional restrictions for this giveaway, either, so everyone can enter.

There are no hoops to jump though for this giveaway. All you need to do to enter is submit your name, email address, and shipping address using the form below. (We won't spam you with TR form letters—we only collect your address so we can ensure that entrants aren't trying to game the system with multiple entries.) We also need you to prove you're not a robot by telling us what phrase I drew for the review using the Aimpad's mouse mode. The winner will be randomly drawn and announced next week Friday, November 4th.

But wait, there's more. If you don't mind a little hoop-jumping, you could win one of four $50 Steam gift cards that are also up for grabs.

Aimpad would love to hear your feedback on their analog keyboard concept, so they've posted this survey to collect it. If you take the time to tell the company what you think, you'll be entered into a random drawing for one of the gift cards. Plus, persuasive prose potentially precipitates prototype prizes. If you make a compelling enough argument for why you should get an Aimpad R5 of your own, you may be selected to get one of your own sent your way. Aimpad will announce the winners on its YouTube channel on November 15th.

Rules and regulations

And now for the obligatory legal mumbo-jumbo. Our winner must claim their prize within 72 hours, or they will forfeit it, and we will draw a new winner. Only one entry is permitted per person, household, or email address. Please don't try to game the system by entering your girlfriend, wife, kids or pets. We'll probably disqualify you if you do.

You must include your full name, a valid email address, and a physical shipping address with your entry. Only the winner's name will be announced on the site. We will not share your address or other personal information with our sponsors or anyone else. However, in this case, the folks at Aimpad would greatly appreciate it if the winner would contact them to provide feedback.

Incomplete entries will be disqualified. TR reserves the right to disqualify entries that appear to be attempts to game the system or circumvent the rules in any way. The staff of The Tech Report and their immediate families may not enter the giveaway and are not eligible to win.

No purchase is necessary. This giveaway is void where prohibited by law. TR and our sponsors are not responsible for any taxes on the prize, damage in shipping, damage caused by using the prize with other products, or health issues such as repetitive strain injury, eye strain, or chemical addictions that may result from prolonged use of the prize. We may answer questions and offer clarifications of the rules in this post's comments thread.

      Yeah, I don’t want to know the legal fees involved with setting up an international giveaway. Whew.

    So they want you to give a positive review!!!!!!!
    Or am I missing something?

      The results of the survey are just for their own use, it’s not a public review. I think they’re looking for, “I work for big keyboard OEM X and I want a keyboard because we like your tech” or “I’m a game dev and I want to test it with my title” or “i’m a big famous youtuber” or “i’m a nobody but i have an [i<]awesome[/i<] idea i think i can sell you on" etc...

    Would really like to test this keyboard in GTA V, my current sofa setup for that game is driving with a controller and grabbing the mouse on my armrest if I have to snipe, not really optimal especially in online sessions, unreal how many mouse users that plays in aim assisted lobbies in that game, guess they suck hard if they need to own controller users with their mouse.

That's one scary keyboard.

      He probably meant to say, “Chemicals known by the State of California to cause addictions.”

    This great. Thanks for offering it up. I’d love to enter and try it out but I don’t have the time to play with it and give feedback. Good luck everyone!

    As usual US Entry only ? or Open season ? 😉

    EDIT: Seems give away is open for all, Thanks for the shot TR. 🙂

      Bear in mind they’re not going to pay customs charges, so it could cost you a fair amount if you win it from outside the US. It’s not uncommon for prototypes to cost hundreds or even a couple of thousand to build and duty and taxes are typically levied against the value of a product.

      Value isn’t necessarily the same thing as cost though.

        That’s a pretty weak Turing test.

            Okay. Say whatever is in your mind freely. Our conversation will be kept in strict confidence.

            A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

            Why do you think the only winning move is not to play?
