Why do some gamers on twitch turn their space key on the keyboard by 180 degrees? Like upside down..? Is this just for better haptics?

Most space bars are sloped downwards, towards the user. By rotating it 180 degrees, the highest part of the bar is now closer to the user, making it a little easier/quicker to press and activate in games.

makes sense!
Actually that's amazing! We care about mouse hz frequency by impulse transaction speed in miliseconds but in the real world we don't optimize enough. nice one. I love it!
