Razer Announces the Lycosa Gaming Keyboard

By Shane McGlaun

Razer announced a new gaming keyboard yesterday called the Lycosa. Presumably Lycosa is some sort of spider since Razer names its keyboards, like the Tarantula, after arachnids. I have a Tarantula keyboard and the biggest complaint I have with it is the lack of backlit keys.

Razer addresses that with the new Lycosa sporting complete backlighting and the ability to backlight the WASD keys alone. The key tops are covered in a non-slip rubber finish. The keys are fully programmable and can have macros bound to them and you can store 10 software profiles to the internal memory.

The memory inside the Lycosa allows you to build your profiles and macros in the familiar Razer Synapse software and then use the keyboard profiles and macros on computers without needing to install software. Razer also uses 1000Hz Ultrapolling in the keyboard, as Razer uses in the upcoming Lachesis mouse. The keyboard also sports a detachable wrist rest, one USB port and earphone-out and mic-in jacks. The Lycosa will be available in November for $79.99.

    All this Razer stuff is very tempting. If razer made pc cases and screens, my new computer would be pure Razer.

    I’ve pretty much been doing nothing to speak of. Such is life. It’s not important. Not that it matters.

    Not much on my mind right now. I’ve just been hanging out doing nothing. I’ve just been letting everything pass me by lately. That’s how it is. Nothing seems important, but so it goes.
