Remember that colorful keyboard that we showed you last year? The one that promised that each key could change between one of 512 different colors? Well it seems that they have finally gotten around to mass-producing it for public purchase. Sure, it’s been a year and a half, but at least we didn’t have to wait as long as we did for the Optimus Maximus.
I’m definitely torn on my opinion of this keyboard. On one hand, it just has keys that light up, which seems a bit cheesy. However, since you can individually control the light on each key, it does make it a little more useful for gaming, or other applications that rely heavily on keyboard shortcuts. It can also do some fancy tricks like flash rainbow colors at you, or only light up keys when they are hit. I think that it does have some practical applications, but for $199, I’ll pass.
