HOLY FUCK. Das is making an RGB keyboard. I MIGHT DIE.
I'm still trying to figure out if this is a April Fools joke or not. It seems legit, but at the same time it doesn't.
For those of you that don't know Das, they are a company that makes premium, professional keyboards for the working man. They have always been sleek, black boards with no LED's and minimal extra keys. Their build quality is amazing and it is by far my #1 favorite keyboard to type on.
Well, they have started a kickstarted for a brand new keyboard, called the Das 5Q. What makes this different from the other keyboard is
- First DAS with LED Backlighting
- First DAS with RGB lighting
- Individual LED hanging abilities
- Data Tracking
Now, this keyboard does some really in depth and geeky shit. Like being able to track reminders and events using keypresses and LED's. They even will have an open API and a link to the cloud so you can sync your data and brainstorm with other programmers. I don't know if I'm going to get into all of that, but having a DAS with RGB lighting and software control is enough to make me want to shit my pants.
I'm weary of kickstarter, so i'll be waiting for this thing to be on the shelves before I buy. But I wanted to share this with you and see what you think.
Only fear - getting hacked and having all of my keypresses downloaded and used to steal information.
