A cool concept, perhaps the future of gaming keyboards?

    I've recently started to play league of legends and one thing I'm still not good at it constantly checking my skills to see when their cooldowns are done, so my proposed solution? A keyboard with a vibrate/haptic feedback in each individual key that every game can tap into to send the vibrating command. No longer will consoles be the only one's that can have a more immersive experience. We are le pc master race!

    What do you guys think?

    You probably can setup this with a bit of chroma-apps. Maybe when you press the key and than after a few secounds i comes again :eek:. Just create an app ;)

    yeah i think it's quite a cool idea. I know for mmos, when the spell is almost done (or 0.5/1 sec) to finish cooldown, the specific key could vibrate or haptic feedback as you said. That will up the level of gaming experience. cool idea!

    Interesting concept, I imagine that a keyboard with 100+ little motors in a keyboard to allow rumble on any key would be prohibitively expensive, but a keyboard where maybe just the QWERTY and 1-6 keys can vibrate would be a lot more feasible.

    Obviously a flashing key on a Chroma wouldn't be particularly effective here, since your eyes should be on the screen/map. But that could be useful in MMOs where twitch reaction time isn't as important and your eyes can wander.

    That keyboard would be quiet awesome. I would have more a chroma for each skill than a vibration

    A Razer rep spoke on this during a CES video on the Stealth. The keyboard is definitely capable of doing this if the right app is developed for it.

    That would be quite expensive to make keys vibrate on individual keys and it would only be useful on keys that you'd be keeping your fingers on so you feel it vibrate. Umm, kinda pointless on a keyboard and waaay expensive. Only limitedly useful on a gaming keypad, maybe even only limited to 4 keys.

    Damn.. I need a job to buy that keyboard


    I don't think chroma will be useful in this case since your focus will be mostly on the screen not the keyboard...

    You got a point, still i'm not a fan of vibration, I think it would be strange

    For cost and complexity reasons, I doubt it would ever be done outside WASD and 1-6. RGB LEDs would be useless as your eyes would be on the screen.

    I think Steelseries have done it right: Haptic feedback in the mouse that's configurable.

    An app wouldn't work in this case, the whole reason for the sensation of touch on a keyboard / a few keys is so you can focus on the screen rather than the keyboard where your fingers are covering the lights.

    And I agree with what people are saying here, having EVERY key like that would be really hard so perhaps a few keys such as qwer for league etc would be a better option.
