    I found this interesting video about optical keyboard switches from Linus. It even mentions the Wooting keyboard that was discussed here earlier. There appear to be noticeable benefits since it supposed to feel like a mech keyboard, but works in a different way. Perhaps we may see Razer come up with their own optical switch to use in a new line of Blackwidows...

    I wonder how much more power these would use than a non-backlit keyboard, or even a backlit keyboard.

    Likely not enough to be an issue, should be able to have an RGB Optical Keyboard that is powered via a single USB like all other keyboards.
