    That does already look quite a bit like the Blackwidow X, I do like the concept of the modular design, including switching the backplate colours. Technically it would not been to difficult for Razer to replicate this as it would just be a matter of changing the switches on the existing Blackwidow X.

    Thanks for sharing!

    This looks so much like the Blackwidow X Tournament Edition...everything from the cable routing to the floating keycap design to the matte black minimalism lol. I wonder what the software is like for customizing the RGB backlight.

    The thing I like most about this keyboard is the ease of swapping out switches. This is cool because you don't have to buy a whole new keyboard (or perform surgery on your current one) to get different switches. You can also easily mix switch types. That offers a lot of choice and freedom.

    The distance detection on the switches remind me of console controller buttons that basically work in a similar way. I don't think I'm sold on having that feature for keyboards. It also kind of reminds me of the iPhone's new pressure-sensitive touch. While I think it's cool and all, I don't think it's huge. They're basically making the keyboard a bit more catered towards gaming, keyboards were made for typing in the first place, not gaming. So no matter how much you modify it, it's still a keyboard at the end of the day. I think it would be better to just create an all new method of input designed only for gaming if you want to make something truly innovative and ground breaking.
  12. I would never think that this would exist, but apparently it's a work in progress and it's appealing to me. I didn't know how analog keyboards would work, then I checked out the video, and I realized that could be pretty interesting. I can see linear switches being able to do this better than a tactile switches since there is no buckle for linear switches. I also love the digital to analog and back implementation.

    This is a great idea. If a larger tech company were to purchase this design and company, then we could see this mass produced.

    I don't play racing games, but I could see how hard you press down on a key (until bottoming out) would be like the same on the accelerator pedal of a car. Same thing for the brakes.

    In some movie theaters they have special chairs that move, vibrate, and have speakers on them. It'd be really neat to sit in this chair and use an analog keyboard for a racing game.

    This keyboard brings back the time that I was playing NFS most wanted on my pc. I used to press and hold down the W key so I can go faster and now it's reality lol. I really hope razer would make one of this too. :D

    This looks sick and it's a first for me. I've never heard of this but I'd like to think Razer would take their time in developing something worth the purchase.

    It could really be a good idea but there are problems if you prefer bottoming out your keys you will be forced to sprint or make big wheel movements

    I think it's a cool idea and has made me wonder if I should wait and see if Razer does come out with something similar.
    Now I may be a little out of the loop, but the ability to remove both the key cap and switch is pretty awesome. It would be cool if Razer produced a base board, that you could then purchase the switches you wanted. Being able to switch in and out between standard and analog, as well as having them both clicky or silent. A completely custom keyboard.
