Corsair Shows Off Most Colorful Mechanical Keyboard at CES

Mechanical keyboards with Cherry MX switches are nothing new, but what if those keyswitches were backlit with the colors of the rainbow?

 

Corsair today announced the world's first gaming keyboard with Cherry MX RGB keyswitches. That means backlit keys with 16.8 million colors, guys. It's definitely the most colorful keyboard at CES. Corsair, along with German Cherry Corp., are debuting the keyboard at CES, but the former plans to launch the world's first Cherry MX RGB-based gaming keyboards later this year. 

 

No word on when, specifically, you'll be able to get your hands on these keyboards and their near limitless per-key lighting combinations, but when they do become available, you'll be able to pick 'em up with Cherry MX Red, Cherry MX Brown, or Cherry MX Blue switches.

    Very cool.

    I'm thinking about all the cool pixel-art-like images you could make on it.

    A Creeper, anyone?

    Why use WASD? Isn't better to use ESDF?

    I've used that combination since Q2 RA days until I got the Belkin Nostromo n52 and now the Orbweaver (I hate your software Razer, HATE IT!).

    Still pretty nice keyboard.

    Cheers!

    Unless you have monster hands trying to press the control key is extremely hard, as well as tab, 1 and ~ buttons.
