Most low cost keyboard that you are using can only detect up to 3 or 5 keys pressed at once while leaving the additional pressed key as an error that will trigger error sound. This case is not going to happen with this new Microsoft Sidewinder X4 Keyboard with Enhanced interaction will let you press up to 26 keys at once! This is impossible because we have limited 10 fingers only. Except you are trying to bash the keyboard with something wide, you won’t use that 26 keys limit for your entire life.
Microsoft Sidewinder X4 Keyboard has the most advanced anti ghosting technology, which mean it can detect each key press correctly even though you have pressed it at the same time. You can also use Microsoft Sidewinder X4 Keyboard to do macro recording and programmed multiple moves and commands into a single button. This is such a convenient feature for those who love to play fighting games that require a sort of combo move that sometimes hard to execute when playing.
“We’re always looking for new and novel ways to enhance people’s interactions with their PCs,” said Steven Bathiche, research manager of the Applied Sciences Group at Microsoft. “We know that ghosting can be a problem for gamers, so we wanted to develop a way to eliminate this issue and improve the overall gaming experience, and we’ve succeeded with the new anti-ghosting technology in the SideWinder X4 Keyboard.”
This Microsoft Sidewinder X4 Keyboard will be on sale starting this March 2010 for about $60 only for the corded option. Pretty cool.
