If Optimus Keyboard from Art Lebedev is the ultimate keyboard for designers, this Star Wars Keyboard With Color LCD Touchpad is the ultimate keyboard from gamers. Keyboard design has been pretty dull until Art Lebedev made the changes with their Optimus series, and starting for that time, people has started to implement LED display into the keys in the keyboard which allow users to customize at will.
This Star Wars Keyboard with LCD touch pad is the same thing (supposed to be) inspired by the work of the great Art Lebedev. The keyboard is not only coming with a cool Tron-Legacy style glowing border and back-lighted keys, the usual numeric pad section is completely revolutionize with ten LED-display filled keys and big LCD touchpad that could also act as a secondary display.
The ten LED hotkeys are adaptive tactile keys that let you customize to your heart content. For example, you can customize it as the hot keys to your favorite spells in your MMORPG games, use it for macros, or fast access to your favorite applications. You can change the display to your liking with the included software. It’s said that the keyboard is made for Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO, but actually you can use it on any MMO games such as WOW, DragonNest, Ragnarok, etc.
The coolest feature on this Star Wars keyboard is the LCD display that could double as a touchpad. If you’ve got a mouse in your hand, you’ll need no trackpad at all. In this case, you can use it as a secondary display for IM, or even for displaying Youtube videos like the following example:
Whether engaged in deadly space combat in your starship or executing a critical mission on Coruscant, the rapid-actuating slim keys allow for shorter travel distance so you can reach key-binds and macros more efficiently. This keyboard features complete anti-ghosting of up to 10 key presses to let you further expand your repertoire of boss-killing, Flashpoint-destroying, and world-exploring macros and skills. With the ability to execute more than a single key command at one time, it’s an absolute competitive advantage for taking your game to the next level. You’ll be the fastest Jedi or Sith Master on the block.
