Here's a short sample video:

I'm building a driver for the RGB keyboards so that us Linux users don't miss out on the cool features. Many thanks to CalcProgrammer1 and others (link to his thread here) for decoding the LED messages - wouldn't have gotten this far without them. I really liked the music visualizer and wanted to restructure it into more of a generic driver, so here's my attempt.

It's very incomplete at the moment, needs more fine-tuning and it's still missing major features like key rebinding or the use of the G-keys, but if anyone else out there uses one of these keyboards with Linux I'd love some testing/feedback. It *should* work with the K70 as well as the K95, although I only have a K95 so I can't test the former. Might be possible to run it under OSX as well. I'll keep the GitHub posted as I make progress.
