Default The MX RGB Project

http://www.corsair.com/us/pressrelea...es-at-ces-2014

Quote:
At CES 2014, California-based Corsair and Germany-based Cherry Corp. are debuting the "MX RGB Project" gaming keyboard. The technology showcase , based on a Vengeance K70 gaming keyboard fitted with new Cherry MX RGB keyswitches, gives gamers a first look at the vast customization and game enhancing benefits of per-key 16.8 million color backlighting.


In the second half of 2014, Corsair will bring the concept to life by launching the world’s first Cherry MX RGB-based gaming keyboards. The new keyboards promise to give gamers all of the precision, feel, and reliability of Cherry MX-based Corsair gaming keyboards enhanced with new personalization and gaming customization provided by nearly limitless per-key lighting combinations. The new keyboards will be available in several Cherry switch types: super-fast Cherry MX Red, the light tactile feedback of Cherry MX Brown, or the tactile and audible feedback provided by Cherry MX Blue.

This is very awesome!

I have some ideas on the usability and functionality of the colors, is there any contact information or can I just post my ideas here and someone can pass it on for the production / development team? I am very interested in this product.

Thx in advance.

Please please pretty please keep the promise of customization not only for US customers. In the past the german layout could only be bought with MX-Red switches. Why? Maybe you can work something out with keycap replacement sets or something. I would even pay more for a german version with MX-brown switches. Please give europe all the options, too.

Oh, one keyboard out of a huge product line. Excuse me for complaining.... [sarcasm mode off]

A K65 with browns I would buy rightaway or a black or gunmetal K70 with browns.
BTW the "german" corsair homepage does not feature the browns K70 at all. Every keyboard featured there is MX-Red or rubber dome. Maybe you should update.
