What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
Yeah but you're the kinda of guy that asks "is anal-retentive hyphenated" and you're a keyboard snob, so of course you don't like it.

:D so is this made of rubber? time for some under water computering
IMO these things suck big time. I had a flexible / fold able keyboard and the they feel terrible to type on. The keys swayed from side to side when you typed something.. Terrible feel is an understatement. Best part is they looked exactly the same as the one in pic here.

Waterproof membrane keyboards are nothing new, and are probably the technology that the negative comments above apply to. If this is a waterproof microswitch keyboard, they ought to say so and clear up the confusion.
I wonder why "keyboard condoms" aren't in vogue any more? Sure, they reduced the sensation of typing, but they did protect your keyboard from diseases, and prevented unfortunate incidents with peripherals like the hoochie mouse.

This would have really come in handy for those dark, lonely nights I spent in front of a computer during my mid-teens...
BTW, gotta agree with Marco here. I'm loving my I-Rocks KR-6230-BK!
you can have some lonely dark nights with your origin now :D, You also never got us those inside pics :D lol (no rush)
yeah i personally am fine with a regular keyboard
You say that like those are bad qualities! :p
I'm with Marco: If it's not designed for top functionality and comfort, it might as well be any other $12 keyboard.
haha, yeah. I could pop open the Origin PC and the lights inside would supply me with more than enough lighting to do whatever I need.
About the pics, sorry, everytime I turn the PC on, I quickly forget about everything else. JK...believe it or not, I haven't had much time to play with it.
HA :D ur mind goes blank and all you see is the computer screen loading when pics for the inside pop up your like WOW THESE LOOK GREAT? BUT you skip right past it :(
How much lighting is in there O.o
OWWW that price hurts. Are you sure they did not put some Gold or Diamond dust in it for something. Not that even that would justify this price for a keyboard!
they just didn't tell you but the screws are all pure gold ;)
Yeah this is totally set up for those one handed typists? The waterproof part is cool, but they really need to set it up as a gaming keyboard which can double as a DCC keyboard with hotkeys set up opposite the mouse for those late night deadlines!
They must be Inspector. As for a real keyboard what have you guys found to be the best keyboards. I as I mentioned need to get new keyboards for computers in my home. We do game as well so game abilities are a concern, but the main concern is general uses with that thrown in. So give me recommendations on best keyboard you have used!
I have seen something similar but without the backlit keyboard. I hear the military or people who are in extreme work environments could appreciate one of these. http://www.relaxtheback.com/ergotravel-keyboard-product-6547065
Ya i have seen those around i think i saw them in macys the store :D lol
