    Geekpoe! I wasn’t sure if that was really real. In fact, I’m still not.

    If only it had a curved keyboard, I’d be all over it. Years of ergo keyboard use has made my hands abhor flat keyboards.

    The contrast between this and the previous post extolling the virtues of a long life in a low tech village is amusing.

    @The Tragically Flip: Yes, one is fascinating, but one is must-have. Priorities.

    Nice keyboard, but I think the monitor is a little small.

    I have a Logitech gaming keyboard & mouse that I need to eBay. No longer playing SWToR and refuse to join my brother back in WoW so went back to a smaller, less crammed keyboard.

    Looks cool. I myself don’t have time for gaming any longer. Maybe one day but not now.

    That keyboard is teh awesome!

    Btw, in personal geek news, I was selected as a beta tester for the new Marvel Heroes game. There’s a two hour testing session tonight – woot woot.

    I’m designing a keyboard that can call me out sick from work and then drive to the convenience store and get me beer.

    NCSteve says:

    Great. I wanted to go get a drink of water, but now I’m stuck here behind the desk for at least twenty minutes.

    But I’m sure it would be just as hard to use with a cat in your lap and another walking back and forth on it in front of the monitor as my regular ol’ MS ergonomic keyboard is.

    @The Tragically Flip:

    One of them is a troll, and now we have to figure out which one.

    The first one saw one was Mahler
    Whose buddies all knew him as Gustav
    And each time he saw it he’d holler
    “ach, zat ess de keyboard I moost haf!”

    Would really like a backlit keyboard, but not one that’s been attacked with a machete.

    Hah, saw that exact thing earlier today and thought whoa, that’s wild.

    OT, but too delicious to not post: Sam Wang of Princeton Election Consortium absolutely schools Bobo on polling. Oh, DougJ… ;)

    Think it through: what are the odds of Cole dating anybody who’s not a gamer? This is probably a getting-to-know-you gift.

    Great, it’s a keyboard that’s absolutely amazing for people /who look at their keyboard/.

    … and I still want it. What the hell?

    I’d look at Logitech gaming keyboards before plunking for this one. The better Logitechs have a number of dedicated macro keys and their software includes a macro recorder. Madcatz software is teh suxxors.

    I have that keyboard. It’s pretty good. I actually recommend their R.A.T. mouse as well, especially for FPS play.

    Keyboards shouldn’t cost more than the damn video card. Eesh (and I have decent video card on my ancient Core 2 Duo).

    They are trolling with that Half-Life 3 logo on the little display thing.

    Nied says:

    I have a Mad Catz/Cyborg R.A.T 9 mouse that I bought close to a year ago and I have to say I’m quite happy with the build quality of the thing. As someone with really long fingers, being able to customize the size and shape is a godsend. No more dragging my pinkie finger accross the mousepad in a particularly tense firefight in ME3.

    Well, I want one of these.

    I thought a cockpit was what Ladyfriend was for.

    What I meant to say/do was, I want one of these. And only $45,000.

    Wouldn’t it be easier to just become an actual race car driver?

    @Seanly: what make/model of keyboard and mouse?

    @Higgs Boson’s Mate:

    I have the Logitech G-510 and I have it programmed for all kinds of shit. I run some game servers and it’s nice being able to nuke some trolls ass with the press of a key.

    More like slap the little fucker from one end of the game to the other and then nuke/ban their ass once I’m bored.

    Bah. Give me a basic layout mechanical keyboard any day. These madcatz keyboards can get off my lawn.

    @The Tragically Flip: Well said. If Mr. Cole slathers himself in olive oil, uses enough macros to give himself time to take quick naps and eats meat only five times a month there’s no reason why he can’t have the best of both worlds.

    @Goblue72: I believe it’s already been stated that at least least one evening was spent WoWing together.

    What does that mean?

    It’s a Madcatz, 50% chance it’s dead in a week.
