    The X15 looks interesting... I wouldn't mind giving that one a try, in fact!!

    4D bump keycap
    I've been waiting for these interdimensional keycaps.

    That proximity sensor is interesting.

    The TOF sensor is actually only present in the Z20, and is used for determining the user's proximity and thus waking or sleeping the PC system. Who thinks this is a good feature for a gaming keyboard?
    Just. No. AGH!

    They would have to change shape as they were actuated so they adjusted their morphology over the temporal domain. We have really hilarious buttons on ultrasound machines - 2D and 4D.

    4D is 3D (2D interpolated into 3D) plus time. Therefore 4D
    2D is 2D over time, but they don't call it 3D.
    We also have 1D over time which is called M-mode.

    IT MAKES NO SENSE!

    What is with these marketing gimmicks:

    "4D bump keycap" - it's just a textured 3D finish and only on the WASD keys by the looks of it (not everybody uses the default mapped movement keys).
    "Time-of-flight sensor" - I don't see the point of this feature either, consider the Z20 keyboard that it's used on is a wired keyboard (2m braided USB cable).
    "Who thinks this is a good feature for a gaming keyboard?" - Perhaps, on a wireless keyboard for those who wish to save a minuscule amount of electricity at a trade-off of those occasionally moments when the keyboard doesn't detect you fast enough.

    Perhaps the mouse is in a time stream slightly ahead of ourselves so, it can register a click an instant before you click, thus giving you a competitive advantage?

    The mice look pretty solid, but the keyboards look too colorful. I was hoping for all-black design EVGA used to have on their motherboards.

    Re: EVGA launches several gaming mice and keyboards

    Why do gaming keyboard manufacturers always have to make the font on the keyboards look so stupid?

    Corsair had everything you needed 5 years ago but that all went out of the window when they switched to the tramp stamp logo
    One day there will be a keyboard that won't needs a billion mods to be good... maybe if Das Keyboard 4 had a backlight without that silly cloud stuff...
