Pretty cool! but NO!


So you thought the $1,536 Optimus Maximus keyboard was a tad expensive? Peep this: the 20,000 (about $28,000) XYNERGI programmable controller from Fairlight. To be fair, you get a hell of a lot more than just a keyboard for your 28-grand as the kit includes Fairlight's CC-1 digital media engine as well. While it's targeted at media professionals, it also integrates like a peach with Microsoft Office and all your other Windows applications. Better yet, the custom key mappings are said to "intelligently" adjust depending upon the "mode the operator is in." However, judging by the video (after the break), intelligence seems defined by your ability to find (and push) the function button.

Pretty spiffy.

But not 28k spiffy. ;)

BTW, that'd probably be awesome for space sims... :alien:
