    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.

    I think this keyboard is being targeted towards pro-gamers and these tend to NOT use wireless.

    It'll probably be a bit pricey, but it's about time someone managed to do full RGB lighting with mechanical switches. Way to go, Corsair!

    Now I wish I held out longer instead of pulling the trigger on a K70 last year...

    Linux is finally maturing in the gaming market. So... Linux support? There are probably about a zillion guys who will code drivers for free or for just one of the devices.
