It's a cool idea. The first question that pops into my mind is how do the keys hold up in the field when you're down to one life and you're squeezing the fire button like a python with abandonment issues? The second is, how much more expensive is a keyboard like this over the traditional model? And third... you mean people actually look at the keyboard? Wow.

I was told this was a "concept" not a prototype. (Not sure of the exact difference) :)

Razer is doing some pretty innovative UI work that they also displayed at the show:

- a keyboard for StarCraft using back-lighting colors to indicate various realtime play stats, augmenting the on-screen displays.

- a working versions of Sixense, a motion controller for PCs that used magnetic sensors.

I have a couple CES related posts on my blog.

Actually, this is not the first Mini-LCD keys keybard, there has been one for a few years alredy that is like 1000$
Can it run SL? if it can, properly of course, I'll just scream at Razer to take all my moneh!

Stickers can't break, only fade. Cost to replace: a few cents. LCD? Nice idea, most expensive keyboard ever.
