    erm... Who else thinks that the money would be better spent on a mechanical contact style keyboard?

    This just seems like extra noise for the 4% of gamers that game 50+hrs a week.

    That looks really nice IMO.

    I'd paint over the Tt at the bottom though, it looks a bit ugly. :p

    Your hand isn't going to attached to a keyboard the same way it would be attached to a mouse. My hands don't get sweaty at all. The palm of my mouse hand does sometimes.

    fan needs to blow up from underneath, imo, as its your palm/underside of fingers that typicaly get sweaty or hot, if you have that issue

    It would make more sense if it had large, slim fans blowing air through the keyboard from below. That little feller on top just looks ugly and helps only the left hand.

    Uh... the thing is wireless?? Seriously, they have made a so called special gaming board without a wire?

    And, what is the little knob on the top right? The color scheme is ok... I think.

    Wah, it looks nice. But this seems a case of what can they stick on it thats different and makes it stand out! A fan, is a decent enough idea, however it definitely looks like an after thought.

    Now a fan that blows up through the keys, now that would be something. But we can dream right?

    I agree that a fan that blows up through the gaps in between the keys would be a good idea, but even then I am thinking to myself "if I'm sweaty over tapping keys maybe I should take a break for an hour or so". The fan on this keyboard looks like something that has been blue-tacked on last minute, and personally if I were given this keyboard I would snap it off.

    This is the kind of thing Thermaltake have become known for, tacky useless ideas. Plus I would'nt bet on the build quality being up to much, just like all their products known to man!

    Has anyone patented a "Hovermouse"? No friction AND optional in-hand cooling! :D

    To be fair my hand does get quite sweaty whilst doing some heavy sessions :eek:

    I love that somone has actually put Macro keys on both sides, i literally use every key on my Sidewinder X4 when it comes to MMO's.

    I'm gonna invent palm anti perspirant and steal their target market... sure this keyboard will dry away the moisture but will it get rid of that unsavory sweaty palm smell? no! That's why you need my anti palm perspirent, which stops moisture from forming and hides unsavory smells, specially designed for hardcore gamers and chronic arse scratchers. See, I've already usurped their market and exapanded on it. Now to obliterate- what if you're both a hardcore gamer and a chronic arse scratcher, this keyboard is the last thing you want....

    Looks like a 'professional' proofreader turned professional into obsessional.

    Crazy and ugly fan design idea, surely this is only necessary if you are thinking about overclocking your hand?
