Mad Catz new S.T.R.I.K.E.7 keyboard has just been unveiled at Gamescom.
The new keyboard (which caused a little hubbub because of a Half Life 3 logo in its reveal video) boasts a modular design and customizable touch screen (which they are calling V.E.N.O.M.). According to Mad Catz, "the touch screen interface enables the gamer to take control of their gaming environment, launch games or applications at the swipe of a finger, deploy custom macro commands, program chat, game, media settings and more." It will also work with their F.R.E.Q. headsets as well as their R.A.T. gaming mice.
This new keyboard certainly offers a high level of customization in theory, but I will have to see how it works in person before I purchase one. For those that are willing to take the leap, they are now available for purchase here.
