But doesn't this keyboard revert to "normal stuff" afterwards? AKA If you start FH2 the keys change to the images of what each key does, when you exit it goes back to normal?

So it is a regular keyboard until you use a different program... no?

For 1500 US/CAN$, I'd much rather make my own keyboard out of the POS that I have now than buy that overpriced piece of plastic. Though it would be nice for photoshop...I'd better get on that.

I don't really see the point of fancy images on your keyboard. My (4 year old) keyboard is so worn out that most of the keys are simply black and the white character that was on it is gone, so I don't look at my keyboard when typing or playing games anyway. For 1500 Dollar you can much better buy a computer-upgrade.

Im not into buying one of those either... already spent a lot on Dinovo Edge, but Optimus presents itself quite well. Soon it will get cheaper

Agreed, though I wouldn't refuse the keyboard if it was offered to me free of charge. I wouldn't spent any money on buying such a keyboard though, it tries to solve a problem that isn't really there (you still need to memorize the locations of the key, who cares if jumping is represented by a fancy icon or the space bar?). I'm not saying it would be totally useless but... it's not worth the pirce tag by a long shot.

lol, since that'll never happen, it'd be very good for a visual learner to memorize the key.

Looks very cool but I am not spending £750 on a keyboard, you would have to be a serious nerd/anorak to spend that amount of money on a keyboard.
