Customizable Keyboards

Create a keyboard with just the keys you need for a specific application or game. Instead of using the QWERTY keyboard, create your own. Attach macros to keys. The DX1 Input System allows you to do all of this. You attach blank keys to an adhesive-type pad. The keys communicate wirelessly with a base, which connects via USB to your computer. You can decide where the keys should be placed and what each should do. According to the CNET article, the audience includes those that use macros or complex, repetitive key commands and those that game. Currently available for Windows 2000 and XP; coming soon for Apple OS X and Linux. Retails for about $150. [from CNET.com]
