Das Keyboard 5Q is the World’s First Cloud Connected Keyboard [Kickstarter]

A new Kickstarter campaign by the name of ‘Das Keyboard 5Q’ from the makers of the original Das Keyboard for Mac, promises to introduce the world’s first cloud connected open API RGB mechanical keyboard, that allows each key to be color-controlled over the Internet. Built with “ground-breaking electronics” providing unsurpassed response time, the Das Keyboard 5Q streams information directly to your keyboard using a dedicated Das Keyboard Q application.


The Das Keyboard 5Q is a full size high-performance RGB keyboard that is connected to the Internet. Each RGB LED can be color-controlled remotely to represent a specific piece of information. You can program any key on the Das Keyboard 5Q to glow the color you want based on the information you define. 

There’s also a dedicated Q button on the keyboard. You push it and it sends a 5 volt discharge to your 32-bit Das Keyboard 5Q CPU, which in turn tells your desktop to display what information is currently streaming from your keyboard.
