The Geeks have featured a couple of keyboards lately as Gizmos of the Day, but a friend mentioned we had to feature the ‘fraggiest’ keyboard on the market called the DX1 Input System. After a quick look, we agree that this keyboard is ‘fraggin’ groovy; however, as non-hardcore gamers, we were left wondering what exactly ‘fraggin’ was.
The DX1 works perfectly for gamers because you can actually move the keys to fit your hand and assign a macro for each key. You just have to stick the keys where you want on the pad and then tell the DX1 what you want the keys to do designing your ultimate gamer keyboard. In addition to gaming, you can use the DX1 through different applications such as assigning the keys certain Photoshop macro keys or Visual Studio macros.
The 25 included buttons stick to the Tray in any configuration. And, if you change your mind or mess up, they are removable and moveable â€“ just twist off and restick. The Tray is clear, so you can make your own backgrounds. Maybe youâ€™ll label your buttons, maybe youâ€™ll slide in artwork â€“ the choice is yours. And the two permanent little buttons let you bring up the DX1 control panel and assign/record macros on the fly. Thatâ€™s right: you can be in-game, realize you need a new key, stick it down, assign it a command or macro, and keep playing.
The DX1 works with any program and can remember a different set of macros for each program you use! You could stick down the keys and without changing anything other than the program you are using, they would serve as a pallet of commands in Photoshop, a squadron of macros for your favorite RTS, and your perfect arsenal for your fraggiest FPS! With the DX1, your competitors will hit 1 button to fire at you, while youâ€™ll hit 1 button to fire, switch weapons, fire again, duck, switch back to your original weapon, and reload! Ultimate power and ultimate control is now at your fingertips.
