Who is the Geekiest of them All?

Do you fancy yourself the coolest coder, PC gamer, or screenwriter in the land? Then Das Keyboard has your name all over it. But only metaphorically. You see, Das Keyboard's keys are completely unlabeled, so you can really impress your friends and coworkers while you type. Of course, once they begin receieving indecipherable e-mails from you, your coolness factor may dip a bit. But seriously, Wired's tester greatly improved his touch-typing when using this keyboard, especially when entering the special characters. (He'd have to.) So, if you're a masochist, Das Keyboard is the text-entry device for you. If, on the other hand, you are a sadist, then it makes a great gift.

Oh, and Das Keyboard has another neato feature, the key-return springs do not all have the same spring constant. The springs are have 5 different weights corresponding to the strength of the finger used to type. Nifty, eh?
