Razer Lycosa Keyboard


Razer bills its Lycosa Keyboard as being ideal for gamers, but you'll appreciate it no matter how you spend your time at the computer. The low-profile rubberized keys make typing easier and more comfortable than other keyboards - perfect for you master bloggers out there. At a touch, you can turn on the keyboard's built-in LED backlighting to illuminate all the keys, or just the standard WASD foursome, meaning you'll never have to guess where the buttons are in the midst of a heated gaming session, even in the dead of night. Light? Psh. Who needs light?


LED Umbrella
