While most of the information has already been discussed, Corsair and Cherry have now officially debut their first MX RGB keyboard. These special switches allow for 16.8 million colors to be selected for any individual key. Corsair provided us with a video of several effects in action from a wavy rainbow to shock waves emanating from specific points - even more practical configurations such as alternate colors for the WSAD and the arrow keys.
Keyboards containing three of the four main switches (Red, Blue, and Brown) will be available in the second half of this year. There is the curious omission of the Black switches, essentially Reds with a tougher spring, but I was honestly not expecting anything but the Reds.
The initiative is called the "MX RGB Project" (which is a suitable name albeit a little bland). The models shown at CES are based upon the Vengeance K70. There is currently no word, yet, about which models will be presented at launch later in the year.
The main point of this announcement, however, is to note that the keyboards will be on display from now until the evening of January 9th.
