One of the new keyboards from ROCCAT is the Isku+ Force FX, it's a membrane-based keyboard but one of the features that makes it interesting are its pressure-sensitive QWEASD keys. In standard mode, they will operate like traditional keys but in "smooth steps mode" the keys will react to the amount of pressure used. For example, lower key pressure will make you walk slower in-game.
Other features include RGB LED illumination, on-the-fly macro recording, and extra macro keys.
This force-sensitive keyboard hits the market towards mid-January for around $99.99.
The Isku+ Force FX is the first product to debut Force FX technology, boasting pressure-sensitive QWEASD keys which can be configured in three different modes. The keyboard represents total gaming domination, combining amazing technical engineering with a modern, refreshed design. The Isku+ Force FX offers you supreme quality, precision command, and a bold, uniquely ROCCAT® aesthetic. The Isku+ Force FX is control, intensified.
The Isku+ Force FX features pressure-sensitive QWEASD keys which can be configured in three different modes. The default mode is standard, whereby the keys function as normal. Smooth steps mode is where things get interesting. In this mode, the keys will react to the amount of pressure used, for incremental input. The final mode lets you assign up to three functions to any single key, accessible via defined modifier keys such as CTRL and ALT.
