Designed to provide
programmability and control, Logitech's G15 keyboard is the first keyboard
in the G-series family of gaming-grade peripherals, featureing a built-in auxiliary LCD display,
18 programmable keys, custom commands keys. The adjustable-tilt, backlit LCD can be
programmed to display vital in-game information, or data from other
applications, without interrupting game play.
Logitech's first-of-its-kind LCD display will be
supported by several new games later this year, providing game information such
as score, times, health status, and ammunition levels. Out of the box, the LCD panel can be programmed
to show information from other applications, such as incoming e-mail alerts, CPU speed,
or even media player information, without interfering with the game on screen. A software development kit (SDK) will be included on the installation CD, allowing gamers to write their own programs for customized information to be displayed on the LCD screen. The Logitech G15 keyboard will be available beginning in October for about $80USD.
