The $28,000 keyboard

For "media professionals" only.


When computer peripherals such as external hard drives become designer items, you know that the world has turned upside-down. So it comes as little surprise that more attention is being paid to keyboards--after all, for some people, they get more physical attention than loved ones.

But $28,000? That does seem a bit much, even in this Age of Wretched Excess. Still, someone is sure to pay the egregious price for one of Fairlight's "XYNERGI" keyboards (excuse us: "programmable controllers"). See the video below for a demonstration.

Whatever it's called, this monster is not surprisingly designed for media professionals, who apparently find huge value in its "custom key mappings" and accompanying digital media engine, according to Engadget. At that price, we hope it's easier to operate than the Dr. Octopus keyboard.
