    Remember that ridiculously expensive Optimus Maximus keyboard? Well, we've finally found a reason to spend $1500 on one...so you can play DOOM 2 on a single key. I'm a bit surprised he didn't spread the game display across all the keys, instead of just one.

    Or play 50 different games at the same time. One on each key.

    Imagine if laptop touchpads had a built in LCD to work as a 2nd touchscreen interface.

    Just more proof that if somebody can they will. Not because they want to, but really just because.

    Yeah, should have spread it out over more keys. Playing Doom on something smaller than a postage stamp is hard.

    That would almost make it worth it, almost.

    That would've been a feat, this is a gimmick. And spreading it out on all the keys, well that would actually need work. And I don't think the thing could handle it.

    I wish I had bought one when I could they have been sold out a long time right? I go over and check every once in a while.
