Silly or cool? Mad Catz’s keyboard with a display for gamers (video)

At the opening press reception for the Consumer Electronics Show, Mad Catz Interactive showed off a new keyboard for gamers: the S.T.R.I.K.E.7.

The S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 Gaming Keyboard has the odd feature of having its own built-in display. You can use that display to customize the keyboard to exactly what you want for your gaming purposes. Mad Catz says that the “actuation force” has to be just right for your fingers or the long gaming sessions you play will take their toll over time.

You can also use the display to set the color of the backlight for your keyboard. Here’s a description of the keyboard in the video below.
