Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E.7 Keyboard Is Some Sort of Transformers Keyboard… I Think

Edit: If you’re interested in our thoughts on the S.T.R.I.K.E.7 keyboard, we have a review up!
I own a Cyborg R.A.T.7. I love the customization options that comes with this ugly little device. It feels comfortable, I like the weight stuff, heck I feel bad that I’m not using one of those “gaming surfaces” for it.
Evidently, someone thought it was a fantastic idea to bring the concept of the R.A.T.7 and make a keyboard out of it. What you see above is the outcome: The Cyborg S.T.R.I.K.E.7 from Mad Catz.
So what in the living hell is on this thing? There’s an LCD Touchscreen called the V.E.N.O.M. (I’m sure each of these things is an acronym for somethng… I hope) that allows you to set programing options. The whole right side of the keyboard can be detached, in case you need the real estate room or you’re packing the keyboard to go and you have no use for the numpad. In that situation, it sounds like you can bind the WASD keys to the cursor keys if needed.
Like the crazy binding and modular control that we’ve seen so far with the MLG Controller, the S.T.R.I.K.E. can have its parts shuffled all over the place. The touchscreen can be attached to the numpad module, the palm rests can be removed, and I’m sure you can probably forgo all the fancy stuff if you really wanted to.
The S.T.R.I.K.E.7 comes at a hefty price point of $299.99, leaving this to the hardcore PC gamer. I’m almost certain this thing can make coffee for you… or dispense energy drinks.
