Programmers are a fickle bunch when it comes to their keyboards. While some prefer a massive gaming style keyboard others prefer smaller more compact units that are straight to the point. However the one unifying feature that all programmers like is mechanical key switches. Today WASD Keyboards released a new keyboard aimed specifically at programmers.
WASD says that the new Code 87-Key Mechanical Keyboard was designed by the legendary Jeff Atwood, the creator of Stack Overflow.com. The keyboard came to be after Atwood was unable to find the ideal backlit mechanical keyboard to fit his coding needs. The result is what Atwood says is "the only simple, clean and beautiful backlit keyboard" he's ever found.
The keys are said to feature that distinct tactile pump while remaining quiet and non-clicky. Possibly the coolest feature though is the ability to switch between windows, Mac, Dvorak, and Colemark arrangements at the hardware level via a switch convenient placed under the keyboard. This means users can switch keys around then flip the switch and their set up on a new layout. The keyboard retails for $149.99 and comes in 87 and 104 key varieties.
