Das Keyboard 4Q
Smart version of the excellent Das Keyboard 4 model is Das Keyboard 4Q. As well as all the standard features you get with Das Keyboard 4, the 4Q also gives you a range of features designed to make your ‘ fluid ‘ and user-friendly experience. Not only are the smart features here ‘nice to have,’ they are changing the game. The Q software’s power and notifications add up previously unavailable value layers.
For example, for a programmer, say one of your website’s is going down, or you want to monitor a server fault or workflow. The Q apps will remove the reliance on snooze-able applications by providing you with the ability to configure your own RGB tracking. You can identify your own needs, and the keyboard will use various backlit RGB colors to directly feed you information. The ability to configure and identify functions to your specification and needs is exceptional.
Das Keyboard 5Q
The Das Keyboard 5Q has a lot of shared features with a few noticeable and major variations with 4Q. This one is highly optimized for developers, reducing interference by allowing them to configure and monitor their own updates on their own terms. The pre-built Q Applets are opening doors to app information without you having to keep flicking pages, tabs or distracting pop-ups dragging your attention away. You can also write your own custom apps to use yourself or share, as the API is open source. This keyboard is a developer’s dream. There are other notable differences between the 5Q and the other Das Smart Keyboards, including:
