The ZBoard is a specially designed keyboard for gamers. (Check out the “what it is” flash animation and click “See it in action”.) It’s like a “skinnable” keyboard in that you can remove the standard qwerty keys and add a new game-specific face. The ZBoard retails for about $50 and the foldable keysets are $20 a piece and come in a variety of flavors (Doom3, EverQuest). The labeled keys are laid out differently, depending on the game.

This looks cool, but I’m not into pc gaming enough to determine if this really adds more than just reassigning keys to the standard keyboard. What do the gamers think? Would this enhance the gameplay experience? Is it worth the cost?
