Corsair just started selling the backlit FPS key caps that come on the K70 keyboard.

These are actually pretty nice, but I could definitely do without the wrist rest.....

Wish they just had the keycaps. I don't really have a use for the wrist rest.  :/

I was checking these out at Fry's the other day.  I have to say, they are actually pretty neat - the color is a metallic red and the rubber top is pretty soft and very textured.  Pretty cool.  Also, the wrist rest is the case for the caps and puller. 
wut. i'd buy a ****ty IBM board for that green V2

For $15 including wrist rest is not bad, and you can always give the wrist rest away.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But that’s incorrect. It’s in HHKB’s slogan, but when America’s cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

FPS keycaps are a must if you’re serious about first-person shooters.

I chuckled.

They do sell just the keycaps but only from the K60:

I think the darker red and translucent keys for backlighting for the k70 look a little better though.

The wrist rest will also work on the blackwidow keyboard.

IMO the "FPS keycaps are a must if you’re serious about first-person shooters" part was, well, a bit wierd. Not as strange as Razer's claims about the "Deathstalker Ultimate" though.

Been looking for a a set of keycaps that have a different relief so when I get my Oculus Rift I can actually tell where to place my fingers... these look like they pretty much what i want.
