What will they think of next? Cloud-connected can openers, perhaps?

https://www.daskeyboard.com/p/5q-cloud- ... -keyboard/
The Das Keyboard 5Q is a cloud-connected keyboard allowing users to display colour notifications on each key. Notifications can come from applications such as Twitter, Gmail, eBay, Facebook and many others. Hundreds of applications can be configured via IFTTT and Zapier, transforming the 5Q keyboard into an RGB dashboard. An open REST API is also available for programmers.
$US249 to boot.

So it's basically a keyboard with an rgb LED behind each key. Feels way overpriced and oversold to me. Still some sucker will buy it.

I can imagine you tossing and composting manure-caked straw with a cloud-connected pitchfork.
