Programable Keyboards with Onboard Memory

By Xah Lee. Date: . Last updated: .

Here's list of programable keyboards with onboard memory. Meaning, once you programed the keys, you can plug in the keyboard to any other computer, running linux or Mac or Microsoft Windows, and your keys will work. No need internet connection, no need to program the key again.

Note: many gaming keyboards, in particular those by Razer and Corsair, require you to have internet connection (aka cloud) for your customized keys to work. Often, the keyboard won't even work as a basic keyboard when used with Linux.
