Genius Releases new Customizable Keyboard

by Greg DeVriesMarch 1, 2012

Genius has announced the Imperator Pro, a new, highly customizable keyboard targeted at the gaming sector. They keyboard features 6 macro buttons and 3 different macro profiles, for a total of 18 different macros. This could be of great use, for example, a WoW player could have his Group macros, solo and in town macros. A gaming mode turns off the windows key to prevent accidental shortcut input that could take the user out of the game. The keyboard is designed to be comfortable and natural to use. Other features include:

  • Full speed professional gaming keyboard for MMO/RTS gamers
  • Up to 18 macro keys assignment
  • Full color 16 million pulsating RGB backlight with 3 levels of brightness and speed
  • Designed with up to 18 anti-ghost keys
  • 6 easy access media keys
  • Blue LED power indicator
  • 2 USB ports for additional peripheral connections
  • On-board memory to prevent command block

This looks to be a pretty powerful and adaptable keyboard. Definitely not for the casual user, who likely won’t take advantage of its numerous advanced features. But if you’re in the market for a high-end gaming keyboard, be sure to check it out. The Imperator Pro retails for $99.

    I have the 2.1 version update but when I pull up the option to use the genius feature, a pop up says “genius playlists are not enabled. Use itunes to empower genius playlists.” I already got the genius function on my itunes version 8. But, it nonetheless does not work.


    I was taking a search at the Yamaha Clavinova, the CLP Series. I had my eye on the CLP-340PE, CLP-380PE, and the CLP-S308PE models, but do not know which a single to choose. I can only go with a slim one. I have place for the ones listed, but do not know which 1 to choose. Any ideas? Thanks!

    We listen to how tech firms have free of charge meals, totally free dry cleaning, arcade rooms, and a quantity of other perks for employees. How come we never listen to (or why don’t) non-tech firms have these perks?

    This may be picky but its a feature i like to have, i recently brought a miccrosoft keyboard, im pleased with it but there is no caps lock, scroll lock or num lock activation lights on it, so i dont know if they are on or not. I was wondering if the logitech dinovo edge, mx 5500 revoloution have these lights?
    if possible do the g15, g19 gaming keyboads have these too?

    How to become a genius like Bill Gate or Jerry Yang of Yahoo? What step should we take to become a genius like Bill Gate or Jerry Yang? Is it long step? What major to take or what books to read or what subject to take?

    Just bought an ipad off ebay and It comes with another year of applecare. I don’t want to inherit the problems of the last user so I would rather get my ipad swapped at the genius bar. What do I have to say to the genius’ to get them to swap it if everything seems to be ok?

    I’ve got ADD/ADHD and have learned to mix it with my creative juices. I have an unrelenting curiosity and I naturally learn things. I also cannot remember anything, consequently killing my grades throughout school. People think I’m an idiot, however I’ve been sitting on hundreds of ground-breaking ideas. I can come up with unique ideas for anything. I’ve got a problem though. No one knows who I am, and nearly everybody thinks I’m a dumbass, even my own parents. I keep to myself for the most part, and have only recently revealed a couple of ideas to friends, who were amazed. I am at a transition point similiar to Einsteins, as people thought he was mentally retarded. I do not know where to go from here, and without the support of my parents I feel like taking a hammer to my head. I am usually very humble about my talents, however I need some guidance from someone. — P.S. Sorry about not using the ‘genius lingo’.
    and to distinguish myself from those who make similiar fake claims, here is a breif description of my talents: My creativity ranges from music to perfecting the act of shooting a basketball. I’ve recieved recognition for my artwork, photography, etching, as well as graphic design work. I have begun to write movie scripts, as well as my first novel. I study philosophy, and have explored a few undiscovered realms. I’ve invented a new form of government (actually it would be an updated form of democracy) that would revitalize American politics, the best plan for ‘world peace’ possible (although politicians today would be unwilling), and created the future of the internet and computers (currently in the works). Since I have just recently learned of my potential, all of this, and a ton more, has been done within a year. I do not wish to have to prove myself, however, I feel people will laugh when they initially read the question.

    I’m just starting to learn to play the piano. I want to buy a keyboard since it is portable and more affordable, but I prefer one with good piano sounds. I dont care about the synthesizers features. I just want to play pop, soul and r&b songs, not classical. What features should I look for? Do I really need 88 keys?

    I’m not bashing him or anything, I just don’t understand what people see. Can anyone explain why he is considered musical genius?
