The Das Keyboard 5Q is a smart keyboard that can display color notifications. Notifications come from Twitter, Gmail, eBay, Facebook and many others online services. Hundreds of applications can be configured via the Q marketplace, IFTTT and Zapier. A REST API is available for programmers.

The Das Keyboard Q Software lets you program all buttons on your Das Keyboard. The Q Software also allows you to update the firmware to your Das Keyboard. You can add applets to keep track of your stock or create RGB profiles for different programs and keys.
