SteelSeries has released a keypad that is capable of displaying certain light effects when an e-mail is received, for example, using rgb illumination. The light effects also work with Discord.
The Apex M750 mechanical keyboard can display all sorts of light effects in all sorts of colors. Specifically, there is support for the popular voip program Discord. For example, via light effects on the keyboard, such as a flashing numeric part of the keyboard, the user can see when a new message arrives.
Also, via light effects, it can be seen what the current mute status is within Discord and who is currently talking. There is also specific light support for Dota 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, which focuses on the horizontal row of numeric keys and the w, a, s, and d keys.

The keyboard uses mechanical QX2 switches. They should be quiet and have a life span of 50 million keystrokes. The keys have an activation point of 2mm, with the length of the travel 4mm; It is not necessary to press the key all the way to activate the function of the key. The keyboard is made of aluminum and weighs almost 1kg.
The light effects are also available on, for example, the Rival 700 of SteelSeries, a game-mouse with an OLED screen.
