Imagine the following scenario: your team is about to make the final push into the enemy lines. It’s the last opportunity to scrape out a win, and you’ll need to put everything on the line to make it happen. It’ll take every second of your concentration. The stakes are high, you’re in the zone, tensions are mounting… Right before the critical moment your phone rings, and you have a choice to make: return to the real world, or stay in the zone? Either way, the moment’s been compromised… Or has it? What if you could do both?

What if a device could keep you connected in both worlds, simultaneously – or at least allow you to seamlessly switch between the two with the press of a button? That’s what Roccat hopes to accomplish with their new Skeltr Smart Communication RGB Gaming Keyboard. Bluetooth connectivity and on-board switches to flip between your computer and mobile device allow a user to respond to messages and answer calls at the press of a button.

Complimented by the usual multi-zone RGB controls and accented by Roccat features like EasyShift[+] and the ability to talk to other Roccat devices, the Roccat Skeltr offers a heaping of features designed to keep modern gamers connected. Benchmark Reviews has an opportunity to “Master Worlds” with a Roccat Skeltr – let’s take a look.
