Whoa... cool. Very slutty in a techie sort of way.

I've actually been wondering about a replacement keyboard for the main rig... since I got my Powerbook with the backlit keyboard I've been wishing my main one was like it.

Anyone know of anything? USB, Mac.

That is a great keyboard, brilliant idea! They say it will cost the same as a good cell phone. So about how much is that? (I only know cheap cell phones!)

I'd guess a good cell phone is around $400.

hmmm... cool idea... but i'd be worried about it's reliability. I don't exactly treat my keyboard very nicely... i've also split coffee on it countless times yet its been running good for 4 years and only cost me $30.

Something like that looks like a disaster waiting to happen in my hands.


particularly with all the extra innards... looks like its backlit too which can't be good for those who have there computers running for a long time.

this is the ****....i hope it comes with software to make your own keyboard layouts...and a forum or site you can submit your layouts too but most importantly, be able to make your own icons for the keys thumbsup

Yeh, I thought 'oh goodness, another crome nonsense keyboard', but this looks very cool... BUT overcomplicated, and vaporware :-(

When I first saw a SCSI card with dedicated 80386 processor, i though omg, what is the world coming to if the harddisk has it's own processor ... this thing probably has a built-in 64Mb card in case you would want your key's icons to be 3D


Very cool though, handy for the dark (control) room

Price is very cool if you take in mind that a ProTools or Logic colored normal keyboard costs $250 already...
