New keyboard that is in the works

Some have called it "vaporware", but it is still in the development stages.

I feel compelled to share this with everyone here. I don't know when it will be available or how much it will cost (I'm sure it will be out of my price range) but I want one. I think many others may want one too.

Doesn't seem to be vaporware at all.

If they can do that, then the full size keyboard would be believable, just super expensive.

I've known about these for a long while now. I've actually been patiently waiting for at least 2 years now. I wouldn't say it to be vaporware; They do have the technology (i.e., the three-button board). I signed up for the mailing list some time ago and they have actually come out with some updates.

It really is some fantastic piece of technology. I know several people who've been asking santa for one several times now...

I can see it being fairly close to production by now.
There are already keyboards w/ various displays that are "situationally aware", this seems like a pretty logical next step.

Unfortunately, it doesn't look very comfortable to type on though.

From what I've heard the full keyboard cost too much to make so now they are doing the 3 button thing. The cost is still going to be very high though.

Striker; not true. They have every intention of bringing it out. But youre right in one sence... Only the hardcore tech guys will be dishing out that kind of money until the price drops. Like they said- about the price of a new cellphone. Say 350 to 450? we'll see.

Did some research and it looks like my info was a little outdated. They originally scrapped the full color keyboard and went to a B/W version. They then decided to do the color version as of December 8th. The whole keyboard is predicted to cost around $1200. The 3 keyed one is $160.
