The quote at the end seems rather interesting. This technology would we be cool on the next intel Powerbooks, that boot to OSX and Vista

The keyboard looks good but the guy's mouse would be hard to get used to.

There are like 5 threads on this already, and it's not LCD tech used, it's OLED, from what I've read.

I will get one as soon as it is available.

Hopefully there won't be issues with keys breaking or going out..

It was just a simple concept that took off, and now everyone wants one.

IT DOESN'T EXIST!!!!!

I like the quote toward the end of the article:
"We hope it will be released in 2006. It will cost less than a good mobile phone".

So, a good mobile phone costs around $200. That's a little much for a keyboard.

pretty darn cool, but as hard as i seem to type, i'd probably break it in a day. i agree with you on the mouse ic1, that mouse looks like a weapon or something, not a mouse, very strange form factor.

$200 isn't too much for me for that keyboard.

define good cell phone thow

are we talking excellent reception - poor set of features
or decent reception - alot of features

in my opinion, a good cell phone boarders 300

my cell phone weights in around 900 (nokia 9500)

thinkgeek.com gets a cool keyboard every once in a while and they are usually expensive for a keyboard (150+ - 300+)

not sure i like the idea of being os independent. id like the keyboard to know i've switched to photoshop and load the photoshop keys

or that im in bbedit doing php and move " ( [ . to more common locations

now for that... $400 is fine with me.

wireless would be even better, but i doubt transfering even the simplest images would take less than 10 seconds in total for the whole keyboard. if it could do it while photoshop loaded (even on a g5 it takes a few seconds), fine, but anything more and it would be bad.

just thoughts

OMG! OMG! OMG! I want one so BAAAAAD!

Finally, a keyboard I would not be ashamed to pair up with my 23" Al display and PMG5. I have SO got to get one.

/doesn't always act like a giddy school girl. tee hee hee.

I think they keyboard will include extra keys that tell the keyboard to switch. I.E. a photoshop key that when pressed changes the keyboard layout

Now that's just flat out cool. I can see this being a valuable tool for lots of public kiosk solutions or for individuals who aren't as computer savvy the keyboard can be made more literal.

I hope the keyboard knows when and how to switch from a visual keyboard to a regular keyboard at various times when it needs to.

The keyboard doesn't change the function of the keys, just what is displayed on them.
