... Really? Having kids counts as doing something with your life in your world? No offense, but that's about the farthest thing from doing something in your life ever.

INB4 angry down-votes from people that have only achieved having children.

Check out the screenshot!
This makes me want to go and wipe out of all humanity for letting the culture sink so low.

Yeah, the Beatles should never have bothered with Sergeant Pepper, Hendrix should have never have put out Electric Ladyland, Arthur Lee should have canned Forever Changes.

They could have been so much more by just flouncing around in a video murmuring 'Yo, Britney, bitch'.

Writting Electro Pop music and even pop music is hard work. The progress of will.i.am and pop music on a while is based now on technology and computer programing.

Like i said before singer , bands and artists have to do more then just make music these days. Will.i.am is embracing the tehnology that he makes music with and seeing what else he can come up with.

Nothing wrong with that. Here's Tosin Abasi's band.

Clearly he needs to drop the complex arrangements for 'dope beatz' and get more bitches and Bentleys in the video.

You're clearly not the target market for high quality digital recordings

Just another clueless celeb with too much money trying to get involved in things they know very little about.

I don't even know what you're talking about... shows how old you are. Anyway, you're the kind of person that think Justin Bieber will be seen as "great" someday. which is impossible.

We are living in a time where it is important for pop stars to generate income from other forms of creativity.
No, people are not liking it because it is ill conceived and ugly. This guy does not need to generate income from 'other forms of creativity' as you put it he has and is still earning millions from the music industry.

So does that mean we should live in a culture that we place people in boxes and tell them to stay still? Like i said before the music he produces involves alot of the technology he wants to help create and expand. One one making millions and millions off music anymore , we have illegal downloads to thank for that.

And we have greedy record companies to thank for piracy, since they kept trying to force people to pay full-price for CDs even though anyone with half a brain could have seen that what people really wanted were affordable downloads. Piracy only became truly popular because it filled a niché that the recording industry seemed incapable of admitting existed. When they finally saw the need to get up to date music piracy trickled away in popularity; sure some people still do it, but it's never going to be possible to completely do away with it, but it's far from costing artists the millions that they'll claim.

Like anyone with too much money Will.i.am thinks he's something he's not but unfortunately he can buy his way into an industry that he knows nothing about so he can produce insanely overpriced products of little real value. For £100 you could get a far superior digital camera, which anyone serious about taking pictures should do, and for £50 you could get a really good physical keyboard for your iPhone, which anyone serious about typing should do. This is greatly preferable to spending £300 on a slightly better camera (at best, I'm not convinced there would be a discernible enough difference as any professional wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole), and a barely usable fold-out keyboard that you don't need, all so you can take a slim, stylish phone and make it bulky, vulgar and repulsive?

Not sure what your trying to say here, this guy can do whatever he wants to earn some extra cash but it doesn't change the fact that this thing is ill conceived and ugly as I said in my original comment. Also in 2012 his net worth was estimated at $75million and considering you say no one is making millions from music any more that's a pretty impressive figure. While it is true that many musicians are struggling these days 'music industry' types like this are still raking it in. This guy is deluding himself that he can design tech products and has enough money waste developing this vulgar camera keyboard thing. He is probably surrounded by an entourage of yes men that have all told how how good am idea it is which as simply added to his delusion.

I'm quite disgusted at what I've seen in this and the other thread. There's some seriously questionable vitriol at work here and it's just coming across as a load of entitled rich white kids piling in.
I haven't read every post in this thread, but my criticism is of the products usefulness, or lack thereof, and Will.i.am's willingness to put his name on something that will likely end up in local landfills within weeks of purchase...if anyone buys it at all.

It's irresponsible of Will.i.am to put his name behind such a wasteful product especially after he's been active in pushing for things like sustainable products in past years. He has no influence over my buying decisions, but I'm sure he does with many of his fans. If people are attacking him for being a hypocrite by ego branding expensive pointless landfilling junk it's deserved.

He earned the $75Million from music and other activities related to the music industry. It is clear however that he is deluding himself in the creation of this device. He isn't going to earn anything from this and it will have cost plenty to develop. That is what is so misguided here, he has lost the plot with this and it is merchandising gone mad. I don't suppose you can see the folly of this as you are probably one of the poor saps that get taken in by this sort of crap then go out and buy it, seems like that is your delusion mate.
