    Definitely a 10 on the cool factor. Have to say though that it strikes me as a triumph of form over function. And I have to wonder about the durability of such a design. Long way to go before it's funded much less put into production. Will be interesting to watch.

    My thoughts? Really bulky and simply unnecessary. I'd be surprised if the Kickstarted project gets fully funded.

    I agree. Too thick and bulky. I prefer Apple's Keyboard; the one without the port plug. I would love a case that can accommodate it.

    There are a number of them, starting with Incase's Origami Workstation. Try a search of this forum on "Apple Wireless Keyboard" and you should turn up a couple. At least one of them that also held the iPad, not just the keyboard, was posted in the last two weeks or so; I and several others discussed it, just can't remember the name right now.

    The "Blade Runner" one does nothing at all for me, but from watching the Kickstarter funding so far, it obviously has a geek quotient going for it, because I think they're not going to have trouble reaching their goal at this rate.

    I bought my Apple KB because it is thin, light weight, and it fits my bag. I have discovered that the iPad soft keyboard works quite well, so I hardly use the KB.
