i saw one of these at siggraph last year. Cool stuff, but i dont think its going to really take off or even come close to replaceing a standard keyboard. 1 reason. No tacktile feedback. humans need this. You need to know when your actually pushing the button, otherwise it just feels weird. Its ok for light typeing but anything over a paragraph and you want a real keyboard.
I've found that I can type faster on my laptop keyboard than desktop- and i'm posative this has to do with the key travel. Maybe bleep bleep is all i need for feedback.
they say there will be a bluetooth version. Both desktop and PDA are bluetooth here. I'm ordering one ASAP. BTW the picture on the linked page is a little misleading. the device is a little smaller, akin to a small cellphone or giant lighter (like my old zippo with the watch in it )
I can't wait...
car computer rev 5: 8" lilliput and usual suspects
Went to the CES show in Vegas and tried one of these units. Works really well but you have to be a little careful since it's easy to hit other buttons. Also, you will not get sensory feedback and tha can take some getting used to.
P.S. - The CES show is awesome, I highly recommend a trip there for anyone.
