        If this is really going to be sold for $99.99 then I'm going to be the first one to have IT

          whatever happened to the sensors you strap arround your wrists? now that would be a cool typing solution.

          $99 is definately low enough that the 'cool' factor will make me buy one though

            Thats kinda old isn't it? I saw it a few years ago in a Popular Science magazine. Still be awesome technology to intergrate into a car system.

              yeah, the tech has been around, but it has not been commercially available

                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 don't feel my touchscreen's buttons pressing either.

                    But I sure do like it.

                    Besides, they can always add sound for feedback, and besides, movable parts and tactile feedback are habits that people get use too.

                    I bet you can type faster on that keyboard than a regular one. Sorta like how old typewriters would jam up if typed to fast.

                    Hey, you want feedback, get a non powered typewriter.

                      it already does have sound

                      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...

                        who knows, maybe it wont be a problem, but it'll sure take some getting use to.

                          True true, but if you turn on Windows XP's On Screen Keyboard you may be doing just that.

                          Co-Pilot also has a On Screen Keyboard.

                            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.
