    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.
