Default Possibly the Best Keyboard Ever?

This might be the best keyboard ever: YouTube - CES 2008 - Optimus Maximus keyboard

But for 1.4k, I doubt much people would get one.

I wonder how much a keyboard made by Apple using their touch-screen technology/or similar would cost? It would look just like an iPhone or iPod touch but keyboard length. It would not have good tactile feedback but you could simply download keyboard templates, a mouse surface, game profiles, etc. It could even have a cray 'keyboard screensaver'

I was almost ready to second the good captain's suggestion, but then I noticed the track ball in the middle of it... WTH did that come from???? :)

There's still nothing on the market like the old AT/XT IBM keyboards. Great solid tactile feel, and you can drive a truck over them every day for a year without destroying them. :)

Heh... "That's a problem... when you give such an easy tool to make tasteless things, people just immediately start to explore it"....... :)

Pretty cool looking though.

It was out before 2008 though :p First time we heard about it was ~ 5 years ago. And it was only suppose to be $400. There went that idea.

Ha. Well, I'd still think this is the best keyboard ever.. Partially because I never owned any other keyboard, other than my trusty stock Compaq keyboard, and I've had this for.. I dunno.. About 5 years?

I should really get an upgrade..
