Looks interesting...although I think I'd prefer the feel of a real keyboard. It's the same reason I don't like touch-screen devices as much.

Touch based keyboards like these do not provide the tactile feedback needed for precise and accurate as well as speedy typing

What needs to be realized is the Niche this is supposed to be a part of.
This isn't your Gaming keyboard, this is as the article states a keyboard designed for specific enviroments.

Its awesome, but not practical for us.

BURN IT. BURN IT NAO!

What sort of advantages are there having a touch screen instead of physical keys? Just maybe being programmable?

I wouldn't pay $5 for it. The only place for a touchpad keyboard is on a tablet/phone.

Well I think most keyboards are ugly. I really like the low key design.
The fact that there are no keys to clackity clack appeals to me as well.
Then there is the just plain futuristic look to it with the lit keys.
I like gaming but that point onemillionth of a degree delay time does not matter that much to me.
Purely esthetic though I think it's awesome

Or as they say clean rooms, medical facilities, etc etc.
