    Gutted doesn't even cover it...

    I'd love one, not only for photoshop,etc - but as my housemate uses a Dvorak layout, drives me mental when I sit at one of the machines hes just been on and the layouts muddled - at least with one of these you could see...

    the new concept for them has just one big colour haptic touchscreen.

    It looks amazing...

    Engadget posted a brief review and gallery of these when they released some review units in February(!). The downer was that apparently they aren't very nice to type on.

    I remember pictures of the original prototype being made about 4/5 years ago, and since thought it was just going to become a myth.

    Nice to see them being made tbh.

    That seems a very much logical step for laptops/tablets/etc wonder if it will work in practice?

    Presumably a single OLED area of the concept would save considerably on cost, but at the expense of losing the tactile feel of raised keys. Although would be a far more sensible business model than individual, programmable OLED keys......

    that's if you can even say that OLED technology in a keyboard is a business model. This sort of stuff should be strictly R&D until the costs come down shurely. This is a niche within a niche at that price.
