    Cool! Bit worried by the out-of-date info on the site and that clicking on the "Coming Next" thing doesn't seem to work, though...

    Well they will only ask for money once they are ready to ship so it's only really and expression of interest at this point.

    One of their other prototypes that they demoed in the video segment was a playstation type controller with the back typing lcd panel below it.

    Rise from the dead necro thread rise I tell thee follow your masters commands.

    Lol.

    Looks like they gave up on that particular thing and have moved on to a new version grippity.com goes to their kickstarter.

    I got that email, too - but wasn't brave enough to risk summoning a zombie thread!

    Now it's shambling, I'll add that recently I picked up an iTable Keyboard for under 20 (possibly under a tenner) new from eBay, but can't get there from work.

    Pros: Small and light, can light up keys, battery life seems good, USB charging, touchpad easy to get hang of, price (if you don't pay RRP)
    Cons: Not great for typing - backspace is on a Function Key, as is Windows (so no W8 shortcuts) though the arrows, ESC and backspace are on the Fn keys, so this means most of the ones you might want to control your media machine are there.

    Worth a punt for a tenner.
