    Makes me smile everytime I see it... Wouldn't mind one, but i doubt they'll ever be less than £70, which makes it more than i'd want to spend on a peripheral... not too mention how long it is, would barely fit on my desk! :O

    Well, I was all for it, but the life-span of the 3-key OLED rendition is only 1 year. I would imagine the full keyboard would be no more, which is a shame.
    New Sig on the Way...

    £70?

    We should be so lucky, I think it'll be hitting triple figures personally. Regardless, I would love one of these, I've been checking up on it since it was announced nearly a year ago. Even if it fails financially it's still an impressive achievement as far as keyboards go.

    That said, if it succeeds and more companies begin to buy into the technology then prices should drop and we'll have a keyboard revolution on our hands.
