It's not going to be cheap, especially if each key is a changeable display. That's the equivalent of 110 displays.

I also really doubt the february date, as i've seen this before with an old release date on it. I'd love to see one in person, but if it's not < $100, I probably won't own one.

That's exactly what they said. No more than a good phone.

araracd: It was only presented as a design study less than a year ago :bangin: :bangin: :bangin:

It is supposed to use OLEDs, right? They don't need much power ;-)

So now we know the price is somewhere between $50 and $1 000, :p

Seriously though, if it ended up being even $250, and I weren't saving up for a car, I might have considered buying it. I mean, every key is a lit display, how cool is that?

Yeah, I'd wait a few generations, until the price comes down a bit, and until my current keyboard goes kaput. I definetly want one though!

i'm pretty sure this will cost a lot more than $100. there are logitech keyboards that cost $100 but are nowhere near as fancy!
