I'm a new member here because I found the website for this keyboard and googling for more info on it found this thread.
Anyone have any feeling for how real / serious this company is? They list August 12, 2010 as the pre-release order date. I had my heart set on the Miniguru, but with that project canceled, this one looks interesting. From earlier comments in this thread and a few other threads, seems they've made some changes based on feedback. They say there will be a limited run of 1,000 keyboards made.
Makes me wonder why if they think they can be successful with only 1,000 units, why couldn't Miniguru be successful at 1,000 units. I doubt the additional components amounted to that much of a difference in production costs.
I still would have preferred the Miniguru, though this keyboard's ergonomic concept is enticing. I do like their idea of not having staggered keys, but rather having them placed in a row at the angle your hands/fingers are pointed. I'm a pretty fast touch-typist, but it is definitely less natural for me to hit the keys off the home row using my left hand, being my fingers need to move off the the left/right rather than straight in the same direction my fingers are pointed.
